If you’re looking for a new kitchen that’s going to really stand out, you might consider bespoke shaker kitchens. Shaker furniture is celebrated for its traditional simple style, and there are brands that create kitchens in this style.
The problem is that they’re very high-end manufacturers, so perhaps this might be out of your budget. Or maybe not.
Where can you buy bespoke shaker kitchens?
If money’s no object, there are kitchen companies that produce stunning bespoke shaker kitchens. You may know some of the names — Tom Howley, Harvey Jones, Martin Moore, deVOL. You’ll get a beautiful kitchen from any of these, but it’ll cost you an arm and a leg. Essentially, you’ll be paying for the name.
If you want that kind of quality but don’t have the budget, though, you needn’t give up. Many of the smaller, lesser-known independent kitchen showrooms also sell bespoke kitchens to a similar standard.
Their prices vary enormously. Some of these showrooms charge similar prices as the well-known brands, and some even more. There are showrooms, however, that sell high-quality bespoke shaker kitchen units for substantially less than the big names.
But how do you find those showrooms? It’s like looking for a needle in a haystack — but finding needles in haystacks is what we do. We’ll find you an independent showroom that sells bespoke shaker kitchens without breaking the bank.
Save on worktops, appliances and fitting too
The right showroom will offer large savings on the units, but that isn’t all. You’ll need quartz or granite worktops to go with the units, as well as appliances. These too are expensive if you go to the big names, but far less at the right independents.
Then there’s the fitting. Again, the big names charge a premium price, but some independents do as good a job for far less. Typically, it’ll cost you £4,000-£5,000 to have the kitchen fitted by the well-known companies. Many of the showrooms I’ve mentioned will do it for as little £2,000.
What kind of overall savings can you make on bespoke Shaker kitchens?
So what’s the bottom line? For a good sized, 25 unit kitchen, including quartz, granite or Corian worktops, appliances and fitting, you’re probably looking at about £60,000 from one of the big names. From the right independent kitchen showrooms, you could get just as great quality and service for about £40,000.
However, you still need to find those showrooms. And that’s where we come in.
We’ll recommend local showrooms whose bespoke shaker kitchens are comparable in quality to places like Tom Howley, Harvey Jones, Martin Moore & deVOL, but cost a fraction of the price.
