european kitchen brands

Europeans have been producing kitchens, in factories (vs. carpenter’s shops) for about 100 years now.

The countries that have the largest amount of kitchen brands are: Italy and Germany. They probably produce about 90% of the kitchens sold in Europe. They also are the largest exporters of kitchens outside of Europe.  

You will also find some large kitchen factories in England, France, Denmark, Sweden, Spain and other European countries.

On the right side of the page are the European kitchen companies, by country. If you know a kitchen company, that is not listed, please contact us and will gladly add it.

  1. Hi – I’m looking at Poggenpohl, SieMatic and Dada, am still a bit far from getting pricing from a rep, and just wanted to make sure all are similar price points. Could you comment on quality and cost? Any similarly-priced brands you recommend above these? Thanks very much!

    • Zach – You’ll probably find they are all more or less at the same ball park.
      Not sure where you are located, for recommendations.

  2. Hi, we are from India and planning for a modular kitchen for our new home. We are confused between Alno and Veneta cucine, in terms of quality. Any suggestions on the better one? Any other good brand, if you can suggest? Thanks!

    I live in Aruba and have limited choice of kitchens: Alno, Venetta Cucuine, Berloni.
    Can you please rank these by quality- to give me some guidance.

  4. Hi,
    I’m looking for comparison of Euromobil between Salvarani, Composit and Arrital. Trying to understand the level of Euromobil in general, as never saw their kitchens.

    Thank you for your comments!

    • Vahe – they are better than the other 3.

      • Thank you for comment!
        I’ve thought that Salvarani similar to Poggenpohl and Boffi, Composit a bit lower and Arrital a bit lower. Does it mean that Euromobil kind of hi-end?

  5. Hi
    Can any one pls advise what is the better quality nobilia or nolte and what is the cheaper also?

  6. Hi, I’m looking for advise, What kitchen is better Arrital or Miton? Thanks for your advise!

  7. Hi again,
    I’ve just find out one more interested kitchen manufacturer – Spagnol
    Could you please compare it again with Arrital, Composit and Salvarani

    Thank you!

    • Vahe – Spagnol is a group, manufacturing furniture, office furniture, as well as kitchens. They are a price-point product, lower than the other 3.

  8. Regarding the Lil question:
    As I know Arrital is more advanced with finishes variety (for example – fenix, micro cement, paperstone) comparing to Miton. Am I right?

  9. Would be grateful for some advice as I am choosing between a Hacker (Classic) or Rotpunkt kitchen. Which is better?

    Thanks.

  10. Dear Kitchenguy. You are the light at the end of the tunnel. Just started kitchen design process and completely overwhelmed. I live in Chicago and considering the following manufacturers, except I have no idea how the differ from one another. Could you guide me on ranking them on quality and price?
    Poggenpohl
    Bulthaup
    Leicht
    Poliform
    Arrital
    Ernesto Meda
    Snadeiro
    Arclinea
    Siematic
    Boffi

    Thanks a lot!

    • yuleika – glad I could be the light (hopefully an LED :))…
      From your list, Bulthaup, and Boffi at the top (price wise as well), Poggenpohl, Poliform, Snaidero, Arclinea and SieMatic are second. Leicht, Ernestomead & Arrital in the 3rd group.

  11. Many thanks – I appreciate your response.

  12. Hello again kitchenguy,

    What do you think of Eggersmann kitchens quality? Their showroom is under construction and supplier claims that the brand is in the same quality level as Bulthaup.

    Where do you rank Eggersmann in terms of quality/price ratio vs Bulthaup, Siematic, Hacker, and Alno?

    For a kitchen that will use mostly white exterior cabinets, will you recommend something like Bulthaup using laminate finish or Alno with lacquer finish?

    I’m guessing price between the two might be close since it’s comparing a “higher” brand using less expensive finish vs a “less premium” brand using more expensive finish.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!

    • Jacob – Eggersman is a fine product. I would go as far as comparing them to Bulthaup because a) they are not quite as good and b) they are a different kind of product. But they are close.
      They are probably more like SieMatic and haecker’s higher end line. Alno is a couple of steps down.
      I’ll take Bulthaup using laminate finish over Alno with lacquer finish.

    Hi kitchenguy!
    We’re building a modern home in Houston, TX. We’re entertaining Poggenpohl and Eggersmann as they both have showrooms here. We like a few options at each place and are in the process of obtaining quotes. How do you compare these 2 brands? Would you suggest also looking at Pedini? They have a showroom in Houston but we haven’t seen it because our designer favors German cabinets (esp Eggersmann). Thank you for your help!

    • kinni desai – all 3 are great products and are high quality. I think you’ll find a difference in pricing though. As far as Pedini’s concerned – they are using the same brand and/or quality hardware (drawers hinges, etc.) as the other two. The doors & drawers, are made by the same suppliers and the machines they all use is identical. So, as you can see, these days, there is no difference between Italian and German kitchens, as long as they are of the same level, which these are.
      My suggestion – visit Pedini.

  14. Hi,

    How is the quality of Bauformat kitchens?
    How does it rate compared to other kitchens in the same price group?

    How does it compare to slightly more expensive brands like Häckler, Nolte and Störmer, or even Leicht – both price wise and quality wise.
    Is the extra price justified by the improved quality?
    And if so, how does the extra quality show in the product?

    If I am on a budget, what would be the brand of choice I should go for?

    • Nick – lots of questions… Here are the answers:
      How is the quality of Bauformat kitchens? Low-medium. Its a price driven product.
      How does it rate compared to other kitchens in the same price group? Similar.
      How does it compare to slightly more expensive brands like Häckler, Nolte and Störmer, or even Leicht – both price wise and quality wise. They are better.
      Is the extra price justified by the improved quality? Yes.
      And if so, how does the extra quality show in the product? Many ways – both in terms of the products specs, as well as the way it’s put together, all the way to service and after-care.

  15. Hi: how do you rank the following in term of quality and price
    1. Sachsen Kuchen
    2. Ballerina
    3. Schueller
    Thanks

    • Ed – they are similar. Focus on the designer and the dealership – they are just as importent!

    Hi Kitchen guy,
    We are having a tough time deciding on which kitchen.We have seen Leicht in a very glitzy showroom.it looks great but is expensive.We have seen Neptune and Nobilia in a less flashy setting and they are cheaper but we are not sure about the quality. Any views welcome?
    Also we have the potential to source appliances and work tops separately at favourable rates but are worried we end up with too many tradesmen and no accountability.thoughts on that also welcome.
    Thanks a lot for any help you can give.
    James

    • James Barbour – Leicht is a better product, so its not just the showroom…
      Not sure how they would work with your appliances, so I cant comment on that.
