Faktum wall cabinet turns into a Cupboard

Description: We wanted to use the space under the roof as storage. Clean, pratical and timeless.

So we bought 2 Faktum cabinets, with 2 doors we liked, some handles and my sweet handy Andy did the job!

He made 2 holes in the open wall, big enough to fit the cabinets.

I putted the cabinets toghether.

He placed them right in the holes.

We painted around the cabinets, placed the doors and the handles…

Tada, practical storage is born!

    Deeper cupboards be good for Duvet/sleeping bags storage. And shelves in side for shoe cupboard/CDs DVD. Brilliant! Wish I had a handy Andy of my own!

    Very fine idea, but it wasn’t necessary for us. We already have some closets.

    Nice, but why not just the doors? Then you would have more strorage: the whole under-the-roof.
