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.

The Correct Way to Adjust Cupboard Hinges With Springs iam going to be giving you pointers on how to adjust your kitchen or bathroom vanity cupboard doors that have spring hinges? To recognize if you have this type of hardware, look at the edge of your door. If the mechanism is grooved into the edge of the panel and you can see metal on the exterior, then you have a Y-5 brand "SPRING" hinge. The Y-5 was designed to allow adjustments to be made in three different directions. Tools Needed: • Electric or Cordless Drill • 1/32" Drill Bit • Driver Bit With a Phillips Head • Phillips Screwdriver Take a very detailed look at all of your cabinet doors, paying close attention to what needs to be moved in which direction in order for things to look more uniform. If you have doors that are rubbing together it may be because they were originally made too large. In such cases, it may be necessary to have the doors cut down a little in order for them to close properly. Making the Hinge Adjustments Open a cupboard door and you will notice that there are four screws, two on the cabinet member and two holding the hinge fast to the door. One screw on the cabinet frame is a lock-down or "set" screw that doesnt allow for any adjustment. The other one is inserted into an oblong hole to allow for movement. The same is true for the hinge plate that is fastened to the cupboard door. Only remove the lock-down screw, then loosen the adjustment screw just enough to allow for the door to me moved a little. Leave enough tension on the hinge so that it can be moved, but is not "flopping" loose. Re-tighten the adjustment screw and close the door to see how things look. Continue this process of opening, adjusting and closing the cupboard doors until you are satisfied with your accomplishments. The alterations you are making should be very "minute" on each kitchen or bathroom door. You should relocate two doors by moving them a little rather than moving one door a lot. • Important: If a door is not resting on the face-frame of the cupboard correctly, never try to twist it by using the force of your hands. Always move the hinge plate on the inside of the cupboard frame toward or away from you, either at the top or bottom of the door. Once you are satisfied with your achievements, it is time to drill new holes for the lock down or "set" screws to be repositioned. While drilling these new holes, you will have to adjust the angle of the drill so you miss the original hinge set screw hole. It may be necessary to insert a few wooden toothpicks into the old holes. Be very careful to NOT drill through the cupboard door and ruin the decorative face. You can place a piece of tape on the drill bit to help you gauge how far you should drill. If you know how to make a stop-block, this would be a worthwhile procedure to undertake. Final Steps Tighten the set screws down and you are almost finished. If you need to adjust the location of the cupboard doors a little, its OK to tap them with the palm of your hand. There will be a little tolerance in the hinges even though the set screws are locked in place. Just be sure to NOT use excessive force. A slight tap here or there is OK. I always recommend hiring a professional cabinet maker to adjust cupboard hinges. There are always tricks in every trade that make things go smoother. You can try to do-it-yourself (DYI), but it has been my experience that most people just get frustrated and break something. Never the less, if you are the handy-man type, give it a try.

Cleaning Kitchen Cupboards: Eliminate the Grease, Bring Back the Shine Cleaning kitchen cupboards can be a tough job especially if there is a lot of grease and built up grime. Greasy build-up cannot be avoided in your kitchen and it is actually the worst kind of dirt build-up to clean. Simple wiping will not completely remove it but using certain solutions will help you efficiently clean your cupboards. You know its time to create that solution if your kitchen cupboards look dull, dirty and more importantly feel sticky when touched. Here are some concoctions you can try to help you in cleaning the cupboards. On top of the list is a degreasing dishwashing soap. Dont just use a liquid dishwashing soap but get the one that has a degreasing agent. Ordinary liquid dishwashing soap lacks the ability to remove the cake-on grease on your kitchen cupboards. Do not pour the degreasing dishwashing soap directly to the cupboard as it may damage the finish of your cupboards. When you use it, make sure that you dissolve the dishwashing soap in hot water then use a cleaning sponge to wipe the cupboard. Follow it up with a clean, dry and soft towel. Another option you can use is a washing soda. When you are cleaning kitchen cupboards with washing soda, take the necessary precaution of wearing gloves. Washing soda is made up of sodium carbonate which can be harmful on the skin because of its pH level. This pH level 11 solution is extremely basic and your skin simply cant handle it. You can use a mixture composed of a bucket of warm water and half cup of washing soda to scrub the cupboards. If you dont want the risk of burning yourself with washing soda, you can use a white vinegar solution instead. Aside from degreasing your kitchen cupboards, the white vinegar also has the ability to kill bacteria and germs. You will need a spray bottle when cleaning kitchen cupboards with a white vinegar solution. Spray the cupboards with a mixed solution containing equal parts of warm water and white vinegar. You then have to wipe the cupboard using a sponge or scrub brush it (but not too hard). Do not rinse the white vinegar solution that has been applied but leave it to be air-dried. If your kitchen cupboards are made of wood, make sure that you are brushing or wiping in the same direction of the wood. You also have to polish the wooden cupboard after degreasing it. You can use a wood polish to make the cupboard shine like new again. There are kitchen cleaning products specially formulated for degreasing wood cabinets. You may want to use those products to make sure that you are not using a solution that can end up damaging the quality of your wood. For the heavy grime on your kitchen cupboards, you can make use of common baking soda. But when you do, make sure that you dont mix it with white vinegar as this causes a chemical reaction. If you mix both then you will end up cleaning kitchen cupboards with a bubbly mess.
