If you are looking for a kitchen countertop with the same aesthetic as our solid oak but at an even better price, look no further. These engineered oak worktops perfectly combine beauty, durability and affordability to deliver work surfaces that enhance any cooking area. Oak has versatility and a timeless quality that allows for seamless integration into any kitchen style, be it traditional or contemporary.
These oak veneer worktops have been created using a core of robust composite wooden particle board affixed with 3mm think real oak veneer. This top layer covers all visible sides, giving the worktop an 'oak grain' end to replicate the appearance of solid wood. The surface is sanded to 150 grit before a coat of Danish oil is applied for a flawlessly smooth finish. Furthermore, in the event of an accident, they can be easily repaired in the same way as solid wood.
The veneer itself is constructed from 40mm staves of prime AB grade solid European oak which gives it the look of our bestselling soli oak worktops. Available in 2m or 3m lengths, they have a depth of 38mm and measure 635mm wide. This makes them compatible with Ikea kitchen cabinets without the need to reduce their width via cutting.

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.
Still not convinced? Try our great-value sample service: you'll be glad you did.
