Your kitchen is often referred to as the heart of the home, and for good reason. It’s where we cook, eat, and spend time with family and friends.  A bespoke kitchen or a kitchen facelift can transform your kitchen into a functional and stylish space that you’ll love spending time in. Below we’ll explore the benefits of these kitchen solutions and what to consider before implementing them in your home.

Bespoke Fitted Kitchens

Bespoke kitchens are custom-made kitchens designed to fit your exact requirements. Your Dream Kitchen will be designed in consultation with you to ensure it meets your exact requirements and personal taste. You have complete control over materials selected and colours chosen. Your designer will assist you in style, layout and colour choice to ensure the finished product is the best fit.

Here are some benefits of bespoke fitted kitchens:

  • Customisation – Bespoke fitted kitchens are designed to fit your exact requirements, ensuring that you get a kitchen that meets your needs and complements your home’s interior style. They are designed to accommodate the list of appliances you require, and ensure you can include all the appliances you require.
  • Functionality – Bespoke fitted kitchens are designed to be functional, with carefully planned layouts and storage solutions that help to maximise your space and make your kitchen more efficient.

Your Kitchen designer will help guide you in locating each appliance based on how it will function in certain locations. For example, ideally you will have enough worktop space available either side of the hob and in near reach when removing items from the oven/microwave.  Also, you may wish to add an island, but it is important to ensure there is adequate space around it so it does not hinder working in the kitchen.

  • Quality materials – Bespoke kitchens use high-quality materials that are built to last, ensuring that your kitchen remains durable and retains its aesthetic appeal for many years.

Kitchen cabinets and cabinet doors are made to a range of standard sizes. This gives you the opportunity in the future to give the kitchen a facelift by fitting new kitchen cabinet doors without removing the cabinets and worktops.

  • Aesthetic appeal – Bespoke kitchens are designed to be visually stunning, with a range of finishes and styles to choose from that can help you create a unique and stylish look in your home. Eye level ovens, integrated appliances and the addition of kitchen islands can improve both the appearance and functionality of your kitchen.

Kitchen Facelifts

If you don’t want to go through the process of a complete kitchen renovation, a kitchen facelift is a great option. This can simply involve fitting new kitchen doors and drawer fronts. You may also decide to update the worktops.

Alternatively, if you have solid timber doors or a painted kitchen you can choose a re-spray to give your kitchen a new look. The kitchen above was moved from one end of the room to the other. The bench seat, island and glass display cabinets where added and the original doors where re-painted to completely refurbish the kitchen.

Here are some benefits of kitchen facelifts:

  • Cost-effective – Kitchen facelifts are often more cost-effective than complete kitchen renovations, making them a great option if you’re on a budget.
  • Quick and easy – Kitchen facelifts are quicker and easier to complete than complete kitchen renovations, with less disruption to your daily life.
  • Improved functionality – Kitchen facelifts can help to improve the functionality of your kitchen, with the addition of new storage solutions and updated appliances.
  • Aesthetic appeal – Kitchen facelifts can give your kitchen a fresh new look, with updated finishes and materials that can help to improve the aesthetic appeal of your space.

Considerations Before Implementing Kitchen Solutions

  • Budget – Bespoke fitted kitchens and kitchen facelifts vary in price depending on the size, style, and materials used. It’s important to establish a budget before you start implementing these solutions.
  • Style – Consider your home’s interior style and choose kitchen solutions that complement your existing decor. This will help create a seamless and coordinated look in your home.
  • Functionality – Consider your cooking and storage needs, and choose kitchen solutions that meet your exact requirements. This will help to ensure that your kitchen is functional and efficient.
