Leicht Announces Climate-Neutral Manufacturer Certificate

 29/08/2019      Blog

Here at Kube, climate change and the impact it has on the environment is important to us. Therefore, we are happy to announce that Leicht, who is one of our main suppliers, has been awarded a certificate recognising the brand as a climate-neutral manufacturer of furniture.

As a company that works heavily with wood, reducing their greenhouse gases is a top priority for Leicht which is why they obtain their heat from regenerative energy sources. Leicht have switched to completely green electricity at their plant in Waldstetten, with their plant in Kirchheim following by spring 2020. Watch this space as we bring you exciting news about their new factory too...

On their road to climate neutrality, Leicht had one gap that they are proud to have closed - they have become an active member of the Climate Pact for the Furniture Industry, giving them the official label “climate-neutral furniture manufacturer.” This certificate allows Leicht to demonstrate the complete neutralisation of their CO2 emissions. They will be taking part in the three-stage climate pact for the furniture industry, including balancing, reduction and compensation. The DGM Climate Pact is an association of companies working in the furniture industry supporting the climate protection goals of the United Nations - one of its main goals is the reduction of CO2 emissions.

We at Kube are acutely aware of the environmental issues that we face globally, which is why it is incredibly important for us to play our part too. We are proud to be associated with manufacturers who share this ethos and put environmental changes at the forefront of their policies.


Style, Location and Space

 04/07/2019      Blog

This seaside apartment has panoramic views of the Thames Estuary. Our challenge was to design a kitchen that would not only function flawlessly within the space but also accentuate the location and the picturesque surroundings.


The room we installed the kitchen into is relatively narrow, and the client had their heart set on an island with seating for four. These specifications presented an exciting design challenge and one that Rob, our designer in the Leigh On Sea showroom, was eager to solve. To ensure there was enough space around the island for traffic to move comfortably, we devised a breakfast bar that is more narrow than the width of the main island. The unique breakfast bar fits the contours of the room nicely and facilitates face-to-face dining.


The result is a beautiful kitchen from our Sirius-C range in Mohair Gloss. The breakfast bar is in Limes Oak with a matching splashback and cladding behind the open shelving. The worktop is Silestone in Coral Clay on the island and in the prep zone which reflects the style and location harmoniously. Siemens appliances feature throughout including an induction hob with a retractable extractor. The kitchen is sleek and streamlined in appearance but is bursting with useful features that are befitting to comfortable modern living.

To finish our series of blogs covering the Kube process, this blog covers the final stage which lots of clients feel is the most exciting! It’s now time to add the finishing touches to the client’s kitchen and here at Kube we strive to stay up-to-date with new technologies and product ranges to ensure you have a variety of finishing touches to add to your kitchen, whatever the budget.

We love working with our clients all the way through the Kube process, however the final stage is our favourite. Working as part of a team, we have often spent a lot of time with our clients and seeing their reactions to the end result is extremely rewarding. They have carefully selected each and every component for their kitchen and bringing this all together in the installation is extremely exciting.

When choosing your Kube Kitchen you can pick from a wide range of storage and organising elements to ensure your kitchen design works just how you want it to. From knife blocks to drawers and pullouts we have the perfect storage solution for you, meaning you can organise your kitchen to perfection.


So what is left to complete once your Kube Kitchen has been installed? If you have selected a quartz, stone or wooden worktop we will need to carefully create a template for your kitchen and the finished worktop will be installed approximately 10 days later. With only some minor electrical and plumbing connections left to complete, the installation and those all important accessories to be chosen, it is now time to enjoy your dream Kube kitchen with family and friends.

Designing & Surveying Your Space

Following your initial meeting with one of our expert designers, the team will begin designing your perfect space using your initial design brief. We will prepare a presentation including 3D drawings that will give you full visuals of what your kitchen could look like.

As winners of Best in Houzz 2019 in both the Design and Customer Service categories, we pride ourselves on working with our clients along every stage of their design journey to produce a space that perfectly suits them and their requirements.

Your initial design will be presented to you at a design meeting. This is a really exciting stage of the process as you get to delve into the plans of your future kitchen and provide feedback to help us perfect your design. At this stage you will also discuss budgets and agree the requirements necessary to move on to the next stage.

In advance of placing your order, our installation team will survey your space. Alternatively, if preferred, you can provide measurements from your own installer. Using detailed measurements and photographs, the survey information is relayed to our designers who create a very detailed order pack to include plumbing and electrical plans that will aid the builder during installation.

The Kube Process is designed to support you through every stage of the design process. Our team will utilise their wealth of experience as well as your personal feedback to create a space that works with how you use your kitchen.
