Leicht NYC Loft Showroom
Directly across the elevators leading into the showroom is a conference table generally used to meet with clients. There is enough space for architects to lay out the plans as well. At times the designer will use the large screen TV to show a 3D rendering of the kitchen. The enlarged photos give a real feel of being in the kitchen. Leicht offers custom tables, as pictured, in any of the cabinet options offered.
AVANCE kitchens is one of the kitchens types for which Leicht is most famous for. The most notable feature is its being completely handleless. No one else does handleless the way Leicht does. Another unique feature is the SENSO-MATIC system shown on the cabinets above the island. Lightly push the bottom and it opens up in a bi-fold. The best part is, it's guaranteed to work for years being that's it's powered using a standard watch size battery!
Leicht's lacquered cabinets are offered in thousands of colors and is matched to RAL, Europe's pantone system. The orange open shelving brings a pop of color to this otherwise modest kitchen. Erby countertops were used here. They can be installed in a width as slim as 1 cm! There are two different types of under or inner cabinet LED lighting we carry. One is the strip lighting, shown in the open shelving above the hood. It's angled back to give the shelf a soft illumination. The second are the very classy square LED spotlights shown in the right corner unit.
Get ready for this! Leicht now incorporates the PITT cooktop in our kitchens. The gas burners are set directly into the countertop. This allows you to completely customize your layout and set it in many different configurations. The hood directly above it is the Miele slideout. It's completely hidden and sits inside the cabinet. The edge of it slides out to increase the capture area of your delicious food. This is a very popular choice in modern and minimalistic kitchens.
The full countertop depth shown here is 3 feet, as opposed to 2 feet typically measured in a standard countertop. The front is workable space with an additional foot behind that that can house an appliance garage or the deeper shelving. The top hinged cabinets all have a beautiful stainless steel grip on the edge for a real clean, modern look.
People walk into Leicht wanting this pull out pantry. The incredible thing is it fits into less than 12" width! As an extra touch, it includes a metal rack with a luxurious looking glass bottom. The TIMBER style cabinets shown here are made of wood veneer and is offered in 4 colors. Look closely at the texture and you'll notice the vertical grain with a horizontal crosscut.
Besides for being able to choose between thousands of colors in the RAL system, clients opting for a painted lacquered cabinets can also choose from 3 finishes. There is a standard matt lacquer, a high gloss lacquer and an eggshell for divine silky smooth shelves. The waterfall bar counter shown in this kitchen was made using the same material as the attached cabinetry. Like we said, everything is possible.
This solid piece of concrete used in the countertop is completely seamless. Like we say, if you can get it in the elevator we can get it in your New York City apartment. It comes in lengths of up to to 20 feet. You can't go wrong with this choice since it's the same material used in major European transportation terminals.
The cabinetry shown here is from Leicht's ORLANDO line. To be specific, it's a laminate in oak silver and can be perfectly matched back to a real wood veneer, depending on your budget. The full height STRATO cabinetry has a fine texture which looks like-sand on the beach. It can be ordered in both white and taupe and is always a win when paired with any accent color.
Looking for traditional? Here's something to check out. Leicht carries a classic shaker style door made out of a solid piece of mdf; no warping, no cracking and no swelling. There are also traditional crown mouldings available to complete the look. Here the sides and top are blocked off with 6 cm thick cabinetry posts to frame it out for a modern feel. The butcher block is made from yet another one of the materials Leicht offers.
This is it! Leicht changes the future of committed wall space with this very chic fantastic modular system. The options are endless. You can add lighting and hang your television with the wiring hidden out of view. It features fully adjustable shelving and/or drawers that can be used to storage all your media. Now with more people trending towards open concept, the kitchen, dining room and living room have all become one space. This system allows your home's overall to complement each other using similar textures and finishes without being too matchy-matchy.
If you haven't been to one of Leicht's 'How much will my kitchen cost' classes, well, you may be missing out. Good food aside, this is one of the most informative classes that answers questions for the couple starting on their first kitchen to those midway through the process or at the finishing touches. The classes take place every second Saturday of the month in the loft's large conference room. This room is also used for design meetings. Often times it will be filled with a variety of professionals working on a project, including the contractor, designer, architect and kitchen designers.

Along the wall overlooking Manhattan's bustling street is our upscale ESPRIT kitchen made of real oak that has been lacquered. The glass covered appliance garages on the back wall are completely flush with the cabinetry and 2 Gagineau ovens were installed to complement the designed symmetry. The lower cabinets on the right hang on the wall and a glass backsplash sits above it. A stainless steel countertop was chosen for it's notable durability. What catches visitors' eyes is the incredibly designed island-turned-table in the center of the kitchen. A waterfall countertop turns into a bench with 2 doors of storage underneath. The flow continues into a kitchen table that can be used for casual family dinners or fine dining dinner parties.
This all-around classic two-tone kitchen features acrylic base units in taupe and handleless wooden laminate upper cabinets. The acrylic finish is very strong and can handle lots of wear for active families. An induction cooktop can be installed either slightly raised or flush with the countertop.
