Materials: FAKTUM

When I decided that Faktum will become my kitchen furniture I faced a problem that there is no corner cabinet for sink. There were only two possible choices for corner cabinet: 90 by 90 cm and 120 by 60 cm. I went with the latter. First I decided that I have to shorten the cabinet by 20 cm – to 100 cm. I cut three elements: bottom base and those two upper joints.


Then I connected them with the side using confirmat screws – one for each top joint and three for the bottom.


I decided that it would be useful to have big, high drawer for trash bin so I mounted 40cm Rationell drawer on the bottom. I used some brackets I have left in my inventory to mount it to the bottom of the drawer.


I have replaced not visible front of the cabinet with cheapest white matte 60 cm Harlig door because original part has some holes drilled in it. Today I would rather use cover panel matching the style of the doors (white high-gloss Abstrakt). I cut a hole in the side so all the necessary pipes can go through. I have also added a 4 x 4 cm wooden bar to support the weight of the worktop.


I have put a custom wooden worktop on the cabinets and this is how the final result looks like.

    Great project! But can’t you simply mount the drawer to the bottom of the faktum cabinet out-of-the-box? Or is it just for mouting it to the sides of the cabinet (we want to do the same for our trash bin cabinet).

    Thanks in advance for the answer!
