Is German Kitchen still a thing?
Much like German cars, appliances and even footballers, you will find the same precision, quality and attention to detail in all modern German-made kitchens.
Today, German kitchen styles are incredibly refined, ergonomic and minimalistic which is why German kitchens have been so dominant in the market timelessly.
To answer if German Kitchen is still a thing, it really depends on your needs.
Do you care for the environment?
Unlike some suppliers who get their material supply from various unknown sources, German kitchen manufacturers are certified in accordance with PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification Schemes). This certification documents their commitment to a livable environment and takes responsibility in handling precious wood resources.
Forest certification provides the guarantee that the wood products you purchase do not derive from questionable sources or over-exploitation, but rather originate from forests that are managed in harmony with nature.
Do you care for your health?
Generally after renovation, a high amount of air-borne chemical pollutants including volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formaldehyde are emitted from building products such as carpets, furniture and paint.
German kitchen manufacturers only use panel materials certified with the highest European standard of low formaldehyde emissions. Having met all award requirements, a German furniture will be awarded the highest emissions class of A by the Deutschen Gütegemeinschaft Möbel e.V. (German Association of Quality Furniture).
Do you care if your kitchen will last for at least 15 years?
German kitchen have gone through stress test designed for kitchens. Their proof of quality is in the quality control testing laboratory.
Furniture, components and materials must prove themselves fit for daily wear and tear through extensive testing in our own QC testing laboratory. Indeed, for 15 years worth of wear and tear. All materials used are tested for this minimum service life using machines over 60,000 load cycles.
Do you care if your kitchen edges are refined, safe and sealed perfectly?
If getting cut by rough edges from peeling laminate or frustrated by water seepage & leakage are getting on your nerves, it is time to reconsider your kitchen options.
It’s the details of craftsmanship that set German Kitchens apart. The carefully smoothen and hand-sanded finishing, creates a beautiful mirror-finish high gloss lacquer surface safe for your hands. The immaculate alignment of doors, drawers and worktops ensures top quality water-proofing. Matching traditional craftsmanship with the best of modern technology for a kitchen, ensures a kitchen that will be a pleasure to touch, use and work in.
If you do not care for all the points above, then a German Kitchen may not be a thing for you.
A beautiful looking kitchen can be crafted by anyone, but a real quality & functional kitchen just cannot be proven simply by claim or writing. It is proven & built from many years of heritage, tradition, technology testing & advancement, or in other words - Made-In-Germany.
