Built-in closet with sliding doors can be called today the most relevant and practical solution for storing clothes and other things in any modern apartment. Such a built-in closet can be installed in virtually any room in the house, because thanks to its design, it can make the most efficient use of all free space, from the floor to the ceiling.
To date, many companies offer to buy from them ready-made wardrobes or to order individually. Of course, this is much more convenient, but the cost of such cabinets, it should be noted, is not small. That is why it is much more practical and economical to make the built-in closet yourself, as they say, with their own hands, the assembly is also simple, and below is a diagram and drawings for clarity. Moreover, it is not so difficult to conduct such a process if we act, naturally, according to some strictly predetermined algorithm. All that is needed to create a high-quality closet is the correct instruction, recommendations with drawings and visual diagrams and a little inspiration, because designing something with your own hands is always an art. The site is repairing your apartment with your own hands, it's all tried to implement it.
Make and assemble the compartment cabinet with your own hands according to the drawings and schemes of
So, the desire to make a simple built-in wardrobe is available - now it is necessary to choose a place for installing the element of built-in furniture. As a rule, in modern apartments for the installation of the cabinet-compartment all sorts of niches and other indentations are allocated, the area of which can not be effectively used to equip other structures. In the event that the existing depth of the construction does not suit something, then you can, using tools, cut a niche.
After the niche, where the closet will be installed in the future, is ready, and all the necessary exact measurements are made, you can start planning the drawings. In general, the appearance, as well as the configuration of the closet depends only on the personal wishes of its owners, but there is some standard, "classic" variation of this element of furniture. Drawings of this particular wardrobe are placed on the photo below.
It should be noted that special attention in the drawing up of the drawings of the wardrobe should be given to such stages as the determination of the distance between the shelves, as well as the calculation of their number. It is necessary to mention the fact that since this model of the closet has doors not up to the ceiling, the upper shelves had to be made slightly smaller in depth in order to provide more convenient access to things.
Arrangement and assembly of the sliding-door wardrobe: the beginning of the work
After the drawings( or even the sketches) are ready, you can safely proceed to the task - the embodiment of what was painted on paper. It is best to begin with the arrangement of the "insides" of the cabinet, namely with the installation of various shelves. For shelves it is best to use the most common laminated chipboard light color( well, or dark, depending on the wishes of the household and the general style of decorating the room).
For fixing the shelves on the wall, it is recommended to use metal corners and screws. Due to the fact that all the necessary measurements were carried out in advance, all the dimensions under the shelves are already available. The depth of the lower shelves, in our case, was 60 cm, and the upper ones( as agreed earlier) are 30 cm. The material and its sawing can be done independently, but it will be best to order both on the most common building base - thus, it will be possible to save considerably, because there is no need to purchase an expensive tool.
Assembling the inner frame of the cabinet-compartment begins with a shelf that is mounted on the floor( it also acts as a floor), after which the walls of the built-in cabinet( sideboards) are fixed to the bottom board and the wall using dowels. Next, a structure consisting of two horizontal, one vertical crossbars and three more cross-members installed vertically is assembled. The main fastening element, on which the whole construction of the built-in closet holds, are the metal corners and the self-cutter, pre-purchased in the building store.
The frame is assembled, it remains to be immersed inside the niche and to fix the upper shelves on the walls. As a result, there are two departments specially adapted for storing outerwear( sweaters, dresses, shirts and other).In addition, one of the shelves can store underwear, and three other shelves can be adapted for a variety of clothes( for example, they can be given under the things of his wife).A wide shelf, which is located in the depth of the cabinet, is divided into three parts, having a somewhat smaller depth. At the very top of the made-up and assembled by your own hands a wardrobe-compartment, a long and narrow shelf is installed where it is very convenient to place all kinds of boxes with shoes, Christmas toys, blankets and other small things and little-used things.
Installation of sliding doors of the compartment with its own hands
After the frame of the built-in closet is completely assembled and installed in the previously prepared niche, it's time to start assembling the sliding doors. It should be noted that the accessories for such doors differ both in value and in quality, and therefore the most optimal option is a strong "medium", that is, furniture that has an average cost. From the accessories for the doors you will need a set of lower and upper rollers, as well as special guides, handles and other elements. To fill the doorway of the wardrobe, you can use some decorative mirror.
The door itself is assembled, and therefore it is necessary to install the guides. The first thing that needs to be paid special attention is diagonals that can cause a lot of trouble. It is best, as they say, to measure 7 times and only once to cut off - carefully to re-check the position of the guides and only then to install them. It should be noted that in addition to the appearance of hated diagonals in the process of installing the lower and upper guide, it is also important not to disturb the installation level of all structural elements. In order to facilitate the installation of the sliding door, it is possible to initially install the upper profile in the rails, and then simply remove it and install it along with the door - this will make it much easier than if the door leaf and the guide were stowed.
Further, it is not superfluous to re-dismantle and assemble the structure. In this way, it will be possible to determine which systems are in need of improvement, as well as to identify malfunctions and deformations. In addition, a thorough re-examination of the assembly process will make it possible to eliminate the possible skewing of the door, which is also important for the normal functioning of the cabinet.
If after installing the door and fully assembling the cabinet an ugly gap is created between the door and the wall, then it needs to be fixed. It is quite simple to do this - the cause of such a malfunction may be the incorrect attachment of the bolt securing the lower rollers to the door leaf. Such a bolt performs not only a creping function, but it can also be used to adjust such slots.
In order to eliminate the defect simply by means of a conventional hexagon that is used to wrap conformances, make the adjustment of this bolt itself so that the gap completely disappears. Such a tool can be purchased in any construction market or store. So the installation is finished.
Make a built-in closet with your own hands, as you can see, is a fairly simple process, for the implementation of which you do not need to have any too special skills and talents. It's enough just to have smartness, "straight hands" and a set of the simplest tools that are available for each owner, as well as drawings and diagrams of the planned product. Also, do not forget the inspiration, because it is the engine of new ideas and all sorts of processes. We hope that it will not be difficult to build and build, and the assembly will be successful!
