If you’re thinking about buying a new kitchen, you don’t want one that’ll be looking shabby in five years. German kitchens, such as Kuhlmann Kitchens, are a byword for high quality, but they don’t generally come cheap. So how do Kuhlmann Kitchens compare in price and quality with other German kitchen brands?
How do Kuhlmann Kitchens compare in quality with other German brands?
German kitchens are built to a very high quality across the board and are fairly uniform in those terms. In our opinion, there isn’t much difference in quality between Kuhlmann Kitchens and most of the other German brands such as Leicht, Hacker, Schuller, Pronorm, Nolte etc. Any of these brands will last for a minimum of fifteen years before you’ll need to think about replacement.
This is because German kitchen brands all use very high-quality materials to build their kitchens. For example, they use superior quality painted & lacquered doors, which resist peeling. By contrast, the kitchens you’ll get from the big chains & trade only suppliers use lower quality wrapped-type doors. These are the type that start to peel after a few years.
In the same way, the big chains & trade only suppliers use low-density chipboard to make their carcasses. The problem with low density chipboard is it soon starts to bow under the weight of the worktops. The high-density chipboard used by Kuhlmann Kitchens and other German brands will never bow, even under the weight of the heaveist granite, quartz or Corian worktops.
How do Kuhlmann Kitchens compare in price with other brands?
Just as German kitchens tend to be of similar quality, in our opinion, they’re also similar in price. Most, including Kuhlmann Kitchens, aren’t particularly cheap. After all, you expect to pay for this kind of quality, but it could put a German kitchen beyond some budgets.
However, this doesn’t apply to all German kitchen brands. There are some brands which cost up to 40% less than Kuhlmann &, in our opinion, are just as good quality.
To put that into perspective, imagine you’re buying an typical good sized kitchen with around twenty-five units. 40% cheaper would mean that you’d be making a saving of around £5,000. And you’d still be getting a high-quality German kitchen that’s built to last.
