Tom Howley Showroom Spotlight – Bristol

Bristol’s architecture is breathtaking, and on every street, the old sits comfortably with the new. It’s a place that’s positively fizzing with 21st-century innovation and a sense of exploration, so it is no surprise that we chose this location for a Tom Howley showroom.

Kitchen Collections on Display

Within the walls of our showroom, you’ll discover a trio of expertly designed and crafted kitchens, as well as a breathtaking bootility room tucked away towards the rear. Each display exudes its own distinct allure, boasting a myriad of design inspirations to spark your creativity.

The Hartford display, painted in our vibrant blue, Inky Sky, is a true style statement that wows all who enter and pass by our Bristol Tom Howley showroom. This eye-catching display showcases many of our bespoke storage options, including a bi-fold breakfast pantry, a unique island design with a baker’s table, classic niche chimney storage and a statement glazed dresser.

Our Hartford design flows beautifully into our classic Summerville kitchen, with its soft colourway and elegant curved cabinetry. Subtle touches, such as reeded back panels, delicate glazing bars in the upper cabinets and a classic chimney design are flourishes bound to inspire those looking for a traditional yet contemporary kitchen aesthetic.

Towards the rear of our showroom, you’ll find our Devine design – a remarkable space that allows you to experience the full functionality of our features and appliances, just as you would in your own home. Painted in our ever-popular sage green, Moonstone, it is further enhanced by the bold Caesarstone Emperadoro black surfaces. Subtle lighting has been thoughtfully incorporated to heighten the drama of the dark surfaces, creating a moody ambience. This display is a testament to the transformative power of colour, texture, and lighting, showcasing how even a long, narrow space can be converted into a functional and stylish culinary haven.

Meet the Team

A visit to the Tom Howley showroom in Bristol is enhanced by the friendly and knowledgeable team that greets you. We recently asked our showroom manager, Rosie, and the design team to shine a light on this exceptional space.

How would you describe the Tom Howley Bristol showroom?

The Bristol Showroom is conveniently located on Bristol’s Whiteladies Road. It is a warm and welcoming environment with five outstanding displays to inspire you. Every team member here in Bristol brings something different to the table. We bounce off each other creatively and focus on having an open and relaxed environment in the showroom. It’s my favourite thing about this job. We’re more like family than colleagues, and our clients benefit from this great atmosphere when they visit our showroom.

What are some of the standout design features within the showroom?

One of my favourite features in the Hartford display is the bi-fold breakfast pantry, which is elegant and practical. It allows you to store and display your entire morning with ease! Our double, full-height pantry is another highlight in this space, providing ample storage for all your kitchen essentials. We can customise these solutions to fit your specific needs, ensuring that you have everything in your kitchen within easy reach.

In our Summerville kitchen, the chimney surrounded with dedicated drawers keeps your oils and spices organised and within arm’s reach while cooking. The oak table is also beautiful, creating a warm and inviting look. Lastly, our boot room features seating with integrated drawers and a panelled coat rack with shelf – a practical storage solution that looks great!
