Flat pack furniture is practically a non-optional fixture in modern life. Cheap and cheerful, your favourite furniture store will send you almost all of the components, tools and instructions you need.
To a DIY expert, putting together flat pack furniture may not seem daunting, but getting it right can take experience and patience, and getting it wrong can be costly.
Whether you choose to have a go at assembling flat pack yourself, or bring in an expert, you will need plenty of space. A clean and tidy area, as close as possible to where the object will be situated in your home, can minimise the amount of time needed, in particular by ensuring no components are lost.
And that’s a key thing to do first. Get out all the various screws, nuts, bolts and make sure there aren’t any missing!
When a handyman, joiner or carpenter assembles your flatpack furniture, they can give you the confidence that it has been put together safely, and can even add things like extra adhesive to ensure this.
