There is something fabulously satisfying about enjoying a feature that was designed into your bespoke kitchen to address a personal need or pain point.
Honestly, that’s how it should be. For a room that’s the heart of your home, where you spend a lot of your time, your kitchen must reflect your taste and unique personality.
Admittedly, custom kitchens aren’t cheap. But more than seeing your custom kitchen as an expense, see it for the investment that it is. In the next few passages, we will look at why the bill on your new custom kitchen is probably the best money you will spend on your home.
One inescapable feature of stock kitchen cabinetry is the look of sameness. Walking into such a kitchen you cannot shake off the feeling you have been in a similar kitchen before. The truth is you most likely have. Even when new, pre-built kitchens don’t excite. They lack charm and are light on character.
Custom kitchens, on the other hand, are unmistakably unique. There is enough scope to incorporate into the design, features that answer evoke specific memories and suit a certain aesthetic.
We are talking about tiles reclaimed from your late grandmother’s old kitchen repurposed into a one-of-a-kind backsplash for your kitchen. We mean antique light fixtures that would look terribly out of place in a stock cabinet.
Combine all the quirky, off-beat design touches inspired by your lived experiences and features designed around your garage finds and you have a kitchen that looks and feels like nothing you will see around.
Handcrafted to meet specific needs, custom kitchens are purposefully functional. Every feature is carefully designed to fit your cooking and entertaining needs. And that’s not just on a superficial level:
Because the kitchen is bespoke, the cabinet and worktop heights are as high as you would like them to be. You don’t have to strain to reach utensils and clean up. Kitchen chores are a breeze to do because the layout is designed for you.
If you’re left-handed, you can have your left hinge fridge, for example, open away from you so you don’t have to move round to grab stuff from the fridge. It’s not like stock cabinetry is designed with handedness in mind.
With custom-designed kitchens, storage, layout, and plumbing can be as functional as you need them to be.
Storage is a big concern in kitchen design. And no matter how well you shop around, you can never find cabinets that perfectly fit your space. But because your cabinets are designed to fit available space, they can be as high, deep, and wide as they need to be to fully maximize the available space.
It is a fulfilling feeling knowing that all the space there is has been fully utilized. Ready-made kitchens are just not customizable enough to exploit any dead space there may be. Only a bespoke kitchen and can guarantee this.
Unfortunately, there is little you can do with stock cabinets that have shoddy build quality or which use poor quality materials. You essentially get what you pay for. On the contrary, choosing to go the bespoke route makes little sense if you’re going to settle for cabinets that will break down after a few months.
In fact, it makes perfect sense to go all out and pick the best quality hardware, worktops, light fixtures, and tapware to make sure your custom kitchen is the most functional and practical it can be.
All the high-end materials and craftsmanship will pay off in a hard-wearing kitchen that will be an absolute joy to cook in and which will serve your family for many years to come.
