Open wardrobe

Materials: Expedit 5×1, Dröna black, Stuva Grundlig, Ledberg

Description: I had a built-in wardrobe with large wood doors.

• I took it apart, stripped all off the wood in order to make a compartment inside the wall.
• I then placed wooden flooring to continue the existing flooring of the bedroom.
• The walls were also painted white and prepared for lightning on the ceiling.

• I hanged a 5×1 white Expedit with a small stainless tube to reinforce it.
• Then I placed white board in several asymmetric positions and the Stuva Grundlig beneath them.
• On the top shelf I put some Dröna boxes, and above it all installed 2 Ledberg sets.

I’m very happy with the result as I gained space in my room and made it prettier.

    I like what you did and because my boyfriend and I did pretty much the same thing. The only difference was we added a sliding glass door to make it look classier, a bit like this: http://www.archiexpo.com/prod/fimes-dei-longoni-di-longoni-g-c/sliding-glass-doors-closet-walk-in-wardrobe-57211-848892.html

    This is very awesome but i don’t agree about its features that it can take away the dust particles away.
