Kitchen retailer opens new showroom in Eltham as it edges closer to 50 stores

Kitchen retailer Kutchenhaus has opened its first ever store in Eltham, southeast London this month, providing stylish, German-designed bespoke kitchens.

The store at 1 St Mary’s Place just off the High Street officially opened its doors on the 15th of October at 11am with a special opening event to welcome customers to the store and a cut the ribbon ceremony with the head of sales and operations. The store will serve customers across Eltham as well as the London boroughs of Greenwich and Bexley.

The shop is managed by John Lait who has more than 30 years’ experience working in the kitchen industry. He has previously been a senior design consultant at prestigious competitor brands and has worked extensively across southeast London throughout his career.

The two-story building boasts 1,750 square foot of retail space and will initially have two members of staff across customer services and kitchen design. The team have plans to employ another three members of staff within the next year once the store is settled.

Kutchenhaus is owned by Nobilia, Europe’s largest kitchen manufacturer and provides stylish, German designed ranges which are built to last following 70 years of technology, research and product development. Residents in Eltham can now benefit from the highest quality units and features including products produced by AEG and Quooker to provide full-service design of a kitchen.

Every kitchen is given a bespoke look with designers offering innovative solutions for any special wishes a customer has. Virtual appointments are also available with Kutchenhaus’ online 3D planning and design tool to create kitchens remotely for local customers if they are unable to come to the store.

John Lait, business manager of Kutchenhaus in Eltham, commented on the opening:

“We are incredibly happy to have opened our new store in Eltham and can’t wait to welcome the local community so they can view the contemporary displays that are on offer. The showroom has been transformed incredibly quick, it has taken just five weeks to transform the space to high-quality standards and we are proud to now be ready to open.

“We’ve noticed that Eltham and many of the nearby areas are bright up and coming places, there is a lot of investment and development happening in the region, so it seemed an ideal fit to open our showroom here. We are also excited to be launching a business that can support the local community on their home improvements.

Sean Ford, national head of sales and operations for Kutchenhaus, said:

“The past 18 months has provided plenty of challenges but Kutchenhaus has adapted and continued to experience fantastic growth which we hope will continue over the next 2-3 years. It is extremely satisfying that John is in a position to be able to open a new store in Eltham and offer local customers the opportunity to plan and design their dream kitchen.

“The new showroom will no doubt offer an engaging environment and deliver a high-quality product, a market opportunity which we know is currently in high demand. We wish the team all the best and wait to see their future success.”
