How to get a luxury German kitchen on a budget
Cheap, low-cost, or budget are not words you might immediately associate with a luxury German kitchen.
In fact, if you’re watching the pennies, you may have discounted the “luxury” option altogether.
But with some research and know-how, that dream German kitchen can really be yours – even if you’re working to a strict budget.
Why choose a German kitchen?
German engineering is well-known for its sleek craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology, and rigorous testing.
These standards are just as exacting when it comes to German kitchen design, so you can always expect a modern, well thought-out kitchen that not only stands the test of time but is custom-made to fit your space.
What better definition of “luxury” could there be?
Better still, when it comes to German kitchens, “luxury” doesn’t necessarily mean “expensive”. In fact, you might just be surprised at the range of affordable options available.
So, here’s how to start planning your own luxury German kitchen on a budget.
Know your budget
This may sound obvious, but it’s important that you know how much you’ve got to spend on your new kitchen.
While it is possible to get a fantastic, fully functional kitchen on just about any reasonable budget, you will need to understand your financial starting point to get the best kitchen for your needs.
Focus on key kitchen elements
Next, it’s time to allocate that budget. When it comes to your luxury German kitchen, what do you really have to have? Which areas could you compromise on?
Think about each separate component, starting with the cabinets, doors, worktops and appliances you’d like, to your ideal layout, lighting and fitting.
For example, if you choose lacquered doors with a gloss finish, they will be priced differently from standard melamine. Doors also tend to be more affordable than drawers.
(The great thing about German kitchens is that components you might presume to be indulgent add-ons – such as high-grade materials, and soft-close doors and drawers – are included as standard).
Do your research
Don’t dismiss that amazing kitchen, simply because you’ve assumed it’s out of your price range.
With so many cost-effective options available, it may be more accessible than you think.
Your research will help you sidestep all those ‘bargain’ kitchen offers that in reality, are anything but. For example, we don’t need to offer sales or discounts, because here at Ku Kitchens we will always quote the very best price for your kitchen, all year round.
Often, when compared to the ‘sale’ prices quoted by larger kitchen retailers, the prices we offer are the same – or even lower!
Don’t forget that checking customer reviews and feedback is also very important when it comes to choosing your new kitchen. No matter what your budget, could you really trust a company that has been rated poorly by their customers?
