Bespoke design; The power of personalisation

Rachel Usher Interior Design - Bespoke Interior Design

The value within bespoke design is often underestimated.

It’s a process commonly associated with kitchens or bathrooms only, a limited view in our opinion which dismisses the true power of personalisation.

When crafted with care bespoke design can add enormous amounts of value, not just in aesthetic appeal but to how a space feels to interact with on a daily basis. There’s a widespread tendency to define bespoke interiors as only the larger, often more expensive elements within a space and it’s easy to ignore the little things, such as handles or switches, despite the fact most of us connect with these smaller details on more than a daily basis.  

Every individual element within a space should speak to us positively on a sensual level. The depth and quality of a design is most tangible when we come into physical contact with it and so influential touch-points such as handles or fabrics are extremely significant.

Carefully selected bespoke finishes provide both purpose and pleasure, incorporating high quality craftsmanship which bestows us with confidence, knowing each piece will last a lifetime as intended. As a design approach we’re allowed the freedom to create in a unique way which ensures all designs are truly reflective of the clients needs and aspirations.

Limitations are a construct and when design is approached in this way inevitably compromises are made. When faced with a design dilemma the most successful solutions to a problem are often found through utilising a bespoke approach, avoiding compromise and transforming an element previously regarded as a pain-point into a positive piece of the overall scheme.

Approaching a design through bespoke solutions removes all of the boundaries that would otherwise limit our creativity, allowing us the freedom to create truly considered interior designs which are unique, make the most from the architectural space and enhance the overall emotional experience.

A bespoke approach can be utilised anywhere, finishes, lighting, cabinetry and furniture are all worth investing in as when truly considered each will improve how a space feels to interact with.

Visually, creating unique bespoke designs subsequently forms a piece of art which you're able to interact with on a personal level. Art as a term may be subjective but is defined as "An expression of creative skill and imagination, produced to be appreciated primarily for its beauty or emotional power" - important qualities afforded by the adaptability and personal nature of bespoke. Just like artworks in gallery, bespoke design is there to be appreciated but when applied within a living or functional space the impact these pieces have is much more fluid. We're able to connect on a much deeper level, most due to familiarity, noticing every seamless detail; another reason why high quality craftsmanship is so important. 

There’s nothing like sitting back, relaxing and observing pieces which are truly bespoke. Letting your mind wander over each beautifully crafted edge, join or seamless finish.

Bespoke design is by nature precise, crafted to exact specifications and considers the finest details, whether that be how the piece sits within the architectural space or most importantly; how the piece integrates with a clients lifestyle.

Crafting individual designs which seamlessly flow within a space requires technical expertise, functional planning and tailored creative solutions; skills our studio team are both knowledgable and experienced in executing.  If you're currently thinking about working with an interior designer and are interested in residential or commercial design services, take a look at a our design service experience guide, or get in touch with the studio directly.
