We are delighted to confirm that our nationwide showrooms are fully reopened to the public for visits. Our industry-leading kitchen design experts would be happy to welcome you to experience the quality craftsmanship of a Tom Howley kitchen at one of our showrooms, or can arrange a home visit to discuss your project in more detail.
Our design, installation and manufacturing teams are continuing to work within the government guidelines.
The safety and well-being of our staff and clients has always been our priority, and so we, like everyone have had to adapt in response to coronavirus. We have made changes to the way we work throughout our business and all our staff have embraced new working practices, to keep themselves and others safe.
Staying Covid-19 Secure in 2021
Our Risk Assessments are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure compliance with the latest Government guidelines for ‘Working Safely during Covid-19’.
Our Factories & Offices
Social Distancing and Enhanced Hygiene regimes are now the standard in all our work environments. Our Factories and Offices have designated walkways, and arrivals and departures are staggered to avoid bottlenecks. Desks have been spaced out, with Home Working adopted to reduce the number of people in the building. Hand sanitiser stations are accessible everywhere and all touch points get disinfected regularly.
We are delighted to confirm that our nationwide showrooms are fully reopened to the public for visits. As you would expect from the UK’s leading bespoke kitchen design company, we have stringent safety and hygiene procedures in place, and are managing client visits to ensure you have a great, worry-free experience. We have plenty of space and are doing everything we can to make your visit easy and enjoyable as well as safe.
Surveying & Fitting
Equally, our work methods have been adapted to ensure Social Distancing and Enhanced Hygiene continue when our Surveyors and Fitters are in clients’ homes.
Our Code of Conduct includes a clear instruction to all our staff not to visit clients or attend work if they become ill or have any Coronavirus symptoms. If they or any member of their household have or are suspected of having Covid-19, they are required to stay at home and follow medical and government instructions on self-isolating.
We would obviously ask you to do the same and not to go ahead with a design visit, survey or installation if you or any member of your household has or is suspected of having the virus.
With a little extra time and care we can all stay safe while achieving something truly special in the heart of your home – a living working kitchen for you to enjoy for many years to come.
The journey to your own luxury bespoke kitchen begins with a visit to a Tom Howley showroom. See for yourself the exquisite quality of our kitchens, discover our range of finishing touches and discuss your ideas with one of our experienced designers.
“It quickly became apparent that nobody could match or even come close to what Tom Howley was offering. There is a real solid feel to the way the doors and drawers open and close, the interior finish of the units cannot be matched by anyone the craftsmanship and finish of the kitchen looks and feels luxurious.”
“The whole experience was a pleasure from start to finish, everybody who sees the kitchen admires it. The workmen were the best we’ve ever had in the house, they worked quietly and considerately. Mike created a lovely design, he made the process painless, very willing but no hard pressure sales.”
“Tom Howley stood out as the best all round end to end service and the only company that we didn’t have any issues with. The quality of the design, the installation and the service was excellent. The Installation went without any trouble at all and the team we dealt with were more than helpful.”
“We are just writing to thank you for transforming our kitchen into a classic and functional dream kitchen. Everyone played their part in delivering excellent customer service what a refreshing change. Well done!”
“It’s just so rare these days to find such friendly professional, reliable and skilled craftsmen. The work done was nothing short of outstanding, please convey our appreciation to all involved.”
“Just to say a huge thank you for the fabulous kitchen you designed and brought to life for us. A cliché, but our new room has completely transformed the way we live as a family.”
“Tom Howley’s design stood out because it simply looked the best. The island provides large amounts of storage space and the light oak doors are the perfect match to the floor in the adjacent dining area. The overall feeling is one of symmetry and attention to detail.”
“I have an unusual space and style of room with a pitched roof and I was extremely impressed with the Tom Howley design service. My new kitchen fits the style and space perfectly. The skills of the designer, the bespoke nature of the product and the high quality materials were the key to the final result.”
