The Challenge: Affording a Quality Kitchen

We all know that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It’s where meals are prepared, families gather, and memories are made. But let’s face it, a quality kitchen comes with a hefty price tag. For many, the cost can be a significant hurdle, making it difficult to upgrade or renovate this essential space.

That’s where we come in. Steen Building Services is committed to making your dream kitchen a reality, without breaking the bank. Our new finance options for kitchens make it easier than ever to invest in a kitchen that you’ll love for years to come. While we won’t dive into the nitty-gritty of the finance details here, rest assured that our options are designed to be as flexible and accommodating as possible.

So, why wait? Your perfect kitchen is just a phone call away. Stay tuned to learn more about why a kitchen is the right choice for you and how Steen Building Services can make it happen.

Why Choose a Kitchen from Our Trusted Suppliers?

Selecting a kitchen can be a daunting task given the multitude of options available. However, kitchens from our range of trusted suppliers offer several compelling reasons to make them your top choice. Let’s explore why a kitchen from our esteemed partners should be on your radar.

Quality and Longevity

Firstly, our suppliers are committed to quality. Their kitchens are built to stand the test of time, crafted from premium materials that can handle daily wear and tear. Whether it’s the sturdy cabinets or the resilient worktops, every component is designed for durability. This means you can cook, dine, and host gatherings with the confidence that your kitchen will maintain its appearance for years to come.

Versatile Designs

Kitchens are not one-size-fits-all, and our suppliers get that. They offer an extensive variety of designs to match any aesthetic, from sleek modern styles to cosy rustic themes. Moreover, their collections are regularly updated to incorporate the latest design trends, ensuring your kitchen will be both functional and stylish.

Tailored to You

A kitchen should reflect your unique tastes and needs, and our suppliers make that a reality. They provide a wealth of customisation options, allowing you to adapt your kitchen to your specific requirements. From a range of cabinet finishes and worktop materials to various handle types, the choices are limitless. This enables you to craft a kitchen that truly embodies your individuality.

The Importance of a Good Kitchen in a Home

While we’ve touched on the benefits of choosing a kitchen, let’s zoom out a bit and consider why having a good kitchen is crucial in the first place. A well-designed kitchen isn’t just a luxury; it’s an investment in your home and your quality of life.

Increases Home Value

Firstly, a top-quality kitchen can significantly boost the value of your home. According to property experts, a new kitchen can add up to 6% to your home’s value. So, investing in a kitchen isn’t just about enjoying it now; it’s also about future-proofing your property. When the time comes to sell, you’ll reap the benefits of this wise investment.

Enhances Lifestyle

A well-designed kitchen isn’t just about cooking; it’s about living. With the right layout and features, your kitchen becomes more than just a functional space—it becomes a place where you want to spend time. Whether you’re an avid cook or someone who loves to entertain, a Howdens kitchen enhances your lifestyle by providing a comfortable and efficient environment for all your culinary adventures.

Central Hub for Family

Last but not least, the kitchen often serves as the central hub for family activities. From morning breakfasts to late-night snacks, it’s the room where everyone tends to gather. A good kitchen fosters this sense of togetherness, offering a welcoming space for family meals, homework sessions, and heart-to-heart talks.

Why Finance Your Kitchen?

So, you’re convinced that a kitchen is the way to go, but what about the cost? That’s where our new finance options come into play. Financing your kitchen offers several advantages that make it an attractive choice for many homeowners.

Immediate Enjoyment

Why wait to save up for your dream kitchen when you can enjoy it now? Financing allows you immediate access to the kitchen you’ve always wanted, without the long wait. No more making do with outdated cabinets or inefficient layouts. With our finance options, your dream kitchen becomes a reality, right here, right now.


Financing is a great way to spread the cost of your new kitchen over a period of time, making it more manageable for your budget. Instead of a large upfront payment, you can make smaller, regular payments that fit comfortably within your financial plan. This way, you can invest in a high-quality Howdens kitchen without straining your finances.

Flexibility and Convenience

One of the underrated benefits of financing is the flexibility it offers. Life is unpredictable, and your financial situation can change. Financing gives you the leeway to adjust your payment plans according to your needs, offering a level of convenience that paying upfront just can’t match.
