9 Top Quality German Kitchen Brands

Germany is famous for its engineering quality, design and heritage – and that goes for kitchens too. A large number of precision built kitchen systems are manufactured in Germany, many by century-old enterprises who still adhere to the same techniques and craftsmanship as they did back in the days of their founders.

German kitchen design is at its best when it comes to contemporary style. If you’re after a sleek, handle-less kitchen in high gloss or flat matt, there’s a wealth of choice across all price points.  Another important feature of German kitchens is their focus on ergonomic design. Made with comfort and ease of use in mind, these kitchens offer clever storage solutions and adjustable heights for any user.

With so much flexibility and adaptability on offer, and with the sheer choice in cabinet sizes and fittings suitable for all surroundings, there’s a perfect German kitchen out there for everyone. A variety of premium German kitchen brands are now easily available from UK based kitchen designers and suppliers who can add their own design expertise to create and install stunning results for homes large and small.
