Tim Ebbatson, Kitchen and Bathroom Sales at Myers Building Supplies writes about the differences between flat pack and rigid cabinet types. Flat pack versus rigid is a common question when it comes to home assembly kitchens, but to decide the buyer has to understand the full implications behind either of these choices.
Let’s start with flat pack kitchens. Flat pack has got a reputation for being cheap and fiddly, often coming with few instructions or bits missing. Putting the perceptions aside though, the quality of a flat pack can be fantastic depending on the supplier. At Myers Building Supplies, we offer a flat pack range which is easy to assemble, comes with a solid back and is constructed from 18mm carcase. The range offers 10 co-ordinating carcase finishes which feature on both interior and exterior surfaces. A full range of matching plinths, panels and pilasters are also available which will add to the overall co-ordinated look.
We offer a great range of flat packed kitchens that can suit all purposes, and if it is rigid you want, then we have a great range too. Not just rigid though, true rigid.

The other alternative is rigid. However, the term rigid can still mean one of two things. Many suppliers can state rigid, but the product is still essentially flat packed items pre-assembled using cam and dowelled fixings. The other definition and one that we feature is true rigid. We offer a range which features assembled 18mm cabinets using glue and dowel construction, for no visible fixings. It comes with a solid back panel for extra rigidity, along with a choice of 10 colour co-ordinated carcase finishes.
