FLATPACK VS CUSTOM KITCHENS – Why choose CUSTOM DESIGNED KITCHENS
The two main reasons people may choose to go for a flat-pack kitchen or pre-made cabinets option, is because they think a custom option is not within their reach financially.
This is not necessarily true. One can still achieve a very affordable custom made kitchen giving you the result you were hoping to achieve within the available budget.
WHAT ARE THE MAIN FLAT PACK ISSUES?
Flatpack or pre-made kitchens often mean white, white and more white, but the design options today with custom designed kitchens are virtually endless.
When you choose flatpack or pre-made kitchens, you often miss out on the choice when it comes to customisation for options like cabinet facings, bench top sizes and materials.
You have to stick to standard cabinet sizing which causes voids and then requires ﬁllers to be used to hide any unused space.
You are limited to the style of cabinets, products and materials set by the ﬂat-pack company.
You often have to project manage and complete the installation of the cabinetry yourself, including organising all the trades.
Once the cabinets are in place, you still have to Install the bench-top. This is harder than it looks, because walls are rarely flat or square.
Install the sink and hook up the plumbing. Plumbing can only be done by a licensed plumber, so you’ll need some help with this.
Hook up the electricity and/or gas. Here again, you’ll need licensed trades to help you. By law, you can’t do electrical work or gas fitting without a license.
REASONS FOR CUSTOM DESIGNED CABINETRY IN THE KITCHEN:
Custom made kitchens allow you to utilise every nook and cranny, avoid wasted space, all while offering value for money, workmanship warranties for installation.
Custom designed kitchens are the best option to maximise space and practically.
Custom made kitchens can be designed to complement the look and feel of your house, by adding superior materials that ﬂat pack options fall short of.
Working with design professionals, cabinet makers, licensed trades and specialist suppliers, offers you peace of mind with the provision of workmanship warranties for installation, and product warranties.
The installation costs can be cheaper with custom made cabinetry because you’re not paying trades people to modify pre made cabinets to have them fit your space.
