Flatpack Feuds and Decorating Dramas

We have all experienced difficult decorating decisions when living in or owning a property. What colour should we paint the walls or is that wardrobe going to fit through the door? There is usually a lot of work when first moving in – but flatpack furniture is often be a more accessible and affordable option to furnish a home.

While DIY, decor decisions and building flatpacks can all become very stressful on their own, it may also be the first time working together with someone on a project like this. 

Flatpack furniture is sometimes off-putting. 40% of people we surveyed said they would pay for furniture already built. 18% of people have actually paid someone in the past to build their flatpack furniture for them. We offer a flatpack assembly service for those households without the right tools or even time, with the most popular items being wardrobes, beds and even dining tables.

We have surveyed 1,000 UK respondents and asked them questions about their previous experiences with home improvement. Find out below how many people have come close to breaking point and who’s even fallen out with family!
