The British word “bespoke” is catching on in the US. We think that’s GREAT and here’s why…
How to say bespoke mean?
“Bespoke” means “ultra custom” in British design parlance. It was originally used in the context of clothing. Its use in the world of kitchen and bath design coincided with the growing notions of customers seeking out unique and personalized spaces. The word helps distinguish between something custom made and something truly ultra-custom made.
Custom made means there’s an overarching template and you get made-to-order units based on the dimensions, colors, materials and style you have in mind.
Bespoke is when you have a general idea – and maybe even a napkin sketch – of what you want, but it doesn’t exist anywhere…. not until a designer and craftspeople work together to create it. Your bespoke creation is truly one-of-a-kind.
The Rise of Bespoke Design in the US
The trend of bespoke design is on the rise, due in part to the popularity of home improvement shows and websites. They’ve exposed everyone to the wider range of design possibilities. Also, the rise of social media has made it easier for people to share their own custom designs with others, which have inspired others to do the same.
