Planning is the be-all and end-all when it comes to buying a kitchen. To begin with, it is important to take the exact measurements of your kitchen. Pay attention to the size and shape of the room. It is also important to consider the placement of the connections and the position of any windows. Think carefully about the desired number and arrangement of cabinets, worktops and appliances to allow for a functional workflow. In addition to functionality, aesthetics also play an important role. It is ideal when function and form merge into a unity that gives you new pleasure every day.
Style and design
What someone finds appealing is very individual. Trends often lead the way here, but they alone should be decisive. First and foremost, decide on a kitchen style that suits your home and your personal taste. At Häcker, you can choose between numerous colours, materials and fronts and be inspired by different products and series. Make sure that the style you choose suits you, regardless of current trends. Your other furnishing style can also give you a good indication of what you like and don't like. Do you want to renovate your home and completely redefine your interior style? Or do you want the Häcker ensemble to fit in with your existing interior design? Häcker kitchens offers you many choices for each case.
Functionality and ergonomics
Plan the arrangement of the different kitchen areas such as cooking, preparation and washing up so that the work processes are efficient. Think about sufficient storage space for crockery, pots, pans and kitchen utensils to save yourself the hassle of searching in everyday life. Also consider ergonomic aspects such as the height of worktops, which is based on your height, or the height of built-in appliances such as dishwashers and ovens. The placement of appliances that you use regularly should also be taken into account here.
Materials and equipment
High-quality materials are an important factor for everyday comfort in life. Häcker therefore generally recommends paying attention to high quality right from the start when buying a kitchen. Areas that are used a lot, such as worktops, handles and fittings, are particularly likely to win if they are of high quality. So when buying a kitchen, make sure that the materials are durable and easy to clean, so that you will still be able to enjoy them the day after tomorrow. When choosing electrical appliances, you should also pay attention to energy efficiency to protect both the environment and your wallet. At Häcker, sustainability is one of the most important guiding principles that decisively shape our corporate policy. Our BLAUPUNKT electrical appliances stand for maximum efficiency and economical consumption. Also consider the careful selection of additional equipment elements such as extractor bonnets, lighting and kitchen appliances, which can be the icing on the cake for your dream kitchen. Details like these make a significant difference.
Customer service and warranty
Find out about the Häcker kitchen dealer's customer service and find out which warranty services for the kitchen furniture and electrical appliances are included or, if applicable, offered with a small surcharge. When you buy a kitchen, you should always clarify which services are available after the purchase, such as repairs or spare parts. Keep all relevant documents, such as invoices and guarantee certificates, carefully so that you can use your guarantees in the event of an emergency.
This rough checklist can serve as a guide and support you in the kitchen purchase project. What seems like a very complex process is suddenly easy with this checklist. Simply go through each intermediate step. This way you can ensure that your new kitchen is tailored exactly to your needs and wishes. At the same time, the team and the respective kitchen dealers are there to help and advise you.
Delivery and assembly
Discuss delivery times and costs with your Häcker kitchen dealer to take into account the timing of your kitchen planning. Make sure that the assembly is carried out by experienced professionals to guarantee a professional installation. After assembly, check the final result carefully to ensure that everything meets your wishes and requirements and that nothing has been overlooked either.
