A proven model supporting over 800 showrooms

The Schmidt franchise family is a network of over 800 fellow business owners across 30 countries who go to work every day feeling immensely proud of the quality products they represent.

Traditionally associated with custom-built kitchens, Schmidt now offers made-to-measure interior design solutions for every room in the home. This successful diversification of our product offering has further increased the value of our trusted business model and gives you even more opportunity to succeed.

No stock, just sales

The Schmidt business model does away with any costly and distracting need to manage a warehouse full of stock. All sales are made to order at one of our state-of-the-art factories in France and Germany, before being shipped directly to the customer – so all you need to concentrate on is design and sales.

Customer experience

Giving customers the opportunity to experience your enormous range of beautiful home interior solutions is key to convincing them Schmidt is the right choice for their renovations.

With that in mind, we will help you create a truly memorable showroom experience – harnessing the synergy of the very latest trends in interior design, layout, storage solutions and virtual reality technology.
