Kitchen-diner tips and kitchen furniture design-solutions
The kings of the German kitchen world Kütchenhaus, have announced that they will now design and manufacture any type of high quality furniture to further enhance their vast kitchen portfolio. Sparked by the trend for open-plan living, Kütchenhaus will now manufacture items like work spaces, media centres, dining room tables, drinks bars and dressers to accompany all their kitchen ranges, to ensure they can ‘complete the look’ for their customers.
Create a seamless living-space
Open-plan living is now one of the most sought-after concepts for UK homes, so Kütchenhaus therefore want to ensure that they offer customers a complete design solution and not just a kitchen. When a number of rooms suddenly become one, the furniture is just as important as the kitchen in creating a finished room which exudes style.
Kütchenhaus furniture is made to extremely high standards in their factories in Germany and is of equal luxury to designer brand furniture, yet at a fraction of the price, with a contemporary floor to ceiling shelving unit priced from around £500 for example.
If you can draw it, Kütchenhaus can make it
As part of the furniture range, all of the Kütchenhaus kitchen worktops can now be made into any table shape, so customers can enjoy choosing a worktop which can be used in the kitchen but also in the area used for sitting and entertaining too.
Norman Parker Kütchenhaus Managing Director said: “The buzz phrases are still very much ‘family kitchen’, ‘kitchen dining’ and ‘kitchen living’. They all mean the same thing, a room where the cook or host is no longer serving a sentence in solitary confinement; instead they are enjoying being part of the family, making cooking a social and enjoyable occasion.
“All of this means that there needs to be space where friends and family can relax while the cook does their thing. Kitchen walls are tumbling all over Britain, opening the kitchen up to dining rooms, living rooms, drawing rooms and even studies.
“Here at Kütchenhaus we offer our customers complete flexibility when it comes to their kitchen space. We like to say, ‘if you can draw it, we can make it!’ and very often people will choose to incorporate an additional area to their kitchen design, perhaps even two, as it will clearly improve the way they interact in their home.”
Very recently Kütchenhaus have introduced their own furniture into all their lifestyle room sets in-store and the response has been phenomenal. So much so, that figures show that one in three customers now order some sort of furniture with their kitchen as the end-results are stylish and affordable.
The Kütchenhaus furniture range is available in any door front from their 2011 collection and any shape or design can be made bespoke to customer’s requirements. Delivery is 8-10 weeks and like all Kütchenhaus designs, the furniture will be delivered rigid built (not flat-packed, but glued and doweled) to your door, straight from the factory in Germany.
