How to create the perfect kitchen

How to create the perfect kitchen

No matter the size, the kitchen is no longer just a place to cook and eat but is now considered to be the very heart of any home.

If you’re feeling your kitchen is letting you down, follow our simple tips from the professionals at Custom Made, experts in building and supplying quality fitted furniture and bespoke kitchens, to restore your kitchen to life. 

A kitchen table to make memories 

A table in the kitchen is the number one gathering place in any home and is used for so much more than eating meals. Whether that’s helping your children complete their homework while you prepare dinner or laughing with friends over for a glass of wine (or two), the kitchen table is also the place where you create precious memories. So even if you only have space for a tiny bistro set, a table is a must for any kitchen. 

Create a comfy seating area

If you have the room, consider putting a comfy sofa in your kitchen to create a more informal place for friends and family to relax. It’s also a great way to encourage them to stay and keep you company while you bring out your inner Nigella and cook them up a storm. Adding a TV also ensures you all don’t miss out on the latest must-see show. 

Design your dream kitchen yourself

Why settle for second best when you can have the kitchen of your dreams? A bespoke kitchen from Custom Made is designed and built around your exact needs, so no matter what your perfect kitchen entails, from an island and walk-in pantry to a built-in coffee machine or wine fridge, it can be achieved with the help of our experienced team.

Add personal touches 

As the heart of the home, your kitchen should be a place of both relaxation and fun. So why not add some personal touches that reflect your true personality and style? You could hang some family photos or favourite holiday snaps, display souvenirs from your travels, your collection of eclectic gin bottles or you could even place a statement fruit bowl in pride of place on your table!
