In most properties, the kitchen is the heart of a home. It is where we spend time cooking, socialising, cleaning and unwinding. It’s important to not only have a space that works for you, but also one that you can be proud of.
Here at iKan Kitchens near Kendal in Cumbria we exclusively supply high-quality Kuhlmann kitchens for our customers. Our blog looks into the popular manufacturer as well as the unique features that their kitchens offer.
As an award-winning manufacturer, Kuhlmann Kitchens have been creating sophisticated living spaces for almost 100 years. The German brand were founded in 1923 by brothers Wilhelm and Robert Kuhlmann. It was known as the RWK© Company and in 1949 Walter Kuhlmann took over the company.
By 1960, focus shifted towards the creation of add-on kitchens and 10 years later these started to be fitted across Germany. Bernd Robert Wilhelm Kuhlmann and Jochen Kuhlmann later became involved, leading to the production of more contemporary designs.
Today we know the manufacturer for their ‘Kuhlmann – Meine Küche. Made in Germany’ brand. Their focus is still on family values and there are around 100 employees working for them at the headquarters in Enger, North Rhine-Westphalia.

1. 1° Angle Units
One of the largest selling points of these kitchens is the unique designs available. One of those features is 11° angle units. As well as being a unique addition, these units are a fantastic way of combining 2 different colour palettes.
11° angle units are ideal for small areas as they can reduce the amount of space taken up while increasing storage. If you would like to look at these in person, please feel free to visit our showroom where we have several examples.
2. Colour Match Handles
Sometimes cabinet handles can be a fantastic feature. There are many different styles and shapes available, giving you full control over the appearance. At Kuhlmann they supply powder-coated handles which can be matched to the colour of your cupboards.
As well as matching a colour, you can create your own unique look by selecting from a variety of contrasting shades.
3. Multi-Level End Base Units
One of the most important aspects of a kitchen is storage of food, drinks, and crockery. With multi-level end base units, you can make the most of the cupboard space available. These are 3 sided interlocking drawers which can be designed in a variety of combinations.
These units are available to view in our showroom and we are more than happy to talk you through the combinations.
4. Tall Multi-Corner Units
Alongside multi-level, there are also tall multi-corner units available for supply. These are attractive and add something different whilst creating usable space. These open-ended shelving units have internal drawers and shelves, perfect for display items, cookbooks and more. Visit our showroom for more details.
5. RAL Colours and Other Styles
Using RAL colour charts, Kuhlmann Kitchens can be customised to suit your specific style and taste. Whether you want a bold and unique colour or have a more reserved palette, there will be the perfect option for you. Finishes to pick from include high gloss as well as matt.
On top of this, book-matched wood grains are available. You can easily view any of these styles and finish options at our showroom.
