  • Our cabinets come pre-drilled and labeled. Anyone with moderate DIY experience can assemble the cabinets and kitchens. We recommend stacking the flat-pack component’s in groups of their relative numbers against a wall. This makes it easier to find each part when it comes time to assemble. 

  • Because our cabinets are made custom to your measurements to fit your space, hence you shouldn’t need a whole garage full of tools.

    What you need to assemble a cabinet:

    • Drill with a 3mm or 1/8th drill bit
    • Screw gun/ Impact driver or a Drill with a #2 Phillips head screw tip 
    • Combination Square
    • Pencil

  • No Quick Kitchens does not come out to design & Install. But saying that our partner business Northside Kitchens does and services Brisbane to the Sunshine Coast

  • Unlike a lot of flat-pack suppliers, at Quick Kitchens size doesn’t matter, but there are a few standard sizes that not only save you money but will make your kitchen work better too. In general the kitchen industry only work in millimetre’s (mm), hence all measurements on this site reflect.

    Height: is how high the individual cabinet is.

    Depth: is from the wall out.

    Width: is from one side to the other.

    Cabinet Sizes:

    • Kickboard Height: 150mm for kitchens & 100mm for vanity’s.
    • Base Carcass Height: 720mm depending on Benchtop thickness, gives you around the perfect benchtop height.
    • Base Carcass Depth: 560mm is the normal size here, as it works well with 600mm benchtops. Therefore this leaves you with 20mm for the doors and 20mm benchtop overhang.
    • Bench Height: 900mm from the floor works perfectly for most people.
    • Wall Carcass Height: This all depends on you ceiling height, most ceilings are around the 2400mm, hence we tend to make a lot of wall cabinets 650mm high. (however  you can make the cabinets any height you would like to suit your home)
    • Wall Carcass Depth: 300mm works in most cases, you should purchase your range-hood first and make the depth suit it.
    • Tall Carcass Height: 2150mm is a good height if your ceiling are 2400mm high. (yet once again you can order them different size to suit. 
    • Tall Carcass Depth: 580mm is standard as to allow 20mm for the door at the front. This lines up with the benchtop( if you are using a 600mm deep benchtop)
  • To help with cabinet making terminology we have put together this short list of terms.

    Base Cabinet

    • These are sometimes referred to as floor cabinets. Can consist of a drawer, single door, double door, oven, open or  corner.

    Kick Base:

    • Normally a whiteboard ladder frame base which sits on the ground that supports the carcass.

    Adjustable Feet:

    • Are sometimes used instead of a ladder frame kick base to support the carcass. These don’t tend to support the kitchen cabinet and benchtops as well as a properly constructed ladder frame. It all comes down to personal preference’s.

  •  CANOPY RANGE HOOD INSTALLATION

    If you have chosen a canopy range hood of any style, we can recommend the services of a Brisbane based company.

     

    C A RANGEHOODS installing all styles of canopy’s.

    Wall mounted, island style, cassette style, external motor, ceiling motor, Qasair brand, Sirius brand, Schweigen brand etc.

     

    DUCTING SERVICES AVAILABLE roof penetrations, masonry penetrations, plywood wall, external timber, soffit / eve etc.

     

    When ducting a range hood to the atmosphere there are a few things to consider.

     

    Firstly, the style you have chosen and where you think the ducting

    Will run.

    Secondly whether this style is appropriate for your needs and the design of your kitchen.

     

    It is important to research the volume of air you need moved.

    Cubic feet per minute (cfm ) or cubic metres per hour ( m3/h ).

    A range hood that is pushing between 400 m3/h and 800 m3/h is sufficient for a standard cook top.

    Also, noise factor is to be considered for the desired effect. You can look into how many decibels the motor will generate. 60 decibels is equivalent to conversational speech.
