Built in Bedroom Cupboards Design Ideas Having a large room to install your dream wardrobe in is easy. Just add more cupboards than you need but what if youre staying in a flat or a small apartment with a space of only 2.5 meters to work with? Well theres a solution for that as well. The key here is to utilize every inch of space that you possibly can and to do that you need to make your bedroom cupboards wider. Instead of installing five 5mm units next to each other rather fit two 1 meter cupboards and one 500mm cupboard. This will widen the space you need to utilize in your 1 meter units and prevent you from wasting that valuable space you so badly need. Benefits of wider shelving units The benefits of using a 1 meter unit instead of using two 500mm units is that you can fit three items next to each other whereas with a 500mm unit you can only fit one item on a shelf. There will be a bit of space next to each clothing item in the 500mm shelf but it will be wasted space. Creating more space with drawers Drawers are also a great way to great more space when it comes to designing built in bedroom cupboards as all the clothing items stored in a drawer are fully accessible. Like wardrobes drawers are also better utilized when made wider. This obviously doesnt apply to socks and underwear but when using it to store other clothing items like t-shirts and pants or other bigger and wider clothing items it does. Hanging unit design ideas Most bedroom cupboards consists of more hanging space than packing space as most men wear shirts more often than t-shirts. I mean men do spend more time at work than at home these days so it would probably only make sense to have more shirts. Women overall use much more hanging space than packing space as women mostly wear pants suites, dresses, skirts and other items that need to be hung up. Most women also poses a night gown which demands for more hanging space in the cupboard. When designing a mens hanging wardrobe you only really need to place two hanging rods in a unit above one another as a mens shirt or suite jacket is usually short. A womens hanging bedroom unit will have a bit of a different design where the hanging rods will be slit on half. This means that on the left side of the cupboard there will be one hanging rod and on the right side two hanging rods with a divider between the two sections. This will allow the one side to be used for shorter items and the long side for night gowns and longer dresses.
Preparation Is the Key to Painting Cupboards Successfully In thirty years of remodeling cabinets, Ive learned that preparation is one of the most important aspects of painting kitchen or bathroom cupboards. In this article, we will explore a few of the things that can really make a difference in how the painting project will look when it is all done. IMPORTANT: DO NOT RUSH through this renovation. Allowing plenty of time to do it right is essential to the success of having your kitchen or bathroom cupboards look new again. Cleaning the Cupboards Mix a solution of Dawn dish washing detergent and water to wash your cupboards with. The areas around the stove and hood should be gone over several times to ensure that all of the grease buildup is removed. If you are preparing Formica surfaces, you can use lacquer thinner on them to remove grease build-up. Using Wood Putty and Caulking You are going to have to remove the cabinet doors and you should replace all of the hinges, handles or knobs while renovating the cupboards. This is probably going to leave a few holes that will need to be filled with wood filler. You should sand the areas down before placing the filler in the holes and allow sufficient time for it to completely dry. Use the wood filler on every crack and crevice that you can find. You should also caulk around all areas where the cupboards meet the walls, ceiling and floors. Be sure to wipe the access caulking off really well with a damp rag. You only want to fill the void areas. If it is necessary to rinse the rag out a few times because of all of the caulking thats OK. Just get it all off of the cupboards, walls, floor and ceiling. Sanding the Cabinets Once the wood putty is thoroughly dry, sand those areas first so that they are nice and flush. If you need to add more filler, DO NOT omit this step. Every inch of the cupboards should be sanded that will be painted. There is an optional product that can be used here, but you must check with your local paint supply company to ensure that it will work with the materials that your cupboards are made of. You can apply a liquid deglosser that will work almost as good as sanding the cupboards. Granted, you will still need to use sandpaper for the places you applied the putty to. Repeating the Process Once you have cleaned the cupboards, filled all of the blemishes and thoroughly sanded them, repeat all of these steps again. This is known as going over them with a fine-toothed comb. Trust me, this is what makes the difference between the do-it-yourself look or obtaining professional results. Applying the First Coat of Primer Painting the cupboards with a thin coat of primer is the next step. Allow the paint to completely dry. Fill any blemishes with filler and sand them out again. Repeat this process of applying the paint primer, filling flaws and sanding them out until the cupboards are literally "spotless." Now the process of painting the finish coats on the cupboards can begin. Its important to realize that the final coats of paint will only look as good as the surface is underneath. If theres a run, dip, depression or scratch anywhere in the primers surface, the exact same flaw will be seen when the finish coats of paint are applied to the cabinetry.
