KALLAX and METOD Micro Wardrobe





KALLAX and METOD micro wardrobe

A small space always lacks the luxury of a large corridor. Therefore you have to be creative in storing your clothing. In my case only a small corner less than 1.2m per 0.6m in the corridor was left. Unfortunately there is no suitable solution on the market so I had to build it myself.

I already bought a METOD tall cabinet (902.125.59) to store cleaning materials and mounted it on CAPITA legs (302.443.46). Temporarily we used a hall stand to hang up the coats but that looked always kind of messy. That in mind a cloakroom rail was an obvious choice so I ordered a custom stainless steel pipe. The METOD cabinet already takes up 40cm of the available 1.2m space so doing the math only 80cm are left. Fortunately the 4×4 KALLAX measures only 77cm per 77cm.

1. Assemble the METOD and KALLAX. I raised both on CAPITA legs.
2. A lesson I learned from my previous IKEA hacks is that it is nearly impossible to connect IKEA furniture using wood screws. This time I chose nuts and countersunk bolts to connect the pieces. Overall I needed 8 bolts with a 6mm diameter.

  • 4 x 6cm to connect the METHOD cabinet to the KALLAX
  • 2 x 3cm to connect the METHOD cabinet with the steel pipe
  • 2 x 5cm to connect the KALLAX with thes steel pipe

3. I aligned the KALLAX to the centre of the METOD cabinet. I connected METOD to KALLAX with 4 screws, 2 on each level. Marks 8 holes where you want to connect the 2 cabinets. Drill pilot holes starting with a 3mm drill bit and moving on to 6mm. Be careful with KALLAX. It tends to splinter.
4. For the steel pipe, use the 3cm screws for the METOD and the 5cm for the KALLAX. At first, I was concerned that the steel pipe could be wonky but after the assembly I was quite surprised at how solid the construction is in particular the steel pipe.
