Money’s too tight to mention

This has not been any easy year for millions of Australians thanks to catastrophic events such as the bushfires and the Covid19 pandemic. In the midst of the message to stay at home, many households have turned to DIY projects around the house to keep busy, but also to save money.

Flatpacks are a money-saver

While in the past, some people wanting to renovate or install a new kitchen might have called in a builder and other trades, the need to save money is now a priority.

Those wanting excellent value without skimping on quality and have come to the realisation that kitchen flatpacks are what they are looking for in their home.

Value for money

They know that if they’d opted to build a new custom kitchen, it could cost upwards of $40,000. Some households may still be able to splash that kind of cash around in these difficult economic times, but many more want to save money while ensuring their new kitchen will look amazing, welcoming the idea of a DIY project that offers great value for money.

No need to compromise

Buying a flatpack kitchen, which may cost upwards of $10,000, can save you thousands of dollars without having to compromise on quality, design, aesthetics or accessories. Our products are made in Australia and come with a 10-year workmanship guarantee and a lifetime warranty on all the hardware.

Stand out from the crowd

Other aspects to our flatpack kitchens that make us stand out from the crowd while saving you money include:

  • Our kitchen cabinets and doors can all be custom-made to the size and finish you want, with more than 200 cabinet styles to choose from.
  • Our shelving is adjustable and supplied with chrome shelf supports.
  • All the board used is 16 mm quality moisture resistant board, including all backs.
  • We also offer solid 16mm cabinet backs and drawer bottoms – we do not use masonite.
  •  All fixing hardware for cabinets and drawer runners is supplied.

Help is at hand

Not only is the process of choosing a flatpack kitchen online straightforward and easy to follow thanks to our templates and step by step guide, but you don’t have to feel that building and assembling one is only for the Robinson Crusoes of this world – you can ask a mate or a few tradies like a carpenter, plumber and electrician for help along the way.
