Designing your Bespoke Kitchen. Where do you start?
Designing your ideal kitchen is an exciting time, as it’s an opportunity to create the heart of the home, which works for you and your family.
It’s potentially a big project so where do you start?
You need to start with an idea of what your kitchen means for you and family – is it a place for cooking or for socialising? Is it the heart of the home where all the family congregates for food, advice and a chat?
Answering these questions will allow you to focus on what elements you want in your kitchen. Do you want a central island or a beautiful hand-crafted dining table with benches or traditional dining chairs? Is storage more important that work surfaces?
So, create your ideal kitchen wish-list by thinking about material, shape, style, accessories, and additional features such as soft-close drawers, a central island or breakfast bar
Then you need to measure your kitchen so you can start to plan where the items on your wishlist will fit.
The beauty of a bespoke kitchen is you can choose every element from the number and combinations of cupboards and work units, to the type of handles on the drawers. Additionally, you will be able to dictate the size or shape of the central island or table to coincide with the shape of the kitchen.
Choosing the materials for your ideal kitchen can be a pleasant experience as you peruse the types of wood and finish. Choosing bespoke hand-crafted wooden elements means everything will be co-ordinated with work surfaces matching the wood of the door, skirting boards, dining table and chairs, possibly with contrasting painted units.
The main benefit of designing your own kitchen is that it will be one of a kind, and your beautiful hand-crafted elements will be the talk of the town.
