How to order your furniture

Understanding the Bespoke Furniture Ordering Process

Ordering bespoke furniture differs significantly from selecting standard items. It involves a series of essential steps designed to ensure that your custom pieces meet your expectations in design, functionality, and quality. Bespoke furniture offers unparalleled freedom in terms of form, size, and the materials used, which requires a bit more customer involvement, especially at the initial stages. Because each product is tailored to your specific requirements, incorporating many personalized details, here is a structured approach to guide you through the process:

Tip: During the early phases of design and estimation, comprehensive details are not necessary. A brief description of the room size and your design objectives is sufficient to begin. Based on this preliminary information, we will propose optimal solutions tailored to achieve the desired effect. Our strategy seeks to efficiently balance functionality and style, and will be refined as more specific data becomes available.

Optionally If you already have a design in mind and wish to explore what we can offer, please feel free to send it directly to us. We will review your design and provide you with a range of budget-friendly options.

1. Define Your Needs and Preferences

Assess Your Space:

Take measurements of your kitchen area to know the space you’re working with. Consider the layout, and note any existing features you plan to keep.

Inspiration and Concept:

Gather ideas from magazines, online platforms like Pinterest, or showrooms. Determine the style, colors, materials, and finishes you prefer.

Functionality Requirements:

Think about how you use your kitchen. Decide on the types of cabinets, appliances, and features (like pull-out shelves, soft-close drawers) that best suit your lifestyle.

Tip: After establishing a general plan and budget, we will arange a visit either to our studio workshop or your home. This meeting is crucial for fine-tuning the details previously discussed via correspondence and is the most time-effective step in our consultation process. We typically recommend this approach as it maximizes efficiency and ensures precision in the final output.

2. Consultations and Budget Planning

Set a Budget

Establish a budget early in the process. The cost of bespoke furniture can vary widely, so having a predefined budget helps guide decisions about materials and features, ensuring you get the best value for your investment.

Contingency Fund

Allocate an additional 10-20% of your budget for unexpected expenses or last-minute alterations. This will help manage any unforeseen costs smoothly and keep your project on track.

Contact Us to Consult

This is when our collaboration begins. Over the years, we have refined various consultation methods to accommodate the unique needs of each customer, regardless of their proximity to our workshop. Whether initiating contact through a call, video conference, or efficient email exchanges—particularly beneficial in the early stages of concept sharing—we ensure the process is tailored to your convenience.

3. Design Phase

Initial Design Concepts:

One of the key advantages of choosing bespoke furniture is the personalized design process. We collaborate closely with you to develop initial sketches or 3D models that vividly bring your ideas to life. This process includes:

  • Tailored Layout Design: We will develop and optimise the layout that best utilizes the available space in your kitchen, bedroom or other space, which is a subject of work, ensuring both aesthetic appeal and functional efficiency.
  • Material Selection: Together, we will select high-quality materials that not only meet your style preferences but also complement the overall design of your home.
  • Incorporating Specific Features: Whether you need innovative storage solutions or unique design elements, we integrate all your specific features into the initial models.



During the process, we will communicate with you to create a form that will match your budget and expectations.

4. Production and Quality Checks

Furniture Production:

Once you approve the design, we will accommodate your project in our production schedule. We will stay in touch with you to update you about the progress.

Quality Assurance:

We will manage the quality control processes to ensure the finished product meets our high standards. The quality of our products is extremely important to us. It is not a mass-produced product designed to be sold and forgotten. It builds our reputation and brand strength. That is why we use only well-tested components and techniques to avoid potential problems and disappointments.

5. Delivery or Delivery and Installation.

Delivery and Dry Fitting:

Quality installation is crucial to achieving the desired outcome with bespoke furniture. At our company, a single dedicated team handles every aspect of your project—from initial measurements to the final installation of your kitchen or wardrobe. This streamlined process ensures consistency and excellence at every step.

Supply-Only Option:

If you prefer to use your own installer, we offer a supply-only option. We will maintain communication with your chosen fitter to ensure the installation is executed smoothly and precisely. Opting for supply-only can also expedite delivery, as it eliminates the need to coordinate fitting schedules with other ongoing projects.

What are the benefits of plywood kitchen cabinets?

Plywood is a good choice for kitchen cabinets because it is more stable in high-humidity environments and resists warping or cracking. It is also made from renewable wood sources and is, therefore, a sustainable material.

  • Attractive and modern look
  • Available in multiple decor options.
  • High water resistance
  • Suitable for shipbuilding (MED certified)

Are plywood kitchen cabinets durable?

Plywood is a good choice for kitchen furniture, such as cabinets and worktops, due to its inherent strength and durability, which are key considerations in a kitchen environment where the furniture is subjected to frequent use and varying conditions.

Layered Construction: Plywood is an engineered wood product made from three or more thin layers of wood veneers, or plies, that are glued together with adjacent layers having their wood grain rotated up to 90 degrees to one another. This cross-graining technique reduces the risk of expansion and shrinkage, giving the plywood stability and reducing the likelihood of warping or cracking, which is essential in the kitchen where temperature and humidity can fluctuate.

Strength: Because of its layered structure, plywood is strong and can bear heavy loads. This makes it suitable for holding countertops, heavy kitchen appliances, or stacks of dishes in upper cabinets without bending or sagging over time.

Resistance to Moisture: While not completely waterproof, certain types of plywood, like marine plywood or those treated with water-resistant glues, are quite resilient against moisture. In a kitchen, exposure to steam and spills is common, and plywood’s ability to withstand this, to some extent, makes it suitable for such an environment.

Versatility in Finishing: Plywood can be finished with a variety of sealants, laminates, or veneers, which not only enhances its appearance but can also provide additional protection from moisture, heat, and scratching. Finishes like laminates or lacquers can further extend the life of plywood kitchen furniture.

Ease of Repair and Maintenance: Should the surface get damaged, it can be sanded down and resealed or refinished, which is a significant advantage over some other materials that when damaged, might need complete replacement.

What is the cost of fully bespoke plywood kitchen?

The cost of a fully bespoke plywood kitchen is influenced by various factors, and understanding these can help in estimating the overall budget for such a project.


Firstly, the size of the kitchen is a primary cost driver. Larger kitchens require more materials and labor, thereby increasing the overall price. If the kitchen has a larger footprint or requires more cabinetry, this will naturally lead to a higher cost.


Secondly, the type of components selected also plays a significant role in pricing. Bespoke kitchens involve custom-made cabinets, drawers, and items that can vary in price. High-end hardware, such as soft-close hinges and custom organizers, will add to the cost.

Similarly, the choice of finishes, like the aforementioned Fenix NTM laminates, Formica, Egger laminates, and additional options such as Corian or Ceramic cladding, also affects the final price.

Premium materials and finishes are more expensive but contribute to the durability and aesthetic of the kitchen.


Thirdly, the complexity of the design influences the cost. A kitchen with simple, straight-line cabinets will be less expensive than one with intricate designs, custom-built islands, or features like integrated appliances, which require more time and skill to construct and install.


Given these variables, bespoke plywood kitchens starting budget is around £15,000. However, most projects oscillate between £25,000 and £50,000. This price range accounts for a moderate to high level of customization and material quality. Very complex projects, which may include luxury finishes and extensive custom work, can exceed this range, reaching higher budgets accordingly.
