We make our clients happy!

We are extremely happy with the service provided from start to finish. Derek, Alan, Vanessa and Declan were very thorough and accomodating with all our requirements and provided an extremely professional service. It was a delight to work with Vanessa. She is an extremely good designed and very accomodating. We have plans to get a few more things done and I will definitely be going back to Custom Made in the near future.


I am delighted with the service received from Custom Made! They designed and built an alcove unit and two built-in wardrobes for me, and in each case I was delighted with the difference they made to the rooms: they feel brighter and more spacious now. The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.


Custom made previously provided stunning alcove cabinets for our new home. This year we gave them the difficult job of exactly replicating those units after we had extensive flood damage to our home. Vanessa and the team did an amazing job and now our sitting room feels just like home again. It was a pleasure to deal with custom made throughout the whole process from design to installation. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautifully finished custom carpentry.


We cannot recommend Custom Made enough! From the moment I first spoke with Vanessa their attention to detail was incredible. Derek dropped in to discuss our requirements and measured up, then we received emailed drawings of our units for our approval. Eoin, their cabinet installer, was an absolute gentleman, very polite and professional. We are delighted with our finished cabinets!

Thomas & Martina

We are thrilled with the quality of work and customer service we received from Custom Made. They designed and built a big kitchen unit and a desk that fit our needs perfectly. We asked for the unit to match the colour and design of our kitchen and they did it to perfection. The installation team were neat and efficient, and were happy to make any changes we requested. We cannot recommend Custom Made highly enough.


I found the team very professional and helpful throughout. In particular, Vanessa was fantastic to deal with — and the main reason we went with Custom Made in the first place. The end product (built in shelving units and floating shelves) was spot on. Couldn't be happier and would highly recommend.


We couldn’t recommend Custom Made highly enough. They were very professional and reasonably priced. We are delighted with our built in wardrobes, alcove units, floating shelves and kitchen. Vanessa worked with us at every stage from initial call-out to installation to make sure we were happy with everything and any late changes were very kindly accommodated. We will definitely use Custom Made again and recommend them to friends and family!

The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.


We recently engaged Custom Made to design and install fitted wardrobes, hallway storage, alcove storage and a TV unit in our home. From the initial emails to meeting the designers and fitters, we were very happy with the service. We felt our ideas and requests were really taken on board during the design stage; no question or request was too trivial for Vanessa. The team who worked in our home, from the fitters, apprentices and delivery men were incredibly helpful, professional and hard-working.


Delighted that we selected Custom Made to work on our new furniture. Thanks to their invaluable help at the design stage (thank you so much Vanessa!) we can enjoy our bespoke furniture which we absolutely love. It has been a great experience from the design stage to installation; they are very professional, the quality of work is second to none and they are such a pleasure to deal with. We have a few more rooms to fill and will definitely use Custom Made's services again.


Custom Made are a very professional outfit! They made and installed a walk in wardrobe with revolving floor to ceiling shoe racks for us as per our design and we absolutely LOVE IT. Many many thanks to Vanessa (best of luck in your new home!), she was extremely helpful and patient, always in good humour while dealing with us, such a lovely person to deal with. Thank you!


Simply brilliant to work with. We went with Custom Made because of their strong reviews — So glad we did! Vanessa designed the pieces and worked with me to adjust the designs until they were perfect, being super-responsive and patient all the way through. She kept us up to date about installation dates, and the team arrived on the date promised. The result is delightful - we're so happy with the two units! Highly recommend them!


We installed alcove units with floating shelves in our living room and were delighted with the finished product. Our house is old so it wasn't a straight forward job but the team did an outstanding job fitting the units to such a high standard on the day. Vanessa is fantastic to work with. She was prompt with answers to any questions we had and was happy to help with every step of the process. I would happily use Custom Made again for work in our house.


