Steps on How to Plan Your Flat Pack Kitchen

Whether you just bought a new home or you want to update your kitchen, planning a new kitchen renovation is a key component. This means that if you spend more time planning to get the right plan, you will increase the value of your home and also be happy in your new kitchen for many years to come.

Why Choose a Flat Pack Kitchen?

When it comes to kitchens, you’ll discover that flat pack kitchens are becoming popular due to their excellent mix of style, quality, and value. Flat pack kitchens are among the best DIY types of kitchens because they are easy to assemble after you purchase the components from manufacturers. The components are cut and drilled, and you can easily fit these pieces together like jigsaw puzzles.

What to include in your plan

Measure your Kitchen Floor Space and Size

This is the first step, and all kitchen renovations begin by knowing the size before deciding on the number of pot drawers, appliances, and cupboards among others to include in your design. You can also draw a sketch for the ideal kitchen you want. This shouldn’t be a difficult task but remember to measure the room without forgetting the appliance spaces, architraves, windows, and other kitchen elements.

Analyse the Kitchen Space

Consider everybody who will be using the kitchen and how they will work together including:

  • Will your kitchen be used for laundry?
  • Will your kids do their homework at the breakfast bar when you’re cooking?
  • Do you need specific appliances to be fitted in your kitchen?
  • Consider getting larger bench spaces if your kitchen will also be an entertainment room.
  • How many people will be using the kitchen at the same time?
  • Do you want to retain the existing gas, power points, and water locations to cut on costs?


When renovating your kitchen, drawing a triangle between the three main areas which are the fridge, kitchen sink, and stove is important. It ensures that your kitchen is designed in such a way that you can easily cook. Storage space is also important when designing.

Benefits of Flat Pack Kitchens

Flat pack kitchens exist both in custom and standard sizes, and this means that you can get kitchen bench tops, cabinets, and space for your appliances. Flat pack kitchens are also affordable compared to having a new kitchen designed, built and installed for you.
