Creating a Nature-Inspired Kitchen

One silver lining of the pandemic has been that many of us are more in touch with the outdoors than we ever were before.

When we think back to April, we can almost feel the silence radiating from the empty roads and hear the birds chirping in the trees.

In many ways, it was something of a perfect storm – not only were there fewer manmade noises but because we were stuck spending lots of time indoors, it made us appreciate the time we got to spend out even more.

That daily walk was the highlight of many people’s days – an opportunity to breathe fresh air and take in the sights, sounds and smells that nature has to offer.

And, based on the last few months, it seems that this experience has had a life-changing impact on many of us, with lots of people keen to bring more of the outdoors into their home.

Pay Attention To Textures And Materials

‘Natural’ kitchen designs, like the one pictured here, are becoming hugely popular – with lots of natural light fused together with natural textures, like wood and stone.

It’s earthier, it’s more real, and it puts us in touch with the great outdoors, even when it’s bucketing down outside!

Works With Other Kitchen Trends

The natural kitchen works beautifully with some of the other popular trends right now, including urban and concrete, meaning you can incorporate multiple key themes for a fresh and modern kitchen design.

Going Green

You can’t go natural without it. The nature-inspired kitchen gives you the perfect platform to introduce plants and greenery into your space, making it the ultimate inside/outside kitchen.

It’s also a really easy way to change up your kitchen design, depending on your mood, or the season. A windowsill full of fragrant summer herbs always puts a smile on our faces!

What our customers say ...

  • 5 star review  Joanne was fantastic from start to finish. She spent the time listening to what we wanted from the kitchen and went away to design a kitchen that not only looks beautiful but is functional & copes with busy family life. She was extremely patient with us when we started to make “ tweaks “ and was on hand to give her honest opinion. During installation Joanne was on hand to ensure all went smoothly and was quick to rectify anything she wasn’t 100% happy with. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Joanne to anyone - you will not be disappointed and you can trust her to hold your hand through the whole process.

    thumb Paul Stewart
  • 5 star review  The service and product from Joanne and the team at Appleton Kitchens is simply fantastic. From the initial consultation through to installation the whole process was easy, professional and enjoyable. If there was an issue this was addressed quickly and without fuss. Joanne's attention to detail is phenomenal, measurements were taken and checked at several stages of our build so that by the time the kitchen was installed everything slotted in perfectly. The installation itself was done over a couple of days by professional, thorough trades. The kitchen looks and feels wonderful and we are delighted with it.

  • 5 star review  We cannot recommend Joanne and Appleton Kitchens more highly. Joanne is one of the most passionate, dedicated and conscientious contractors we work with. She tailors her approach to suit our business needs and consistently delivers high quality, thoughtfully designed kitchens which always have a wow factor. Whilst pricing is competitive to cater to our entry, mid and high-level new build homes, design and quality are never compromised. We always look forward to getting Joanne's perspective in the early build stages as she has a pragmatic and customer focused approach. Nothing is too much trouble and she is 100% involved from start to finish on all our new build schemes. We have complete trust in Joanne and thoroughly enjoy working with her. We look forward to collaborating with her on our future schemes. Branley Homes Limited

  • 5 star review  On behalf of Step-places, Manchester. We have used Joanne and her team for a number of years on various high specification projects, most recently our development in the heart of Ancoats, Manchester. Her attention to detail, quality of service and high quality products are second to none. We cannot recommend Appleton Kitchens highly enough, we will continue to use them for many years to come.
