Usually we make drawer boxes out of 12mm thick Birch Ply which makes for a robust drawer.
Sometimes for the look of a project we offer walnut veneer. This is a 0.5mm thick veneer bonded to 12mm thick MDF and sealed all round so you get the full Walnut look but with the stability of MDF. With a total thickness of 13mm, this material works with both Blum Standard 430 and Blum Movento drawer runners.
The mirror is bonded to the door with mirror adhesive.
You notice that the mirror is a tick smaller than the door so there are no sharp edges to catch.
If you are within the M25, we can arrange sourcing of the mirror as well as the bonding to the door.
If you’re further afield or you’d like to do the job yourself, bring your door into a local glazier for them to cut mirror glass to size. Either ask them to bond the mirror or acquire some mirror adhesive:
Here the client chose Cordoba Olive for the tall and deep floor to (sloping) ceiling cupboard. Tip-on modules on drawer units and doors create a clean look. The cupboard comprises of several large units.
The bottom part of the cupboard is divided between a large cupboard area with shelves behind 2 doors to the left. And 4 large tip-on drawers, with varying depth, getting bigger from top to bottom, large enough to hold big toys.
The upper part of the cupboard comprises of several shelving units behind tip-on doors, as well as a large cubby hole type space, large enough to hold a good sized TV screen.
The doors of the top cabinets are all hinged on the right. Hinging on the left would mean that the doors would hit the ceiling on being opened.
The top door near the wall features 155degree hinges, so to allow the doors to open wide, for easy access.
A tambour door is one that rolls up. This is an ideal solution for a cupboard with items which are frequently used during cooking or baking as content is accessible whilst the door is up – without a door being in the way. Once the tambour door is down, all is hidden and out of sight.
A tambour door works well as well as a door for a wall-hung unit that comes right down on to the worktop – i.e. toaster or kettle on the worktop are quickly hidden behind the roll-up door for a clean-look kitchen counter.
