All Kitset Kitchens come with step-by-step assembly instructions, or view our instructional videos online. All cabinets are individually bundled and all parts are labeled, pre-drilled and edged, ready for simple assembly.
Our kitchens have been successfully assembled and installed by customers who have admitted to having not previously handled a screwdriver!
We do however recommend that you have used basic tools.

All of the necessary hardware is included and clearly labeled. Step-by-step assembly instructions and an instructional video are supplied along with the kitchen plan.
