Ash is - quite simply - one of the finest light timbers that we provide here at Worktop Express®. An excellent alternative to oak or maple, our sustainably-sourced European ash looks almost white in parts, with a striking grain that is largely very linear, but features interesting 'curly' formations, too. Unlike standard ash worktops, our full stave ash worktops feature extra-wide staves measuring 90mm in width that run the entire length of the surface; a construction that truly showcases this exceptional timber.
Our popular collection of plank style ash worktops is crafted from only the best raw material, providing the ultimate in strength, resilience and natural beauty. All single stave ash worktops are sanded to a smooth finish (150 grit), but are otherwise unfinished, allowing you to treat on site to your preference. Our affordable full stave wood worktops are available to buy directly from Worktop Express® offering customers a saving of 75% off usual high-street kitchen showroom prices. All kitchen worktops can be delivered via our own UK 2Man delivery service, guaranteeing a high quality, great value product delivered swiftly within many parts of England and Wales.
Durable yet delicate in appearance, a wide stave ash worktop is bright, welcoming and ideal for use in a kitchen - as it is sure to stand the test of time in even the busiest of environments.

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.
