The small hall in our 1930s house was very messy. A door was not used and there was a little more space for the coat rack. The heating also had to remain. So finding something with the right sizes was not possible. A shallow custom cupboard with plenty of storage space was the solution for clothing, sports equipment, etc.

How did you make the cupboard?

Everything was measured accurately and at OPMAATZAGEN.nl everything was down to the last detail. millimeter cut. Unfortunately, some updating was needed because some walls were very crooked. To stay in the 1930s style, edges were milled. We drew the lines for the construction on the sawn MDF and drilled holes for dowels. Edges milled (for style) and then sealed with Frencken edge sealer. We then assembled and installed the cabinet as a kit. Almost all connections were made with dowels so that the cupboard can easily be dismantled in a different house layout without damage to walls or ceiling.
