Times are a changing
There was a time when DIY flatpack kitchens were the poor relative of custom kitchens. However, thanks to the rise of popularity all things DIY, and accessible products to match that, that’s no longer the case. A properly installed DIY flatpack kitchen will look just as splendid as a custom kitchen. So what are the trends in DIY flatpack kitchens?
Flatpack kitchens are seen as the affordable solution while offering high-quality solutions to your renovation – or new build – needs.
But while that is generally well understood, perhaps what is less well known when it comes to DIY flatpack kitchens and current trends is that they are fully customisable. This is great news because it means that it doesn’t matter what size or shape your future kitchen is, your DIY flatpack kitchen can be planned accordingly.
Another element of DIY flatpack kitchens that has also vastly changed with the times is the worry that they are difficult to assemble. Many of us have had that self-assembly disaster moment, but that can just be a memory now. Putting together a flatpack kitchen is a fairly easy job, so don’t be put off by any concerns that it could be hair-tearingly tricky.
You’re the boss
The other benefit of DIY flatpack kitchens is that instead of relying on a variety of tradespeople to install it for you – who can cost a lot and may not be reliable – you can take charge of the project yourself, although there is nothing to stop you hiring a carpenter or qualified handyman to give you a hand.
