Cost of Bespoke Furniture

We are often asked about the cost of bespoke furniture and how it compares to shop bought items. Later we show specific costs of a selection of bespoke items that we designed and installed whilst carrying out home refurbishments in Bath and Bristol.

you may be surprised at how favourable is the cost of bespoke furniture when compared with equivalent retails products

You’ll see prices ranging from £500 for an upholstered footstool to £6200 for a TV wall unit. We also look at the cost of bespoke alcove units ranging from £900 to £1200, along with audio visual cabinets and other storage. Bespoke doesn’t necessarily mean expensive; our clients are often surprised at how competitive the cost of bespoke furniture can be – and it fits perfectly.

Where additional storage is needed, we design bespoke furniture as part of our standard interior design service. We have local joiners, cabinet makers, upholsterers and other trades to make and install our products. Please read more about our interior design and home refurbishments.

The advantage of bespoke storage is that it fits precisely; it also meets particular needs such as shelf spacing, cable management, and slots for access to sockets. We also incorporate lights and other features to make the furniture special.
