Leroy Merlin kitchens – buyer’s guide

The main advantage of Leroy Merlin kitchens is super low prices. Judge for yourself: the cheapest chipboard model of a straight 3-meter kitchen costs from 8 tr. (excluding equipment and plumbing) – this is a great option for a summer residence or rental housing. Also in Leroy Merlin, kitchens of a higher class are presented – beautiful and high-quality, but they are also relatively inexpensive – from 50 tr. for a 3-meter headset. In the conditional “Maria” or “Ikea”, a kitchen of the same size will cost at least 100 tr.

Leroy Merlin's kitchen

Large corner kitchen Leroy Merlin (model “Fans white” from MDF) with a worktop and an apron from the Obi store. In 2018, such a combination will cost 65-70 thousand rubles (excluding plumbing and equipment)

Such a tempting price both attracts and scares at the same time. Let’s find out if the saying “cheapskate pays twice” applies to the kitchens of the global retailer. And those who have already begun to look closely, we invite you to get ideas for design and consider a photo of Leroy Merlin kitchens in the interior.

Quick reference

Manufacture of components and furniture: Russia and China.

Warranty period: 25 years for kitchens under the Delinia trademark, for other headsets – 2 years.

Service life: 5 years (ready-made kitchens). We did not find information on the service life of the project kitchens, but the 25-year warranty period suggests that the set should last at least 10 years..

Pros:

In addition to affordability, Leroy Merlin kitchens have the following advantages:

  • Express purchase of furniture. You can take the details of the designed / finished headset home on the day of purchase. Thus, after 2-3 days, it can be completely assembled and ready to use. By the way, even if some components from your project are not in stock on the day of purchase, they can be delivered in just a week or ten days. In other factories, it takes an average of 2.5 months to make a kitchen.
  • Facades of decent quality – nice design, with even bevels and a good decorative layer. The range even includes facades with veneered facades made of oak, ash and pine.
  • 25-year warranty (for Delinia brand headsets). In this, the kitchens of Leroy Merlin outperform all domestic factories and correspond to the Swedish Ikea.
  • Easy to assemble (fasteners included), especially for flat walls and floors.
  • The ability to independently design a kitchen set online.

Advice

In order to spend as little time as possible on buying a kitchen, we advise you to go to the store, firstly, on weekdays (on weekends it is very difficult to get to a designer-designer), and secondly, with a project previously developed in the online planner on the Leroy Merlin website … In it you will be able to independently and leisurely think over the layout, “play” with the facades and handles, estimate the cost of the combination. Next, the store employee will find your project by number (the main thing is not to forget to write it down!), Finalize it and place an order.

Disadvantages:

  • The quality of laminated chipboard frames (both design and finished kitchens) leaves much to be desired.
  • Judging by the reviews, kitchen fittings (Indaux trademark) serve only 1-3 years. However, there are also positive responses to them..

Broken hinges Leroy Merlin

These Leroy Merlin loops served only a year, then the caps fell off at the mountings, while their “legs” remained in the facade. It is quite difficult to install new hinges in such a situation.

  • Often parts of the headset come across with defects. Fortunately, in most cases, defective parts can be replaced..
  • Expensive assembly. It is not performed by Leroy Merlin, but by the contractors of the store..

Advice

The assembly cost is 10% of the price. If you have one or two days off, a screwdriver / screwdriver and a jigsaw, then you can save a lot on assembly, because everyone can assemble the headset on their own.

  • To design a headset and complete its purchase, you first need to get to the designer-designer by appointment or after standing in a large queue.

Leroy Merlin project area

Kitchens are designed here

  • Project kitchens, although they imply adjusting the headset to the size and characteristics of the room, but still it is not always possible to do it perfectly, because the dimensions of the modules are standard.
  • The film of the housings is afraid of the heat of a preheated oven. To avoid its deformation and melting, we recommend purchasing an oven with blowing the outer walls..

Types of headsets: they are modular (ready-made) and project. Let’s take a closer look at both options..

About modular kitchens

These are ready-made direct kitchens that do not require design. All you need to do is assemble a set of lockers like a children’s construction set. Available in a total of 11 designs. The frame is made of laminated chipboard, facades – from laminated chipboard, MDF and MDF with veneer. Important bonuses:

  1. The ready-made combination can be ordered online on the website and seen with your own eyes in the store.
  2. For convenience, each cabinet / drawer is packed in a separate box with all accessories – hinges, handles, table top, etc..

By the way, about the countertop: please note that each cabinet has its own. When the set is completely assembled, the tabletops of the floor modules are connected with special strips (see photo below). Unfortunately, this complicates cleaning a little (dirt gets clogged in the gap) and increases the risk of chipboard swelling. Therefore, we recommend changing the “native” countertops for a single canvas made of a higher quality material..

One more tip. Leroy Merlin’s ready-made kitchens, in addition to the countertop, have two weak points:

  1. Hinges (they do not have closers and are not very reliable).
  2. Plastic legs (often they do not support the weight of the modules and their contents and break).

To extend the life of the kitchen, we recommend changing the “native” legs and hinges for better quality.

5 more tips for designing and choosing a Leroy Merlin kitchen

  1. Do you want to refine your budget kitchen so that no one will guess that it was bought in Leroy Merlin? Choose solid and stylish handles (maybe not in LM), install a quality countertop and baseboard. An apron is also of great importance in the perception of the kitchen. So, for example, this headset “Mais” in the photo below in combination with stylish hog tiles looks like it was bought in an Italian furniture showroom.

Also, the headset can be decorated with decor.

  1. Keep in mind that facades of the same model, but in different colors, can be combined with each other. For example, white facades “Fans” will go well with facades “Fans Mint”, and light facades “Frame” – with dark ones of the same series (see photo example below).

  1. If your kitchen is small and cramped, then, planning a corner set, it is better to make one of the sidewalls narrow – 35 cm deep, instead of the standard 60 cm. Unfortunately, there are no narrow floor cabinets in Leroy’s assortment … but there are hinged ones. If you buy legs and a plinth for such a module, you will just get a 35-centimeter cabinet that looks no different from the rest of the pedestals. The photo below shows an example of a “Nice” headset with such a tricky solution..

You can buy a project kitchen only in a hypermarket, the online store does not provide such an opportunity.

  1. To increase the quality and service life of the project kitchen, you can install better hinges with door closers or lift-and-tilt mechanisms, for example, from Blum or Hettich, instead of Leroy Merlin hinges. Leroy Merlin also has hinges with closers that make it easy to open, smoothly close and fix the doors in any position, but they are not very reliable.
  2. When purchasing a countertop in another store, keep in mind that the depth of the floor cabinets of Leroy Merlin headsets is not the standard 60 cm, but a little less – 56 cm.
