In today’s blog post, we’re going to be taking a brief look at some of Howden’s kitchens new releases for 2020. For those of you who don’t know what Howdens is/are, it’s one of the biggest kitchen companies in the UK. Howdens offer kitchen fitters, just like us, a way to provide a simple, swift and cost-effective solution to their local homeowner’s kitchen requirements.

Howden Joinery Group plc is the parent company for the Howdens Joinery business (Howdens), a supplier of kitchens and joinery products to the building trade. It is listed on the London Stock Exchange, and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.


1. Chilcomb Navy

Chilcomb Navy, as it’s called, takes advantage of the increasing interior design trend for dark and bold Colour schemes. Howdens has a number of navy offerings in a variety of shapes and sizes, and we think Chilcomb Navy makes a superb addition.

Above is a picture of this new release, giving you an impression of how this could look in your very own property. Obviously, if you see something that you don’t like, you don’t have to have it like that. For example, let’s say you don’t like glass effect kitchen cabinets, you don’t have to have them as they also sell in the Chilcomb range, just as they do in every kitchen range, the full variation of products, including solid MDF navy kitchen doors.

The Specifications

Here are a few of the important Chilcomb Navy specifications;

  • Door finish: Painted front and back.
  • Door material: Ash framed with veneered MDF centre panel.
  • Door type: Shaker.
  • Colour: Navy.
  • Door thickness: 20mm.
  • Variety: The Chilcomb range is available in Navy + Pebble.

2. Chilcomb Pebble

For those of you who aren’t into your bold Colour schemes, Howdens kitchens have a plethora of options, including Chilcomb pebble, another new addition to Howdens kitchen family. This light, airy neutral tone oozes subtle yet modern sophistication.

Below, another illustration showing how it could look in your property. Glass doors have been a timeless feature in UK kitchen trends and are getting increasingly popular for those who like to make ‘feature’ pieces within their kitchen space.
