Marton Lee design, manufacture and install kitchens for a wide range of discerning clients with very different sized spaces, needs and design requirements.
Regardless of size or style, we recognize certain key principles on which every kitchen is built.
All of our Clients expect and get a quality, custom-built kitchen
Marton Lee has worked for many years with leading Kitchen Designers and Architects to turn their concepts and designs into real functioning kitchens.
We are respectful of the particular elements of each design and understand that it is the specific details which, when combined, create the unique vision that your professional has developed for you and which will give you your own special kitchen.
We understand that the essence of 'bespoke' is time - time for your design to be developed / time to translate the design into 'working' or 'shop' drawings / time to measure / time to build / time to install - if short cuts are taken at any point in the process then the result is compromised.
It is important to recognize that an Architect's or Interior Designer's kitchen design will always (to a greater or lesser extent) be representational only. It is not fully resolved, which is to say that it cannot be used to build from. There is still a process to bring the ideas to a buildable reality (see Our Process section).
We have the knowledge, experience and tools (both CAD and CAM) to successfully translate your kitchen design into the kitchen of your dreams.
Alternatively, if you do not already have a fully resolved design, Marton Lee has a talented and experienced in-house design resource available to help you realize your dream kitchen.
(definition) 'Specially made for a particular person'
We make kitchens that will not only fit your space perfectly; but incorporate those special details you want, be it a specific panel detailing, a timber finish, custom made cornice mouldings, solid timber clashings...
A stylish and hardwearing benchtop is an essential part of any successful kitchen.
The overall look of your kitchen is greatly influenced by the appearance of the benchtop and choosing the right material and supplier is very important.
Marton Lee have built kitchens using a wide variety of benchtop materials including solid surface (like Corian), stainless steel, solid wood, concrete and natural stones (granites and marbles) as well as engineered stone.

Each material offers its own unique aesthetic appeal and has its own functional characteristics. We will help you in choosing the right material, colour and finish by providing samples, images and comparative data; and can arrange for you to full view full size slabs where this is appropriate.
We only source from the most reputable suppliers from whom we have a proven record of supply.
The quality and selection of hardware is a key determinant as to how easy and efficient your kitchen is to use and is vital in ensuring a long life. This is an area that should not be compromised and for this reason all the hardware used in your kitchen will be premium European quality.

We believe that the best practice is an ever evolving concept. This means that the way we build our kitchens and the products and materials we use are constantly improving. An excellent example of this is the way in which Marton Lee have approached the issue of potential water damage to the cabinetry.
We were one of the very first to use a plywood substrate for the sink cabinetry (or indeed all the carcass cabinetry where this is preferred) in recognition of its superior water resistant qualities compared to the MDF or particle board used by others.
We understand that a kitchen is more than cabinetry and tops. So we have developed relationships with leading suppliers of appliances, tapware etc. and we are happy provide you with a personal introduction
