New Leicht kitchen designs attracted the crowds
One seemingly constantly busy stand at the show was that of Leicht, which was showcasing some smart new kitchens, but that didn't stop the company's PR specialist Fenella Taylor from taking us on a tour of the 60sq.m stand to talk us through the new designs, which were on three displays.
On display were the new 2014 Synthia-C/Ceres-C - a handleless kitchen that was shown in the new slightly textured, antique oak colour combined with new Alpine grey and an artic white island. The concentration of colour and material provided a calm, stylish look.
Classic-FS combined with Topos was also be displayed. This kitchen in a lacquered white and moor oak Topos veneer had a large island and tall wall units with pocket doors.
The third kitchen featured the new polymer glass front Vitrea which has lasered glass effect edges, chamfering and high durability. This is the first time this has been on display anywhere in the UK.
Other key Leicht concepts such as pocket doors, which cleverly hide away cupboards and the cookware centres and the Contino griprail handleless doors, were also there to delight the crowds.
"Leicht is undergoing a massive expansion and investment with a huge new production facility, showroom and training facilities in Germany and this is being reflected in the UK with Leicht kitchens far more available across the UK," explained Fenella.
"The demand for the contemporary, versatile and stylish kitchens in a huge range of finishes and colours at highly competitive rates has allowed Leicht to forge ahead in the market.
"Our aim was to increase the number of UK Leicht dealers even more after kbb Birmingham, and the way this show is going, it looks as if we'll easily achieve it."
