Repeat the process of painting the kitchen cupboards and doors with the primer until all areas have had two coats applied. Once the primer is completely dry, you may lightly sand all areas where ever necessary. 10. Paint two finish coats on the cupboards and the doors. 11. Hang the doors on the cabinets and insert the drawers back into their proper locations. 12. Install the old or new handles/knobs on the cabinet doors.

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.
