    Budget kitchen draw repairs

    Kitchen Fitters

    I can't afford to replace my kitchen units but 2 of my drawers have started to fall apart. The strip on the side of the drawers that go into the runners have fallen apart. Is there a more affordable way of repairing them?

    "Hi Beverley, sorry to hear about your drawers but probably the cheapest way of repairing them would be to add some timber to the inside of the drawer by using PVA glue to bond the drawer back together. Other than this, it would be a case of purchasing new drawer sides, which I'm positive will be more expensive.

    Remove kitchen draw
    Remove draw rail or the draw strip that is loose
    Glue with a 2pk glue
    And reassemble with screws
    Try to place screws in different holes if possible

    Hope that helps

    "Without seeing the kitchen draw, I would say a repair is always possible. Either by replacing the timber side of the draw or the runners on the draw. You don’t need to replace the whole kitchen unit."

    "You can buy complete new drawer boxes and Refit existing drawer fronts to them. It is fairly inexpensive to do this."
