German kitchens came to the fore in the 1920s. Before that, the more traditional styles of Shaker and In-Frame kitchens were popular across Europe. Although these quality kitchens were visually appealing, manufacturing techniques were moving on, and it wasn’t long before brands like Alno and Leicht started popping up in Germany. These were among the first brands to start manufacturing modern, handleless kitchens that are now at the height of popularity.
Fabulously functional, Our Alno and Leicht kitchens are made with high quality materials and are manufactured to precise standards. Cabinetry is produced with precision and constructed with craftsmanship in the time honoured method of the glued and dowelled carcase. Drawer load capacities of 80kg are de riguer, meaning that your kitchen is set up to cope with the heavy usage of day to day life.
In the manufacturing centres, state of the art machinery sits side by side with time-served craftsmen, hand making and finishing elements of each made-to-measure kitchen. Due to the combination of state of the art machinery to produce the standard items such as the carcase pieces, and hand making for the more individual elements, your kitchen demonstrates truly great value for money.
Each kitchen is bespoke and made to order from the carcase to the doors, with designs tailored to your unique requirements. Cabinets are available in a huge range of both standard & customized sizes. These qualities enable us to design a kitchen that is true to the vision rather than planning a kitchen where the units available dictate the layout and style.
Cabinet height, width and depth can be adapted individually to suit the proportions of your kitchen space, design and you yourself. Eye-level ovens can truly be eye-level whatever your height! The range of size options together with customization ensures that your kitchen design is never compromised in terms of aesthetics, function and quality compliance.
On first glance, a German kitchen can look as though it’s not as practical as, say, a traditional design. However, take a peek behind the exterior and a whole world of practicality is presented to you. Many German kitchens don’t use handles. The sleek, minimal approach gets rid of clutter like chunky handles and replaces them with a hidden method for opening and closing doors.
Firstly, many of the drawers use a Gola rail system, meaning although handles are absent, the drawers can still be operated easily. Some doors are opened with a simple push which operates an auto-open mechanism built into the hinges. Large drawers (which are popular with German designs) are incredibly functional and new innovations such as space towers give you a lot of storage space in a small footprint. A trip to our design studio near Cambridge would really help you to see many of the different options.
