Has anyone experience of Poggenphol kitchens particularly the Guildford branch? We are thinking about spending a hefty sum having been disappointed by the poor service and quality of cheaper providers. Is it worth it for a big house and how do they really compare price, quality and service wise to the likes of Smallbone and Alno and Roundhouse (Guildford based)?
I have a Pronorm kitchen from Nicholas Anthony, apparently made in same factory as the Poggenphol. As I have a v large space it was easy to create a great kitchen using stock items and not necessary to custom make. It is beautiful and their service was great. They also have Siematic which I had not heard of before and is gorgeous but out of my price range. Worth checking out.
I went with SieMatic and regret it every day. It's very expensive, and despite their claims, their quality isn't great. They initially put in the wrong colour, I had to fight the better part of 3 months to get them to come take a look (it took one look to see it wasn't what I ordered) and then when they replaced it they didn't spray all the new panels the same colour so I have a weird mishmash of multiple colours of blue. Now fighting to just get one single colour as it's really irritating to have 3 different shades of blue on one kitchen. Don't believe the hype--they do great advertisements but having fought them for a year I wish I would have had the warning to stay away. Not worth the hassle, headache and expense.
