Bespoke is a British word for "custom," and bespoke cabinets refer to handmade custom cabinets. All types of bespoke furniture are available from custom crafters.
Bespoke cabinets add a rich, custom look to any kitchen. In addition to the cabinets, a bespoke culinary center and range hood can remake the room into a truly new experience. Some bespoke cabinetry makers offer designs that have interchangeable panels. When your mood changes you can call on the cabinetry company to dispatch workers and in less than a day your kitchen will be transformed simply by changing out the current panel for a new color, design or grain. If you're feeling festive, some bespoke cabinetry makers offer seasonal-themed panels.
Bespoke cabinets can be made to suit any taste, from austere to ornate, simple to decorative. Matching one-of-a-kind bespoke kitchen tables can carry the theme further. Bespoke furniture is designed to either match or change the personality of the house according to the desires of the owner.
Bespoke furniture can be made to replicate the intricate workmanship and style of a bygone era, or in the case of ultra-modern design, an era yet to come. The high quality of bespoke furniture is such that a piece might very well be passed along in later generations as a family heirloom.
Aside from beauty, bespoke furniture can be very practical in that it is made to utilize the space in your home to its best possible advantage. The shape of any bespoke furniture, its edges and design, will take into account the shape and angles in the room.
In an age of industrialization, machined parts, and assembly line production, bespoke furniture calls us back to the days when fine craftsmen like John Henry Belter (1804-1863) worked with his hands to lovingly produce cabinetry and furniture unlike any other, intricate, beautiful, and of the highest quality. If this type of furniture appeals to you, bespoke cabinets may be just what you're looking for. But beware once you get the fever. Your living room, bedrooms and den may be next!
