Bringing the Kitchen into the Bedroom
Materials: Akurum/Adel with Komplement wire baskets
Description: The beautiful warm wood finish of the ADEL kitchen door and drawer fronts suited our master bedroom decor better than any of the finishes in the PAX closet line. So we decided to make our bedroom closet out of kitchen cabinets. But the AKURUM kitchen cabinets didn’t have any of the closet accessories such as the wire basket drawers and hanger rods.
We combined 3 AKURUM High Cabinets with 2 drawers. The center cabinet is a TV/media center and is flanked on either side by clothing closet cabinets.
Since the AKURUM interiors are 1/2 inch wider than the KOMPLEMENT closet fixtures we had to add 1/4 inch plastic spacers (found at any hardware store) to get the wire drawers and hanger rods to fit inside the AKURUM cabinets.
