A flat pack kitchen is your dream kitchen delivered to you in a box! All of the cabinetry is supplied to you in flat packs, ready to be assembled and installed. Who is a flat pack kitchen ideal for? Well anyone really! As an affordable kitchen option that’s delivered fast, it is perfect for updating a rental property, apartment, for first home owners who want to keep the costs down or anyone who is budget conscious.
There are a few main benefits of ordering a flat pack kitchen, which makes them such a popular choice when people are taking on a new kitchen renovation or rebuild. The main reasons are their affordability, how quick they are to be delivered to start the project, how customisable they are and their quality.
One of the main benefits of taking on a kitchen renovation with a flat pack kitchen is that because it’s D.I.Y., you can save money by installing the cabinetry yourself. This saves you on labour costs, although you will need help from a qualified tradesman when hooking up gas, electricity and water.
The Xpress Range of flat pack kitchens from Kinsman are a budget conscious and still stunning range which you can create the most popular kitchen styles from.
You’ll love how quickly you can get started on installing your new flat pack kitchen. As the fastest solution available, Xpress Range can be delivered just 10 business days after final payment.
Some people think that a flat pack kitchen is a ‘one-size-fits-all’ scenario. But a flat pack kitchen can be as individual as you and your home. There are so many options within the Kinsman Xpress Range so the possibilities are endless. You can choose the cupboard doors, benchtops, cabinet handles, as well as all of the accessories like shelving, racks, cutlery drawers and bins.
Just because it’s delivered to your home in a box, that doesn’t mean that flat pack kitchens aren’t high quality. Where other flat pack kitchens may fall short on quality and features, Xpress Range kitchens are sure to impress.
With 12 door options, 8 laminate benchtop and a variety of Caesarstone tops, as well as a wide selection of handles and accessories, this range has a lot to offer.
So what’s in the flat pack box? Included in your flat pack kitchen boxes are cabinets, handles and kickboards, laminate benchtops, soft-close drawers, soft full extension drawer runners, cutlery trays and bin.
You’ll also find a comprehensive, user-friendly instruction booklet, all the fixings and dowel that you’ll need and it’s all delivered straight to your door. Please note that appliances, sink and taps are sold separately.
This is the fun part of the process. You’ll be amazed at the huge range of choices, finishes, colours and materials that you can choose from. But we’ve been able to break down the design process into three simple steps; choosing the kitchen style, picking your appliances and deciding on your design and layout.
There are many popular styles of kitchen that you can create from a flat pack to suit your home and your taste. The hard part is settling on your favourite style! Here are some of the ones we love at the moment:
The Good Guys always recommend an appliance first approach when creating a new kitchen. That’s because choosing the right size and location of your appliances can save you time and hassle in the long run. A huge new fridge with folding French doors may be an entertainer’s paradise, but you need to make sure you have the room for it. If you love black appliances (and who doesn’t?), it’s a good time to think about how they will fit in to the whole kitchen look and feel you’re creating.
Another important point is that you should also consider where your utilities are when planning your new kitchen, and placing your appliances accordingly. Planning around where your gas, water and electricity connections are will make your new kitchen renovation a lot easier.
Now it’s time to get creative and settle on the design, layout, benchtop, cabinet style and colour of your new perfect kitchen. Add some of your own personal touches to see your style come to life. You’ll be surprised how big a difference you can make by swapping out the handles or cabinetry finishes. Elevate your kitchen design with a with Caesarstone benchtops instead of laminate and see what difference they can make.
If you are having a little trouble deciding on the right look, just ask your Kinsman design expert and they can help bring your design to life.
It’s time to dig your tools out and get your D.I.Y. on. You’ll need a range of tools and materials like a builder’s pencil, caulking gun, clamps, electric drill, measuring tape, step ladder and all of your safety equipment. Kinsman will send you a flat pack installation guide with all of the details and easy to follow steps. You might also want to give a friend a call to help you install your kitchen. You won’t regret it!
Please note, any plumbing, gas and electrical work, such as disconnecting a sink and installing cooktops and ovens, must be done by a qualified tradesperson.
You’re now all set to take on a kitchen renovation or upgrade with a flat pack kitchen.
