PROMOTIONAL FEATURE

A standard, flat-pack kitchen is unlikely to do your design-led home justice. Instead, why not opt for a bespoke approach that combines performance with sustainability, built both to fit your space perfectly and to last.

Buying a kitchen ‘off the peg’ might be simple and convenient, but the downsides begin as soon as it arrives. These kitchens are made to a standard size that just might not work with your layout, meaning you’re likely to be left with dead and under-utilised space.

A bespoke kitchen, however, such as one from Sustainable Kitchens, is crafted to fit to your exact specifications. Tricky corners and awkward recesses can be taken in its stride, while the hand-made approach means your kitchen can be tailored to how you and your family use it.

As well as a bespoke approach, Sustainable Kitchens pride themselves on an ethical supply chain, relying on local suppliers for FSC and PEFC-certified timber, but also for paint, handles and more. That locality also cuts the carbon footprint of every kitchen, as materials aren’t being shipped from across the world to your home. Various environmental policies, including a partnership with the Woodland Trust for replanting trees, are at the heart of the Sustainable Kitchens approach.

The finishing touches

This attention to detail extends to both kitchens and sustainability. The styles on offer include reclaimed wood, shaker, plywood, flat panel and contemporary looks, with top-quality materials, dovetail joints, the latest appliances and an agile approach to incorporating timeless elements with the latest developments in tech.
