Contemporary DIY Kitchen Solutions
Flat Pack Kitchen Designs
Our soft close cabinets come in a huge range of sizes, from small corner storage to large freestanding cabinets. They can be delivered flat packed for you to build and install at home, or we can assemble your cabinets in the workshop and deliver them ready to hang.
Unlike standardised modular kitchens, a bespoke flat pack kitchen is designed by you, so the finished product is exactly what you want. The KBL Remodelling Team will guide you through the design and ordering process, and 1-2 weeks later you will have your flat pack kitchen cabinets ready to install.
All KBL Remodelling custom flat pack kitchen cabinets are made right here in our Osborne Park factory.
What are the benefits of a flat pack kitchen?
There are endless benefits to choosing a flat pack kitchen. What attracts most people to a flat pack is the cost savings. By taking on the DIY kitchen challenge you’ll be saving money on contractors and labourers. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of having created you own kitchen.
Custom Self-Installed Kitchens
We can design you a kitchen based on your style and budget and will help you by supplying the pieces you need to install your very own DIY cabinets. Like a flat pack kitchen, self installed kitchens are a great way to save money. Your kitchen will be filled with your personality and style once we create your own unique design and install it yourself.
Installing your own cabinets will require some handyman skills, but one of the best things about having KBL Remodelling create your DIY cabinets is that we can help anywhere from a little bit to a lot, depending on your skill level.
We can create a single cupboard all the way up to a full kitchen or laundry storage package, it’s all up to you and your needs.
Other Kitchen Design Considerations
Kitchen Bench Tops
For kitchen bench tops you can choose between quartz, laminate and granite. With plenty of options, quartz is the most popular choice for modern kitchens. The most popular brands are Ceasar Stone, Smart Stone and Q stone. Once you’ve selected the brand and look that works for you, quartz also offers a range of categories – standard, deluxe, premium, super natural and super super natural.
Most bench tops are 40mm, but can easily be made to 20mm where customers are on a tighter budget.
Another important choice in creating your kitchen bench top is how your sink will sit. Flush mount sinks, undermount sinks and Belfast sinks (otherwise known as Butler sinks) are three types to choose from. Which one is best for you depends on budget and style preferences and we’re here to help you choose the best option for your new kitchen.
A popular, newer look for kitchen bench tops is waterfall edges. This refers to the option of having the countertop material extend all the way down the side of an island or cabinet to the floor. As well as giving a modern look, many people find waterfall edges to be easier to clean and give some protection to their cabinets.
Stone is becoming a more popular choice of material for splashbacks, along with tiles. If your older tiles make your kitchen look outdated, this can easily be fixed by replacing them with modern, patterned tiles for a touch of class. Or consider using clear toughened glass for utility in a busy family kitchen.
White Goods and Kitchen Appliances
Choosing the right appliances for your kitchen can be tricky business. We can give you the measurements you need to ensure you purchase the best fitting white goods. Once you’ve ordered your cabinets it can take up to three weeks for them to arrive. It’s therefore very important to co-ordinate this timing with your white goods and kitchen appliance supplier. It’s also important to consider that some white goods, such as a dishwasher, may require a more intricate installation than just being plugged into the wall. You may need to consider hiring a qualified tradesperson such as a plumber or electrician to assist you.
For many people hardware is where they find the most decisions need to be made. There are many varieties, types and styles of handles on offer, so it’s important to do your research and find out which ones will match your kitchen. Push/pull cabinets that omit handles entirely are becoming an increasingly popular option for those seeking a modern, minimalist look to their kitchen. Handles with timber inserts offer a more traditional look – brass and black plus chrome and stainless steel handles are all popular and available to order through KBL Remodelling. We can suggest which handles will suit your cabinet design, or they can be chosen separately.
Hinges and Draw Runners
We use soft closing hinges and draw runners from world renowned German brand, Blum. They come with a lifetime warranty and are the superior option to non-self-closing hinges available through other suppliers.
Kitchen Installation: What You Need To Know
While you don’t need to be a master builder to construct your DIY kitchen, having some skill or prior experience in DIY or flat packs will definitely help. Weekend warrior handyman skills are a good start, but we always suggest that you have someone with competent carpentry skills on the team if you are installing a DIY kitchen.
Construction time can range from a few hours to a couple of days depending on your design. We can let you know more when we help you design your own dream DIY kitchen. If you are handy with a hammer and drill, you will be enjoying your brand-new kitchen by the end of the weekend.
