A new kitchen showroom from German kitchen retailer, Kutchenhaus, has officially opened its doors at St Pauls House, Lower Bridge Street, Canterbury with an event that raised over £500 for charity.

Launching Saturday 16th September with a live AEG cooking experience, the business welcomed guests through its doors to enjoy freshly prepared food, drinks and live music. As part of the opening, £520 was raised for the Air Ambulance Service with guests donating to the cause.

Canterbury’s Lord Mayor, Cllr. Jean Butcher and Lady Mayoress, Mrs Di Baldock were also in attendance on the day with the Lord Mayor cutting the ribbon and announcing the official opening of the new showroom.

Kutchenhaus Canterbury is co-owned by kitchen experts, Rodney Gaskell and Philip Allen. Between them the pair have 50 years’ experience, both in designing kitchens and within management for kitchen retailers.

The Canterbury showroom is Rodney and Philip’s second space, with a successful showroom in Rainham already established.

Rodney comments: “Philip and I are pleased to take the next step in our journey as business partners, opening our second Kutchenhaus showroom and bringing high-quality, German-engineered kitchens to Canterbury and the surrounding area.”

He continued: “We’re both incredibly passionate about this industry and together we work well as a team. We each have our own skills, and this works perfectly for us. It’s honestly more of a hobby than a job and we see ourselves as lucky as we’re in control of our own destiny. We want to impress our clients from a service point of view and deliver their dream kitchen.”

Kutchenhaus Canterbury features 13 different displays with appliances from brands such as: NEFF, AEG, Caple, Miele, Fulgor Milano, Kaelo and Quooker. As a part of nobilia, Europe’s leading kitchen manufacturer, Kutchenhaus creates affordable kitchens that are skilfully engineered and beautifully designed.

Co-owner, Philip, commented: “Every day is different, and every client is different, so it’s a very creative job. Our experience means we have years of examples to call on from memory to help us create beautiful new spaces, bespoke for our clients – we’re looking forward to these early months.”

Lord Mayor, Cllr. Jean Butcher commented: “It was a pleasure to officially open the new Kutchenhaus Canterbury showroom and to explore the space and chat with guests. An added bonus of the day was the money raised for charity, showing the generosity of those in attendance.  “It’s fantastic to see a new business open in Canterbury and I wish them every success.”
