Myths about Flat Pack Kitchens

Renovating your Kitchen is an exciting time and can really transform the look of your home. As a budget friendly option, you should consider flat pack cabinets. However they can get a bad rap due to the below common myths.


Myth - Flat Pack Cabinets aren’t good quality

When some people think about Flat pack, they think about flimsy wood and easily damaged cabinets. This is not the case! Many of the flat pack options available on the market today are made with premium materials. Look at getting Flat pack cabinets that are made from HMR (Highly Moisture Resistant) Particle board that will withstand the wet conditions of the Kitchen area.


Myth – Minimal Colour Range

This use to be the case, there was a time that majority of Flat pack kitchens came only in white, or very limited colour options. These days, nothing could be further from the truth and you have access to a huge range of colours. Not only that, you can also choose if you’re wanting a glossy, matte or timber effect finish that suits your own personal style.


Myth – You can’t get custom sizes

There are Flat Pack options that are only available in modular sizes, however you’re certainly not limited to modular sizes with all Flat Pack Kitchens. Although modular sizes can work in some spaces, a lot of the time they just don’t fit right. But there are customised options available which allow you to order cabinets which will fit your kitchen perfectly for a stunning finished product.


Myth – You have to have experience to assemble flat pack cabinets

Luckily, you don’t need to be a carpenter or cabinet maker to assemble your flat pack kitchen and most companies make it easier by supplying you with all the fixings to construct the cabinetry. You can speak with the Flat Pack company about their products and any queries you may have about the assembly process. In most cases, it’s well within the capability of the home DIY home renovator.
