Want to update the heart of your home without spending a lot of money? Flat-pack kitchens in Sydney are your best bet. They have come a long way in design and quality and can be changed to fit any home style. When it comes to your layout, colors, and finishes, you are the designer. Choose from different finishes for the countertops, cabinets, and floors, and make it your own by choosing the tiles, faucets, and other hardware.
Plan and be patient if you want to put together a flat-pack kitchen. If you don’t like to do things yourself, you might want to spend a little more on installation. Modular means that flat-pack kitchens can be put together in almost any way. But the best part is that they are easy to put together and set up. Let’s get started.
Pick Your Appliances
Before you order your assembled flat-pack kitchens, it’s essential to pick out your appliances so you know the exact sizes that will fit. Also, think about the space and what you need, like a fridge that opens to the right or left. Ask your friends what they think and do some research online to help you make a decision.
Draw Up a Detailed Plan
Now it is time to plan your kitchen layout so that it fits your space and your needs. This means making a detailed plan. You can use online tools from many suppliers. Online planners let you see how your kitchen might look in different ways, colors, and styles. You can choose every detail, so you know what to expect when the real thing comes to life.
Prepare the Space
The next step is to get rid of your old kitchen and fix any problems, like rough walls or floors. If you have stud walls, you’ll need to mark where the studs are so you can screw things to them. Call a plumber and an electrician to do any prep work that needs to be done.
You need to be precise to make custom flat-pack cabinets that work well. Use a spirit level or laser level, a tape measure, and a pencil to mark a horizontal line on the wall where the top of the base cabinets and the bottom of the overhead cabinets will sit. The recommended distance from the floor to the top of the benchtop is 90cm (plus or minus 2cm), and the minimum space between the benchtop and the cabinets above it is 60 to 65cm.
Do not just assume that your walls and floors are square. Measure them carefully and be ready to make some changes.
Time to Install
Unpack your first module and put it together. Start with an overhead corner or end cabinet and work your way across, taking your time to make sure all the edges are flush and square. Next, move on to your base cabinets. Install your benchtop after all the cabinets are in place, and then put the doors, drawers, handles, and kickboards in place. Lastly, hire a pro to finish any extra plumbing or electrical connections.
