We Help Make Kitchen Renovations a Success
In 2018 my tap snapped off. One minute I was washing dishes and the next water was spraying everywhere and – much to my wife’s amusement – I was left standing in a huge puddle of water. After years of making do with the aging cabinets in my Glasgow tenement, I decided to finally bite the bullet and invest in a completely bespoke new kitchen!
Easier said than done…
As I started shopping around for kitchen fitters that could meet my requirements, I found the choice of suppliers completely overwhelming! Not only was it hard to find a business that could match my plans for a completely bespoke design, I had no idea which suppliers I could trust to do a good job. All I wanted was to find a trustworthy local company that could manage the design, supply and fit of our new kitchen, and so, the idea for Bespoke Kitchen Experts was born.
Working with LGUK I partnered with a leading Scottish kitchen and bathroom company with showrooms in Stirling and Coatbridge, who have invested in modern machinery and design techniques that enable them to work to maintain the incredibly high standard of workmanship that our clients expect of us.
Our approach to simplifying the process has been a huge success and we are now able to offer services from Glasgow to Edinburgh, across the central belt and even down to Newcastle! Throughout this rapid growth our business philosophy has remained the same – exceed our clients expectations by making their dream homes a reality at a price point that offers unbeatable value!
We do this by nurturing long term relationships with leading kitchen stone and panel suppliers to reduce the cost of raw materials, completely customising your design, building in-house, and working with cutting edge technology and techniques to provide you with a high-quality product at a fair price.
We recognise that the kitchen is a space that has now become not only the pivotal point of the home, but also one of the most significant parts of a modern family’s lifestyle. It’s a space where the family comes together for dinners, and also a space to entertain family and friends for special moments. When our partners design a kitchen, they design it with your family’s practical needs in mind whilst maintaining a focus on developing a modern kitchen with natural aesthetics that will make your space truly unique!
Our goal is to find the best local kitchen designer and fitter for your requirements. We always prioritise finding the best solutions for you in order to relieve the stress that often comes with home improvement projects.

Where do I start?
Ideally, you should have an idea of the type and layout of kitchen you would like, the budget and the timeline. These could still be vague ideas, but they are a good starting point. Looking online for ideas or going to showrooms can help if you have time. Else the kitchen designer will be able to guide you through the different options.
Can I Spread the Cost of the Kitchen?
By being FCA regulated, the kitchen designer and fitter is able to offer you a finance offer that will suit your needs.
What can I do to reduce the cost?
One of the methods to reduce the cost of a new kitchen is by doing some of the work yourself if you are handy. This could include disassembling your old kitchen, doing the electricity and the plumbing (if you are qualified); anything that reduces the time for the tradespeople to spend in your property. The drawback is that you will have no guarantees of workmanship and quality on these aspects of the job.

Even if you don’t have the square footage you would like for your kitchen remodel project, it doesn’t mean you have to work cramped and inefficiently. An experienced and knowledgeable kitchen designer can make the most of a small space when designing any new kitchen. In fact, small kitchen design can be as complicated and complex as creating a design for a large kitchen.
One of the most difficult parts of designing kitchen layouts is the logistics. To make your new remodeled kitchen as functional as it can be, every inch counts.

But it may be helpful for you to know some of the essential measurements in advance to give you some basic knowledge of what makes a kitchen well organised.
Taking on a home renovation project yourself requires more than an eye for design. You need to understand how the various parts of a kitchen fit together, and you may even have to do some math. A home improvement project done wrong can be expensive to fix, or even dangerous. The benefits are that your cost of fitting the kitchen will be lower, but it will take you time to fit it in.
Eating pizza every night isn’t fun, and having to wash dishes in the bathtub is the opposite of fun. A temporary kitchen away from the construction mayhem can help you keep your sanity while your dream kitchen is under construction. A typical kitchen renovation project should last between 2 and 4 days. We can make sure that you still have access to hobs and sinks during some of those days.
Start by asking yourself this question: “what do I do most in the kitchen?” How you use your kitchen can be a good starting point for your design choices, from adding an island to where you’ll hide your trash cans. A new kitchen should be more than just a space to cook in; it is about improving the quality of your at-home life.
You should trust the kitchen designer you choose for your kitchen renovation. The designer should have enough experience to give you ideas for your kitchen and show you previous projects.

A kitchen renovation project is a huge investment. The kitchen designer you hire makes all the difference in how well the job turns out and what your experience throughout construction will be like.

The majority of kitchen renovation contractors are honest and conscientious. Unfortunately, it only takes a few bad apples to give every contractor a bad name.

Everyone is concerned about the dangers of COVID and how to stay healthy. These concerns have resulted in a desire for our homes to be safe spaces. Thus, the concept of the wellness kitchen was created.

Kitchen safety is extremely important because a kitchen can be a dangerous place. With its stoves, cooktops, microwaves and ovens, fires can start and burn injuries can occur.

Fire hazards while cooking can be prevented with well-maintained appliances, proper safety procedures and by never leaving food unattended.
Cabinet construction falls into two categories: framed and frameless. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages, and both provide design possibilities. You might not think the way your new cabinets are built is something you need to know about. However, the choice you make will affect how many cabinets you can fit in your new kitchen, how much you can fit into your cabinets, how long they will last and your style options.
The modern-day kitchen needs creative storage solutions more than ever before. As a home to appliances, cookware and specialty gadgets, it has become difficult to organise everything. Homeowners have demanded more storage, and manufacturers have responded to the demand by inventing creative storage solutions to help solve kitchen organising dilemmas. In fact, kitchen designers allocate almost as much time designing what goes inside cabinets as they do the outside.
