In your initial consultation we will discuss the scope of the interior design work you require and what you want to achieve. From here, we’ll create a custom design proposal, including all of your needs, from specifications to design and supply. Our highly experienced team will guide you through the process, to ensure that you are delighted with the final result. 

We provide a unique design service, covering everything from colour consultation, layout of artwork on the walls, custom furniture design and curtain making, through to full interior renovation specification. Being developers ourselves, we understand the building industry and bring a depth of knowledge and experience to every project. 

Watch your ideas come to life. At Appletree Designs, we partner with you to build bespoke timber shaker kitchens that are designed perfectly for your space. Every kitchen we design incorporates the finest materials and signature elegant shaker style. Our in-house team of installers make the process stress free, and ensure a professional finish.
