This web site has been created to provide the Trade Professionals
and the DIY Home Handymen with truly customised cabinetry for Kitchens,
laundry, Garage and general Storage, in the shortest possible time
and at a vey low extremely competitive costs..
This Website is not designed to teach the art of Cabinet Making
nor to offer a dedicated “how to” help desk when it comes to Design
and working out the cabinet sizes that are needed.
To order your new cabinetry you specify each cabinet's external
dimensions and a few additional details, such as Additional Shelf(s),
Left- or Righ Hand Door Hang etc.
Our dedicated product support staff can be contacted on: email@example.com
and will be pleased to help you, but they are primarily responsible
for answering on-line ordering questions, general transport logistics
and web based product offerings.
We also offer a low cost ($69) Assistance with your Kitchen Design
Specification - contact firstname.lastname@example.org
But if you have a detailed Kitchen Design with an elevated view that
includes detailed cabinet Height, Width and Depth dimensions, for
example as per
and send this drawing to email@example.com
then we will assist in producing a quotation specification. Please
identify also the required Finish (Melamine, Vinyl Wrap, Poly-urethane),
Shipping Location, Benchtop material etc. as suggested in
Alternatively Fax the details to 02 6241 8068, from
where it will be distributed to a central assistant.
It is expected that anyone buying products from this site has already
a good understanding of basic Cabinet Making principles and methodology.
Our aim at Cabinets on-Demand is to supply a completely customised
flat-pack cabinet that is easy to assemble - but you have to select from
the products on offer.
You will be provided with some documentation about each cabinet, but
because of the unique nature of what we offer, it will not be a
step-by-step guide to assembly.
It is expected that the assembler of the flat-pack cabinetry will
have their own basic Cabinet tools (drill, battery drill, hammer, etc).
It is the users responsibility to ensure that the cabinet is correctly
installed & levelled (fixed into position on-site) and to fix a
cabinet to the wall. It is up to the end user to supply the necessary
fittings and hardware required to do so.
All the cabinets from Cabinets on-Demand will come with the necessary
screws and cams to assemble the cabinet, but not fix it to the wall.
The cabinet parts are all labelled in a logical order to assist
in assembly, please take your time setting (laying out) the cabinet
parts before starting to screw them together. This simple step may save
you a lot of time later.
Each part has a label with a cabinet number on it. The cabinet number
corresponds to the line number of the order that you placed. Once you
have assembled a few flat-pack cabinets, you will find it is very easy
Considerations when asking for a
Cabinetry Designs may be a bit complex - there are
so many options to consider – but our website makes it possible to
bring those options to you, but this is a bit more difficult when
we are just working from a sketch, or even a full Kitchen design plan.
We here at Cabinets on-Demand are quite willing to assist you with
development of a specific Quote but in return we ask for your cooperation
in considering a few options as set out below.
Upon receipt of your answers we will normally be able to provide
a detailed Quote for your consideration within a short period of time.
About Shipment and Delivery costs
Cabinets on-Demand organises the production process from its central
office in Canberra, actual production may take place in our factory
there or at one of our other manufacturing OUTLETs - from where you
can pick-up your cabinetry.
Alternatively we can ship the components in a crate to a convenient
Freight DEPOT close to you (at a reasonable cost) from where you can
pick-up / unpack on a convenient date within office hours.
Home Delivery is also offered but will be at a higher cost and could
provide issues in unloading of sometimes heavy crates.
Therefore I ask you if you can please check on “STEP 1: Select
OUTLET or Depot” (see left most column on one of our website's
Home pages) and advise us your most convenient Outlet or Location,
alternatively your Postcode.
Door/Drawer front & Panel materials and colours.
Please check on “STEP 5: Colours & Profiles” what is your preferred
finish Style and advise us. We can of course give alternative quotes
for different finish options, if required. For further details please
check on “Cost Considerations” (see ‘Top Line on each page’)
We have a range of standard colours but can buy in any Colour/Style
you require (see: “Your Choice” option), at an additional cost, probably
around $150 per Style. The greatest portion of this is the cost of
the Edge taping that comes in rather large and expensive rolls.
Fillers and End-panels
Unless your walls are perfectly straight it is likely that gaps may
appear when affixing cabinets against an exposed wall . Also Fillers
can be nice when cabinets connect in corners, to allow doors to be
opened to 110 degrees. Filler pieces of from 20-50mm are commonly
specified, that can be shaped on site. Please consider this in your
End-panels should be specified where the sides of
cabinets are visible, to cover the plain white melamine carcass and
any screw holes. Normally in the same colour as the Doors etc. but
you can specify a different colour for contrast. Often the sketch/plan
submitted does not consider this.
Cabinets on-Demand at this stage only offers High Pressure Laminate
benchtops, 34mm thick, from any laminate supplier/colour specified
by you, cut to your specifications.
Please have a look at “ – Benchtops” and then click on and read the
“Benchtop Ordering Guidelines”, to ensure you can advise us what postform
front and back edge you want (Bullnose/D-round/Square – no difference
in cost) as well as Left and Right End finishing needed (Unfinished/Square/Rolled/Banana
– cost from $0-$80).
Benchtops also come as Standard, Gloss or Squareform with difference
in costs. Prices are in discrete 1000mm length and now up 610mm in
normal Width sizes.
So we do need your guidance.
Any size is acceptable, for Base units a general Height of 720mm is
assumed if not clearly stated on a plan, with a Width up to 1200mm
aiming at a Bench Height of normally 900mm (assuming a 150mm Kickboards).
A Depth of 580mm is normal with a benchtop of 600mm giving a 20mm
overhang. Wall units are normally 320-350mm in Depth.
We have a nice range of corner cabinetry where you can specify different
Left and Right Hand Width and Depth to suit your needs up to 1000mm
in some cases, for both 90 and 135 degree angles, for floor based
or wall cabinets. Please consider in your design as this is more convenient
then ‘Blind’ cabinets.
Drawers are around 50% greater in cost then the same size cupboards
but also can provide 50% more usable space. Soft-closing slides can
be used ($73 per drawer extra!).
All hinges used are the German engineered precision hinges made by
Hettich – we normally use their standard hardware but do offer ‘soft-closing’
hinges ($6.50 extra/hinge) and ‘push-to-open’ hinges ($25 perDoor!
But you do not need a handle).
For Upper (Wall cabinets) we normally extend the Door by 20mm to serve
as a grip (cost $15 per cabinet).
Kickboards and Facias
Unless specified differently all our floor cabinets have adjustable
plastic legs – either short ones 90 -135mm, or 110-165mm, that are
covered by a Kickboard. As kickboards cover normally more than one
cabinet they can be rather long and may compromise shipment and could
be supplied in appropriate pieces.
Please consider the use of the ‘return’ kickboard – is that needed
(a bit more fiddly in installation) or should an End-panel be extended
to the floor?
By default we use a kickboard height of 150mm and provide them in
extra long lengths suitable for onsite cutting to size, if needed.
Facia boards can also be supplied to cover the cabinet – ceiling space
if ordered specifically, but we do not offer a range of Architraves
to cover the final gap.
I trust these questions are not too onerous and help to identify your
