  • All materials are safe, environmentally friendly and comply with the E1 formaldehyde emission class;
  • The ability to track the status of the order in the personal account on the factory website;
  • Good quality facades (made of MDF, chipboard, solid wood), body (made of moisture-resistant chipboard of the Austrian company Egger) and fittings;
  • The possibility of buying a kitchen on credit without overpayment (when buying on credit, the company gives a discount in the amount of bank interest on the loan);
  • Free offline design project (with the subsequent ordering of the kitchen), free calculation and online design project on the site;
  • Free metering;
  • More than 300 points of sale throughout Russia and the CIS. At the same time, prices in company and dealer showrooms differ slightly;
  • A user-friendly site, which at least speaks of the brand’s customer focus. On the factory’s portal, you can order a free kitchen design project, view the catalog and photos of completed projects, find out useful headset planning tips (by the way, very informative!) and, as we have already noted, track the status of the order in your personal account;
  • 10-year warranty, which is twice as long as that of all other domestic factories;
  • Profitable promotions. So, for example, at the time of this writing, the factory was offering a 20% discount on Bosch and Liebherr appliances, a tabletop as a gift, roof rails and lighting at special prices, etc .;
  • Judging by the feedback from users, excellent collectors work at “Maria”.

Minuses:

  • No free shipping and assembly. Delivery cost is 10% of the order value;
  • High prices;
  • There are manufacturing delays, sometimes very long;
  • In negative reviews, users complain that the company does not work well with complaints, resolving controversial issues, violates the terms of the contract for a penalty;
  • “Maria” produces tabletops from only two types of materials: from moisture-resistant laminated chipboard (Fab brand, Italy) and from Corian artificial stone of the DuPont brand (USA). By the way, Corian artificial stone is considered one of the best, and DuPont went down in history as the inventor of the world’s first artificial stone. However, if you want to install a natural stone, agglomerate or solid wood worktop, you will have to order it separately..

Buying Tips

  • Before going to the salon, we advise you to carefully study the catalog of Maria kitchens on the website, writing down the names of the models you like and paying attention to the layouts and shades. Also on the site it will be very useful to study the section “Buyers”.
  • Beforehand, it is worth ordering a design project and a calculation online, which does not oblige you to anything, but it helps a lot to imagine and think about a purchase, as well as come to the designer-designer in the salon prepared.
  • Free online kitchen designers will also help you prepare for the purchase of a headset, for example, on our website.
  • Want to save some money? You can order furniture handles from another company for a lower price..
  • Especially carefully you need to choose the color of the headset, because according to the RAL catalog you can choose any, even complex shades like gray-brown, olive or dove.
  • Always be interested in promotions and discounts – you can save a lot on them. In most cases, you can be given a discount without taking into account any promotions, if your intentions are serious (at least 5%).
  • If you want to buy a kitchen as inexpensively as possible, pay attention to sample headsets, which are often sold in the showrooms of “Maria”.
  • The designers at Maria are most often competent and professional. But if you feel that your designer is not attentive or works in bad faith, then we advise you not to take risks and try to “work” with another employee (for example, in another salon of “Maria”). Remember, the kitchen design stage is the most critical, even the smallest mistake in the drawing can turn into major problems..
