As the old saying goes ‘if you’ve got it, flaunt it’.

And there’s no better way to show off a space that is naturally light and airy, than by going dark and bold.

As soon as we started designing the kitchen for this 400-year stone-built cottage, we knew it had to have the wow-factor.  So, in stark contrast to its old exterior, we created a modern kitchen design that was, sleek, stylish and futuristic.

As the ultimate statement kitchen, Pronorm’s Y-Line handless range was the obvious choice for this theme.

A handleless kitchen with a difference, the Y-Line incorporates sculpted aluminium handles to open and close, giving additional detail and ease of use that sets it apart from other handleless kitchens on the market.

The central island in light grey is a focal point for the room; however, by attaching it to the wall, we formed an extension of the kitchen area which flows beautifully. The floor to ceiling cabinets in Matt Lacquer Stratus contrast the cabinets and the white Quartz worktop perfectly to give a contemporary, monochrome finish.

Take a look at this quick tour video to appreciate the real impact of this modern kitchen. See for yourself the innovative gadgets the client invested in, such as Pronorm’s utility caddy and the Servo drive automatic door opening with pull-out shelf.


This project was finished with the latest kitchen appliances from Bosch as well as a hot water tap by Quooker, giving it ultimate functionality.

The results were a space that is inviting and easy to spend time in, making it perfect for entertaining.

The icing on the cake? One very happy customer!

The quality of our new kitchen is outstanding and surpasses anything we had seen by other German suppliers when we started out. If you are looking for a new kitchen then I wouldn't go past Appleton Designer Kitchens. Great value for money!

Joanne was ace, providing different designs, suggesting colour schemes, working with the other trades that we had on site and being there almost every day to check that the installation and any snagging was completed to a high standard. Happy to recommend
