Materials: 6 Faktum cabinets (2 80X58 cm, 1 30X58, 2 80X37, and 1 30X37)
Description: This is not a very new hack, cause we’ve seen many Malm, Stolmen or Expedit «structures» for beds here but I really can’t remember if I saw some with Faktum kitchen cabinets… ?
We used different depths of Faktum cabinets for this project. When you have small bedrooms, you are looking for any ideas that could provide place for storage, especially in a kid’s room, for both books, games, old clothes, new clothes etc… So, we first thought … Expedit, as often seen here…
But finally we chose Faktum cabinets, and the main idea is to provide a large depth, as deep as the bed in fact.
For that purpose, we put 37 cm depth cabinets BEHIND 58 cm depth cabinets, so that we have a very important place for storage at the bottom of the bed…
We chose 2 cabinets of 80 cm width with a 30 cm width one in the middle. Then you just have to screw a slatted bed base on the structure, and a mattress, and…that’s it!
