'Complete the look' - with the Kutchenhaus furniture range
The king of the German kitchen world Kutchenhaus, has announced that it will now design and manufacture any type of high quality furniture to further enhance its vast kitchen portfolio. Sparked by the trend for open-plan living, Kutchenhaus will now manufacture items like work spaces, media centres, dining room tables, drinks bars and dressers to accompany all its kitchen ranges, to ensure that the company can 'complete the look' for its customers.
Open-plan living is now one of the most sought-after concepts for UK homes, so Kutchenhaus wants to ensure that it offers 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.
Kutchenhaus furniture is made to extremely high standards in the company's 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, Kutchenhaus can make it...
As part of the furniture range, all of the Kutchenhaus kitchen worktops can now be made into any table shape, so customers can enjoy choosing a worktop which can be used in the kitchen as well as in the area used for sitting and entertaining.
"The buzz phrases are still very much 'family kitchen', 'kitchen dining' and 'kitchen living," comments Norman Parker Kutchenhaus Managing Director. "They all mean the same thing - a room where the cook or host is no longer serving a sentence in solitary confinement; but is instead 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 his or her thing. Kitchen walls are tumbling all over Britain, opening the kitchen up to dining rooms, living rooms, drawing rooms and even studies.
"Here at Kutchenhaus we offer our customers complete flexibility when it comes to their kitchen spaces. 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 Kutchenhaus has introduced its own furniture into all its 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 Kutchenhaus furniture range is available in any door front from the 2011 collection and any shape or design can be made bespoke to customer's requirements. Delivery is 8 - 10 weeks and like all Kutchenhaus designs, the furniture will be delivered rigid built (not flat-packed, but glued and doweled) to your door, straight from the factory in Germany.
