What are German kitchens?
German kitchens are exactly what they sound like, they are kitchens that have been designed and manufactured in Germany by a German kitchen designer.

With years of experience, some of the oldest German kitchen designers date back centuries and over time, they have refined their kitchens so that they are now brilliant works of art that are a delight to use.

Why are German Kitchens so popular?
Kitchens from Germany, as we have discussed, are extremely popular and there are many reasons for this, here are some of the main benefits of buying a German kitchen:
The history of German kitchen designers: the history behind these German kitchen designers make buying a German kitchen very appealing. The oldest German kitchen brand, Poggenpohl, was established in 1892 by Friedemir Poggenpohl, this German kitchen designer is often considered to be the oldest kitchen designer in the world, though we cannot confirm this to be the case. Modern kitchen designs began in Germany and was influenced by Bauhaus and the Deutscher Werkbund (German Association of Craftsmen). In 1926 the company, the Frankfurt Kitchen, designed the first functional integrated kitchen and in 1960 SieMatic developed the first handleless kitchen. Throughout the years Germany has provided the world with innovative and functional kitchen designs, always being at the forefront of kitchen designing, which is why they have a sterling reputation for their cutting edge designs.
Continual improvement: German kitchen designers guarantee good prices on their kitchens, this, in turn, lets them to heavily invest in research. A large part of their revenue is reinvested back into research and production which supports German kitchen designers in design new and more kitchen ideas, as well as enhance their current ones.
Worldwide reputation: as we have touched on, German kitchens are now being sold worldwide. Most German kitchen designers started to export their kitchens in the 1950’s to 1960’s trading traditionally with the UK, France, Holland, Belgium, Austria and Switzerland before expanding this to include countries such as Russia, the US and China. The majority of German kitchen brands export their goods to up to 60 countries. With this, the ‘made in Germany’ badge has become something of a mark of high quality wherever you go.
An engineering background: German kitchen designers are renowned for their exceptional engineering which helps them to produce high quality, robust kitchens with integrated cutting edge technology. By using the latest engineering processes every kitchen from Germany is made to the same high standard.
Reliability: kitchens from Germany are almost always finished on time, meaning no delays for you.
