Flat Pack Kitchen Assembly FAQs

From attaching blind cabinet hinges to getting your cabinet doors just right, assembling your flat pack kitchen might seem like a daunting task. However, a flat pack option is perfect for those on a budget and they can be surprisingly easy to put together. Today, we’ll be answering some of the most commonly asked questions we get when it comes to flat packed kitchens.


Do I need to have experience to assemble my cabinets?

This is a common concern people have – will you be capable of assembling your flat packed kitchen if you’re not a tradie? Luckily, you don’t need to have any experience to give flat pack a go. Flat packed cabinets are generally surprisingly easy to assemble and come with easy to follow instructions. Of course, it’s best to look for a company who offer simple construction with their cabinets so always ask about assembly before you make your purchase.

Will I need special tools to assemble my cabinets?

One of the main reasons for purchasing a flat pack option for the kitchen is to save money, so the last thing you want is to have to purchase new tools to set it all up. However, generally you only need basic tools for the job and the DIY home renovator should have very few issues. Of course, if you just don’t feel confident doing the assembly yourself, you can always hire a carpenter.


Can the cabinets be used elsewhere in the house?

Of course they can! Just because you purchase flat packed kitchen cabinets doesn’t mean that they have to stay in the kitchen. Flat packed cabinets can be used anywhere throughout the house, from the laundry and bathrooms to the study and bedrooms.


Are custom options available?

When people think of flat pack furniture, they often think that they only come in modular sizes. However, this isn’t the case and there are many companies who offer customised sizes in a flat pack option. This gives you the best of both worlds as you get the convenience and affordability of flat pack, with the perfect fit offered by custom sizes.
