I was chatting to a previous customer the other day. We were laughing.

We were laughing about how our journey together started.

Or should I say, how much longer the beginning of her journey took, than it really should have.

You see, by the time she finally came to me, she knew exactly what type of kitchen design she was after. One that matched her home. She knew she wanted a sleek, modern style, with a handleless finish. She even had a good idea of the appliances.

I sensed a real impatience about getting started. And when I asked her why, it was because she’d already been to one of the big retail park brands, you know the ones.

She said she wasn’t ashamed to admit she was attracted by the juicy discounts they had on offer (with a fast-approaching deadline of course), and a promise of installing ‘the dream kitchen’ in two weeks’ time (with only a few conditions, they added).


She quickly started to feel like she could never get hold of the right person to ask a specific question, and that they were steering her towards a kitchen she didn’t actually want. It almost felt like they were trying to persuade her to take a kitchen that was in stock, rather than what she really wanted.

Independent Vs National Kitchen Retailer

So, we met at our showroom, and had a coffee. She loved looking at all the different luxury kitchens on display. I took her through the process, how we project manage everything from concept to install.

After a couple more chats, she said to me, “Joanne, I’m so relieved and reassured that you’re creating my kitchen. I thought to start with it would be too expensive. Yes, the two original quotes are different, but your prices are complete, open and transparent. No ‘hidden’ extras…..”

“….more than that” she continued, “the quality of your workmanship, customer service and project management from start to finish has meant I have thoroughly enjoyed this process. I finally have my perfect bespoke kitchen that will last me for years to come.”

As an independent kitchen retailer, It’s a story I hear a lot. And my response is simple:

Price is what you pay, value is what you get.

You’ll always be looked after with Appleton. You’ll get the right unique solution for you, that you had in your head from the beginning.

And if you give us a call first, you might just cut out a lot of stress and wasted time!

  • 5 star review  Joanne and team did an excellent job designing, project managing and installing our new kitchen. We knew we were in safe hands when we first met her at her fabulous show room to discuss ideas and designs. She was approachable and realistic and there was no hard sell. Joanne had put 3D designs together and clearly explained the pros and cons of each proposal. Throughout the entire process, she was dedicated to making everything perfect, making multiple visits and she also answered queries promptly. Joanne's attention to detail is exceptional! The customer service level was top notch, fantastic, we love our new kitchen and highly recommend Joanne and this company to family and friends. The whole experience was easy, and Joanne is a pleasure to deal with! Thanks again :)

  • 5 star review  Joanne from Appleton Kitchens helped us by designing an amazing kitchen with which we are delighted. She was very helpful and has unbelievable attention to detail. She was at hand to help from the moment of design to having the whole kitchen fitted. I have never seen such excellent customer service.

  • 5 star review  I don't usually write reviews however this company is worth a write up. Appleton Kitchens was recommend to me by a friend. However I did go to multiple kitchen companies to make the comparison. With regards to quality and cost there was no where else that compared. You won’t get a pushy sales pitch, any queries were answered promptly. Joanne made multiple visits to my property to ensure the measurements were spot on during the build. Again during the kitchen installation she was on site to make sure everything was there and on track. What was key for me is you get a "Service" which was exactly was I was after. I am so pleased with my kitchen!
