Today this modern building materials increasingly found within the interior of sophisticated, minimalist design, family houses.

Concrete surfaces always have a distinctive appearance. The kitchen fronts of the new concrete have a genuine, hand-applied concrete surface. Leicht uses the special material properties and the appearance of the concrete material to its advantage, so as to bring prestigious kitchen concepts from modern to minimalist to life. Naturally, the possibilities to meet customers’ wishes regarding dimensions and form, are also available with the CONCRETE kitchen. Every kitchen front, every design element is hand made to the desired dimensions.

The manufacture of a concrete front demands much know-how and craftsman’s skill. Fine concrete is manually applied with aspatula to a lacquered MDF – panel. This produces an authentic, unique surface appearance with subtly changing spatula textures. Differently refracted light further brings the front to life. A matt lacquer seal makes the front very durable and gives it a silky feel.
