You’ll want the best you can afford in a new kitchen, and that often means a German kitchen. German kitchens are highly thought of for good reasons. So, how do Rotpunkt Kitchens compare to the alternatives?
How do Rotpunkt Kitchens compare to the high street chains and trade-only suppliers?
Most people looking for a new kitchen start off, at least, with the easiest route — the big high street chains. You can find them everywhere, and you know they’re the best because their advertisements say so. Or perhaps you might want to try the major trade-only suppliers, which your local builder could access.
These are certainly cheaper options than Rotpunkt, around 30% less. However, as so often, the price reflects the quality. The chains and trade suppliers tend to use low-quality doors, for instance, which start to peel quickly. Their carcasses, too, are made of less-dense chipboard and will soon start to bow.
The high-quality materials used in Rotpunkt Kitchens, on the other hand, will last far longer. The cheaper kitchen will be looking shabby after around five years. A Rotpunkt kitchen, on the other hand, should be good for at least fifteen years.
How do Rotpunkt Kitchens compare to other German kitchen brands?
The high quality found in Rotpunkt Kitchens tends to be the norm with German kitchen brands. They all use high-quality materials, and all are likely to last fifteen to twenty years in good condition.
Where the difference comes, though, is in their specifications. It’s in this respect that Rotpunkt Kitchens are, in our opinion, superior to many other German brands. For instance, they use 8mm-thick solid backs, rather than the 3mm thick hard board backs used by many other German brands.
They also offer far more choice of colour for the interiors of the carcasses. White is fine with a white door, but paired with a darker colour it can look a bit cheap. Where many brands only offer white interiors, Rotpunkt Kitchens offer 26 colours.
So how do they measure up in value? Like many German brands, they cost around 30% more than the chains and trade-only suppliers. However, considering that they’re likely to last at least three times longer, they’ll be cheaper in the long run.
Rotpunkt Kitchens won’t, in our opinion, last any longer than most other German brands. Considering the higher specifications, though — more bells and whistles — they may be a better option to go for.
