What Are The Benefits Of Buying A British Kitchen?
From the quality of the products themselves to the time it takes to receive your kitchen, there are lots of benefits to buying British. Here at Ream, we have dedicated over 40 years to sourcing the finest products and perfecting our service. We offer an extensive range of British-made kitchens which we believe represent the ultimate in quality, design innovation, value, and style. Below we’ll be explaining some of the fantastic reasons we believe British kitchens make an excellent choice.
While Germany may have pipped us to the post in the 60s with their state-of-the-art production facilities, in recent years, British manufacturers have invested substantially in the latest, cutting-edge technologies. Combined with our rich heritage of traditional craftsmanship and cabinet-making skills, the UK now produces some of the finest quality kitchens on the market. Needless to say, a British-made kitchen will be much more durable and long-lasting than the cheap, mass-manufactured furniture produced outside of Europe.

The Latest Styles
No one does fashion quite like the Parisians, and Scandinavia’s minimalist mid-century furniture is certainly hard to beat. However, when it comes to collating trends and translating them into elegant and liveable interiors, the UK certainly has the edge.
While our charming and graceful English country kitchens are undoubtedly iconic, we can also be credited with popularising the stunning must-have that is the navy shaker kitchen. From the ‘Japandi’ movement to the resurgence of Memphis-inspired interiors, the UK often leads the way in setting the latest trends. Our manufacturers pride themselves on creating the perfect products to complement our eclectic yet elegant tastes. So, whether you’re looking for a beautiful, quintessentially English interior or a pared-back yet homely modern space, a British kitchen makes a superb choice.
Since the UK has left the EU, importing kitchens from France, Italy, and Germany has become a lengthy process. Purchasing a kitchen from a British manufacturer can not only save time but will also reduce transportation costs. This way, you can be sure your money will go into the materials and energy involved in producing your kitchen and not on delivery!
Likewise, though most high-quality British kitchens are built to last, if you do need a replacement part or spare, you won’t need to wait weeks for it to be delivered. Similarly, if you encounter any problems with your kitchen, it should be easier and quicker for your chosen retailer to resolve them if they are dealing with a company based in the UK.
Supporting Our Economy
Investing in a British kitchen is an excellent way to support the UK economy. British kitchen manufacturers employ a lot of people and play an important role in local communities throughout the UK. Plus, putting more money into our economy and creating more jobs will benefit us all in the long run.
A Sustainable Choice
British manufacturers are held to a high standard when it comes to sustainability and are largely committed to taking environmental concerns seriously. From using FSC-certified timber to investing in biomass boilers and more efficient delivery vehicles, many UK manufacturers are taking the initiative to reduce their carbon footprint. Plus, investing in furniture built here in the UK will reduce the carbon cost associated with transporting your products from the manufacturing facility to your home.
There are many benefits to buying a British kitchen, and with an extensive range of eye-catching styles and designs to choose from, you’re sure to find a solution that works for you.
