Do the Italians really do kitchen design best?

As a nation, we are very patriotic about buying British.

Synonymous with quality and craftsmanship, a kitchen that is manufactured here in the UK is assumed to be of a certain caliber. At Ray Munn Kitchens, we only supply quality British kitchens. However, more often than not, these kitchens are either painted, of a more classic door detail or both and this style isn’t to everyone’s taste.

When a contemporary kitchen with modern looks is required, we always look to our Italian kitchen ranges. Masters of design, the Italians really know how to make a modern kitchen ‘sing’!

Arredo 3 is our most popular choice of Italian kitchens. Coupled with sophisticated looks, they have a fabulous range of matte and gloss finishes, veneers and many colour options, not forgetting their lacquers and laminates!

But, it simply isn’t the finishes that make these kitchens so popular – it’s the way they aptly suit all house types. From Victorian and Edwardian properties to purpose built flats, our Italian kitchens and especially our Arredo 3 range just work.

The Italians’ attention to detail is second to none too!

Even the lighting is impressive! Neatly fitted to the underside of the wall units, it creates a perfect illumination of the counter worktops for ease of preparation and cooking, yet still maintains stylish looks.

Similarly, open shelving is also not compromised, and becomes a focal point with the feature juxtapositioning of the panels.

Lastly, the way the Italians combine different worktops really sets the precedence for a truly stylish kitchen design.

In our opinion, it’s not about whether an Italian kitchen is better than a British made one, it’s all about the different styles, and what the customer wants.

So if you’re looking for a classically styled British kitchen or a modern Italian kitchen that epitomises chic design, look no further than Ray Munn Kitchens as we design and supply both!
