Before you contact us, we need to ask you if you’re ready to create your dream kitchen – if the answer is a resounding ‘yes’, you’re in the right place. At Shape London, we take the utmost pride in actualising our clients’ visions. It doesn’t matter what you want from your bespoke kitchen, our team of experts will find a way to make it happen. Before we can bring your dreams to life, there are a few things you need to consider first.
What Does Your Dream Kitchen Need To Do?
Are you a keen cook who needs ample room to create mouth-watering dishes? Do you have a big family who often gather around the table? Is your kitchen usually the most exciting room when you throw a party? These are all questions that we want you to think about before we can draw up the plans for your new space.
If you’re a keen cook but you don’t want to have your appliance on show, we can create handy storage spaces around your worktops for you to stash your gadgets. We’ll design bespoke joinery pieces that will truly last, so you can enjoy your dream kitchen with your entire family around the table for years to come. For those that know their friends prefer to linger in the kitchen rather than the living room during social occasions, our team will ensure that we integrate wine racks and plenty of space for glasses. If you want to create an open, welcoming environment, we will pay close attention to the layout of your kitchen to ensure your needs are met.
In truth, we can do anything you want. You simply need to explain your vision to us and we’ll run with it.
Does Your Kitchen Need To Follow Trends?
Certain features become a trend from time to time but that doesn’t mean these so-called trends can’t be timeless. In 2023, island and peninsula kitchens are on the rise. These are perfect for those who want their loved ones to be involved – it’s everyone’s dream kitchen! Picture the scene – you’re cooking dinner for your nearest and dearest, chopping ingredients over at the island while they laugh at the table, which is just feet away.
Kitchens that heavily feature natural wood are also becoming increasingly popular. At Shape, we’re well-versed in creating such bespoke kitchens. Wood is known for creating a warm, cosy atmosphere, so if that’s the mood you want your space to evoke, we’ll do everything within our power to create the kitchen you’ve been longing for.
What’s The Vibe?
Speaking of moods, whether it’s playful and bright, demure and elegant, or simple and classic, we understand the importance of how your space feels. We’ll take into account how much natural light your kitchen usually gets and how this will impact our design and colour choices.
Naturally, how you want your dream kitchen to feel will have an enormous impact on how it looks as these concepts go hand in hand. When describing this to our team, we’ll start thinking about paint colours, types of wood, handle options and a host of other factors, which will combine to create a space that you can enjoy for years to come.
What’s In Your Dream Kitchen?
We’re not just talking about the fridge or the oven, we’re talking about the details – the things that will make your kitchen special. From delicate brass handles on your bespoke cabinetry to thoughtful drawer inserts to separate your coffee pods, we want your kitchen to work for you, right down to the smallest details. It’s our goal to provide a truly bespoke service and these touches are simply part of the process.
At Shape, we understand that creating an eco friendly house is often at the forefront of our client’s minds. Having foregone fast furniture in favour of a bespoke kitchen, the next step is to incorporate these materials further. Here are just a few examples of what we might use in your dream kitchen:
Foresso is a terrazzo-like material that’s made from timber offcuts sourced in the UK. We think it looks striking when used for worktops or backsplashes in light, bright kitchens.
Eco Friendly Tiles
Speaking of backsplashes, we also highly recommend Eco Friendly Tiles. Much like ourselves, Eco Friendly Tiles believe you shouldn’t have to choose between helping the environment and creating high-quality products that look great.
You may have heard us mention Richlite before but we really do think it’s great. It’s a recycled paper composite material that can be used for solid surfaces. We often use it as a result of how much character it adds to any project, whether we opt for counters, cabinetry or panelling.
These are just some of the materials we’re likely to discuss with you when we start working on your dream kitchen. Naturally, there are other things to consider and we’d love to discuss them with you.
