Here at Cherrywood Bespoke, we’re firm believers in the fact that the kitchen is the heart of the home. It marks the start and end of every day; from sitting down at breakfast time, to getting together for tea. It’s a versatile space, too – it can become the backdrop for hectic family get-togethers or low-key evenings spent with friends.

It only makes sense that any effort to transform this space needs to be considerate of the purposes that our spaces serve – and this is why it’s so important to choose the right bespoke kitchen company.

1. Define your vision

Before you start planning the practicalities of your kitchen refresh, it’s essential to have a clear vision of what you want. Consider your lifestyle, cooking habits, and aesthetic preferences. Do you see a sleek, fully functional and modern kitchen or a rustic, cosy space? 

By defining your vision upfront, you can communicate your requirements to your bespoke kitchen company of choice, and ensure that they can bring your dream kitchen to life. Here at Cherrywood Bespoke, we build on your vision by presenting you with options and in some cases, challenges; our suggestions could help you to consider something that might feel a bit different, all while satisfying your requirements.

2. Do your research

Finding the perfect bespoke kitchen company for your kitchen renovation requires thorough research and bypassing this step will only make it harder for you to see your vision come to life. You need to feel a complete sense of trust in your chosen provider, and you should feel assured that that they are going to be able to turn your vision into a reality, delivering on time and on budget.

While online reviews can be helpful, we’d suggest approaching them with caution. Look for testimonials to be accompanied by detailed case study information and imagery of the project, and be wary of fake posts. We’d also always suggest seeking recommendations from friends and family, as these are trustworthy, first-hand experiences. 

Here at Cherrywood Bespoke, we’re particularly proud of the reputation we have built over years of satisfied clients, creating stunning bespoke kitchens in Oxfordshire, Warwickshire, and Bedfordshire.

3. Quality craftsmanship

Given the range of purposes that your kitchen has in your home, it makes sense to prioritise premium, high-quality craftsmanship when you’re looking to improve this space.

One of the hallmarks of a reputable bespoke kitchen company is its commitment to quality craftsmanship – and this is evident across our bespoke shaker kitchens, plywood kitchen design, and contemporary designs.

4. Collaborative design process

We’re advocates of the idea that a successful kitchen renovation hinges on collaboration between the client and the design team – and this is something that we look to establish from our initial consultation at our Oxfordshire kitchen showroom

By taking a collaborative approach, we’re able to understand your needs, preferences, and budget, ensuring that the design brief we put together for your project reflects your requirements perfectly.  We set this tone for the projects we work on from the offset and it paves the way for smooth communication once work gets started.

5. Innovative touches

The best bespoke kitchen companies offer smart touches of innovation in their design briefs. From blending functionality with aesthetics, to creating a kitchen layout that flows effortlessly. We embody this by providing our sustainable plywood kitchens, and in the way we look to achieve a working triangle in your kitchen redesign. 

6. Attention to detail

A truly bespoke kitchen is characterised by its attention to detail, from carefully crafted cabinetry to custom hardware and finishes. 

When evaluating potential companies, pay close attention to the finer details of their workmanship. Our mission is to capture our customer’s vision down to the smallest detail, evolving your ideas into an entirely individual, bespoke kitchen design that you’ll love for years to come. 

7. Timely delivery

Renovating your kitchen is an exciting endeavour, but it can also be disruptive to your daily life. Select a bespoke kitchen company that adheres to strict timelines and delivers projects on schedule. We understand the importance of timely delivery and work diligently to ensure that your dream kitchen is completed within the agreed-upon timeframe.
