very poor quality and customer service
Most panels in our delivery required cleaning due to hot melt glue from the packaging.
Many panels were chipped.
Some panels were scratched.
After 4 sets of replacement parts were no better than the poor quality originals the quality issues have been resolved. This has taken 10 weeks.
According to the state manager we bought an entry level kitchen that most rental property owners would put up with. Very disappointing.
Suited my small kitchenette
I recently wanted to install a small kitchenette in our granny flat and didn't want an expensive option. It appears to me that Kaboodle have 2 options available at Bunnings - the first are more expensive flatpacks (in the green boxes) where you select each item separately from doors to colours etc. The second (in a plain white box next to them) is what I bought - branded as "Flatpax" but owned by Kaboodle. They are very generic white cupboards, drawers etc, but each kit contains the entire contents to make each piece, from door handles to screw...s etc. I didn't put them together myself, but my Dad advised it was very easy to do if you have some knowhow in this regard. I paid approximately $140 for each 2 door floor cabinet I used and $120 for each 2 door wall cabinet. I think they also have bench tops but I would avoid these cheap ones as I don't think they would wear very well. I'm very happy with how they look and work and think they would suit someone who is after a more budget friendly kitchen, especially if they are capable of doing it themselves. I liked the option of this kit over the others as it was much more user friendly as you don't have to make so many choices about each individual component.
My biggest mistake
Bunnings measured wrong. Mmmm. Kaboodle cabinet skeletons went together very easy to do. Issue is with the Heritage drawer fronts and all door panels. They are all BOWED. Even after going for replacements at the local Bunnings and removing the new stock from there packaging. Every panel has a bow in it. Kaboodle says that a bow tolerance is allowed. Had we known that in the first place we definitely wouldn't have purchased at $7,000. Kaboodle hand balled it back to Bunnings so we could get a refund on those doors and fronts. "They bow because of that they are routed " Kaboodles' reply. What a load of garbage. Decided to go solid white gloss instead, guess what, all bowed.
