At Eric Bates & Sons we will help you turn your dream kitchen into a reality with clever design ideas to maximise space using a bespoke kitchen

The kitchen is the heart of the home and, as such, has numerous different functions to contend with throughout the day. Our modern day busy lives demand a space that is both practical and functioning as well as a reflection of our individual taste and lifestyle. As kitchen and furniture designers we have a wealth of experience at Eric Bates & Sons and we will help you identify your priorities and turn your dream kitchen into a reality with clever design ideas to maximise space using a bespoke kitchen.

The kitchen is the centre of the house and the lifeblood of the family home. Meals are cooked, snacks are grabbed, stories are told, woes are shared – for years the walls of the kitchen are privy to the events that define family life.

Such an important space deserves care and attention to detail. Cabinets and fittings need to be robust and fit for purpose; the design needs to work for whoever is using it and this is where a bespoke kitchen will come into its own for you.

The range of functions for this one room is endless; from busy working week breakfasts, lunch on the go, after school teatime, formal dinner parties or supper with friends right through to family Sunday lunch the kitchen needs to be flexible and user friendly. A bespoke kitchen will be tailored exactly to a family’s individual needs.

Areas for consideration when planning your kitchen include how much fridge and freezer space you need, oven and hob capacity and storage space. All these factors will be carefully balanced within the room to allow for maximum ease of use as well as incorporating social space with a table and chairs or perhaps a breakfast bar if space is limited.

With the current media emphasis on healthy eating, not to mention the elusive work / life balance that we all strive to perfect, a beautiful bespoke designed and built kitchen will bring out the chef or host in all of us. Having a functional room designed around you and your family’s needs can prove invaluable in juggling all the elements of modern day family life and create a great environment to cook fresh healthy meals for everyone to enjoy.

Although we would all love a great open space for our kitchen not all homes are afforded such a luxury but here at Eric Bates and Sons we pride ourselves on our ability to make the most of your room regardless of the size or shape. In fact we relish the challenge of creating a workable social space in the most compact area and we will do our best to use every inch of available space to maximum potential.

All our designs begin with a conversation about the way you use your kitchen, your cooking habits and your most commonly used items. By building a kitchen from scratch and utilising clever space-saving features with these points in mind, it makes the room comfortable and convenient for the family.

The advantage of bespoke kitchen designs is that of user-friendliness. It’s time to make the most of your kitchen and stop letting it hold you back…
