Besta room divider for a loft

Dividing up the room is a key to good use of space. It also does double duty as storage. Kevin does just that with the Besta in his loft.

It’s for clothes storage and to screen off the bedroom section of the loft. The only problem was the original Besta configurations didn’t fit, being either too tall or short.

Kevin writes, “So instead of using the top cabinet module they offer we used their shorter matching drawer front, attaching them with hinges to a custom built frame we installed on top of the Ikea Besta unit made with basic materials from a hardware store.”

The back half was finished with white mdf panels and turned out to be the perfect place to hang a TV.
