05 Aug Bespoke Cabinetry Designed for Life
Kitchens come in all shapes and sizes, but not all of them are designed properly. Bespoke cabinetry can really make all the difference. Only a truly bespoke kitchen design will perfectly meet the needs of a homeowner. However, it’s not always easy to decide where to start when creating something bespoke, there’s a lot to think about and many things you might not even consider.
#1 Your Ideas and Aspirations
Building a bespoke kitchen is about creating something that reflects your requirements, down to the tiniest detail. When creating your dream kitchen, you need to start with ideas. Whether you want something more traditional looking or completely unique and bespoke, build a picture in your mind of your ideal kitchen. What will it look like? Will it have a feature island, a walk in pantry or bespoke cabinets? What about colours, sizes and textures of the cabinets? Even if you don’t know exactly what sort of kitchen you would like, it’s a great starting point for your designer to work with.
#2 Use Samples
Work with your designer and obtain samples of worktops and doors so you can try them out in your home. A colour you might like in the showroom might look very different in your own home with the different lighting and colour schemes. Work with your designer from the outset because they will be able to help and provide their professional expertise.
#3 3D Plan
When it comes to designing a bespoke kitchen, you want to be sure that it will look right once it’s been created. That’s where 3D kitchen renders can be so useful. Your designer will be able to take the ideas that you have and create a 3D plan of your kitchen so you can see exactly how it will look before committing to the final design.
In any kitchen the layout is vital. In larger kitchens you will find that there are specific zoned areas including any pantries or utility areas. Again, a professional designer will be able to offer guidance on the best way to set out your kitchen.
Bespoke Cabinetry and Unique Design
It’s not always a bespoke kitchen that Amy, our kitchen coach goes to see. Roundhouse designs and builds beautiful bespoke furniture for other spaces too, including bedrooms, living rooms, and as can be seen here, dining rooms.
These lovely clients already had a Roundhouse bespoke kitchen and wanted to link the space to the dining area. They came back to Roundhouse to have more bespoke furniture made that fits exactly into the space they have. The beauty of bespoke is that we can make furniture to virtually any size and so we designed these sliding door Urbo cabinets in Driftwood veneer with Decoluxe Cirrus glass on the doors and a box shelf in solid Walnut.
At the other side of the space is an Urbo sliding door matt lacquer bespoke cabinetry in Farrow and Ball Cornforth White with a White Fantasy worktop and splashback. The drinks bar, wine storage and audio visuals can be discreetly hidden behind pocket doors – we think you’ll agree it’s a very beautiful space.
