Flatpack vs Custom Kitchens

Small Kitchen Designs - Kitchen Designers


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.


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.


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.

The best small kitchen designs focus on function and flow. No matter the size of the kitchen, smart appliance placement can help create a comfortable, workable environment.

Great design dictates that the refrigerator should be near food preparation counters, and that kitchen sinks would be placed next to dishwashers for easy loading.

One of the best designs for small kitchens is the u-shape. The kitchen curves around on itself, making the most of every inch. It also places the essential appliances and elements within reach.

Kitchen Design Layouts

Kitchen Designs - Storage Solutions

Kitchen Design Layouts

With kitchen design layouts, the size and shape of the room will often dictate the kitchen layout. In larger rooms there are more options to consider.

Typical kitchen design layouts are Galley Kitchen, L-shaped Kitchen , or U-shaped Kitchen, and may include islands, breakfast bars, and dining areas.

Most kitchen remodelling designs are a variation on one of these examples. Typical kitchen layouts are shown with “work triangles” indicating the possible positioning of appliances.

L-Shaped Kitchen Layout

An L-shaped Kitchen layout has cabinets along all or part of two adjoining walls. In a larger kitchen this may allow room for a dining area in the kitchen. This kitchen layout provides ample storage space and floor space and is therefore ideal for a busy family life.

Kitchen Designs: U-Shaped Kitchen Layout

In an U-shaped kitchen layout, the cabinets cover three walls, and in a larger room one length of the U may be used as a breakfast bar. In small kitchens, this layout provides maximum storage and appliance capacity, but standing room is limited. It is best to keep the refrigerator close to the door.

Kitchen Designs: Galley Kitchen Layout

A galley kitchen layout uses straight runs of cabinets on opposing walls in a narrow kitchen. As in the U-shaped kitchen layout above, floor space may be limited, but wall space is used to its maximum potential.
