Flat Pack Vs Rigid Build Kitchens –
What We Recommend
At Prestons Kitchens, we believe in the highest quality kitchens, no matter the budget. That’s why we won’t compromise on the way your kitchen is put together. Every single one of our units is rigid machine-made, not flat-packed or pre-assembled. But what does this mean?
Flat-pack kitchens, also known as ready-to-assemble kitchens, come in boxes containing all the components needed for assembly. These kits often appeal to homeowners due to their lower upfront cost and the convenience of easy transportation. However, convenience doesn’t always equate to quality, especially in the long run.
One of the primary drawbacks of flat-pack kitchens is the quality of materials. To keep costs low, manufacturers often use cheaper materials for the cabinet structures, which may not withstand the test of time and the wear and tear of daily kitchen activities. Additionally, the assembly process heavily relies on the homeowner’s DIY skills or the quality of the hired assembly service, leading to potential structural issues if not properly put together.
Flat-pack kitchens also often have uncoated edges – making them prone to weakening and blowing.
In contrast, rigid-built kitchens are synonymous with durability and precision. These kitchens are constructed using high-quality materials, which offer superior strength and longevity. The manufacturing process involves the use of advanced machinery, ensuring precise measurements and a flawless finish.
The rigidity of these kitchens comes from their solid construction, eliminating the risk of misalignments or wobbly structures. Moreover, our rigid-build kitchens come with integrated features like soft-close drawers and doors, enhancing the overall user experience and adding a touch of luxury to your space.
