How does the free kitchen design service work?

Planning a new kitchen is an exciting time. Our expert designers can help you and your builder create the best layout for your space, lifestyle and budget using the latest design software. Here is what you can expect when designing a new kitchen with us. 


Talk to our team

Getting an experienced builder on board will ensure your installation meets the highest standards. You can seek recommendations from friends and family. Alternatively, our depot staff can help you find a tradesperson of your choice in your area.


Arrange a home visit

Once you have found a reputable builder, our designers will come to your home to take measurements and assess your space. They will discuss different trends, styles and products, and explain more about our business.

Our designer will use details captured from your home to create a 3D plan and walkthrough video that they will share with you at your local Howdens. Here you can make changes until you are happy with the final design.


Bring the design to life

Once your design is finalised, our depot staff will prepare all the products your builder needs from local stock. These can be collected or delivered when you are ready to get your kitchen installed without waiting for products to arrive.
