Howdens Joinery kitchens

Click through our gallery to see a range of Howdens Joinery kitchens across different styles, including modern and traditional kitchens.

Howdens Joinery is a trade-only business, so sells kitchens directly to tradespeople. So if you want a Howdens Joinery kitchen, you will need to find an installer yourself.  You can still view the kitchens online or through a brochure, and receive design advice (see details below).

It has more than 45 kitchen designs - seven main ranges with a wide choice of colours and finishes for each - and supplies Lamona kitchen appliances, taps and sinks, which are exclusive to Howdens Joinery. 

But how did Howdens Joinery kitchens do in our survey? Find out by logging in.

Planning/design service: Free design service at home, which you'll need to organise through your chosen installer. Once it's organised, the designer will come to measure up and advise on what will suit your needs. You will then need to visit your local Howdens Joinery depot with your installer to see the plans. There isn't design software available, but you can view images and a video of your kitchen design online.

Installation: As Howdens Joinery is a trade kitchen supplier and doesn't recommend installers, you will need to find one yourself, although Howdens Joinery can guide you through the process. 

Kitchen appliances, flooring and tiles: Large kitchen appliances from Lamona (exclusive to Howdens Joinery). Howdens Joinery doesn't supply wall tiles but does have a flooring range.

As Howdens Joinery sells kitchens to tradespeople, and therefore doesn't install the kitchens, we are unable to rate the installation or give pricing information.
