With more than 200 different kitchen fronts, one thing is particularly important to them: the fact that they are “green” – no matter what colour and finish you decide on.

The latest technology, exclusive finishes and precise work are absolutely essential to their customers and a matter of course for them.

  1. I have just had a Bauformat kitchen installed and I wouldn’t recommend ever buying a kitchen from this company. My kitchen arrived with doors that are not wide enough to cover the cabinets.

    The double cabinets produced by the factory are 90cm in width but the standard doors that they provide have been delivered at a width of 44.4cm each. This means that the doors together only cover 88.8cm of the width leaving them 12mm (nearly 1/2 an inch) short.

    Most manufacturers aim for a 3mm vertical gap (1/8th to 1/16th of an inch) between doors which would be 3mm in the middle and 1.5mm at either end so giving a total double door width of 90-0.6 = 89.4cm.

    This size of gap is easily achievable given that the hinges that Bauformat uses, allow almost no impingement on the spaces to the sides of the doors, so they can open when the next door is adjacent less than 0.5mm.

    So I now have massive gaps between the doors, and I can see the cabinet fronts underneath from a good distance. The company is insisting that the gaps are standard but as the hinges work in the way they do then the gaps they have created are unnecessary from a functional point of view, and the kitchen looks terrible because of it. The only person who benefits from such large gaps as I can see it would be the manufacturer who would save on door material costs. It makes me wonder if the company is struggling with solvency if they have to compromise the quality of their product so much.

    I was passed the details of the technical contact for the company however they have not bothered to respond which further demonstrates their disdain for the customer.

    I warn own your peril…
