Expedit shelf outer edges are hollow. You have to attach hinges in the thin partitition walls. You will nead two sizes of doors: 39cm X 79.5cm on the edges of the cabinet and 34,5cm X 79,5cm size in the middle.

Materials: Expedit shelf

Before attaching the doors drill opening holes in every door or use knobs. In my case, holes are 35mm. Holes at the bigger doors are a little farther away from the edges so that the thick edge of the structure won’t show through. Varnish your door with furniture lacquer so you will get the dirt out of them in the future.

    Where did you get the hinges? Were they from IKEA? And if so, the name of them? Definitely going to do this!!

    great idea, that was exactly what i was looking for. Did you buy plain wood or is there a set of doors for Expedit? Thank you,
