Bespoking your kitchen

Bespoking your kitchen

Designing a kitchen that works for your particular space means you might want to look beyond the regular options for extra adjustments or individual details.

Nooks, beams, chimney breasts or sloping walls. The bones of most kitchens include a smattering of awkward or irregular ‘features’ (to be polite) that make a cookie-cutter kitchen design all but impossible. Add to that, the desire for a circular sink maybe or a particular sized cooker hood and many people find themselves needing cabinetry, fixtures or accessories that aren’t immediately to order.

 As kitchen makers of over 25 years, Neptune has designed pretty much every iteration of kitchen and resolved the most unusual of requests. From cabinetry created for the family dog to sleep in, to cupboards that work around a three-generations old AGA, or even the farm kitchen that needed to be painted in a shade that would disguise the mud when young lambs had to be nursed indoors - no challenge is too much.

Luckily the three main collections offer a great degree of flexibility just by the nature of their designs. Henley focuses on deep drawer cabinets, while Chichester has more cupboard options, and Suffolk is a combination of the two. And now, all the collections offer the option of plain or fluted glass panes for wall cupboards, while different larder cupboard options can be customised with interior lighting and marble or wood worksurfaces. Even furniture pieces like the freestanding Charlecote island can be adjusted to create an overhang for bar seating, or cabinets and drawers can be conformed to create an extra-slim – or extra-wide fitted island.

 Worktops too can be specked to create a sense of originality, be it the thickness of a solid wood worktop or an elegant Ogee-edged finish on a marble surface to elevate a classic island design. Hardware is also a good way to add an individual touch and Neptune offers an impressive array of cupboard handles in up to four finishes from chrome to black bronze and brass that can be mixed and matched.

But what about those specific design elements that can make all the difference to the final result? Neptune’s UK workshops and in-store design teams are at hand to help with requests from an original paint combination for the exterior and interior of cabinets to sourcing a brass kitchen tap. And they do it all with an eye to a customer’s budget – if a bespoke option proves too costly, then they can suggest an inventive combination of existing cabinetry, meaning no two Neptune kitchens will ever look the same.
