Does Wren Kitchens have a kitchen planner/design service?

Wren usually has a free design service at home where the designer will come to measure up and give advice on what will suit your needs. You'll then need to go in store to see the final plans drawn up. You can also book an appointment to go in store for advice. Wren Kitchens offers kitchen planning software, which can be accessed online at home.

At the moment, you can choose whether you would prefer an appointment in-store or online. 

In-store appointments are conducted at design desks which allow enough room so you can maintain a social distance from your designer. You are separated by a glass screen and have a second screen so you can see what your designer is creating. The number of customers in the showroom is also limited. 

Online appointments are conducted using an online meeting programme (which doesn't need any software or downloads). Your designer will create a 3D plan and view of your kitchen.

Does Wren Kitchens install kitchens?

There is an optional fitting service at extra cost. It's not carried out by Wren Kitchens installers, but is organised by the company. All Wren Kitchens units come pre-assembled. 

Does Wren Kitchens sell kitchen appliances, flooring and tiles?

Yes, it sells large kitchen appliances from a range of brands, kitchen flooring and wall tiles, all fitted at extra cost - visit our home appliances page to find the best appliances for you.
