Do you mean Howdens are cheaper for unit/ appliance costs? Just asking because the Wren site reckons they are cheaper on their comparison scale. I confess that I didn't even look further at Howdens yet - am only just embarking on the investigation process, having not actually moved into the house yet.
A friend of mine wanted a kitchen that was only available from Wren and one other bespoke supplier - obviously quite expensive. He’s in the trade himself so knows the score on prices.
Basically, the guy gave the Wren salesman a figure to beat which he claimed the other supplier had offered, and Wren matched it - the wren salesperson claiming “I wouldn’t even sell it to my mother for that price”
I guess it all comes down to what people want, whether they are confident to push for a deal etc.
Must say, the Wren kitchens I’ve installed have been good, really detailed drawings that are easy to follow. My one gripe is the unitd come fully assembled with the doors on and hardware in, which is fine unless it’s a big unit, then they become pretty heavy.
On the other hand, Howdens are as good as anything quality wise, and their customer service is 100%
My advice is get a price from Wren, then go to Howdens and see how they compare.
