Should you choose DIY?
Of course, it is completely up to you whether you choose the DIY route.
But in our experience, the successful DIY’er is able to do it just as precisely as our installers - the "nice guy" in the video above, though perhaps not as fast as him. The video gives a good indication of the type of challenge it is. The installer in the video has nice tools, but they are not specialised, and could be found in his private toolbox. He puts screws in straight in all types of walls and cuts circular and square holes in cupboards with precision and on the first try, because he's experienced at reading a carpenter's instruction manual. He's an experienced Kvik installer, but he doesn't necessarily have formal carpenter's training, nor is he an electrician, but he can install the kitchen, including all appliances. And so can you if you have the tools, the know-how, a bit of patience and the nerve to do it.
Who should not choose DIY?
Actually our kitchens (or baths or wardrobes) can be successfully installed by men or women, young or old. But if you think your Kvik DIY project will be as easy to assemble as a flatpack bookshelf you pick up at one of those big warehouse places, you'll be unpleasantly surprised. And we wouldn't recommend that you choose DIY.
