Bespoke kitchens are inevitably more expensive than standard ones, but they can be worth the extra money. Yours can become a beautiful, multi-functional focal point in your home, as well as adding to your property’s overall value.
In this guide, we’ll look at the average cost of a bespoke kitchen, to help you plan your exciting project.
How much does a bespoke kitchen cost?
The average bespoke kitchen cost can vary significantly depending on the quality and specification of your kitchen design. The higher-end your materials, the more it is likely to cost.
You’ll need to factor in the costs of cabinetry, fitting the kitchen and appliances. You may also need to pay design costs, unless you’re designing the kitchen yourself.
With all things considered, your bespoke kitchen could cost anywhere between £20,000 and £75,000.
|Low cost||High cost||Average cost|
|Bespoke kitchen cost (total)||£20,000||£75,000||£47,500|
|Fitting (per day)||£250||£300||£275|

Small bespoke kitchen cost
The smaller the space, the less a new kitchen is likely to cost. While you will still be paying more for a bespoke design than a standard kitchen, the space will restrict the number of units and appliances you can fit in. You’ll also need less in the way of worktop, flooring and tiling materials.
Average cost of bespoke kitchen cabinetry
One of the major costs in any kitchen is the cabinets – your cupboards, pantry units and drawers.
In a bespoke kitchen, cabinetry can cost between £12,000 and £25,000. This depends on how many units you have and the complexity of the design.

Design and fitting costs for bespoke kitchens
If you’d like a professional kitchen consultant to design you a beautiful new kitchen, this can cost anywhere between £50 and £750.
Another crucial cost to consider is the fitting. Experienced kitchen specialists will usually charge around £275 a day – this is for two people, as these kinds of jobs are often done in pairs. The total time your project will take depends on the size of the kitchen and the complexity of the design.
Lastly, there are appliances to cost up. You could buy low to mid-range appliances for around £10,000, or splash out up to £50,000 or even more on top-of-the-range items.
Can I fit a bespoke kitchen myself?
If you have the required skills and experience, you can fit your bespoke kitchen yourself. But it’s strongly recommended to use a kitchen fitting specialist, as bespoke items can be more difficult to fit. If you want the very best finish and nothing to go wrong, you’ll need the skill of an experienced craftsperson.
How long does it take to install a bespoke kitchen?
The actual work of fitting a bespoke kitchen should take around 10-15 days. However, you should allow around six months for the project as a whole, including design, planning, delivery, installation and completing the finishing touches.
Do I have to use a kitchen designer?
It’s not mandatory to use a kitchen consultant or designer – you can design your bespoke kitchen yourself. But it could be a smart decision, as a professional can help you get the best from the space and your money. They can also help you get the highest quality of finish.
