A multi-functional family space

Ping wanted a unique kitchen that could become the centrepiece of her home. Her new design had to be bold and reflect her vibrant personality, whilst having plenty of storage and space to whip up meals and spend quality time with her family.

A kitchen for all abilities

As well as being a family hub, Ping’s kitchen needed to work as a professional space where the students at her cookery club could learn how to make delicious Pan-Asian dishes. By choosing Lamona appliances, she could introduce equipment with the latest innovative technologies to produce tasty and consistent results.

Ping's kitchen tour

Working with Howdens

Ping understood that she needed a builder to buy from Howdens and to ensure her kitchen was fitted to the highest possible standard. Rather than seeking a recommendation from friends and family, or approaching her local depot for help finding a builder of her choice, Ping reconnected with a tradesperson she had worked with on previous projects.

“We changed the details of our kitchen close to 10 times and Steve, our designer, was so patient throughout. He told us we could make changes as many times as we needed to get a design we were completely happy with." 

Bringing the design to life

With the design confirmed, Ping’s local Howden depot in Bath began the final stages of her kitchen makeover. From delivery to installation, our experienced depot teams helped to make the renovation stress free for Ping and her family. 

"Our room has low ceilings, so we encountered some challenges when our builder began fitting the tall cabinets. Thanks to some expert advice from Steve, and a bit of determination, our builder was able to achieve a flush fit."
