When you’re buying a new kitchen, you need it to be made from the best materials, as well as constructed expertly. If you go to a showroom selling mid-to-high-end German or Italian kitchens, they’ll often sell FENIX kitchens. So what are the advantages and disadvantages of buying a FENIX kitchen?
Advantages of a FENIX kitchen:
Soft to the touch
The material is soft to the touch, much like a lacquered door — one of the better finishes.
Fenix kitchen doors are very durable. They are a lot more durable than lacquered kitchen doors. So, they’re highly resistant to scratches & almost impossible to chip.
In the unlikely even that do scratch a FENIX door, it’s self healing. So, to remove light scratches, all you need is place a cloth over the scratches and run an iron over it. The scratches then disappear.
Finger print proof
One of the nightmares of most dark coloured kitchens, particularly black kitchens, is fingerprints. Fortunately, FENIX kitchen doors are highly resistant against all fingerprints.
FENIX kitchen doors are also more hygienic than most alternatives. This is because they’re made out of a non-porous material, meaning that they tend not to harbour germs.
Can create a seamless finish with matching FENIX worktops
If you’re looking for a seamless finish, you can pair your FENIX kitchen with matching FENIX worktops.
A FENIX kitchen is going to be high quality, attractive and long lasting, but of course everything comes with disadvantages. These are as follows.
Most of the less expensive German & Italian brands don’t offer FENIX kitchens. Therefore, if you want a FENIX kitchen, you’ll have to buy it from one of the more expensive German or Italian brands.
Also, a FENIX kitchen will always cost more than a laminate or lacquered laminate kitchen. In most German & Italian ranges, FENIX kitchens are usually in price groups 4, 5 or 6. In contrast, laminate and lacquered laminate kitchens are usually in prices groups 1 or 2. Therefore, a FENIX kitchen will always cost at least 25% more than a laminate or lacquered laminate kitchen.
The other downside of FENIX doors is that sometimes the edging is visible. In contrast, if you go for a fully lacquered door with a rounded edge, you won’t see any edging.
Limited colour choice
While laminate, lacquered laminate & lacquered doors come in a wide variety of colours, FENIX kitchen doors usually have a much more limited palette. If none of the colours available are what you’re looking for, this could be a problem.
