When the time comes to make that lifelong investment in your home with a new kitchen, bathroom or bedroom, you are in safe hands with Ashley Ann.
Established over 30 years ago in Thurso, this unique family-run retail and manufacturing business puts exceptional quality, value for money and dedicated personal service at its heart ‒ from beautifully bespoke designs to meet your unique lifestyle needs, to manufacture and deliverance direct from its own factory in Wick.
Promises made are promises kept and you can be sure that an Ashley Ann-designed room is the perfect fit for your unique family lifestyle.
“We really do have core family-led values and that echoes throughout the organisation ‒ from our factory in Wick to all of our showrooms. The customer can feel that when they speak to us,” explained joint managing director Scott Bremner who runs the business with brother Gavin.
A lifetime guarantee
“We’ve got a lifetime guarantee on our kitchens so when people come to us, it really is choosing a kitchen for life. We’ve had people who have had an Ashley Ann kitchen for 25 years and they’re only now coming back to get another one! Quality is of paramount importance because price is not the number one objective for our customers. Out with buying a house, this is probably the second biggest decision you’ll make.”
Rare for many manufacturers, Ashley Ann uses the highest quality MFC (melamine faced chipboard) at 18mm thick ensuring both exceptional durability and a beautifully finished product. In addition, there are over 40 colour options and a huge range of finishes and accessories to choose from. Customers can also upgrade to solid oak or walnut products.
“The flexibility in having a highly bespoke product differentiates us,” added Scott. “We can provide special functions and features, whether that’s a particular colour or a completely bespoke unit.”
Wraparound customer care from design to deliverance
From the moment you walk into an Ashley Ann showroom, you will receive not only first-class customer service but be looked after by your own personal sales designer who will work on your project from start to finish.
“Not only do they design and sell the project, they then project manage it to ensure everything goes into place in a timely manner, and provide after sales care. It’s a complete loop service.”
There is no hard sell here and the design service, including measuring up, is free of charge.
“We look after our customers from day one and guide them through the process. We cater for everyone wherever they are in the design process and ultimately put together a design package for their project.”
Ahead of the curve
Whatever your aesthetic and lifestyle needs, Ashley Ann will always keep you ahead of the curve ‒ both in terms of fashion and functionality. Ashley Ann works closely with two European specialists, Blum and Egger, which allows the business to offer customers a first look at the latest designs and innovations for contemporary living. Discover new styles before they become trends together with state-of-the-art room design that maximises practicality and performance.
“On the Continent, you tend to get trends a little earlier than when they arrive in the UK so it gives us some foresight.
“Our designers will show customers what’s in vogue, whether that be a particular door style, kitchen system or colour. Giving the customer these insights helps them in their decision-making process when putting their overall design together.”
