CREATE YOUR OWN FURNITURES

BUILD A CLOSET

build-a-closet

A large storage space from floor to ceiling, no wasted space.

Even on a slopping ceiling or under a staircase, the construction is simple.

Create shelves, and adjust the dimensions to your needs.

For finishes, sliding doors can be installed, available as a kit, doors can be cut if necessary.

Optimise space from floor to ceiling


LAYOUT
The plan represents a construction on a slopping ceiling. For a straight construction, the technique is simpler, the vertical studs are crimped to the ceiling track stud, as on the lower part of the closet.

 If necessary, a small piece of metal stud can be added to lower the height of the horizontal stud.

Leave a space between the shelves and the closet front for the sliding doors.
2 small blocks are used to assemble the shelves' horizontal studs as per picture on the right.
Track-studs are fixed on the floor and then crimped to the C-studs.
See details at Kinook for beginners.

Construction stages

Constructions with the Kinook system are built from the bottom up:
  • Fix the studs into the wall.
  • Assemble the bottom level of the metallic structure.
  • Adjust the space between the shelves and the closet front to allow enough room for the 

    sliding doors.

  • Cut and fix lower panels (yellow on picture on the right).
These panels are key as they secure the entire structure once screwed into the studs. They not only strengthen the structure, but also support its entire weight. Make sure you size these panels properly and choose the correct material (wood, plasterboard etc ...).

  • Install the shelf's horizontal panels.

  • Note: Wood can be used for the top panel (support heavy weight), plasterboard can be used for the lower one.

  • Build the next levels in the same way.
