Default Kitchens in italy

Hi there, friends and I have bought and are renovating an apartment near cervinia and are trying to look at options for kitchens but I can’t get anywhere. Who are the nationwide kitchen sellers in Italy?! Would be great to get a list of cheap/middle of the road/expensive nationwide sellers.

Thanks in advance

Luke

There is Ikea, look at the uk site if Eglish needed as the product numbers are the same on both sites. Or there is the likes of Mondo here. Watch out for these on delivery as they were charging 10% of the cost, but you can pick up at their warehouse. For others look up in the Yellow pages here. I'd look to see who the neighbours use and shop local if you can, may cost a little more, but you will likely get better service and quality.

If you want recommendations on anything always ask the neighbours.

Ikea and Mondo. Cheap and really poor quality. You will need a new kitchen before five years. Ask the contractors doing your renovation work. Often they can refer you to many independent sellers who supply quality goods made in Italy.

Ikea provides a 25 year warranty.

Mondo I think is five. The Mondo 10% includes installation usually. Ikea OTOH tacks on installation to the shipping cost. PLUS they charge you for taking down the old one. Plus they both charge to mount faucets etc.

IMHO the big problem with both are the appliances. The ones they provide aren't that great and they'll charge you a fair bit for them. OTOH you can buy without and pick your favorites from the local appliances shops .

Ikea has more options. Some of which aren't that easy to find with the others.

If you're spending €€€ there are other choices but the question I'd ask if they're better value for the money. Higher cost doesn't mean higher quality.

But in my case, I've got higher quality.

Did the salesman tell you it was better quality whilst counting your money?

The OP asked for cheap/middle of the road and expensive options. Ikea unless you pick one of the set options is actually middle or the road or even borderline expensive.

Better drawer slides cost money,better countertop costs money,different options for the internals cost money,higher heights cost more so it's really easy to double or triple the base cost with Ikea. They sell a faucet that costs more than the third of cost of a basic kitchen. JUST the faucet.

There are places at a fraction of the cost of either Ikea or Mondo.

No, I rented three places in Italy before I bought my own place and chose my own quality merchandise so I have personal experience with what is cheap and falls apart in five years. It's the IKEA and Mondo junk that was in those places I rented.
