The Kitchen Journey

PLANNING A POGGENPOHL KITCHEN

Poggenpohl aims to make creating a kitchen a joyful experience. After all, it’s one of the most important rooms in a home, the place where the family gathers and the shared pleasure of dining begins. The Poggenpohl journey from inspiration to the finished kitchen is designed to ensure that customers get the perfect kitchen for their needs. Our lifetime’s support means that it will continue to be so for decades to come.

1 Inspiration

Every Poggenpohl kitchen is created to fulfil the vision and requirements of an individual client. And while some customers know exactly what they’re looking for, others find it useful to start by defining their favoured styles and designs via inspiring images of completed kitchens. The website includes examples of Poggenpohl kitchen projects created for customers around the world, which can be saved to the My Poggenpohl part of the site. Customers can also upload other website images to their My Poggenpohl folder.

Poggenpohl produces a print catalogue where customers can browse through examples of our ranges, including +MODO, +ARTESIO, +SEGMENTO, +EDITION and the Porsche Design Kitchen. From there the next step is usually to visit a Poggenpohl studio to experience real kitchens and see the wide range of materials, handles and designs that are available. During their visit the Poggenpohl designer can get a sense of the customer’s preferences and the project parameters. If preferred, the customer can share their My Poggenpohl folder images ahead of the meeting, to make it as productive as possible.

2 Measurement and planning

After the first meeting, the Poggenpohl designer will begin to develop outline ideas. These can be shared via the client’s private folder on My Poggenpohl within the Poggenpohl website where designer and client can collaborate on ideas. Poggenpohl designers are specialists in interior planning and take a holistic approach to the process of design, taking into account the client needs as well as the possibilities of the space. Understanding the shape and layout of a home with the kitchen at its core is fundamental to producing a kitchen design that will satisfy a customer’s needs – and of course, Poggenpohl kitchens are made to measure so that every centimetre of space is used. The home survey will also take into account important parameters such as electricity supply, plumbing and drainage. It is the foundation to a kitchen that not only looks wonderful but that is also a pleasure to use.

3 Customised design

The process of choosing the Poggenpohl design, layout, equipment, colours, materials and finishes is part of the pleasure of ownership. Design details also make a big difference to the ease of use a customer will experience with their kitchen, right down to the accessories that maximise drawer and cabinet functionality. Efficient, accessible storage of cutlery, crockery, cooking tools and food is at the core of a good kitchen design, and Poggenpohl designers have the training and experience to make the best use of the available space using the full potential of the Poggenpohl range of accessories. As part of the Poggenpohl service, the designer will create 3D drawings of the kitchen designs for the client to review. My Poggenpohl is a private part of the Poggenpohl.com website where a customer’s project is logged. Using it, both customer and designer can continue the process of design and evaluation from mood board to finished design.

4 Ordering and installation

Once every aspect of the kitchen has been agreed, full and accurate specifications are sent to the Poggenpohl factory in Herford, Germany. Every kitchen we make is bespoke and every kitchen is built at the factory to ensure absolute accuracy to the plan. In most cases Poggenpohl will then handle every aspect of the installation from design to final handover. However Poggenpohl can also work with client-appointed installers if desired.

5 A Lifetime of Service

Every Poggenpohl kitchen is built to exacting standards to give the owner a lifetime of service. Every Poggenpohl kitchen owner can also count on a lifetime of support. To facilitate this, every customer receives a personalised service card which links to the stored specification for their kitchen. This information can also be saved to My Poggenpohl for the customer’s future use. Poggenpohl provides a lifetime of service support for every kitchen they make.
