Stainless steel looks great in any modern kitchen but - as most steel worktops are made to measure - can be an expensive worktop option. Our brushed steel effect laminate work surfaces are a fantastic alternative to stainless steel worktops and are perfect for creating a realistic metal surface for your home. With a semi-gloss finish that is enhanced by evocative hints of grey and brown, our stainless steel effect work surfaces add a professional edge to any style of kitchen.
These brushed steel effect laminate work surfaces are durable and hardwearing, and - unlike real metal - are resistant to scratching. They're also extremely low maintenance, and require no more than a quick wipe with a soft cloth and some warm soapy water to keep them clean. Manufactured from a core of FSC-approved composite wooden particle board to which the top decorative layer is bonded under high heat and pressure, these countertops are also water resistant.
We are able to offer next-day delivery for orders of laminate stainless steel worktops that are placed before 12 noon. These deliveries will be made by our in-house 2Man service - please read our 'Delivery Information' page for more insight into this premium option.
Laminate work surfaces can be cut to size and, at 38mm thick, this brushed steel option can be cut on site easily if needed. Alternatively, we do offer a laminate worktop cutting service which includes options for sink, hob or tap cut-outs. Unfortunately next-day delivery is unavailable for bespoke orders so do bear this in mind before you make a purchase.
This worktop is water resistant but any edges that are left exposed following cutting will need to be covered with a brushed steel worktop edging strip to protect against water ingress.
2Man Next Day Delivery Service: from £25.00 for the first worktop, plus £15.00 for each additional worktop (charges capped at four worktops). Order before 12noon for next-day delivery.
Our in-house 2Man delivery service allows us to cover the vast majority of orders nationwide and minimises the risk of transit damage - we are proud to have a 98% first time delivery success rate. With this service we also provide a two-hour timeslot and a courtesy call 30 minutes before delivery. Our online booking system allows you to select your delivery date during checkout, either for immediate delivery, or for a date in the future if necessary. Collection from our depots can also be arranged within 1-2 working days of ordering.
In addition to our 2Man operation we partner with a number of external couriers, facilitating a comprehensive selection of delivery choices including next day, timed and weekend options. These can be viewed by entering your postcode on the shopping cart page. Surcharges may apply to certain areas, which will be shown during checkout but before payment. We offer free delivery on all accessories, when purchased with a worktop.

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.
