HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE

The process generally begins with a meeting at the workshop where we can look at samples and discuss your plans and ideas.


After this you can continue to plan your kitchen, probably using the Ikea Kitchen Planner, bearing in mind the additional options available to you from Bespokea.


You can of course contact me at any time for advice and rough costings of one-off units, different door styles etc.

 

When you have made your final plans I will provide costs and a production schedule for your Bespokea items. I will also assist you in creating your Ikea shopping list if required.


Work will start on the payment of a 60% deposit. Production takes between 4 and 6 weeks depending on the door style and availability of some materials.


WE MAKE IT POSSIBLE

Running a spray finishing business brought me in contact with many architects, interior designers and builders. What they all have in common is the desire to produce something that looks great for as little money and effort as possible.

 

With a fitted kitchen this is done by spending the money on the externals – doors, drawer fronts, worktops etc… whilst using standard, basic units and fittings.


Over the years I estimate that at least 85% of trade clients doing this were using Ikea™ carcasses. The downside of this for someone who wants to do this for themselves is that they are missing the trade knowledge and contacts needed to create a professional look.


Bespokea makes this possible.

The clients choose oak for the wall units and handles to match the floor. A contrasting laminate was used for the interior of the shelving unit that replaces the conventional end panel.

The carefully selected walnut veneer creates the impression of a ribbon running around the base units. An extra wide door conceals the washing machine.

The Blue Valchromat makes a bold statement, hence used here just for the base units. The handle detail is specific to this layout.
