In 2010, insurance company London Victoria (LV) stated that there has been a 45% increase on money spent on kitchens since 2005. Their study had shown that the majority of households regard their kitchen to be the most significant room of the house, and will spend an average of £4,000 to have a made to measure kitchen that will suit their lifestyles (1).
The kitchen is the heart of the home. It is where experiments are baked, meals are cooked and the all important beer is kept. Kitchens are not quiet, relaxing rooms, but a room that is used to make food with love (and more often than not frustration) and create memories.
As the kitchen is the hub of the home, it is important that you have a kitchen that suits your needs and suits your family’s personality. A bespoke kitchen is designed to suit your lifestyle and has several benefits.
