Living with Blum - Katja and Andreas

The young couple makes the most of every inch

We'd like to show you real homes! Katja and Andreas Lubetz’s dream has come true: they have a house of their own. Let’s have a look at the different living spaces in their home and see how they’ve made the most of the storage space available.


If both partners go out to work, cooking must be quick and easy. ‘We've made sure that everything's exactly where we need it. For example, the pull-out for pots and pans is directly under the hob. That saves time and energy,’ says Andreas. And thanks to the ORGA-LINE inner dividing system, you can quickly find the matching lid.

Portable spice rack

‘It's always good to have plenty of spices,’ agrees the young couple. Luckily, Blum's spice holder holds containers and packets of all shapes and sizes. And the portable spice rack can be placed on the worktop in a flash.

No hands needed

Katja and Andreas wanted a good place for their beautiful collection of wine glasses. They are always within easy reach in the spacious wall cabinet with AVENTOS lift systems. Thanks to the SERVO-DRIVE electrical opening support system, the front glides up automatically so both hands are free for taking out the glasses.

‘The wall cabinet opens at a single touch and closes at the press of a switch. That's really practical if you've got something in both hands.’

Sinktops aren't cluttered

For Katja and Andreas, washing up has to be quick and efficient, too. They keep all the cleaning utensils they need for everyday use, e.g. sponges, washing-up liquid, dishwasher tabs, in the sink pull-out. ‘What I really like is that there’s nothing on the sink. Everything’s always cleared away,’ says Katja happily.

No space wasted

The couple proudly shows us how you can put every inch of storage space to practical and effective use. Cabinets with pull-outs and doors have been fitted under the stairs. They open with the TIP-ON mechanical opening system.

‘It's amazing how much we can fit in,’ says Andreas.

Practical cabinets for your kitchen

Katja and Andreas attached great importance to having practical cabinets. They make everyday kitchen use easier and provide plenty of storage space. Discover even more practical solutions and add more convenience and functionality to your kitchen.

More practical cabinet solutions

Living room

The theme of functionality is carried through from the couple’s kitchen to their living room. The furniture has a sleek and elegant look and offers enhanced user convenience thanks to high-tech fittings.


Equipment is hidden away

‘In our old flat we had ugly equipment standing around, and there was always a tangle of cables,’ says Andreas as he proudly shows the new solution: a wall cabinet with AVENTOS lift systems.

‘I want everything within easy reach but I don’t want to see it.’

For a quiet night in watching TV

Katja and Andreas like to relax in front of the TV after a hard day's work.

For nights in playing games

‘We love to invite friends round for an evening of games,’ says the couple. The board games are kept in the living room. There's a special inner drawer for the small boxes. Summer the dog likes it too.


Even the bathroom is organised to a tee. The bathroom furniture has been equipped with top quality fittings and provides ample storage space.


Speedy make-up and styling

‘I like to be organised and it's great to find matching lipstick straight away,’ says Katja. The two drawers and ORGA-LINE inner dividers organise items beautifully. Nothing can go wrong - not even shortly before a last-minute business meeting.

‘It’s nice to see everything at a glance.’

If you don't go shopping often, you tend to hoard things

‘We always have a whole stockpile of shampoo, shower gel, etc. at home,’ says Andreas. But even larger items fit into the spacious TANDEMBOX plus pull-out and are always immediately to hand.
