2022 is almost upon us, and a new year always makes us think about the changes we want to make. For many of us, this includes changes to our home. Such as a new kitchen.
If you’re planning a new kitchen in 2022 there are many aspects to consider. Our recent article Is It Time for a New Kitchen? outlines some of the decisions you need to make to ensure that your new kitchen will meet your needs.
But one other aspect to consider when planning your new kitchen is whether to buy off the shelf or get something handmade. Handmade is likely to cost more, but is it worth it?
In this article we look at:
- What is a handmade kitchen.
- Five reasons to invest in a handmade kitchen.
- Where to find your perfect handmade kitchen.
What is a handmade kitchen?
First and foremost, let’s look at what a handmade kitchen actually is.
Many of the kitchens you see, whether in kitchen showrooms or DIY stores, are mass-produced in factories. You can choose colours, styles and sizes from the ranges available, but are not getting anything that is original.
A handmade kitchen is made completely from scratch just for you. If you buy a handmade kitchen it will be created for your exact needs and requirements. The design, materials, colours, fittings and finishing touches are all chosen by you, the customer.
But how important is this? What are the main reasons you may want to go for a handmade kitchen rather than something mass-produced?
Let’s take a look.
Three good reasons to invest in a handmade kitchen
Make the most of the space you have
With a handmade kitchen you are not struggling to fit a square peg into a round hole. You can make the most of every inch of kitchen space with something that is both practical and beautiful. Everything will be designed for your needs and the space you have available.
A kitchen for living
A handmade kitchen design will be created to fit with the daily lives of you and your family. Kitchens are no longer just for preparing and eating food, they are the heart of the home. So if you want your kitchen to include a seating area or work area or entertaining area – together with all the technology you need – a handmade kitchen can achieve that.
A kitchen for life
Whilst a handmade kitchen is an investment, it is also the gift that keeps on giving. A handmade kitchen with well-designed contemporary materials and high quality fixtures and fittings, will last far longer than a mass-produced kitchen. Your new kitchen could be a kitchen for life.
