To bespoke or not to bespoke? We answer the questions surrounding bespoke kitchens Vs off the shelf

A truly bespoke design is one-of-a-kind, made to order and perfectly suited to you and your space

To go bespoke or not to go bespoke, that is the question…

With more ‘off the shelf’ kitchens cleverly masquerading as custom-made designs, is it worth spending more on a project that is truly one-of-a-kind? Absolutely!

A new kitchen is a major investment, so it is important the design you choose appeals to your personality and your space both practically and visually and that it increases the value of your home.

Going bespoke will ensure your kitchen has a flawless fit. Irregularly sized rooms, problematic structural supports or unusually placed doors or windows will often limit your options. A one-off commission will mould into your room, making the most of all available space.

A truly bespoke design will also be personalised to your needs. If you like to entertain, you may prefer a design that can function as a family kitchen in the day, yet transform into the perfect venue for hosting in the evenings. If you are always misplacing a particular pan or dish, customised storage that dictates where each item lives will revolutionise the way you cook.

A custom-made kitchen will give you the chance to create a distinctive and exclusive look. Cabinetry can be finished in any tone or hue, and you can choose from a world of materials and finishes; some that you may never of seen or even thought available.
