    No experience with them, but am keen to know more about them too.
    There are some other brands around.

    I've never had a problem - and have put together several kitchens (I don't do the benchtops).

    The only time I had a problem was when I lined all the carcasses up for a production line - and screwed all the bases on inside out.

    The only limit you have is due to the standard sizes - but they're pretty easy to cut down if need be - and we sometimes end up getting end panels etc made by actual kitchen places if we want an odd size end.

    Just like anything - the first one took forever and then we've gotten better each time after.

    What other brands do you know of apart from IKEA? I'm referring to flat pack ranges. Interested to find out as well.

    They arent the easiest things to work out though! Ikea would be easier.

    I've never actually done one.
    What is there, Kaboodle/Bunnings (Bunnings has a couple don't they?), Ikea... and... um...

    In Adelaide, @Corey Batt put me onto Amorini kitchens. They are like a factory outlet for kitchens - great quality and cheaper than flat pack. The carcasses come already assembled. I got a decent sized kitchen for about $4500 (minus appliances and installation).

    I bought a bunnings flatpack kitchen back in 2007. Still alive today. As someone above said, the first one is the hardest and it gets easier as you build each cabinet.

    Not a fan of Kaboodle. I dislike the nothing is included model. The previous Flatpax range at least came with runners, hinges, feet etc in the box rather than seperate at gouge prices.

    never purchased but bunnings had a brand marquee or something

    $100 - 1m 2 door cabinets
    $100 - .5m 3 drawer cabinet
    $89 - 2.4m benchtops

    guess 3 1m cabinets +.5m 3 drawer cabinet + 2 benchtops and you have a decent kitchen for $578 not including sink and oven for an ip

    No overhead cupboards ( If it was a cheapo IP/Granny flat id go without)
    From what i was told Hinges and doors feet were included in the marquee not kaboodle
    though as stated did not end up buying one

    I have to do another small kitchen in the next couple of weeks. I didn't want to do it, but the tenant moved out and when I went to check the place out I realised the kitchen was really bad. It left the building on Friday - the day after the tenant.
    I'll be going flatpack and I'll use a place called JPC Kitchens in Sydney (Alexandria). Not the cheapest solution, but there will be some odd sized bits. When I pick it all up, every piece will be very clearly labelled. There will be little plastic bags with different screws for different applications - all labelled. The hardware will all be very good quality.
    I've been getting stuff at this place for years and this would be the 4th kitchen.
    If it was selling the place, I would probably go IKEA or Bunnings.

    We put a bunnings kitchen in at IP in 2010. Still going strong. No issues. We moved into the property for 18 months and moved out last Nov so got to use it ourselves for a decent bit of time. Would use a Bunning one again

    I did a Kaboodle section around one year ago . 900 Pantry and around 2 m of bench .

    First real home reno project for me .

    No major drama's compared with any other kit thing I've done . Labelling , instructions could have been more idiot proof, but happy with end result and at this stage it's strong and square .

    Haven't done any others so can't compare .
