Inner Bedroom Cupboard Design Ideas Most bedroom cupboards consist of some basic shelving units to pack socks, underwear and t-shirts and some hanging units to hang up shirts, gowns and jackets. Some wardrobes will on the odd occasion even have a unit thats half shelving and the other half hanging. This type of unit is called a combination unit or combo unit for short. While the basic wardrobe cabinets are perfect for packing solutions there are many other ideas you can incorporate into the design of your cupboards. Lets look at a few ideas that will make your life both much easier and luxurious when using your bedroom cupboards. Adding Drawers There are two types of drawers you can fit into your wardrobe units. The inner drawer and the external drawer. The inner drawer is fitted inside the bedroom unit behind the door and can only be pulled out once the door is open. The external drawer can be opened from the outside of the cupboard and has a drawer front with handle thats flush with the doors of the cupboard.The inner drawer runner has to be fitted with drawer runner spaces so the drawer misses the doors hinges when it is opened. Drawers are ideal for packing socks, underwear and other clothing items that are often used as its easy to access those item. Open the door and pull out the drawer, its that easy. No more digging behind a pile of shirts to get to the one that you want to wear, every item in the drawer is visible at a birds eye. Fitting A Shoe Drawer Rack A Shoe drawer rack is very handy to store shoes on and slides out when you want to get a pair. It is fitted with a ball bearing extension runner so that the entire shoe rack protrudes out the cupboard when pulled out. Shoe drawer racks are usually manufactured out of stainless steel but can be made out of chipboard as well to match the interior color of your wardrobe. Install Pullout Hanging Rod Although most bedroom cupboards are fitted with fixed aluminium or stainless steel hanging rods pullout hanging rods are far better to use. A pullout hanging rod is used to hang clothes on but the rod itself is spring loaded to pull back up into its original position when pulled down to access clothes. The rod has a pole attached to it which is used to pull the rod down from its fixed position and push it back up again when youre finish using it. Pullout hanging rods are useful for accessing clothes hanging up that are hard to reach. It also makes your cupboard look super modern inside and although its quite an expensive asset to have in your bedroom its worth every penny.

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.
