The word bespoke essentially means to have something made especially for you.
In other words, it is crafted to suit you and your individual needs.
The difference between a ‘bespoke’ kitchen and a ‘made to measure’ kitchen can be compared to that of a bespoke Savile Row tailor and a tailor in the high street. A tailor from Savile Row may need to see a customer three to four times to produce an perfectly fitting suit.
He would also have served time acquiring traditional time honoured skills and artistry and claim to use the finest materials.
A tailor from the high street would only need to take a standard template and make some minor adjustments and a suit can be ready in a matter of days rather than weeks.
So, with regard to kitchens, ‘bespoke’ kitchens are those where craftsmen are engaged to produce from the original designer’s drawings.
Special sizes aren’t a problem – height, width, depth, curves and angled cabinets are all possible. To produce a truly bespoke kitchen can sometimes take up to 10 weeks or longer to produce. Also, bespoke kitchens are made up of cabinets, whilst ‘made to measure’ kitchens are made up of kitchen ‘units’ rather than kitchen ‘cabinets.’

Do your research first, so you’ll have a better idea of what you want before contacting any kitchen companies.
Look at magazines, kitchen brochures, showrooms and online – Pinterest and Instagram are great sources of inspiration, and you might even want to take snaps of a friend’s kitchen that you love.
Then put together a mood board of styles, colours, finishes and materials you like. Make a wish list of appliances, plus what you want from the layout, this will give you a good starting point for when you meet the kitchen designer.
How Much Does A Bespoke Kitchen Cost
Prices vary considerably. A bespoke kitchen can start at anything from £18,000 to upwards of £50,000. Always have a plan of how much you want to spend at the outset – and be upfront about this – your designer can help you choose what you should invest in and where you may be able to save.
How Long Does It Take To Plan and Fit A Bespoke Kitchen
Allow six months. It is a mistake to rush the planning process, which often takes longer than creating and installing a kitchen. But for a quick result, everyone involved needs to sign up to a fixed timeline.
