Howdens Joinery kitchens installation

As Howdens Joinery only sells directly to kitchen installers, it doesn't have an in-house kitchen installation service that we can rate. 

You can see how other kitchen brands, including Homebase and John Lewis, were rated for installation by visiting our kitchen installation page.

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

It has 16 kitchen design ranges (called 'families' by Howdens Joinery) that incorporate a choice of eight door styles. Each has a number of different colour and finish options. The company also 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'll 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.
