The storage and whiteboard doors are probably very useful for homeschooling too. If you have children using this, I would recommend anchoring the entire unit securely to the wall at multiply points. Do double check that the anchors sink into the non-hollow sections of the KALLAX.
It was economical for me as I used two whiteboards that I already had.
1. First thing, make sure you use a strong wall mounting kit to secure the KALLAX to the wall. These whiteboard doors will add considerable weight to an already large, high, heavy piece of furniture. This is a safety issue if you have children who may try to climb the KALLAX unit.
2. Use screws to mount all 4 piano hinges to the long sides of the whiteboards.
3. With the help of at least one other person, position the whiteboard on one side of the KALLAX unit. I found it helped to use double sided tape and gaffer tape to hold it in position, even with another person holding it.
