Top 10 kitchen manufacturers according to KitchenDecorium.ru

The average price of a kitchen set, excluding equipment, is 200 thousand rubles, and its service life can be 10-25 years. Agree, you need to choose such furniture and its manufacturer according to the principle “compare seven times, buy once”.

  • Moreover, the process of making a kitchen is multi-stage and complex. At each stage, mistakes may occur, if only due to the human factor: the designer did not take into account the detail, the measurer underestimated the curvature of the walls, the warehouse worker missed the marriage, the assembler drilled an extra hole … Even the smallest miscalculation can result in delays in terms of time and additional expenses.

To make such errors as few as possible, the factory should have the most automated production, an established logistics system and staff training. Which company should you entrust the manufacture of your kitchen? So, without further ado, we present a rating of the 10 best manufacturers of kitchen sets of low and medium price categories..

Top 10 kitchen manufacturers

1. IKEA (Sweden)

The kitchens of this Swedish manufacturer are popular all over the world and there are at least 7 reasons for this:

  • Simple yet stylish design of facades as in the traditional, so and in a modern style.

Ikea kitchen

  • Ikea equips kitchen furniture with quality Blum fittings;
  • Ikea uses only environmentally friendly types of chipboard and MDF;
  • The warranty period for kitchens from Ikea is 25 years;
  • The ability to independently and for free design a kitchen in the online planner on the store’s website, and then correct it together with a specialist;
  • Possibility of local replacement of facades in case of damage or simply if you want to update the design, say, in a few years.

Consider the cons:

  • Despite the long warranty period, the actual service life of kitchens from Ikea is often short and is only 7-10 years. Some users in their reviews report that chipboard swells after 3 years;
  • The choice of facades, firstly, is limited in colors and design, and secondly, it is minimalistic, which is not to everyone’s liking. In addition, the interior of the kitchen with a set from Ikea can hardly claim to be unique;
  • Ikea Kitchens
  • Ikea Kitchens
  • Ikea Kitchens
  • The dimensions of the Ikea headset modules are standard, so it is not always possible to perfectly fit the headset to the room and squeeze the maximum out of it.

7. Aran Cucine (Italy)

Italian cuisines are appreciated all over the world for their quality and design. In Russia, kitchens from Italy are most often positioned as premium furniture (sometimes it is unjustified, since the high price is often formed only due to the cost of delivery and dealer mark-up), but the Aran brand is an exception. The average cost of one headset is from 2,700 Euro, which is comparable to the prices of the domestic “Maria” or “Stylish kitchens”. Aran Cucine brand was founded in 1960.

Pros:

  • The Aran factory, unlike other European companies, supplies its kitchens disassembled, which greatly reduces the cost of delivery from Italy. Against the backdrop of the growth of the euro, this factor is becoming especially relevant for Russians;
  • European quality;
  • Excellent design of kitchens, not only classic, but also modern;

Minuses:

  • Delivery of the disassembled frame is, on the one hand, a plus (the client saves on delivery), and on the other hand, a minus: glued prefabricated frames are of better quality and more durable;
  • When buying a kitchen from Italy, you will have to put up with an increased delivery time, overpayment due to the growth of the euro, as well as dealer markups and duties.

The secret of Haecker’s success: the factory adapts technological and design solutions from elite German manufacturers to the mass market. The slogan of this brand: “Kitchens for everyone”.

  • Large selection of designs.

Minuses:

General recommendations

  • Which cuisines are better – Russian or European? Furniture of domestic manufacturers is good because it is adapted for small rooms and is focused on the implementation of individual projects. In addition, it is more affordable (especially against the backdrop of the growth of the dollar and euro) and at the same time is comparable in quality with the furniture of European factories. Moreover, most large manufacturers work on Italian / German equipment, use their own technologies, materials and accessories, imitate the “Europeans” in design.
  • When choosing a kitchen, ask about the manufacturer of the fittings and the warranty period for it. Good hinges are designed for at least 80-100 thousand open-close cycles.
  • Feeling that the designer is not competent and attentive enough? In this case, it is worth changing either the designer or the manufacturer, since the kitchen design stage is almost the most important and the probability of errors must be minimized..
  • It is worth buying a kitchen, if possible, in a company, not a dealer / franchise showroom, or at least from an official sales representative..
  • When choosing a kitchen manufacturer, do not hesitate to ask that the assemblers are full-time employees of the company who have undergone uniform training and certification..
  • To minimize the likelihood of mistakes in a design project, it is advisable to get a good grip: study the principles of kitchen planning and estimate the layout options yourself, for example, in our free online constructor.
