HOW MUCH IS A HANDMADE KITCHEN?
ARE HAND BUILT KITCHENS BETTER THAN OFF-THE-SHELF KITCHENS?
To put it bluntly, handmade kitchens are much better quality than shop-bought pre-fab kitchens.
There are a huge amount of differences between off-the-shelf and bespoke handmade kitchens. The major difference is the quality and longevity of the products where shop bought kitchens have a much shorter life span than handmade pieces.
An off-the-shelf kitchen may look great but the same level of quality and craftsmanship is often lacking, resulting in a product that looks good initially, but after time the defects will start to show, especially in the cabinetry.
Handmade products are built well and made to last. Subtle differences such as the jointing methods and quality of the base materials can result in huge differences a couple of years down the line. Our bespoke kitchens are made to measure, we can use any materials you wish and with any finish. There are no limits to what we can do!
WHAT ARE THE BEST MATERIALS TO USE IN A KITCHEN?
Depending on your taste and requirements, we can use almost any materials in your kitchen. As standard we us Brown Maple timber for painted doors and frames for it's hardness and durability. Hardwood Plywood for our kitchen carcases for its strength, longevity and increased resilience against moisture (opposed to MFC or MDF).
We have experienced designers who can let you know what is possible and what may not be practical to use in the long run. We are here to guide you and create the perfect product but don't forget, you're the boss! We are happy to have as much or as little input in the design process as you like and we can offer our advice and assistance at any point.
HOW LONG DOES A CUSTOM KITCHEN TAKE TO BUILD?
Due to the fact that our kitchens are hand-built from scratch, the entire process is generally longer than if you were buying a pre-fab kitchen but the end result will make a world of difference and we promise it is worth the wait. Get in touch to find out our current timescales.
WHAT ARE THE BEST QUALITY KITCHEN FINISHINGS?
At Steven Andrews Bespoke we source the finest quality finishings to add an extra level of luxury to your home. We work alongside many high quality suppliers offering beautiful products to complement our kitchen cabinetry.
For appliances we recommend Fisher Paykel, Miele, Neff, Bora and Novy. For hardware we love Armac Martin, Clemo & Fitch and Brusso. Incredible finishings ensure that your kitchen will look and feel priceless.
HOW DO I DESIGN MY PERFECT KITCHEN?
Designing the perfect kitchen takes time and consideration. Understanding the user and what they need from their space is essential. Starting with your cooking and cleaning areas and working from there to best position the cabinetry in your room. We will guide you through the whole process starting with the initial design phase to assess the likely cost of your project then into a detailed CAD design phase to fully detail your design.
DOES HANDMADE FURNITURE LAST LONGER?
Handmade furniture will last for decades and beyond. Our cabinets are built using time proven joinery techniques and are incredibly strong and long lasting. All our work is crafted to the absolute highest quality and our trained craftsmen check each piece throughout the process to ensure there are no faults or defects in the furniture. Our added care and quality checks result in furniture that will not only look incredible and be fit for purpose, but our hand-built furniture will last much longer than any shop-bought or off the shelf furniture.
CAN I HAVE FITTED FURNITURE IN AN OLD HOUSE WITH WONKY WALLS?
We can build fitted furniture to fit any space and any size. It doesn't matter if your home is a perfectly straight new build or a 500 year old cottage with wonky walls, bumps and sloping ceilings, our experts will measure your home to millimetre precision and we can design furniture to fit exactly in the space you have.
Fitted furniture is the ideal solution in an old house if you are looking to get the perfect finish.
