What should I do before assembling flat pack furniture?

Before you start to assemble the flat pack furniture, it is important to check that all the pieces are there.

You should refer to the instruction manual, as there will be a list of the parts that are included.

Can you assemble flat pack furniture on your own?

While you may be able to assemble some flat pack furniture on your own, it’s always a good idea to get the help of a friend.

Do you really need instructions for flatpack assembly?

While many of us seem to think we could assemble flat pack furniture without using the instructions, it is highly advised that you follow them. There is nothing worse than assembling an entire table, only to realise that you’ve put one of the legs on the wrong way round. Also, if a piece of furniture is assembled incorrectly, it may be unsafe and could cause harm or injury.

How long does it take to assemble flat pack furniture?

Assembling flatpack furniture can take anywhere between a few minutes to a few hours. If you want to speed up the process, you should invite a friend to help or even hire a handyman. If you do decide to do it alone, stick to the instructions and be patient. After all, it’s better to take your time and get it right, than rush and get it wrong.
