The Poggenpohl Difference

Poggenpohl has been making kitchens since 1892 – and the company has never stopped looking for ways to improve the kitchen environment and make it more of a pleasure to live with. Every Poggenpohl kitchen can truly be called unique, from its custom-made dimensions and distinctive design to the quality of workmanship that goes into every cabinet.

Built to Last

A Poggenpohl kitchen is an investment in a lifetime's enjoyment. We take the trouble to use the best possible quality of materials and components, and all our cabinets and units are assembled at the Poggenpohl factory in Herford, Germany.

Poggenpohl Craftsmanship - Passionate Craftsmanship

The Craftsmanship Ethos

At the Poggenpohl factory in Herford, we combine the best of modern technology with hand craftsmanship. Our world-famous mirror-gloss lacquer surface, for example, is sanded by hand to achieve that famous flawless finish. The men and women who work at Poggenpohl take pride in their craft skills. Many have been at Poggenpohl for their entire working lives and pass on their skills to the next generation through our long-established apprenticeship programme.

It's All in the Detail

The closer you look, the more you'll discover Poggenpohl's close attention to every detail. Take our drawers – we put long-lasting roller-bearing runners beneath the drawer, not at the side. Each drawer offers maximum space – and glides in and out effortlessly for year after year. Our hinges are adjustable in three planes to allow each door to be perfectly aligned. High-strength metal and a thicker pivot pin mean that they'll stand up to a lifetime's use.

A Lifetime of Service

When a Poggenpohl kitchen is handed over to its owner, they also receive a personalised service card that is the key to a lifetime of service and support. Poggenpohl retains every detail of its kitchens so that any additions the owner may require as their needs change can be perfectly matched.

Designed for You

Each Poggenpohl kitchen is made to order – so it's a true reflection of the needs, tastes and personality of each owner. From the way they like to cook to their favoured colours, finishes and materials, a Poggenpohl kitchen is designed and crafted for the individual.

Innovation Today and Tomorrow

Our founder set himself the task to 'improve the kitchen'. And we've done precisely that for over 120 years. Almost a century ago Poggenpohl pioneered the concept of the kitchen as a living space with room to relax or entertain your guests; the centre of the home rather than just a place in which to cook. A later Poggenpohl innovation, the kitchen island, revolutionised the way that people used their kitchen space, making it the home's natural focus. Today, Poggenpohl's designs continue to anticipate the way people want to live and interact within the home. Working with some of the world's leading architects and design groups, Poggenpohl's visionary designs and innovative concepts set the agenda for tomorrow.
