If you’re looking for a new kitchen, you could be in the process of deciding between an off-the-shelf or bespoke kitchen. To help you weigh up your options, kitchen design specialist Harvey Jones talks us through the benefits of bespoke kitchens. Read on to find out more.

They’re unique

If you’ve trailed round the DIY megastores in search of your perfect kitchen to no avail, you may be starting to lose hope. That’s where bespoke kitchens come in.

Rather than choosing something that you’re not 100% in love with, a bespoke kitchen is crafted to match your exact needs. You can choose the features you require, so you only spend on the appliances you’ll use. In addition, you can pinpoint your colour scheme and style to really bring your vision to life.

They help maximise your space

Whether you’re dealing with a ‘dead’ corner or a particularly narrow space, the great thing about a bespoke kitchen is that they are designed to maximise the space you have available. From handy in-built features like wine racks that free up your worktops to pull-out ‘magic corners’ and individually designed storage cupboards, every inch of your kitchen is utilised to provide the most functional and enjoyable space for your family.

They’ll be professionally fitted

When buying your kitchen from a DIY store, you can sometimes have to find your own kitchen fitter to install it. This means you’ll often have the hassle of finding someone to build and install your kitchen or worse still, install it yourself! In the worst case scenario, this can often lead to an inferior finish.

Bespoke kitchens, on the other hand, are usually installed by specially trained fitters to ensure the highest standards are met.

They’re easy to use

You’re probably thinking, how difficult can it be to use a kitchen!? However, a poorly thought out kitchen can lead to many issues. For example, if you install too few cupboards, you could be left with cluttered work surfaces, while failing to consider the overall design could lead to cupboards that are difficult to access. Bespoke kitchens eliminate this problem, as each element is carefully considered by a specialist kitchen designer.
