Kitchen retailer serves up a new showroom

Kitchen retailer Kutchenhaus is set to open its first showroom in Leeds on 28 May.

The showroom on Roundhay Road will also be hosting a launch event on 11 June. The business is co-owned by Hauey Nguyen and Joseph Murgatroyd, who have over 20 years’ combined industry experience.

Nguyen has worked as a designer for a variety of kitchen manufacturers, including at Nobilia and the flagship Kutchenhaus showroom in York, while Murgatroyd has spent the last decade in the kitchen industry, most recently running the kitchen operation for Inter Ceramica.

The pair’s new showroom features 1,200 sq ft of retail space, four full kitchen displays, as well as other room solutions including home offices, a bathroom and two office displays.

Initially, the Leeds operation will comprise a team of two covering customer services and kitchen design, with plans in place to employ further local personnel in due course. The showroom will also work alongside experts at five local businesses for its installations.

Kutchenhaus is a franchise business and recently celebrated reaching a milestone of 50 showrooms in the UK. It is owned by Nobilia, Europe’s largest kitchen manufacturer and provides German designed ranges.

Nguyen said: “We are incredibly excited to be opening our first kitchen showroom in Leeds. The team have worked hard to transform the space to look fantastic and we can’t wait to welcome customers in to see our range of displays.

“Both of us are from the local area, and the showroom is located in a desirable spot where community spirit is strong so we know there will be great support.”

Sean Ford, national head of sales and operations, said: “In the midst of an ambitious growth path, we’re proud of the progress Kutchenhaus is making and it is wonderful to see the ambition of Hauey and Joseph shine through as they open their first showroom in Leeds, offering local customers the opportunity to plan and design their dream kitchen.”
