“Upon doing a massive search and interviewing a countless number of contractors we determined Appleton Renovations was the right company for our Custom Built-Ins, we set up a design consultation with Ken Appleton and were amazed with his insight and vision to transform our home, the detail in there proposal was also amazing.  We were not sure at first if we really wanted to take up the entire wall… Ken Appleton assured us that he hears this all the time and when it’s all finished every single person is pleased with the entire wall being utilized, it actually made the room feel bigger!  If you’re looking for a top notch designer… Ken is the answer to all your architecture design needs.  He even had many other tradesman to refer us for several other projects & repairs.â€

Custom Woodwork – October 30, 2015


“After months of research and interviewing finish carpenters I was beginning to lose hope in finding a company that could handle the entire scope of our project.  Then I noticed that many of the pictures I found on line were all from Appleton Renovations and they are in Southern California which is where our new home is.   I contacted Appleton Renovations and boy was I ever so pleased… without any hesitation Ken Appleton ran with my vision.. expanded it and explained what architecturally worked and what wouldn’t, it was very clear I found the right designer.  Upon signing contracts (which were very detailed and clear) Ken sent us a very detailed schedule… this project was massive and finished exactly as promised.  If you’re looking for the best look no further Appleton Renovations is defiantly a one stop shop with true Vision and Professionalism.  We now have a coffered ceiling, wainscot walls and a 90†HDTV Entertainment center and couldn’t be happier!†Carr – Oceanside, CA Hand Crafted Built-Ins & Entertainment Centers by: www.AppletonRenovations.com (949) 887-6764 Sales@AppletonRenovations.com Custom Cabinets Orange County CA Custom Cabinets Orange county CA, built-ins, Home Theater, Entertainment Centers

Custom Built-Ins October 9th, 2015


“We interviewed several Custom Cabinet companies and frankly were not impressed with their vision or ability to present a clear and concise direction.  We found AppletonRenovation.com  on line and set up a design consultation, Ken Appleton arrived and after asking me about what I would like incorporated he put together a complete conceptual drawing of a Self standing desk, Coffered ceiling, Book shelf built-ins, lighting & Shutters.  It was quickly clear to me I found someone that had a great deal of experience and would have no issue in executing our project.

The project went exactly as promised..  We absolutely love our new office, in fact we have already contracted Appleton Renovations to do another Built-in in our formal and two more coffered ceilings.

The Appleton Team is very polite & clean, pleasure to have around.â€
