An enduringly popular worktop with plenty of classic charm. Oak worktops will mature and darken gradually, deepening to perfection over time. The natural integrity of solid wood ensures versatility and resilience while the oak's strong grain adds real character to the work surface.
The Worktop Express® best-selling collection is carefully crafted from only the finest-quality raw material, providing incomparable strength, beauty and durability. Constructed from high-pressure glued, finger-jointed, 40mm wide staves, we supply our A grade oak kitchen worktops square-edged and fully sanded to a 150 grit smoothness but otherwise untreated, allowing you to finish the wood worktops to your preference prior to installation. These affordable solid wood worktops 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, solid oak creates extremely durable, naturally beautiful kitchen work surfaces that are sure to reassure you of your purchase for years to come.
We provide the UK with the finest quality solid hardwood worktops for less.
We are proud to employ a strong environmental policy, manufacturing oak work surfaces from sustainably-sourced timber. 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 solid oak 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.
