Wardrobe hiding wires and fuse





Materials: Billy, Besta, Tombo doors, Grundtal rails, brackets and hinges from hardware store

Description:
In our 1903 apartment we were facing the typical problem of an ugly surface-mounted fuse box that we wanted to hide. As the ceiling is quite high, we couldn’t find a piece furniture tall enough. So we took a Billy bookcase (79 1/2″, 202 cm tall) and fixed it to the wall with metal brackets.

The fuse box is now hidden behind a Tombo door. All the extra wiring for the wifi-hardware is behind the door we built from one of the Billy shelves that we didn’t need anymore.

To complete the wardrobe and get space for all our winter gear and helmets we hung a Besta shelf-unit/height extension (47 1/4″, 120 cm wide) next the Billy, also with Tombo doors. The Besta had to be turned upside down because of the holes for the feet. The rod is made of two Grundtal rails. The Trones shoe storage makes the all-white wardrobe perfect. Unfortunately IKEA has discontinued the white Trones.

    Neat idea. Was just wondering where did you get the brackets from? Are they Ikea? Can you pls give me the product name. Thanks

    Prima Lösung!!
    Wie habt Ihr denn Euren Türöffner ans Billy bekommen? Sehe auch gar keine Kabel die dorthin führen?
    Great Solution. I wonder how you installed your door opener to the Billy , also i can´t see any running cables to the opener.
    Cheers
