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!

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.

  • 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!
