Kitchen cabinets in bedroom

Materials: Faktum, Nexus

Description: Because we have sloping ceiling, we had problem finding cabinets that fitted by the wall for things like clothes, towels, bedlinen, christmas decorations and so on. I came up with the idea to use same kitchen cabinets that we use in kitchen and laundry.

I put two skirtings lying down on the floor to make a distant for the cabinets, so we can open the drawers.

As you can see the line grow as we had more need of storage. Now the plan is to put in cabinets all the way to the next corner :-)

    We are thinking of doing something similar as just can’t find bedroom cabinets that fit our small space (Also with sloped ceilings!). Was worried it’d look odd but pleased I found your pictures as it looks great :-)

    The transition has been excellent. Well done on making these kitchen cabinet into room cabinets. You can’t tell that they were kitchen cabinets after installation.

    Soon you will see what I´ve done with our laundry!

    I like it! I’ve put the Ikea kitchen cabinets many places (bathroom, office) but never considered the bedroom.

    Very good idea. It looks like custom built-ins.

  10. That looks amazing! I have sloped ceilings in my new place too, I just might have to steal this idea for myself. Do they still have a lot of storage space?
