Flat-pack furniture is a less cumbersome way of buying the desks, cabinets and fixtures your business needs. This requires assembly of the various pieces into a usable form, and this is feasible for anyone with a moderate grasp of basic do-it-yourself procedures. Learn how to assemble your furniture without the need for professional help.
Unpack your office furniture and ensure you have all the necessary components according to the assembly instructions. It is not uncommon for vital parts to be missing from flat-pack furniture upon purchase.
Read through the instructions and establish which additional tools you will require. Flat-pack furniture often comes with miniature tools, such as a hex key, of the appropriate size, but you might also need more tools, such as screwdrivers or a hammer.
Assemble the base of your furniture and ensure that all screws are tightly secured to add strength and establish the integrity of the unit. If no screwdriver or similar tool is supplied, ensure that you have the correct tools for the screw sizes.
Assemble the facings and surfaces of your unit, giving any glued joints time to fully bond and dry.
Cover or fill any exposed fixings with the finishing pieces provided. If no finishings were included, any good hardware store will have equivalents that can give your office furniture a professional finish.
