A bespoke kitchen is a custom-made kitchen that is designed and built to meet the specific requirements and preferences of an individual or client, often using high-quality materials and craftsmanship. Each kitchen is uniquely tailored to room, floor plan, design style and finishes, with the customers vision ultimately in mind.
Yes, we defiantly think so. But then we may be biased.
Whether a bespoke kitchen is worth the money ultimately depends on the individual’s priorities and budget. A bespoke kitchen can be more expensive than a standard or pre-made kitchen, but it offers several benefits such as personalized design, high-quality materials, and precise fitting to the space available.
If having a unique and personalized kitchen is a top priority and the budget allows for it, then a bespoke kitchen may be worth the investment. However, if affordability is a priority and customization is not as important, then a standard or pre-made kitchen may be a better option. Ultimately, the decision comes down to individual preferences, priorities, and budget constraints.
Statistics from the readers digest have shown that the average house value increase by 11% when a luxury kitchen is installed.
Though ultimately the value that a bespoke kitchen can add to your home will vary depending on several factors such as the quality of the materials used, the level of customization, and the design choices.
Generally speaking, it takes around 8 weeks to build, paint and fit a bespoke kitchen from scratch.
Of course the time it takes to make a bespoke kitchen can vary depending on other factors such as the size and complexity of the project, the availability of materials and schedule. With the proper planning and designs in place 8 weeks should be ample.
The most expensive parts of a new kitchen are typically the cabinets. Custom-made cabinets using high-quality materials such as solid wood or custom finishes can significantly increase the cost of a new kitchen. Similarly, high-end countertops made from materials like marble, granite, or quartz can also add to the overall cost.
Other factors that can contribute to the cost of a new kitchen include appliances, flooring, lighting, and plumbing fixtures. However, the cost of these components can vary widely depending on the specific products and brands chosen.
Our kitchens usually start from around 20k.
With that said, at Thomas Matthew we recognize that each individual has unique budget limitations, and we are dedicated to collaborating with you to produce a design that fulfils your requirements while still remaining within your budget.
All we ask is that you tell us your budget before commencing design work, as this will ultimately effect what we can and cant include within the design.
At Thomas Matthew, we value open communication with our clients throughout the design process and actively seek feedback and suggestions. We strive to collaborate with you to ensure that your final design is precisely what you envisioned.
The Design Phase typically takes between 4 to 8 weeks to complete, although smaller projects with fewer decisions may require less time, while larger projects may take 6 to 10 weeks. The biggest factor for determining this is how quick the customer is at making decisions and how far through the decision/design process they are before approaching us.
