Your kitchen is often called 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 where you’ll love spending time. 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 created in consultation to meet your needs and personal taste. You have complete control over the materials and colours you choose. Your designer will assist you in style, layout and colour choice to ensure the finished product fits best.

Here are some benefits of bespoke fitted kitchens:

  • Customisation – Bespoke fitted kitchens are designed to meet your requirements, ensuring 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 you locate each appliance based on how it will function in specific locations. For example, ideally, you will have enough worktop space on either side of the hob and within reach when removing items from the oven/microwave.  Also, you may wish to add an island, but it is essential to ensure adequate space around it so it does not hinder working in the kitchen.

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

Kitchen cabinets and cabinet doors are made in a range of standard sizes. This allows you to give the kitchen a facelift by fitting new 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 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 were added, and the original doors were re-painted to refurbish the kitchen completely.

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 faster 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 crucial to establish a budget before you start implementing these solutions.
  • Style – Consider your home’s interior style and choose kitchen solutions that complement your 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 requirements. This will help to ensure that your kitchen is functional and efficient.
  • Professional installation – Bespoke fitted kitchens and kitchen facelifts require professional installation to ensure they are safe and secure. Make sure you choose a reputable installer with experience in fitting kitchens.


Bespoke fitted kitchens and kitchen facelifts are both great options for transforming your kitchen into a functional, stylish space that you’ll love spending time in. With various designs and features, you can create a personalised solution that meets your needs and complements your home’s interior. With careful planning and professional installation, you can create a kitchen that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
