National kitchen retailer vs Spaces By Design

National kitchen retailers may offer a wide variety of kitchen styles and finishes, but we believe that when investing in your home, attention to detail is crucial. At Spaces By Design, we go beyond the brief and consider every aspect of your kitchen living space – how it will work for your needs and how we can design your space most effectively.

When choosing where to invest in your dream kitchen, the decision between a local independent kitchen design company like Spaces By Design and a national chain can significantly impact the finished space. Let's delve into the differences between the two and why Spaces By Design might be the perfect fit for you.

National kitchen retailers often stick to standard door sizes and cabinets, limiting your ability to create a bespoke or custom unit. At Spaces By Design, we take pride in our ability to tailor every aspect of your kitchen to your exact specifications. Whether you are dreaming of a unique cabinet configuration or a one-of-a-kind layout, our design expertise ensures that no detail is overlooked.

Also, while national chains may offer flat-pack carcasses assembled on-site by installers, our units are supplied rigid, built, and tested in the factory. This guarantees superior quality and durability but also saves you the hassle of dealing with assembly issues down the line.

When it comes to colour options, national retailers often limit you to a handful of choices, typically white, grey, or oak. However, at Spaces By Design, we offer a wide range of carcass colours, including several wood finishes, allowing you to customise your kitchen to your heart's content.

Hardware quality is another area where we stand out. While national chains may skimp on premium hardware, we exclusively use top-of-the-line German hardware for hinges and runners, ensuring smooth operation and long-lasting performance.

But perhaps the most significant advantage of choosing Spaces By Design is our commitment to customer service. Unlike national retailers, we offer a customer-facing approach, meaning you're always in the communication loop from ideation to installation. Our turn-key solution ensures a seamless experience from start to finish, with our team of experts guiding you every step of the way.
