Excellent value, great service.
I have installed cupboards & benchtops in a kitchen and a large utility room. Delivery was quick & the assembly & installation was simple with clear instructions in each pack. The rooms have been occupied for 3 years and perform well & look as good as when first installed. I made a warranty claim on some of the doors and the matter was dealt with promptly, courteously and efficiently. Happy

Ten years plus kaboodle.
A Kaboodle 10+ years. Cupboards have just a little wear. Melamine tops still good. Even put my hot pans on them! Planning a freshen up with them.
I installed a gloss white kitchen in 2015, I fit a lot of Kaboodle kitchens and laundry, I contacted Kaboodle over the yellowing of the gloss cabinets, Kaboodle were fantastic and replaced the faulty panels
I have a handyman business, I have done a lot of Kaboodle kitchens, The secret to flat pack kitchens is set out set out set out, get your levels accurate, I find their carcasses good and strong, I found no issues with the new doors, hinges and of a medium quality, I noticed the new hinges for corner base cabinets the quality has improved
I have recommended and installed Kaboodle for a long time, I had to repair installations done my customers themselves, the main issue is levels and incorrect assembly
Four years on later.
Almost four years after installation the kitchen supplied by Bunnings still looks like new and continues to be a pleasure to use.
We have no hesitation in recommending the Kaboodle product.
I am a builder that has installed many kaboodle kitchens. I have found them to be of good quality, well built and easy to fit We had a warranty issue with door colour fade. This was attended to promptly and to our satisfaction. Quite often we will use other benchtops.
15L Door Mount Swing Bin
Purchased a 15L Door mount swing bin. One of the clips which snapped. I've contacted Kaboodle to claim warranty. Kaboodle was prompt and sent me a replacement bin. Excellent Service from their warranty team(Stefano).
Good product and excellent after sale service
Ordered a Kaboodle kitchen through Bunnings. Excellent service from Bunnings and I recommend you have consultant come to your address and do the measuring. You get the fee back when you place your order. Quality of the product was very good but I did have some issues with de-lamination of the coating from some doors and a panel. This was resolved quickly and painlessly. I installed my kitchen and made use of the many videos on YouTube. It would pay to have DIY experience and not be a total klutz with tools. Overall I am very happy with the whol...e process from deciding the type of kitchen through to completion. If you a reasonably priced kitchen then consider this company. All up including a new stove top, sink and both plumbing and electrical this project cost a bit under $10,000.
Outstanding customer service .
I recently had a few minor problems with my Kaboodle Kitchen (corner door hinges and a cupboard door need replacing ). The folks at Kaboodle replaced both for me (even posted them to me ) all they required was the receipts for the purchase of the items . This is outstanding customer service considering I purchased the kitchen nearly 5 years ago (even a statutory warranty is only good for 4 years ).
Absolutely outstanding customer service .
Kaboodle Worked well
Needed a couple of cupboards installed. Heavy ! But great now everything is up and running. DONT get the cupboard insert for the pantry..good quality but was expensive.....and waste of money. Everything else was fine.
Relatively Easy Good Quality DIY Product
The majority of components went together very easily. I would recommend researching and purchasing appropriate saw blades to minimise chipping of any laminate when cutting and a combination drill and countersinking bit. This can add a approximately $150 dollars to the cost of this product providing you already have the appropriate power tools.
The push to open hardware was very fiddly and required some deviation away from the DIY installation instructions so I'd recommend anyone looking to install a kitchen for the first time to use alternativ...e hardware such as standard or soft-close. The product is good quality with solid backs and drawer bases. Customer support was exceptional. 4 stars only due to the issues I faced with the push to open hardware.
We love our Kaboodle kitchen, don't understand all the negativity
We built our own home and used Kaboodle because we couldn't afford to do all of the kitchen at once. We put in the carcasses first, gluing as well of course. It all fit perfectly and was easy to construct and level with the adjustable feet. In contrast, we paid a real cabinet maker for a custom bathroom vanity, and it is actually just chipboard as well, so more expensive doesn't solve the issue of having chipboard but we needed a special size. The gloss white heritage doors did discolour. It was easy to take photos and send a scan of our receip...ts to the wonderful person at Kaboodle who organised a replacement, in heritage style, of every single one of our doors and drawers, even those that were not damaged or affected. It is a higher quality and cleans like a dream! It was a lot of work to refit everything but as we had saved money by simply using white melamine panels between the cabinets, we never had to tear anything out, not even our hair! Photo copy and keep your receipts and call Kaboodle directly. The corner cabinets are horrible however as the Kaboodle hardware is expensive and breaks and does not support the sagging corners that must constantly be adjusted. The instructions regarding the hardware is also inadequate. Also a wire carousal we bought for the corner slides down and is crooked and a waste of money. Buying a sturdy lazy susan base and making a wooden turn table for the other cupboard worked well. We built our own benchtops and waterfalls using Acacia benchtops from Bunnings, solid wood for $99. We picked everything up ourselves, built it ourselves, and can feel proud of the beautiful kitchen that all have admired!
