Worktops are the crowning glory of any kitchen: as such, choosing the right surface can have a huge impact on the final look. Our Black Star Earthstone worktops are available in a range of different sizes to suit the space you have available, and boast a matt finish that is the perfect, low-maintenance option for even the busiest kitchen. The black worktop range features small chips of varying grey shades and the occasional white highlight, producing an attractive dark stone effect surface which is cool to the touch.
Designed to provide an affordable alternative to quartz surfaces with all the benefits of a laminate worktop, Earthstone is comprised of 6mm solid acrylic and a 28mm FSC-approved wooden particle board core - for a high-performance 34mm thick worktop. A moisture barrier is fixed across the bottom of the surface to ensure water damage is prevented. These Black Star Earthstone worktops look similar to natural stone surfaces but can be purchased for a lower price, and is also easier to install - no templating is required. A truly seamless look can be achieved with Earthstone worktops thanks to the coordinating jointing adhesive, giving each surface the appealing look of a custom creation.
Our black acrylic worktops are non-porous, and are resistant to mould, mildew, bacterial growth and most household stains, making them a hygienic, easy-to-clean option. All that is required to clean is a wipe with a soft cloth and some warm soapy water; moreover, minor repairs are simple to carry out, meaning that you can keep these black kitchen surfaces looking like new for years to come.

Worktop Express® is a distribution company in the truest sense of the word; and cost-effectiveness is built into our business model.
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 in the market for lower prices than any other retailer.
Our large stock holding - over 20,000 worktops are held in stock at any time across various locations - 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 - but without overcharging customers! Our direct internet delivery model and advanced stock ordering allows us to minimise costs.
We have five strategically-placed depots throughout the UK, all of which are serviced by an impressive fleet of in-house delivery vehicles. As a result, we are able to offer an unparalleled delivery service: cost-effective, consistent, and prompt.
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.
