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!

What our customers say ...

  • 5 star review  Excellent responsive service. Not at all pushy and very happy to re-design until customer is happy. Pride and integrity in their work - regular site visits when installation was taking place to ensure the kitchen was meeting requirements and frequent contact / reassurance over any queries. Would definitely recommend.

  • 5 star review  Appleton Designer Kitchens were absolutely fantastic during our new kitchen design and installation. The attention to detail and communication with our builder was second to none. They were really flexible and were more than understanding when dates were changed and ceiling heights were altered which required cupboard changes. Joanne project managed expertly. I am extremely happy with the service, the high quality of the kitchen and all appliances. I will recommend her and the team without hesitation.

  • 5 star review  Joanne created an amazing bespoke kitchen design that perfectly answered the design brief. Her attention to detail and commitment to delivering the final fitted kitchen was outstanding. When a small part of the design did not "work" quite as expected she found the perfect solution. I have no hesitation in recommending Appleton kitchens.

  • 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 :)
