The secret to success

Since its founding back in 1995, Howdens Joinery has become a household name.

This superb national brand owes its success to its trade-only model – an ethos that ensures its products are always fitted to the highest possible standard. Forever building trusted partnerships with local trade professionals, the words ‘when our customers succeed, we succeed’, could be considered something of a company mantra!

Fortunately, for anybody upgrading their home on the Lizard, this leading national brand has recently opened a new depot in Helston, again working with local trade professionals to help the end customer ensure that their home improvement vision is brought to life. And with more than 75 kitchen designs to choose from, including shaker, slab, integrated and handle-free designs, plus more than 10,000 products across kitchens, joinery and hardware, it’s easy to see why home improvers insist on Howdens when it comes to renovating the hearts of their homes.

Of course some may well not be updating their own kitchen, but that of their holiday rental – a worthwhile investment considering the growing popularity of the self-catered ‘staycation’ – and when it comes to the modern day holiday guest, many property owners are finding that only the best fixtures and fittings will do – especially when it comes to ensuring repeat bookings. With Howdens, you can rest assured that your new kitchen will tick every box you need it to; in fact, just last year, the company was awarded the Manufacturing Guild Mark by The Furniture Makers’ Company – an accolade only received by brands that demonstrate high standards across design, product development, manufacture, human resources and sustainability, among other key factors. What’s more, the design process itself could not be more enjoyable; simply connect with a designer remotely, who will then visualise your ideas using the details you share, capturing measurements, layout choices and preferences to form a 3D plan, which you can then tinker with and tailor to your precise specification.

Once you’ve settled on your design, fitting is taken care of by your tradesperson, and once it’s in, Howdens offers an extensive aftercare service both in store and online, which includes appliance assistance and registration, as well as repairs to get any equipment up and running again. 

In short, if you live or own a holiday let on the Lizard and are looking for a local service with the range of products and service that only a national brand can offer, why not get in touch with the experienced design team and book your free design survey?
