When you buy a timber partition from Karem Woodcraft, you don’t have to worry about working out how to fit them in your home because we provide a free installation guide. Simply follow the step-by-step instructions in our how-to guide and you’ll be able to install your new timber wall partition in no time at all.
Before you get started on the installation of your timber partition wall, you’ll need to complete the following preparatory tasks:

  • Gather Tools and Materials – Your first task is to assemble the tools and materials you need for the job. If you purchased your timber slat partition kit from us, you’ll find all the materials in the kit, ready to install.
  • Clear the Room – Move or remove any furniture that will be in the way, along with any of your belongings that you don’t want to get covered in sawdust.
  • Acquire Necessary PPE – Putting up a new timber slat partition wall is not a particularly dangerous procedure but we suggest you wear recommended PPE gear, including abrasive-resistant gloves and safety goggles.
  • Take Accurate Measurements – The old maxim of measure twice and cut once is rooted in good sense. Accurate measurements are key to the success of any home DIY project, including the installation of a new timber partition.

Once you have completed all these tasks, simply follow the instructions in our guide. Our timber room dividers have been designed with ease of installation in mind so any DIY enthusiast should be able to fit them without any issues.

Here you will find all our External Timber Stair Guides.

Fitting external timber stairs in your home may sound like a very complex project but with our handy guides and your DIY experience, it should be well within your capabilities.

Armed with these figures and your choice of timber, you will be ready to place your order with confidence.

Once your modern timber stairs arrive, you can then refer to our comprehensive guides on how to build external timber stairs in Australia. These guides cover every aspect of the installation of external timber stairs, balustrades and handrails in Australian homes.

Whether you order one of our beautiful Merbau stair kits or another one of our stair kits, you will be able to install them with ease by following the simple step-by-step instructions.

Accurate measurements are of vital importance when tackling any sort of DIY project but they are especially crucial when ordering and installing products such as full-circle window architraves and curved awning rafters for period or period-style properties in Australia. For this reason, we recommend that you measure everything at least twice, both before and after placing your order. In this way, you can avoid making costly mistakes at the installation stage of your project.
