Bespoke. It simply means ‘Made for a particular customer’.
SO WHAT EXACTLY IS A BESPOKE KITCHEN AND HOW DOES IT DIFFERENTIATE FROM A CUSTOM KITCHEN?
Well, a bespoke kitchen is one that is unique from client to client. A kitchen that is tailor-made to suit your individual style and ideas. Custom-made simply means ‘Made to order’ so in fact ‘bespoke’ and ‘custom-made’ are both synonyms for each other!
Bespoke Kitchens = Custom-Made Kitchen
Having a bespoke kitchen means that the kitchen has been built around how you envisioned it rather than having to adapt your design and idea to what is available from the shelf. If the kitchen has been designed to fit around your unique space, no matter how big or small that design might be, then it is a bespoke kitchen.
As an independent manufacturer and retailer, one of our specialities is bespoke kitchens.
At System Six Kitchen, we have team dedicated to the creation of bespoke and custom-made kitchens. We possess the necessary machinery, skills and expertise to diverge from ‘run-of-the-mill’ kitchen designs and branch out into custom kitchen cabinets which are unique to your home.
So what elements of a kitchen tend do be bespoke or custom-made?
BESPOKE KITCHEN FEATURES: KITCHEN CABINETS
System Six Cabinets are some of the best you can get and we aren’t just saying that because we sell them, we’re saying it because we make and design them ourselves. Every cabinet in your kitchen has been built specifically for you, by our team, in our own factory.
In fact, we’ve been working on these cabinet designs for a while now and have been tweaking the design for over 45 years. Read more about our cabinets here!
While our list of standard kitchen units is comprehensive, we can create something tailor-made to your specific needs. This includes creating a cabinet to fit around an existing oak beam or adjusting the height of our wall units to cater for a lower ceiling. A popular choice is the inclusion of a feature cabinet to house a prized possession.

To those seeking that finishing touch, a trending idea right now is opting to engrave family members’ names on the drawers whilst others simply elect the title based on the drawers contents.
