Handcrafted Kitchens London

Personal choice and creativity are often the main reasons many people choose to invest in  a handcrafted kitchen for their home. There are a wide range of choices available for any person to choose from – one can create the design they want and have the kitchen handcrafted and even be part of the design process. The homeowner decides on the materials and colours to be used. One key advantage with these types of kitchen is that they can fit in with the colour scheme of the whole house and  tastes and desires of the owner.

Choose A Reputable Company

These kitchens are made in such a way that the available space in a kitchen is utilized to the maximum. It is therefore important to engage the services of a reputable and renowned company for the best quality kitchen. Completion of work to set time limits is an advantage obtained from professional companies that produce handcraft kitchens. There are also several kitchen suppliers readily available on the internet. Before settling for the services of one supplier or company, it is important for a homeowner to shop around and compare the services, products, discounts and testimonials from other prior kitchen buyers.

Bespoke kitchens are designed in an exclusive way, and should be very comfortable and convenient when it comes to cooking. In recent times, these kitchens are increasingly becoming popular.  It is also an easy way to change the look and décor of an already built house  if the owner is fed up with their kitchen look.

 Choosing a Bespoke Kitchen Designer

Even a  small space can be utilized and maximized for the homeowners benefit. But it is important to find one that is affordable and within a homeowners budget without compromising on quality.

Greenwich Woodworks

We were sad to hear of the recent demise of local bespoke furniture firm Greenwich Woodworks.

According to the Greenwich Phantom site:

“Sadly high-end joinery company Greenwich Woodworks died at the beginning of the year. I don’t know the exact details, but I’m guessing it’s yet another victim of the current financial climate.”