We had wardrobes built by Custom Made recently and couldn't be happier with them. We had some ideas but Vanessa's suggestions were invaluable, they were also flexible about what we wanted to do unlike some other companies we had approached. The team were great and we are delighted with the finished product. Highly recommend!


Bespoke Kitchens Ireland

Without a shadow of a doubt, a bespoke kitchen will be an investment that will require a budget, a company that provides exceptional customer service and a team of designers working alongside experienced tradesmen.

One of the first concerns that people are faced with is, of course, the budget. It is hard to give an estimate on how much a kitchen will cost in Ireland until you describe your available space and what exactly you want to get done. There are different aspects of designing a bespoke kitchen such as materials, labour and fitting. Other elements such as worktops and tiling can also be factored in depending on one's needs.

The planning stage of creating bespoke kitchens Ireland is one of the most exciting. The sheer number of different types of colour combinations and styles makes the final choice a difficult one. However, with the help of a talented designer you should be able to make the right decision for you.

Bespoke Kitchen Ideas

Let’s begin with the basics. On websites like Pinterest you can search for kitchen designs and choose a style that you like. We found that it is easier to eliminate everything you don’t like from the beginning and focus on the things that you love.

Once you’re inspired and have an idea of what type of fitted kitchens you want in your home it’s time to talk about its functionality and everyday practicality.

Try to see what style of appliances you’re attracted to. There are different types of fridges, some look like stand-alone designer pieces and cookers that are either contemporary or more traditional such as AGA cookers. All of these details will determine the style of your kitchen cabinets and whether you’ll want to hide them or not. The type of appliances you will use can turn an Irish kitchen into a contemporary or a traditional space.

Did you know that if your kitchen is small and you have additional appliances that are only used on occasion, you can store them in an under stairs storage area? The stairs are normally close to the kitchen making it easily accessible.

Fitted Kitchens

Even beautifully designed fitted kitchens become hearty places only when they're styled to feel inviting and lived-in. There are different ways of achieving a cosy look with colours, textures and styling.

It’s the colours that make fitted kitchens look traditional and classic. Neutral greys and whites never get old. These colours create an easy canvas for styling.

Classic kitchens will always include natural materials like marble worktops and wooden floors. These materials don’t age. Pay attention to white stone and ceramics with white colours. You can also use wood wall panelling behind the counter with a tile pattern to recreate the feeling.

Bespoke Kitchen Design Dublin

We’ve been doing kitchen design Dublin for enough time to know that small kitchens are harder to furnish. But small doesn’t have to mean dull. Let’s break it down and see how you can design a small space and make it feel roomy. You can always apply the same principles while designing a bigger kitchen.

During your planning stage, you have to be taking into account everything you’ll be using.

Try to imagine how often you’ll be using the appliances. Look around and plan where you will store those items. As mentioned above you don’t need to store all the items in the kitchen, you can use under the stairs storage to avoid the clutter.

Having a bespoke kitchen design in Dublin in a small space try to avoid solid blocks of cabinets. Diluting cabinets with open shelving and glass doors is the best way to create an uncluttered and an airy feeling.

Having some open shelving it’s important to limit the number of items you use. If you’ve too many items on display it can make the room look smaller. The team from Design Studio McGee shows a few tips on how to style a small kitchen in this article: 6 Tips For Small Kitchen Design.

Sticking to a simple colour scheme will make the space look larger. Choose white or bright bespoke cabinets over dark ones to create a sense of a big bright room. It is the light that makes a place look big and the more light you have the easier it is to expand the kitchen design.

Bespoke Kitchen Cabinets

The light will bounce off reflective surfaces, which is why some people design their kitchen cabinets in a semi-gloss finish. Try to install light fixtures to illuminate the room in the evenings. One of the best things you can do for your glass cabinets is to install the light inside of them. It’ll create a sense of depth.

With bespoke kitchens big and small you should use the entire height of the ceiling to maximize the space. Work with your designer! Ensure that you’re not overwhelming the kitchen with tall blocks of cabinets. Break them up with different types of shelving.
