Our products

Product innovation is one of our strategic objectives. Our builder customers demand the right amount of the best product, at the best price and therefore constant investment in new product is critical to our offer. Our disciplined range management balances the benefits of having new product with the costs of managing it through its lifecycle.

Kitchens

 

As the UK’s number 1 trade kitchen supplier* we provide everything our customers need to complete their kitchen jobs, including worktops, sinks and taps, flooring, appliances, and handles. All our cabinets are manufactured in the UK from sustainable FSC® and PEFC™ certified materials and carry a 25-year guarantee.

In 2020 we introduced 18 new kitchen ranges, including two new styles, additional colour options for existing ranges, and a new handleless cabinet platform to offer a stylish Linear look at affordable prices.

We were granted a Royal Warrant by Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen as a supplier of fitted kitchens in 2015.

We sell over 2.7 million joinery doors each year, which means that 1 in 4 doors sold in the UK is from Howdens.

Alongside our doors, we sell 8.1 million metres of skirting and 7.1 million metres of architrave each year.
