In the world of cabinetry, the terms "flat pack"  and "custom" each represent a different approach to outfitting a space with storage solutions. However, a "custom flat pack" may just be the perfect in-between option for homeowners and DIY, while also being a great solution for tradies and cabinet makers themselves.


Flat pack cabinetry, the kind you might pick up off the shelf at your local home-improvement store, offers a wallet-friendly option for the DIY enthusiast and a quick fix for a handyman. However, these kits come in predetermined sizes and finishes, which can feel like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole in spaces that don’t conform to standard dimensions. They’re the ready-to-wear of the furniture world—accessible and affordable but often lacking that tailored fit.

The All Inclusive

On the other end of the spectrum lies the bespoke, full design-to-installation option that is often appealing to homeowners as an alternative to a DIY approach.

These are the haute couture of the cabinet world; everything is made to measure and the possibilities are endless. A custom approach offers a luxury finish with materials and craftsmanship tailored to your exact specifications. The trade-off? Depending on the custom nature, this is typically a more expensive route, comes with a longer lead time, and may require a more complex design and manufacturing process.

The Perfect Inbetween

Nestled comfortably in the middle is custom flat pack cabinetry. This option is the sweet spot for many, as it blends the affordability of flat pack with the tailored experience of custom work. Custom flat packs are designed to specific dimensions that fit unique spaces like a glove, without the high price tag often associated with fully bespoke services. The added beauty of this choice is that many Australian cut to size factories offer custom flat pack solutions, ensuring a product made with quality materials and craftsmanship that’s set to stand the test of time. Unlike some off-the-shelf options that may compromise on quality for cost, custom flat packs from these local manufacturers provide a reliable, high-quality alternative that’s both accessible and personalised.
