Our step-by-step guide to designing and installing a bespoke luxury kitchen.

Designing and installing a bespoke luxury kitchen is a significant investment and requires careful planning and attention to detail. At Cooks & Company, we understand your unique needs and preferences when creating a beautiful and practical space. That's why, when you start working with us, we'll take you on a
detailed and personalised journey that ends at your destination, 'Dream Kitchen'.

Getting it right from the very start

Collaborating with a kitchen designer before you start any work on a kitchen renovation project is crucial for several reasons. 
● An experienced designer can offer valuable insights on everything from layout and functionality to materials and finishes, ensuring that your kitchen has the wow factor and functions impeccably. 
● They can help you stay within budget, make informed decisions about appliances and fixtures, and provide creative solutions to lifestyle challenges. For example, you might want a kitchen that makes the most of your outdoor space. A knowledgeable designer will have all the answers.
● A designer can help you avoid costly mistakes and delays, so your renovation project runs smoothly and completes on time. Only apply for planning permission or upgrade your electrics and plumbing once an expert has cast an eye over your available space.  Ultimately, engaging with a kitchen designer can help you achieve the kitchen of your dreams while avoiding potential headaches and setbacks.

What to expect when creating a bespoke kitchen

Our design team are located at The Cooks & Company showroom based in the picturesque town of Newark on Trent. Our recently transformed showroom is overflowing with luxury kitchen inspiration, so if you're looking to invest in a bespoke handmade kitchen this year, we'd love for you to come and visit. Here's what you can expect when you do.

A warm welcome

A team member will greet you, and you'll discuss your aspirations for your new kitchen. This first meeting is an opportunity for you to ask questions and understand what Cooks & Company can offer.

Showroom Tour

Moving on to the tour. We’ll highlight our unique kitchen and home appliance displays.

The Cooks & Company Consultation

After the tour, you can sit with one of our sought-after designers to discuss your aspirations. The designer will help you choose the right kitchen design and appliances, carefully considering your preferences, lifestyle, and budget. The consultation is an essential step in your journey with us; it allows our design team to discover your needs, and together you’ll explore tailored solutions.

After your consultation, the magic happens.

Design Proposal

Based on the consultation, our design team will create a proposal detailing the Cooks & Company suggested layout, appliances, and finishes. The proposal will include a 3D design model to help you immerse yourself in the process and visualise your dream kitchen. The design proposal lets you see how your ideas have been reimagined into a firm plan.

Final Proposal

Once you're satisfied with the design proposal, we'll provide a final recommendation, including a detailed quote for your project. The final proposal outlines the project's scope, including the installation timeline and any additional services you need. At this point, we want you to feel satisfied and excited about what's to come.


Once you approve the final proposal, your project gets scheduled for installation. Our team of kitchen engineers take care of everything, from delivery to placing all the fittings and appliances you've chosen in the suitable locations. You're in good hands with our team of experts.
