If you’re looking for quality in your new kitchen, it would make sense to try a French or German kitchen. German kitchens are a byword for quality, but in fact many French brands offer similar high quality. But which brand is best? For instance, how do Mobalpa Kitchens, a French brand, compare with other kitchens?
How do Mobalpa Kitchens compare in price with other brands?
Quality usually costs more, and this is certainly true of Mobalpa Kitchens. Compared with the kitchens you’ll find in the major high street chains, a Mobalpa kitchen will be substantially more expensive. The same is true in comparison with the kitchens your local builder can access from the trade-only suppliers.
On the other hand, Mobalpa Kitchens tend to cost about the same as most of the French and German brands. The price is very similar, for instance, to what you’d pay for Schmidt, Schuller, Hacker, Nolte or Leicht, among others.
However, not all French or German kitchens are as expensive. It’s possible to find German brands that cost up to 40% less than Mobalpa &, in our opinion, are just as good quality. To put this into context, for a good sized Mobalpa kitchen comprising say 25 units, a 40% saving on the units should equate to a saving of about £4,000 – £5,000. The problem, though, is to identify which brands these are, and who sells them.
How do Mobalpa Kitchens compare in quality with other brands?
Both French and German kitchens are generally very high quality, and Mobalpa Kitchens are no exception. In our opinion, there is very little difference from the quality you’ll find from Mobalpa, Schmidt, Schuller, Hacker, Nolte or Leicht. All these are built to last a minimum of 15-20 years. By contrast, those from the chains and trade-only suppliers typically last about five years.
There are various reasons for this. For one thing, Mobalpa and the others use high-density chipboard that resists bowing, unlike the chains’ low-density chipboard. Similarly, the high-quality lacquered doors used won’t peel like the foil, vinyl or PVC-wrapped doors used by the chains & trade-only suppliers.
If you buy a Mobalpa kitchen, then, you’ll get an excellent kitchen that will still look great after 15-20 years. However, you’ll be paying extra for it and, as we’ve seen, this isn’t necessary. You can buy a similar quality German kitchen for similar to what you’d pay at the chains or trade-only suppliers. But you have to know where to look.
And that’s where I come in. Having spent many years supplying independent showrooms throughout the country, I know which brands they sell & how much they sell them for. So, I’ll find you a showroom where you can buy a German kitchen that costs up to 40% less than a Mobalpa kitchen &, in our opinion, is just as good in quality.
