What’s Included In Our Annexe Kitchens?

"CLL Kitchens"

We sometimes think we have the best jobs in the world, helping people enjoy making self-building as easy and enjoyable as possible.

One of the reasons people choose Contemporary Log Living for their annexes is that we offer one the best and widest choices of kitchens and bathrooms.

We simply don’t believe in calling 2 wall units and 3 base units “a kitchen” and our customers benefit greatly from our trade kitchens when it comes to upgrading to modern glossy contemporary style cabinets at very little extra cost.

Just as kitchens and bathrooms “sell houses” they are also the two most important internal features for our annexe customers too.

With our choice of kitchens to choose from and our high standard specification, we offer a combination that is hard to resist (or beat on price if bought separately)

Contemporary or Traditional Styles

We build annexes that are similar in finish and style to a new home, complete with modern or traditional style kitchens (depending on the customer’s preference at our initial visit and consultation).

We usually find it about a 50/50 split between traditional and contemporary styles and creams and oaks are still the favourites.

With our bespoke annexes we can also plan the floor plan to accommodate a separate kitchen if desired or you can opt for the popular open plan living styles that we have come to expect in new home design right now.

Self-building even at this level allows you to start with a floor plan and work from there, incorporating elements that suit you or the family members that will be living in the new annexe.

What Appliances Do We Supply?

Our standard appliances include:-

An integrated fridge/freezer or equivalent under counter ones

A ceramic hob & extractor fan

A built-in single oven 

A built-in dishwasher or microwave

We use named appliances available via our trade suppliers and you can of course choose an upgrade of your choice and simply pay the difference if you want to.

Laminate Worktops In A Variety Of Finishes & Colours

One of the most popular finishes is the glossy square edge laminate with that lovely little bit of sparkle in like the one on the superb CLL Mini Cedar Lodge pictured above.

As with appliances, we will work with you if you wish to upgrade the worktop and simply pay the difference.

Sinks & Taps

Most of our annexes are purpose-built for elderly relatives and therefore taps need to be practical as well as functional but you can choose the style you like from our range just as with the kitchen cabinets.

Coloured sinks are also available and in some cases there would be no extra charge depending on the style and finish you choose.

Upgrades You May Want To Consider

The most popular appliance upgrade in the last few years has been a built-in wine cooler. You can also request a double oven or even a pop up extractor fan (that comes out of the worktop behind your hob).

We can also accommodate existing appliances in the design (although most people go all new) and if you have a favourite brand in mind, we can supply & fit it for minimal extra cost.

All in all we know from what our customers tell us that we offer one of the best and widest choices available for kitchens in our annexes as standard.


  1. Your Contemporary Log Living annexe includes a wide choice of contemporary or traditional style kitchens.
  2. We also supply & fit appliances from our ranges so that you can literally move in and start cooking your first meals.
  3. You can choose to upgrade your appliances and simply pay the difference.
  4. If space and design allows, you can choose to add in the latest technology gadgets and gizmos to make your kitchen the perfect place for you to enjoy.
