Frequently asked questions
Kitchens and products
Where are Howdens kitchens manufactured?
As a proud British business, we build all our kitchen cabinets, laminate worktops, breakfast bars, upstands and backboards in the UK. We have two state-of-the-art manufacturing sites – one in Howden, East Yorkshire, and the other in Runcorn, Cheshire. Find out more about our commitment to UK manufacturing on our about us page.
What will my kitchen cost?
All our products require professional installation and that is why we only sell to trade professionals. As such, the final price for the supply and installation of a kitchen is agreed between you and your builder. Read our pricing policy to find more details about our pricing.
Are Howdens kitchens covered by a guarantee?
Yes. You can rest assured that you are purchasing a high-quality kitchen from us, which comes with a 25-year cabinet guarantee. Find out more about our kitchen guarantees and accreditations.
How can I view your kitchen unit sizes?
Do Howdens products come with a guarantee?
Yes. For example our Lamona appliances – exclusive to Howdens – are all covered by a three-year guarantee to provide you with peace of mind. Find out more about our Lamona appliances guarantees on our guarantees and accreditations page. Please refer to specific product pages on our website for other guarantee information, or ask your builder if you can’t find the relevant information.
My product is damaged or missing parts, what should I do?
Let your builder know as soon as possible, so that your local depot can work with our aftersales support team to help them resolve it. Learn more about our aftersales policy and how we can help you.
How do I register my appliance?
We work with the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliances (AMDEA) to ensure you stay informed about warranty information and any safety notices. For our Lamona products, visit our Lamona appliance registration page, and for other brands you can register your product using the link found on the appliance registration page.
I’ve lost my instruction manual. Can I get a replacement?
In the event of you losing your appliance manual, you can simply download it as a PDF using our appliance manual search.
