We all know the kitchen is the heart of your home, so ensuring that yours reflects your personal needs and tastes is vital. Our designs can be split into three streams: modern, classic and traditional, but with plenty of room to adapt and improvise between, the designing starts now...


Design Streams


If you’re looking for a style from the future, then Contemporary is the way to go. It’s all about clean handle-less work spaces, integrated appliances, Wi-Fi operated gadgets, combined with gloss and matte textures.


A bit more of what you would expect, but with all the mod-cons included. A range of handle choices and door options to give you a truly unique space, with a variety of sink and larder options to suit all your needs.


Take a piece of the countryside with our Traditional styles. With beautifully finished workspaces, pantries that are completely personalised, and a huge variety of Range cookers - it’s a style that stands the test of time.

Feel the Quality

Our kitchen ranges have quality built in. Using only the finest German and English cabinets, we offer unique storage solutions, long lasting hinges and runners, along with robust wooden units, you will certainly feel the quality.



Offering some of the finest appliances available from the Bora induction hob with cooktop extractor to WiFi operated ovens by Siemens, it’s all about making your life that little bit easier.


Working with Blanco, Villeroy and Boch, you can rest assured that we have the perfect range of sinks. We also offer taps including Quooker boiling water taps – so say goodbye to your kettle.


Natural stone is the cornerstone of Lower Barn Farm. Choose from natural granite and marble, solid wood, porcelain tile, and Corian for your worktops. We’ve got hundreds of options to choose from.
