If you’re looking for a new kitchen, you’ll want quality, and some of the highest quality comes from German kitchens. The trouble is that quality can be expensive, so you’ll need to find a brand that balances price and quality. So, how do Pronorm Kitchens, a leading German brand, compare with other brands?
How do Pronorm Kitchens compare in price?
On the whole, when you buy a German kitchen you pay for the quality, and Pronorm Kitchens are no exception. If you compare it with other leading brands — e.g. Schuller, Nolte, Bauformat and Leicht — the price is similar. In fact, the same can be said for many German kitchen brands.
However, there are some German brands that cost up to 35% less than Pronorm &, in our opinion, are just as good quality. To put this into context. For a good sized Pronorm kitchen comprising say 25 units, a 35% saving on the units should equate to a saving of £4,000 -£5,000.
How do Pronorm Kitchens compare in quality?
German kitchens are a byword for quality, and that certainly includes Pronorm Kitchens. Compared with brands such as Schuller, Nolte, Bauformat and Leicht, it comes out about equal. There’s actually very little difference in quality between Pronorm Kitchens and other German brands.
There’s a good reason for this. Most German kitchen brands source their materials from the same German, Austrian and Italian suppliers. This means that the same high-quality doors, hinges and mechanisms go into their kitchens, regardless of brand.
The difference between German brands is largely in the ‘bells & whistles’. However, they all offer the same high quality, which is guaranteed to last a minimum of fifteen years.
How do Pronorm Kitchens compare in specification?
Pronorm is very similar in specification to many other German brands. So, for example, Pronorm kitchens offer 5mm thick hardboard backs & a white internal carcass.
However, their are some German brands that cost similar to Pronorm, but offer a much higher specification for the money. So, rather than having 3, 4 or 5mm thick hardboard backs, these German brands offer 8mm thick solid backs for enhanced strength & durability.
Also, rather than having just a white internal carcass, these brands offer a choice of up to 26 internal carcass colours. So, for example, if you were to choose a dark grey door, when you open the door, rather than being greeted by a white internal carcass, the inside of the unit would be dark grey to match the door. Having the internal carcass the same colour as the door gives a much more seamless look.
Do Pronorm Kitchens offer the best balance of price and quality?
There’s no doubt that if you go for a Pronorm kitchen, you’ll get a very high-quality kitchen. If you have a substantial enough budget that you don’t need to think about the price, well and good.
