Turning old into new with BLUM

May 18, 2017

Rudi Pfieffer from Vorarlberg, Austria is a pharmacist by trade so he knows how important it is to put storage space to optimal use, keep items safe and have structured workflows – even in a kitchen. His father-in-law is a maker of kitchens. That’s why his old kitchen was modern and functional but it had been in use for three decades and had slightly lost touch with the times.

After 30 years, Rudi decided it was high time for a new kitchen. His list of wishes included practical solutions, top quality and a contemporary look. Blum’s experts helped him make his dreams come true.

Rudi expectations were high. He wanted to completely revamp his kitchen and employ contemporary solutions. He fully investigated the latest kitchen trends and produced drawings. He went to Blum’s showroom in Dornbirn and took a closer look at the functional fittings on display. He tested them to his heart’s content.

Mobile cabinets can be arranged to simulate possible kitchen layouts so he was even able to “test drive” his new kitchen. He was overjoyed with the result. “I can only recommend it to everyone,” he says. “Now I’m well equipped for the next 30 years.”

Every good kitchen has one important role: it needs to meet the user’s requirements. “That’s why you should take plenty of time to think about your needs and wishes if you want to carry out a refurbishment,” advises Mariam Witzemann, DYNAMIC SPACE expert at Blum.

“What are your daily routines? What items do you want to keep in your kitchen? Where do you eat your meals? It’s best to write down your answers and give them to your kitchen planner.”

This is what Rudi Pfeiffer’s new Blum kitchen includes:

BLUM SINK UNIT

In contrast to old units with two doors, the new sink unit makes better use of the storage space available with a U-shaped pull-out above and a high fronted pull-out below.

AMBIA-LINE INNER DIVIDING SYSTEM

“Nothing slides around, nothing clatters,” says Rudi Pfeiffer commenting on his beautifully organised drawers.

AVENTOS BI-FOLD LIFT

The pharmacist often had to dodge projecting cabinet doors in his old kitchen. His new wall cabinets have been equipped with the AVENTOS BI-FOLD lift system to give him freedom of movement.

LEGRABOX

“The elegant pull-outs open with incredible ease even when heavily laden,” enthuses Rudi Pfeiffer when asked to comment on the latest pull-out in the Blum range.

 

SPACE TOWER

“The larder unit is so wide and large that it gives us a completely new feeling of space in our kitchen. This cabinet makes my wife happy every time she uses it!”

SERVO-DRIVE

Rudi Pfeiffer wanted to have a handle-less kitchen. He simply loves the SERVO-DRIVE electric motion support system. “This is a fantastic development and makes my new kitchen perfect right down to the last detail,” he says happily.

 

Blum Products are available locally through Eclipse Group.
