A Guide to Our Tom Howley Kitchen Collections

Over the years, we have fine-tuned our processes, introduced new technologies, materials and paint colours. Still, our Tom Howley kitchen collections remain the same, with symmetry, simplicity and traditional craftsmanship at the heart of each design.

Our Collections

We have six inspiring kitchen collections to choose from, all with a universal appeal, beautifully distinguished by a fine level of design detail. Achieving a classic Shaker silhouette, cabinetry is in-frame rather than a lay-on style. We have a beaded frame for a traditional look or simple square frames for a more contemporary aesthetic. Cornices, skirting boards and pillars are also key elements, helping to define each stunning kitchen collection.


Our most popular style, the Hartford, is an inspired modern update on the classic Shaker style kitchen. Cabinetry is in-frame with ‘cock beading’ around the doors and drawers. The design is then finished off with corner pilasters and traditional cornices. Each kitchen is beautifully proportioned, with an unerring focus on scale, ensuring the final result is flawless.

When browsing our Hartford kitchens, you’ll see complementary details such as open shelving, our classic chimney breast, simplistic butcher’s blocks and traditional pantry designs. With its subtle detailing, this collection is beautiful when combined with soft, muted paint colours from our exclusive palette of timeless neutrals. Its clean lines also look striking when a two-tone aesthetic is applied.

Our Kavanagh design is guaranteed to exceed every kitchen lover’s expectations. Functional, stylish and welcoming; it’s designed to appeal to those who love to cook, entertain and simply showcase their impeccably good taste. It’s a sleek interpretation of a modern shaker style kitchen with square frame doors with deep bevelled panel detailing. Clean lines flow throughout our Kavanagh design, from the tall cornices and the skirting panels to the square-cut island edges and deep shelving.

Distinctive burnished brass wire scroll handles enhance the Kavanagh details and work perfectly to complement dramatic paint colours.

Our most ornate kitchen collection is the Devine, perfect for period homes and those who prefer a more striking look. This collection combines exquisite detailing with modern appliances, creating a breathtaking luxury kitchen that has everything a modern family needs and more.

Raised and fielded doors, grand cornices and elegant corner pillars are the hallmarks of this collection. You’ll also find islands with grand proportions and bespoke breakfast bars perfect for creating an impactful centrepiece. Our luxurious white paint colours or eye-catching brights work wonderfully to highlight the exquisite detailing, adding to the opulent aesthetic.

The simplest of our collections, and as a result perhaps the most contemporary kitchen style, is the Harrington. With its clean lines, flat panel doors, and contemporary cornice, this stylish design is perfect for those who want a more minimalistic look.

The simplicity of the design means you can play with unique island shapes, seating configurations, and striking finishing touches such as our solid bar or Harper handles. Three panel glazed cabinets with integrated LED lighting add an elegant flair to our Harrington design, the ideal place to display sparkling glassware or stylish ceramics.

The Summerville collection is our modern take on the country style kitchen. It combines traditional beauty and functionality on every level. It’s distinguished by the curved edges of the pillars, cornice and worktops providing smooth finesse and flow around the kitchen. Subtle detailing in the woodwork creates extraordinary features like the delicate glazing bars in the upper cabinets – touches of elegance that can transform your kitchen into a beautiful style statement.

Our soft paint colours, Tansy, Sorrel or Orchid, work well with our Summerville collection creating a welcoming space to dine and socialise.

The Butler collection is inspired by the details and features that have proven so successful in our Hartford and Harrington collections. Its strong, clean lines offer a modern update on the classic kitchen style hitting the right balance between traditional and contemporary style. Square framed drawers and doors are accompanied by delicate chamfered square island pilasters and traditional cornice, creating a truly unique collection.

With its unfussy design, you can easily add bright colour and additional detailing such as reeded glass or herringbone flooring for a more tactile, stylish look.
