What was old is new again
After 30 years, it was time for a new kitchen
Rudi Pfieffer from Vorarlberg, Austria is a pharmacist by trade, so he knows how important it is to have storage space, to keep items safe, and to have efficient workflows – even in a kitchen. That’s why his old kitchen was functional, but it had been in use for three decades and had slightly lost touch with the times. We’d like to show you the modern solutions that he put in his new kitchen.

Investment for the next 30 years
Rudi’s expectations were high. He wanted to completely revamp his kitchen and use contemporary solutions. He researched the latest kitchen trends, made some drawings, and consulted with Blum’s experts.
He visited the showroom in Dornbirn to get a closer look at the many options. He tested cabinet options and layouts was overjoyed with the result. ‘I can only recommend it to everyone,’ he says. ‘Now I’m well equipped for the next 30 years.’

Tips from Blum experts
Every good kitchen has one important role: it needs to meet your personal requirements. "That’s why you should take plenty of time to think about your needs and wishes if you want to remodel," advises Mariam Witzemann, DYNAMIC SPACE expert at Blum. "What is your daily routine? What items do you want to keep in your kitchen? Where do you eat your meals? It’s best to write down your answers and give them to your kitchen designer."
Miriam Witzemann created three different designs for Rudi Pfeiffer’s new kitchen.
Design 3: Eat-in kitchen
If the Pfeiffers hadn’t had a separate dining room, this design would have turned their kitchen into an eat-in kitchen with a corner bench and dining table.