Excellent choice for a rental house
After reading all the review here on Kaboodle, I need to say something on my Kaboodle kitchen installation for my rental house. I ordered my kitchen thru Bunnings Chatswood and they sent out Dave to my place for a quote. It was quick and he showed me the kitchen design after the measuring my kitchen. I was surprised by his professionalism and he was always contactable during installation regarding delivery and choosing installers. The delivery came in two shipments and they did not miss a thing. The handles they charged was $8.5 each and I spen...t $100+ on handles I didn't like so I refunded them and bought nicer one on ebay for $18. The benchtop initially took 3 weeks to cut but was delivered in 1.5 week. Luckily, I found my kitchen installer who installed over a 1000 kitchens for kitchen companies and he was very good at installation and carpentry. He spent four half days to get it installed and he said the quality of the flat pack kitchen is better than Ikea. My old Ikea last 19 years as a rental so hopefully this new will last the same. I sealed all the gaps near the sink as it is a laminate benchtop. The overall result was good and I spent $4000 on the kitchen, $900 for installer, $250 for plumbing and estimate $500 on electrical connection. With better appliances bought elsewhere, the whole kitchen renovation was a lot cheaper than original $15000 quoted by kitchen companies (on cabinets, demo, tiling, installation), which didn't include plumbing/electrical each at extra $900-$3000 per trade. The whole project saved me at least $10000, only that I need to organise it myself for organizing workman on Airtasker, so Kaboodle is great solution if you need a kitchen for rental. If you are looking for a kitchen which last for a long time and less hassle plus you are willing to put money in, go for a designer kitchen. Time spent on the kitchen: from order to 1st delivery about 2 weeks 1-2 weeks on benchtop Installed, plumbing/electrical Overall time on the kitchen: 5 weeks MUST: Book appointment with consultant for a home consultation and put in order on the spot, it saved me so much time and let them do the measurement. Ask them the availability on cabinets and benchtops. Some takes much longer to order. Also find a good kitchen installer, not a handyman or a carpenter.
Happy with our kitchen
The only downside with a white high gloss finish kitchen is you need to keep it clean! However I knew that when we purchased so that was fine. We purchased 3 years ago, everything still looks new and we get compliments on it. The tradie didn't have any issues fitting it and we are still very happy with it. The only negative is we found the price of the accessories expensive for the corner units and I'm not that happy with the handles I chose (squared off brushed steel, not sure if these were Kaboodle or Bunnings to be fair, but they have slight rust stains and I'll probably replace) Pretty much everything was in stock immediately as far as I can remember and the specials came in as advised.
Kitchen warranty met after 7 years
We installed a Kaboodle kitchen in Mar/Apr 2011 and last year, had noticed some doors were 'yellowing'.
We'd contacted our Bunnings store where we purchased the components from and were given a phone number and email to contact.
Several emails and phone calls later, Kaboodle have accepted our warranty claim and are replacing the whole kitchen with a premium egg white gloss premium range for no extra cost. Naturally they wont cover the install cost but I'd rather do it myself anyway.
To those with a similar problem, keep at them. I was like a dog with a bone on this one - determined not to let it go.
FWIW - Natalie at Bunnings Minchinbury was amazing with her followup emails and phone calls.
Questions & Answers
Hi, I have just had a new Kaboodle kitchen installed and have a number of 600mm 2 Drawer Base Cabinet installed. Can you please advise how much weight each draw can hold?
Does any one experienced this .
My bench top is a flat laminate and was replaced a few years ago from gloss as it had faults and stains inside the laminate so They replaced it, I wanted same colour but flat not gloss.
Meanwhile 2 to 3 years later it now always looks dirty like a smudgy ,greasy look and it does not matter how much I clean it with soapy water it just does not go away.
I have contacted Kaboodle waiting for answer, also draw and cupboard does not close properly.
The bench top is a worry, we have no kidds and are so careful.
Appreciate and issues someone else may have had. Thankyou
How do I remove sliders from drawers. Need to remove draws. Cheers
Slide the drawer out as far is it can go and look for a small black lever located on either side of the drawer slide. Pushing this lever down (and up on opposite side) will disengage the slide and allow you to slide the drawer out.
