Welcome to the newest installment of our Aussie Cut Q&A series. Renovating can be tough so in this article we are giving you access inside the mind of Pat from our Sunshine Coast base.
With a decade of experience in the cabinet making industry, Pat is a reliable source for industry advice. In this interview we’re getting all the exclusive tips and tricks on starting a project, recommendations for flat pack kitchens, how to avoid renovation mishaps and more.
Let’s get into it.
How long have you been in the industry for?
I have been in the industry for around 10 years, spending almost equal parts of time between four cabinet makers. So I have been with Aussie Cut now for 3 years.
What is the one most important thing you think clients should know about starting a renovation?
Ensure that you plan it out. Spend time in the planning phase as it will save money in the long run. If you go to your suppliers prepared, they can give more accurate pricing.
What is your biggest recommendation for potential clients looking for a flat pack kitchen?
Remember no room is square, allow for end panels on the end of cabinetry and scribe panels where a cabinet meets the wall so they can be planned to suit and remember to remove the thickness of the end panel or scribe from the cabinet width.
What is the biggest project mishap you have seen and how can it be avoided? Cutting a kitchen using the wrong measurements. The golden rule is to measure 3 times and cut once!
Thanks Pat for taking the time to chat with us!
