DIY Flatpack Wardrobes

Last Updated Nov 23, 2010 · Written by


Are you in need of new wardrobes for your home but are working to a tight budget?  You can get stylish wardrobes that look just like what the professionals would install with the new generation flatpack wardrobes that are easy for you to install yourself.  Here’s some more info.

What is a Flatpack Wardrobe?

A flatpack wardrobe is a wardrobe kit that comes with all of the necessary components that you need in order to put it together yourself.  This includes the shelves, sides/walls, racks, inserts, bolts, screws, and any other fittings.  You also get a complete set of detailed instructions that will walk you through the whole process of putting it together.  All you should need is some simple tools.

Flatpack wardrobes are suitable for any area of the home – bedrooms, the laundry, the study, the hallway, or even the living areas or garage.  They come in a huge range of sizes and can be custom made.

Benefits of Flatpack Wardrobes

There are several benefits to using flatpack wardrobes in your home.  Firstly, because you are putting them together yourself, you can save yourself the labour costs of having someone do it for you.  This allows you to put the money into some other project in your home or for those optional wardrobe extras you wouldn’t have otherwise been able to afford such as tie racks, belt racks, pull out wire drawers and so on.

Flatpack wardrobes are also surprisingly versatile design wise as you are able to completely custom design them to your needs.  This includes style, colours, door choices, and interior choices, such as shelving, racks, and baskets and so on.  You can use a computerised design service to help you make your choices every step of the way.  An alternative choice is to select from a range of standardised designs that will fit into the space that you have allocated.

Once you have ordered and paid for your flatpack wardrobe, the company will measure and pre-cut everything for you and send out a kit that is ready for assembly.  This kit is delivered to your door, so you don’t have to worry about getting a vehicle to bring it home.
