Looking to renovate in the new year? - How to get started with Flat pack cabinets

17 December 2020
Planning to renovate in the new year

The end of the year always seems to come up sooner then we expect and we’ve run out of time to fit in those DIY projects we wanted to get done, so lets get organised to start your renovations in the new year. Not only are we generally more motivated at the beginning of the year, the entertaining you do over the Christmas period often helps you realise that your kitchen could do with a facelift!

If you’ve been considering installing flat pack cabinets, now is the perfect time to capitalise on that new year momentum and we’re here to fill you in on how you can get the process started.

Think about what you want

Assess your current kitchen and consider what you need to make your new space both functional and attractive. Do you need some overhead cabinets for more space? Do you need to change up an awkward layout? Do you have enough bench space? Think about your requirements and take some initial measurements so you have a better idea of what you’re looking for.

Get some kitchen inspiration

Once you’ve narrowed down some design requirements, start looking around at flat pack cabinet options to see if any designs take your fancy. Remember, it’s not just about aesthetics – make sure you take a closer look and make sure the cabinets are good quality so they’ll stand up to daily use. Check out the range of colours and finishes on offer too so you’re not limited to only one look.

Modular sizing vs custom sizing

When it comes to flat pack kitchen cabinets, you’ll also need to decide whether you want to opt for a modular option or a customised product. Although modular products are generally budget friendly, it’s important to be aware that unless the modular options are a perfect fit then you may need to hire a professional to shorten or lengthen your cabinets to complete the look. However, a customised approach is far easier – simply measure up and your cabinets will be manufactured to your specifications.

Consider pre-assembled cabinets

Although you may be keen to go ahead and update your kitchen cabinets, the thought of flat packed kitchen units might be putting you off. We get it – you probably have other things you’d rather spend your time doing! If this is the case, you can always make things easier for yourself by looking around for companies who also offer an assembled option with their cabinets so they can just slot them into place.

At eKitchens, we make kitchens easy with our range of custom made cabinets which will perfectly fit your space. Manufactured from 16mm High Moisture Resistant Particle board, our cabinets are easy to assemble and include soft closing hardware.  We offer flat pack cabinets or an assembled option – whichever works best for you.
