What is a bespoke kitchen?

A bespoke kitchen is one that’s 100% custom made. Of course, some cabinets need to be standard sizes to house appliances such as ovens and dishwashers. All of the others are all tailor-made to meet the needs of the client. A bespoke kitchen design considers those needs and accommodates them creatively within any given space.

There are a lot of companies who say they’re purveyors of bespoke kitchens. Instead, they sell ‘made to measure’ kitchens which are a little different. Kitchens ‘made to measure’ use standard carcasses which are usually held in stock and then modified if required. Usually, with this type of kitchen, you’ll able to choose colours, accessories, door styles or handles but you won’t be able to divert away from the standard cabinet sizes. Because of this, ‘Made to measure’ kitchen units are ready to install relatively quickly after ordering as most of the elements are already available.

With a bespoke kitchen, you have the option to be creative, express your personality and really get the most out of your space. Say you want a special place for your Dyson or a built-in kitchen office perhaps. Only with a tailor-made bespoke kitchen do you get this design flexibility.

Bespoke Kitchen Designers

Our bespoke kitchens and furniture always start and end with the client. We make sure to understand what our client considers as the perfect kitchen so we can bring those dreams to life. At each stage of the development process, we work closely to ensure all the details are covered. Our kitchen design team are trained to make sure every aspect of each bespoke kitchen we create is just right. Only then when our client is completely happy to do we commit to manufacturing their bespoke kitchen cabinets to our exacting standards. Want to know more about our process?

As handcrafted kitchen manufacturers, we don’t start producing anything until our client has signed off the final design. We use top quality 18mm birch plywood for our kitchen units and 15mm birch ply for our drawer boxes. We make everything at our workshop in Hebden Bridge, Yorkshire, right around the corner from our showroom. Everything is done in house by our own Wood & Wire trained team and for those aspects that we don’t produce in house i.e. worktops and appliances, we have long-standing relationships with trade partners we trust.

With over 10 years of kitchen manufacturing experience, we’re a bespoke kitchen company with in-depth product knowledge and expertise. And as displaying dealers of Siemens, Quooker, Bora, Corian, Silestone and Dekton, we can help you decide on appliances – sinks – taps and worktops so that you make the best choices for your budget and needs.
