Adding a decorative work surface is a great way to update an ageing kitchen. Our oak block laminate worktops pair the appealing look of natural wood grain with the low-maintenance characteristics that laminate worktops are known for.
These oak effect work surfaces are made from high-quality composite wooden particle board, which forms the robust core. A decorative layer is then applied and sealed under high heat and pressure to create a long-lasting, scratch and water-resistant surface. An ideal choice for accommodating a busy modern lifestyle, our affordable oak effect work surfaces are extremely easy to clean, requiring only warm soapy water and a soft cloth.
Purchase beautiful oak effect worktops with Worktop Express® and benefit from next-day delivery on orders placed before 12 noon. Our worktops are delivered to all eligible postcodes by our in-house 2Man delivery team, ensuring that your goods are delivered safely and on time.
All wood effect countertops measure 38mm thick and are simple to cut to size if necessary. Matching edging trim and easy-to-follow installation instructions are also included.
If you are looking for a complement to your worktop, matching Oak Block kitchen upstands can be purchased on our website. Create a seamless join between your wall and work surface with this attractive laminate worktop accessory.

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.
