Frequently Asked Questions


I would like to install a new kitchen, what should I buy?

For a detailed answer, please review our kitchen remodel checklist. Whatever items you want to include in your modern kitchen, you should ensure that you use quality products, which is where Blum products stand out.

Can I get more space for storage?

Vivant will help you to carry targeted planning, which takes storage space as an important priority. For instance, our pull-out designs will help you to get more storage space without feeling squeezed in your new kitchen.

How much weight should I put in my pull-out systems?

We design our pull-outs with heavy load in mind. They are therefore able to accommodate as much as 80kg and safe to use depending upon the specification a full extension runner.

Are there any important ergonomic considerations?

When designing your modern kitchen, you should take your own height into consideration to ensure that you will be able to work in comfort. The rule of thumb is to allow 15cm between you elbow (when you fold your arm) and your work area. However, this does not mean that everything should be installed in the same height. Some, like the oven, should be lower. You will thus not only maintain a proper posture but also exercise your back for an overall good health.

Won't installing a modern kitchen be too costly?

In addition to cost, you should consider how frequently and how long you intend to use the kitchen. In any case, studies have shown that you will save in the long run by installing a modern kitchen, and there isn't much difference between its cost and that of an ordinary kitchen.
