bespoke fitted kitchen

At Haywood Styles we appreciate that a kitchen isn’t something that you buy every day; throughout your lifetime you may only consider changing your kitchen a few times. When you choose to purchase a new bespoke kitchen it is important to make sure that you have the best possible design that offers both high-quality and durability.

If you choose a bespoke kitchen you can have a kitchen specifically designed and tailored to suit you and your needs. Bespoke kitchens have a great advantage over standard ‘off the shelf’ kitchens as they can be designed to fit around any shape and sized room. Our homes come in a variety of different shapes and sizes which can make fitting a standard kitchen into your home extremely difficult. This may result in you having to compromise on what features you are able to include in your kitchen. However with a bespoke design, the entire room, including all the fittings, will be made to measure and can be positioned wherever you desire. With standard kitchens, space is sometimes sacrificed, where as a bespoke kitchen offers the most efficient utilisation of the available space.

At Haywood Styles we guide our clients through the whole process, from an initial idea to the full installation of your kitchen. Our bespoke kitchens can be made in a wide variety of materials and finishes. We can therefore create a one-off kitchen that meets all of your individual styling requirements. For a range of kitchen inspiration and to see what designs we may be able to offer you, visit our portfolio page.

Remember

  • A truly bespoke kitchen is just that, anything is possible
  • Think about the whole space and not just the kitchen cabinetry
  • Consider using an interior designer who specialises in kitchens
  • Do your home work, try and really understand how you want the space to feel and look

Kitchen design services

With the fashion for an open plan kitchen, the question most asked by prospective clients is how do we make a kitchen dinner with bi-fold doors look amazing. In fact at the last Grand Designs Live Tristan held 23 ask the expert sessions, of which 19 were this style of space. In the 30 minutes available Tristan was able to produce a workable layout with focal points and a well zoned space, but this is only half the challenge. Clients often express the feeling of just not knowing where to start when it come to creating a space they and guest will walk into feel instantly wowed.

The key to success in any open plan kitchen space is a well thought out layout, considered lighting and focal points and a well developed visual concept that ties the space together. It is important to remember that a multi purpose space will actually have numerous pieces of furniture, views and finishes, building a pintrest board of ideas is always a good start, as designer it is great for us if a client has captured as many ideas as possible before we start on a project. To complement all of our kitchen designs we also produce a printable mood board to bring all the Finishes , textures , colour and lighting together , when viewed along side the plans and 3d visualisations this really helps a client to visualise as best as possible what the finished design will look like. We have recently added video walk through’s to our client presentations which prove very popular.
