Sorry mate, no can do

Have you tried calling a tradie lately and locking in a renovation or makeover job around your home? In the lead-up to Christmas, you will be lucky to get quotes and a job started before the end of January 2021.

Use newfound skills

But perhaps you’ve upped your DIY skills during the year, thanks to working from home, and you’re looking for your next challenge. What better time to think about what to add to your DIY Christmas stocking.

DIY jobs piling up

Maybe working from home has had the opposite effect and you far prefer spending your leisure time out and about after being cooped up all week. But you know full well those DIY jobs aren’t completing themselves.

So have a think about what it is you would really like to add to your DIY Christmas stocking – a job just for yourself or a task you know would make the family say Ho! Ho! Ho! such as a new laundry, wardrobe, entertainment unit or a kitchen.

What needs some TLC?

You may have decided that your kitchen is looking tired. Would you love to modernise it with quality cabinetry and accessories to enhance the space and do it at a very competitive price?  

Or perhaps the company you work for has given you the green light to continue working from home next year and you’d like to build a new home office so that you have more space for your laptop, printer, office desk, filing cabinet and more.

‘Tis the season

At Smartpack, our online flatpack options offer you the ability to build a new laundry, kitchen, home office, bathroom, and more.

What’s more, you’d enjoy the satisfaction of doing it yourself, or getting a crew – mates, in-laws, siblings, family members – together to help out or use it as a bonding experience. After all, ‘tis the season to be merry with a DIY project.

Quality finishes

A custom kitchen could be just what Santa will be squeezing down the chimney – and you’re looking forward to getting the job done – particularly as choosing a SmartPack flatpack kitchen means quality finishes and a 10-year workmanship warranty.

Plus, you will be full of Christmas cheer when you realise how straightforward it is putting it together.

Your design, your skills

Building a flatpack kitchen, with our easy-to-follow online process, does not need to be a daunting task, even if you are a relative newcomer to the DIY world. Take it slow, check and re-check important details, ask for help from friends and relatives with DIY experience, and use our online resources to help you each step of the way.

Online resources

If you decide to buy one of our flatpack kitchens, be sure to plan carefully, measure the space and use our various templates such as for an L-shaped or galley kitchen (or another shape that best suits your needs).

You will need to also correctly size the cabinets to your specifications. Don’t forget to watch our online video on how to measure as well as check our online list of dos and don’ts.
