What makes bespoke kitchens different from off the shelf kitchens?

The term “Bespoke Kitchen” is banded about all too often these days. Every kitchen company in the country apparently offers Bespoke Kitchens, but what exactly does bespoke mean?

Bespoke means a kitchen explicitly tailored to you, the client and your requirements.

Sizing A Bespoke Kitchen

Every kitchen is a different shape and size. Having the capacity to manufacture kitchens means that you can manufacture your kitchen units to the exact size of 568mm wide if this is what the room dictates rather than buy a 600mm wide carcass, which is standard in the industry, and cut this down on-site to fit your kitchen.

The Features

Not every high street can cater to every requirement from clients. This is why a bespoke kitchen maker typically offers a bespoke kitchen design paying close attention to detail.

This takes the form of a design consultation with a senior designer in a showroom where they will listen carefully to your requirements, advise on the kitchen range that would suit you best, tailor specific storage solutions to meet your exact needs and find out how the space needs to work for you.

They will then go away and provide a complete set of 3D visuals and a quotation (this is all part of the design service). You can request a free design consultation by following this link.

A Quality Finish

As bespoke kitchens are made to measure, they are often made to last; however, this is not always the case. A carpenter with a background in joinery could technically measure your space, make a bespoke kitchen and fit it for you.

This will often be done by chopping panels of MDF on-site, screwing things together as they go and generally winging it. A bespoke manufacturer is slightly different. They will combine the latest technological advancements in machinery with decades of craftsmanship experience to produce the highest quality product that stands the test of time.

Bespoke Kitchen Design

A bespoke kitchen design should feel like a luxury kitchen, not necessarily flashy but through quality and attention to detail. It should be beautifully designed by expert designers with decades of experience.

What a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We certainly weren’t the easiest customers , we weren’t sure what we wanted or when ! However Donna, Richard, Rich and their amazing team guided us through the process with utter professionalism as well as warmth and patience. The results exceeded our expectations, particularly the attention to every detail. They wouldn’t rest until they knew we were happy with everything. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them or use them again.

Alan Burton

Woodworks provided us with excellent service, from planning and design to finished kitchen

Build quality is excellent and it really does give the house the WOW factor

Our kitchen was part of a new build process for house we have built from scratch. Deadlines constantly moved, and Woodworks worked around everybody to get the job done on time and in full

After sales is very good, with tweaks to doors and cupboards all part of the service!

It has been an absolute pleasure to deal with The Wood Works. Our existing kitchen was 20 years old, and the layout of the room did not make use of the available space. Josh produced inspired ideas for re-designing the whole area, and really listened to what we wanted to achieve, patiently fine-tuning the plans to our particular requirements. We are now the proud owners of a stunning and practical new kitchen which has completely exceeded our expectations. When my sister visited for the first time, she said "it looks like the kitchen of a celebrity chef!" (which I am not). What a transformation. The Wood Works is a family-run business, and that really shows in terms of their professional service, quality of fittings, attention to detail, reliability and easy communication. Nothing was too much trouble. At the start of the project, Josh promised we would have our kitchen by Christmas. I was sceptical as we were in the midst of the pandemic, but they delivered as promised, with no hitches. Thoroughly recommend.

We are delighted with the kitchen supplied and fitted by The Woodworks. The design, look and quality is brilliant. The designer (Tom Dodd), the project manager (Andy Neville) and the fitters were all brilliant. Always helpful and responsive. A really pleasing experience with Woodworks and a brilliant finished kitchen.

The design collated by Tom was brilliant and tailored brilliantly to our exact requirements.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
