Bamboo is one of the world's most sustainable materials. Bamboo worktops are full of character, with a straight grain pattern separated neatly by nodes and a beautiful golden surface. Unlike other timber species - which often take several decades to reach full growth - Bamboo is harvested every 5-6 years and replanting is extremely regular. A bamboo worktop is also hardwearing and naturally watertight, thanks to its innovative and unique formulation: being constructed from compressed, layered sections of timber rather than finger-jointed staves.
The Worktop Express® best-selling collection is carefully crafted from only the finest-quality raw material, providing incomparable strength, beauty and durability. Our bamboo worktops are constructed from high-pressure glued 20mm wide staves that are between 4-6mm thick. These are then joined in a layered construction to create a 40mm thick worktop. We supply our A grade bamboo kitchen worktops square-edged and fully sanded to a 150 grit smoothness but otherwise untreated, allowing you to finish the wooden worktops to your preference prior to installation. These affordable bamboo block surfaces are available directly to the public, saving customers over 75% off high-street kitchen prices. Rapid UK delivery, high quality product and great value are guaranteed.
Built to stand the test of time in the busiest of households, bamboo creates resilient, eco-friendly and characterful wood worktops that are sure to reassure you of your purchase for years to come.
When cutting your bamboo kitchen worktop to size, you may notice the occasional appearance of small gaps within the exposed cross-section of the cut edge. This is not a manufacturing fault but a natural occurrence due to the bamboo's layered construction. You will find this is easily remedied with a small application of an appropriate filler.
We provide the UK with the finest quality solid hardwood worktops for less.
We are proud to employ a strong environmental policy, manufacturing worktops from sustainably-sourced material. Furthermore, we make full use of our product matter, using offcuts to create samples and to fuel our biomass heating system. As a result we have no wastage. For more detailed information on our policies for bamboo wooden worktops, please visit our environmental page.

More than just a supplier
Worktop Express™: the UK's leading online solid wood worktop specialist.
Worktop Express is a distribution company in the true sense of the word and thus cost-effectiveness is built into our business model.
Our large stock holding - over 10,000+ worktops in stock at any time across our distribution network - and sheer purchasing power dictates that the prices we can provide direct to the public and trade are extremely competitive. We do not share the same overheads as high-street stores (on average an initial 270% markup tends to be applied just to cover warehousing and staff costs) and therefore can achieve similar profit margins without overcharging customers. Our direct internet delivery model allows us to minimise costs in relation to retail premises and storage as our advanced stock ordering and handling process limits the amount of 'dead-stock'.
With Worktop Express there is simply no middleman: we even operate our own in-house 2Man delivery service to maximise efficiency. When you choose Worktop Express, you are choosing a group of specialists who devote their expert attention to every step of the process and are single-handedly responsible for sourcing, stocking, marketing and distributing the product. Ensuring that we are the only link between the customer and manufacturer allows us to offer the most up-to-date products for lower prices than any other online retailer.
The belief that superb quality can go hand-in-hand with affordability is a lynchpin of the Worktop Express ethos. As a result we are confident that the Worktop Express product range far outstrips the quality of anything you will find on the high street - and often at a fraction of the cost.
