    Tiling is easy. Just watch a whole bunch of youtube videos. Each one I saw had some tips that the others did not. Put all the tips together and I found it easy to get a great finish! :)

    Thanks for the mini review.
    I'll have to take another look at the Ikea ones.

    One aspect which appealed to me was the painted finish on the Ikea veddinge doors. It is a seamless finish, reminiscent of 2pac paints. I always find that the melamine seams collect dirt and this is also where the water gets in. One of the cheaper new bunnings kitchens I saw had flakes of chipboard poking out between the seams - not a good look for waterproofing.

    I didn't like the look of the Bunnings ones I saw in store, but they were a bit dusty and unclean.
    Would still consider them if I saw decent version in another store.

    I bought and installed a Masters flat pack kitchen last year. Very happy with the whole process. Easy to build and install, good quality and very strong. The bonus was a 24 month interest free deal on all kitchen stuff. I left the bench top to a pro because of out of true walls. He told me that the material that the Bunnings ones are made from can only be imported as a product and not as flat sheets.
    He said where he used to work they did an experiment with different melamine off cuts from the different company's by leaving them in a bucket of water to see which one lasted the longest. Bunnings were the worst and Masters came out on top by a long mark.
    I'll always try and get a Masters job. Providing they stay around?

    Hello anonymous Kaboodle person. People here won't fall for that. Everybody knows that glossy pictures don't always reflect reality. You would be better served addressing some of the comments people have made and explaining what makes Kaboodle better than IKEA and generic flat packs - if they are.

    Yay, budget kitchen royalty!
    Any chance of a group discount?

    I know this is a bit off-topic, but I hope it is useful nonetheless.

    We used a Masters kitchen in our place, and I'd do it again. I believe we spent ~$10k for the cabinetry, handles, soft-close drawer mechanisms, benches and rangehood. I've (hopefully) attached a photos which may give an indication of quality.
