Our customers choice was a kitchen from our Eco2 range, giving us soft close everything and the ability to make units any size we like.
Remember my earlier blog "Small but perfectly formed for a tenner"..... 1 dimension change costs a tenner !
On this kitchen we're fighting round a pillar and under the staircase to upstairs, big beam in the way and the back door opens very close to the end of the run.
The wall unit under the beam is an odd size to ensure a perfect fit, filling the space and giving continuity to the run.
The last base unit on the left is 660mm long, 320mm deep and 720mm high. 2 dimension changes make the unit tuck in nicely, clear the back door ( to the left ) and maximise the use of that space.
The diagonal corner base going under the stairs is squeezed down to 850mm x 850mm to make sure it goes in and a short false wall panel behind it, blocks the slope off nice and square to give a useable section of worktop and a huge storage cupboard in, what would have been, dead space.
As you can see sneaking in at the top right of the picture, the wall unit to the right of the hood ( visible in the picture above ) has been made shorter in height and wider to provide better storage and brought down to level across the bottom so everything still lines through. There is a useable space above it for jars, pots etc.
All the other units used are pretty much standard sizes, so by just bespoke building certain units the rest fall into place and it only costs the tenner for each dimension change on the ones that need it.
With the few units we made bespoke only costing £70 in total for modifications, you get a kitchen that is perfectly fitted, no space wasted, storage volume maximised and importantly, it looks right when finished and no stupid, unnecessary filler panels panels banged in everywhere because nothing fits properly !!! You can't tell me that's not worth £70 !!
Bespoke done properly is not expensive, very effective and well worth doing. If only all kitchens were done this way .... the Milestone way ... the world would be full of better fitting kitchens but until then, if you want it doing right, we need to talk !!
