What makes Nolte a quality German kitchen brand?

Here we explore 17 reasons as to why Nolte is the perfect high-quality German kitchen brand for your home. Nolte German kitchens are designed and manufactured with ease of installation in mind. The exceptional attention to detail means our team of expert designers at Inter Ceramica work closely with you to design your perfect bespoke kitchen.

To make your kitchen design journey easier, our guide to kitchen design terminology is a useful read.

  1. Nolte kitchen dimensions are functional and practical

Nolte kitchens are designed with your needs in mind. For example, you can find Nolte kitchen cabinets with a depth of 35cm, ideal for accommodating larger crockery. In fact, these cabinets can accommodate 12” dinner plates! Worktops are designed to give you maximum space for a comfortable cooking experience.

  1. Nolte kitchen designs use Nolte’s unique 150 grid system

All doors and drawers line up, giving a sleek, sophisticated and modern look.

  1. Thinner, stronger cabinets

Nolte kitchen cabinets are manufactured using a three core construction; like bulletproof glass. They offer far more strength and rigidity, allowing for more space inside the furniture.

  1. Furniture finished inside and outside

Furniture can be planned without end panels and without  unsightly white cabinet undersides.

  1. Fully sealed furniture on all edges

No exposed wood means no peeling or damage even from direct contact with water over many years.

  1. Dust-seal on all cabinet edges

The dust-seal prevents odour and dust exchange from the kitchen and furniture, meaning less time spent cleaning the kitchen.

  1. Solid steel shelf supports with adjustable shelf positions.

You can customise the cabinets to suit your needs, making your kitchen fully unique. Additionally, the steel supports give extra strength to each shelf.

8. Panels and filler pieces available in the same material as the doors,

Such uniformity, along with an unrivalled quality and attention to detail, gives Nolte kitchen cabinets a first-class look. Panels and filler pieces feature a range of materials, including real wood, cement and glass.

  1. 4mm spacing between all doors and drawer fronts

The spacing between every door is equal, minimal and precise, reflecting the quality of the engineering.

  1. Furniture doors finished on the inside

All Nolte furniture doors are finished on the inside, giving a look of luxury and attention to detail.

  1. Stainless steel plinth shoe for furniture side panels

Using stainless steel plinth shoes prevents scuffing or water damage over the life of the kitchen – even when there is a wet floor.

  1. Cabinets are made to suit your appliances

Nolte requires the model numbers of your appliances to make the furniture match the appliance without gaps, filler panels or the need for cutting on site. Giving a sleek, and pristine finish.

  1. Cabinets are supplied factory-built

Cabinets are glued and dowelled to ensure the best strength, quality, and ease of installation.

  1. Laminate worktops are fitted using Nolte’s unique pre-cut joining system

A perfect and seamless join every-time, no sealant or cutting on site required.


  1. All filler pieces, panels, plinth and worktops can be made to size for your kitchen

No wastage and no cutting on site mean a quicker installation and a superior finish.

  1. Lighting is integrated into cabinets

Factory routed furniture for seamless and stylish integrated lighting options, without cutting on site. Lighting in kitchen cabinets not only help to display your items but create a great ambiance.
