If you’re after a German kitchen, there are plenty of brands on the market. So how do you go about choosing the one that offers the best balance of price, quality & spcification? If you’re looking at Leicht kitchens, how do they compare with the other popular German brands?
How do Leicht Kitchens compare in price?
In general, German kitchens don’t come at bargain prices. However, the prices for Leicht kitchens are comparable to brands such as Hacker, Schuller, Bauformat, Pronorm and Nolte. In terms of price, you could do worse.
However, there are some German brands on the market that are, in our opinion, just as good quality as Leicht, but cost as much as 35% less. To put this into context. For a good sized Leicht kitchen comprising say 25 units, a 35% saving on the units should equate to a saving of about £4,000 – £5,000.
The problem with this however, is two-fold. Firstly, you need to know which German brands these are & secondly, who the best value suppliers of them are. However, this is where we come in. We’ll point you in the direction of the best value suppliers of these brands. plus, our service is FREE.
How do Leicht Kitchens compare in quality?
The reality is there’s very little difference in quality between the major German brands, and Leicht Kitchens are no exception. They’re similar, for instance, to other German brands such as Hacker, Schuller, Bauformat, Pronorm and Nolte. They all produce high-quality kitchens that are built to last a very long time, and there’s a simple reason for this.
German kitchen brands tend to have the same high standards because they’re made from the same high quality components. Whether it’s the doors, the chipboard, the hinges or the other mechanisms, all the brands are pretty much the same. They all even buy the components from the same German, Austrian and Italian suppliers.
How do Leicht Kitchens compare in specification?
Quality is one thing, but specification is a slightly different matter. The quality of German kitchens is fairly constant. However specification, or, ‘the bells and whistles’ can differ.
Like many other German brands on the market, Leicht kitchens come with 3-4mm hardboard backs and one colour for carcass interiors – off white.
Most German kitchen brands are similar in terms of specification — but not all. Their are some German brands that cost similar to Leicht, but offer a much higher specification kitchen for the money. So, for example, some brands benefit from having 8mm solid backs rather than the standard 3 or 4mm hardboard backs. Some brands also offer a choice of up to 25 colours for the interiors of the carcasses rather than just white. This means you’ll usually be able to match the colour of the door you choose to the colour of the unit inside. Matching the colour of the door to the internal colour of the unit gives a much more seemless look. So, for example, if you’re having a dark grey door, it looks a lot nicer when you open the door & the colour of the unit inside is dark grey rather than white.
So, if you’re looking for a showroom who’ll offer you a German kitchen that costs up to 35% less than a Leicht kitchen &, in our opinion, is just as good quality, we can help. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a showroom who can offer you a German kitchen that costs similar to a Leicht Kitchen, but offers thicker backs or lots more internal carcass colours to choose from, we can also help.
