Howdens Tewkesbury in Skye colour

Am looking at kitchens and am considering this one as wanted an alternative to white or cream and this looks quite subtle. Does anyone have this and if so how much did it cost you (I know Howdens prices can range a lot, but just a rough idea would be great). I have a small u shaped kitchen.

Haven't seen it in that colour, but I was dithering between Tewkesbury, Burford and Burford Tongue & Groove when I was buying my last kitchen. Burford and Burford T&G both came in at £3,414 including VAT, Tewkesbury was £4,417 for the same thing. I decided Burford Tongue & Groove would do! Those prices are the actual quotes from Howden to my joiner, so no mark-up on them.

Thanks, that's really useful as the pricing is so hard to guess at! Can I ask what size kitchen do you have and was that including appliances or anything fancy??

Diseno Sun 18-Mar-18 15:34:24

the price difference for the two kitchens above is that the Burford is a vinyl wrap door where the Tewkesbury is timber or a painted timber with veneered accessories

It's about 3.5m x 3.5m. This was the original quote, I took the appliances/extractor fan off it and bought them separately. (Sorry, the formatting will probably go horribly wrong on this!)

Kevin thank you so much; that is really helpful. I am going to go look at the doors at the depot tomorrow and when I get the quote it will be really helpful to compare as my kitchen is a similar size. Are you happy with your Burford?

hiddenmnetter Sun 18-Mar-18 23:34:25

Have a look at DIY kitchens. Our builder got us a quote from howdens with his "75% discount".

The same identical kitchen but with solid wood doors rather than veneered mdf from howdens came in nearly £1,500 cheaper.

Howdens can't match DIY pricing no matter what "discount" your tradesman gets.

KevinTheYuccaPlant Thu 22-Mar-18 20:36:23

I'm very happy with it, albeit I don't live with it, it's in a holiday let. Guests are happy so far though, and it's easy to wipe down (popped in today to see what needed doing before the next lot arrive on Saturday and saw that the last ones had spilled coffee all down the front of the cabinet under the sink!).

KevinTheYuccaPlant Thu 22-Mar-18 20:42:27

All design faults mine rather than Howdens, by the way grin I'll let their designer loose on the next one though, which is going to be a much bigger room (and has a utility, so no appliances spoiling the run - built in ones are just a pain, but they do look a lot better).

cansu Thu 22-Mar-18 22:00:45

It looks lovely; especially like the plate rack unit! Thank you. I have a builder coming round next week to discuss. Am v excited as I currently have a very ramshackle mismatched old kitchen.

I have Tewksbury in Antique white in frame, and love it!
My only advice is to avoid the 300cm cupboards if you can. They don’t hold much and you can’t put a pull out Interior in the framed ones.

We’re currently having the Tewkesbury Skye fitted and the colour is great. Definitely haggle with Howdens as our quote started at £14k and we ended up at £9k with them matching a B&Q quote.

JoF1975 and cansu

How did your kitchens go? What did it cost you In the end? We have just been to howdens today and I am set on this colour!

cansu Thu 28-Jun-18 18:56:45

I didn't go for it in the end mainly down to cost as the Howdens quote was too much. I went for a Benchmarx kitchen called Somerset in pale green which has just been fitted and looks lovely. I would say it is the equivalent of Tewkesbury as it is a timber framed door. I ended up paying 4k for units, worktop, microwave and inserts plus one carousel. Fitting and other appliances were on top of this. I am very happy with it. I think the cost with Howdens depends very much on how much discount is passed on. I also think buying kitchens towards the end of the month is a good idea as they often have sales targets to meet so are more amenable to negotiate. If you really like the Howdens one, go somewhere else first and then ask them if they can beat the quote.

Thanks for replying cansu that’s very helpful

I am in the process of ordering my Tewkesbury Antique White from Howdens at the moment and their pricing has been all over the place. My dad is the account holder and with his full discount passed down to me the kitchen was coming out at £12k! Nearly spat my tea out as its not a large kitchen at all. The sales person told me he could discount better than what my dad could get and offered £8,500. They charged us silly money for the little things - taps, belfast sink etc so took all this out to source ourselves and its now down to £6,500. Pretty sure they pluck prices out the bloody sky to be honest!!!
