CLL annexe kitchen 11

As we look forward to launching our new CLL Kitchens Direct range next week we take a look back at some of the annexe kitchens we’ve built with our customers tastes and preferences in mind.

If you thought annexe living was all about downsizing and living with a kitchenette it’s time to think again!

Below you will find 7 of our real-life CLL annexe kitchens that have been purpose-built for our customers special needs or own taste preferences.

We understand that kitchens and bathrooms sell homes and they also sell annexes but we also know that thanks to working directly with our new kitchen & bedroom manufacturers that we can also offer a fantastic range of CLL kitchens direct at competitive prices in all your favourite styles.

So whether you are self-building on a small or large-scale or you are looking for the perfect kitchen for your extension, we can help you.

Below are 5 of our real-life annexe kitchens we’ve built for our customers over the last 2 years that showcase the variety and choice we offer to our annexe customers as standard.

Contemporary High Gloss In Ivory

This annexe was designed as a guest lodge in Worcestershire and the specification was very high as the contemporary, well designed annexe came to life.

Working closely with the customer we designed a kitchen that was perfect for the lucky guests who get to spend time in this lovely location.

Galley Kitchens Give You The Best Option For Single Level Living

Some people love the idea of open plan living where the kitchen area is an integral part of the design. However the versatility of a galley style kitchen like this one in Southport made the very best use of space we have ever seen in our custom annexe designs. (If you are looking for what we would call THE perfect annexe for one or two people, it would be this one)

By keeping the kitchen area away from the living area you create a wonderful apartment feel to the annexe and with the customer in mind we kept the look classic but light in colour which looks great with the customer’s lovely blue accessories.

White & Grey Tones Were Perfect For This Annexe

We always offer the choice to upgrade any feature of our annexe kitchens and the customer can simply pay the difference. With this annexe in Somerset the look and style of the annexe inside was very contemporary so we kept the kitchen sleek and used grey tones in the cabinets to add interest.

With upgraded worktops this kitchen demonstrates how custom-built our annexes are to our customers preferences, styles and tastes, it’s like Grand Designs on a smaller scale.

Contemporary With A Feature Wall Of Built-In Appliances

This dark beige glossy look is a very popular choice and it looks stunning with the white worktops and built-in appliances. This annexe is in Cumbria and replaced a traditional (drafty) mobile home with this stunning new home.

With the luxury addition of a built-in coffee machine and a sleek ceramic hob in the work surface (that doubles as a breakfast bar) this annexe kitchen was one of our most contemporary designs (until recently – when we took things to a whole new level. (Pictures to follow on the website shortly)

Just to show that people still love traditional looks as well we worked closely with this customer in Kent to make sure everything was designed to make life easier for someone with failing eyesight.

The choice of handles and controls on the built-in hob were a special consideration and the traditional worktops were chosen so that objects would show up easily for our customer.

Annexes as individual as the wonderful people that live in them. 


  1. We call our annexes “little homes” because that is exactly what we are building for our customers.
  2. Our latest kitchen ranges offer our annexe customers an enviable choice of styles and designs.
  3. Annexe kitchens are just a small part of the overall build but we know how important they are to our customers so we are more than happy to go the extra mile to make sure they get what they wanted.
  4. Our kitchens are available separately if you interested in obtaining a quote, please see our new kitchens direct page on the website, you may find we are the perfect match!
