The short answer to how much your kitchen will cost is that we will accommodate your budget by matching you with the right kitchen to fit your needs at any price point.
One of the main advantages of our company is our price flexibility. We are one of the first kitchen design companies in America that sells modern European kitchens starting at a mid-range price point. Previously, these kitchens were only available on the high end of the market.
Our manufacturers offer a wide array of cabinetry and accessories, and we have the right product at every price. Leicht and GKC each have nine different price groupings that represent the different kinds of styles and finishes. Additionally, you can value engineer your kitchen design based on various other options. For instance, different types of lighting, choices of accessories, specialized hardware and more.
The German Kitchen Center will work with you throughout the design process to give you a clear understanding of how each dollar is being spent.
The kitchen remodeling process consists of the following steps:
This kitchen design and installation process could be completed in a few months or could take a year or two depending on the circumstances and designs of each kitchen.
Nailing down the initial design could take a matter of days.
Afterwards, there are a few stages of touch up, reclamation and finalization of the kitchen.
European Kitchens are steps up from American kitchens in virtually every category from ergonomics to technology to appearance. This is because European Kitchen designers approach kitchen design from a similar mindset to how they approach heavy industry. Germany is world-renowned for the precision of its mechanical designs and automotive brands like BMW, Mercedes and Audi are sought after for these reasons. The German approach to Kitchen design is no less advanced or precise. In fact, the factory equipment used to make German cars are produced by the same factories that create the machines that produce German cars. German auto manufacturers have model years and so too do German kitchen designers. So anticipated and celebrated are German kitchen designs in their own country that German Kitchen designers launch their new lines at gala events at Opera houses.
German Kitchens are built to high specifications of quality control. Nobilia, for example, tests the strength of its kitchen cabinets against the toughest of circumstances.
That means that GKC simulated the use and abuse of their kitchen. They subject their cabinets to 80,000 cycles of use under extreme weight, far above the 20,000 or so actual uses expected from normal kitchen use over several decades. Because kitchens are subject to a lot of moisture, GKC literally submerges their cabinetry in water for 48 hours to see how well it can withstand wet conditions before approving a model.
American made-to-order cabinetry isn’t subject to such factory precise construction, nor is it tested so rigorously.
Typically, you can expect no less than a 100% return on your investment with a German kitchen installation. But because German Kitchens are so prized they can make a bigger difference for the value of your home and apartment because they cause a transformation in the overall look and feel and create more useable space with their efficiency. Not only can you get back several times what you spent on your kitchen, it can be the tipping point that actually sells your home.
