Flat pack cabinets
We have purchased numerous flat pack cabinets over the past few years from Aldi. We have found the quality very good, never had any problem with them. They have been bedside cabinets, chest of drawers and just got the slimline storage drawers. Yes they take time to assemble but at the price of these slimline drawers they are very good. Price wise they are fantastic.
There was a little instruction book with it. Thank you Aldi
Purchased in May 2020 at Wanneroo for $69.99.
White shoe cabinet - poor quality and hard to assemble
Shoe cabinet is not robust for daily use. I had the white with 3 shoe drawers and 1 small top drawer.
The assembly drove me crazy and took hours - I'm used to assembling flat pack furniture and this was easily my worst experience. The main issue is base fittings come loose during use easily which widens the width of cabinet making the drawers hard to use. Repair not possible as trying to move it caused more loose fittings. The cabinet started to have problems within 6 months of purchase. I have avoided Aldi flat pick since and will continue to do so.
Only fits small childrens shoes, don't bother trying to get in men's shoes.
Purchased at ALDI for $90.00.
Worst purchase ever - 2 door storage cabinet / wardrobe
When constructing the cabinet, the boards cracked, they did not square up properly and required a trip to Bunnings for brackets. The doors did not aline. Unfortunately, this site does not allow half-star ratings.
Purchased in October 2019 at ALDI for $150.00.
I was very excited to purchase this cabinet to hide away my husbands shoes. After spending a long time putting it together, I was excited to put my husbands shoes in but unfortunately the shoes didn’t fit. The draws wouldn’t close and only a few pairs would fit in on an angle. Such a waste!
Purchased in August 2019 at ALDI for $49.00.
Shoes do not fit!
None of the shoes of anyone in the house fit. The shoes on the box must be for children. Waste of time and money! Chipboard also split as I was putting it together. I normally love Aldi but this experience has not been a good one.

Great for kids shoes only!
Spent approximately 2 hours assembling this item, instructions were straightforward but when I endeavoured to put my very average size 9 shoes in - I couldn’t close the drawers. Complete waste of time and money.

Only fit for kid shoes
Mine and my husband shoes did not fit and couldn't close the rack. wasted 2 hours assembling it. Also the manual is not that clear while assembling the rack. The look of the rack looking cheap after assembled

Up to 18 shoes if you have tiny feet.
Was wanting something that I could hide away mine and my husband's weekly shoes from the hallway, eg work/gym/outdoor shoes. I can fit max 6 pairs in! I'm a size 10, it doesn't accommodate for hi-top shoes (you have to put them in on an angle) and sandals fall through the bottom gap. If you want to store kids shoes it would be great but otherwise wouldn't recommend. Also cheap flimsy material.

Aldi Flat Pack - Mirror Shoe Cabinet
Recently purchased this product. Unfortunately was left very disappointed. It was made from low grade chip board. Chip board was flakey and has massive borer damage product was very flaked and could not hold screws. Holes where either drilled too small so screws did not fit or holes drilled to large so they just simply turned in holes. The mirror used was extremely heavy and could not be held by side supports. It collapsed more than once. Ripping out screws and splitting Malamine. Cheap product. Do not purchase. Have taken it to the tip..for disposal.
These are made PERFECT so You can put together a PERFECT Cabinet
I have just put together two ALDI RITZ Shoe cabinets. You will need the assembly instructions as putting these together isn't just straight forward. These cabinets have been designed and made to be assembled using excellent quality parts and screws etc. Naturally the first cabinet is always the hardest, as you find out how exactly to put it together. Using only a phillips head screw driver and a rubber mallet and following the instructions exactly, I now have two perfect shoe cabinets. Just make sure the holes [already drilled] in the wood is ...aligned to where the screw goes. Sometimes I had to turn the piece of wood around to align the holes perfectly, and the item will all go together perfectly... I have previously assembled an ALDI 4 DRAWER cabinet and a one drawer french bedside table and they all look professional too... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED BUGBUYER LEE
Cabinet Awareness for Front Load Machines
If you own a Front Load Washing Machine and think it would be easier to access if mounted on a cabinet I would recommend paying a bit extra and purchase a steel cabinet for stability.
The ASKO cabinet is approximately $500.00, but, a similar cabinet from the Good Guys is approximately 1/2 the price.
Aldi had Cabinet Flat Packs out on special and my wife was advised by her Physio to raise up her Front Load Machine to make it easier for her.
Well a NEW Flat Pack entered our home and I set about assembling it for her. It looked professional...
Questions & Answers
How do I remove a drawer from a chest of drawers. It has metal rails on the outsides but no visible levers/ lock etc the bottom has fallen out if the drawer and I can’t get it out to fix it!!
I purchased an Aldi Nordic Filing Cabinet Product number 59598 but I'm missing the instructions.
