Case Study 3
This installation is actually made of four units. At the bottom we have two separate cupboards both with plinths and full skirtings. The longer base cupboard has three sections and was designed and positioned to fit to right hand wall. The fitting 'inset' was increased from the default 18mm to 350mm. This then provides a blank panel to the right of the doors onto which the shorter single section cupboard could fit. This creates the corner detail.
The upper shelving units were created by selecting bookcases without plinths so they could be placed on top of the cupboards. The corner detail was created by using the position and fitting options in the same way as the base cupboards.
"All in all we are very pleased and they fulfil our requirements, as we wanted - particularly the corner bit!"
Just four separate units were designed to make the required installation.
Some people like to go that extra step to really make the project work for them. Combining bookcases, cupboards, drawer units or dressers will transform your room like no other DIY product can.
The four doors were created using the 'Doors' option in the Jali Designer. The customer replaced the door panels with glass. The door panels were removed and used as templates to source the glass locally.
The back panel of the larger bookcase was painted a deep purple to contrast with the white - to a stunning effect.
Creating Corner Units
Combining units in a corner like this really adds a touch of class to the room. Remember you can match the style of your room easily with the Jali Designer.
Step by Step
Follow this step-by-step guide to creating your own corner units! Click here to get started on a cupboard, as shown below. The link will open in a new window, so you can refer to each step as you go!
Select customise a cupboard with plinth to start the design.
Adjust the sizes and design details as required. Set the width to be the full width from the right wall to the left hand edge of the unit.
Section the 'Position' option then select 'Fitted to Right Hand Wall'
This view shows just the sides and top. Now increase the 'inset' width from 18mm to move the right hand side inwards. Adjust it to the depth of the second cupboard. You can edit this later by selecting Insets.
Select 'Cupboard' to see the full front view again.
You now have a blank area to the right of the doors. The smaller cupboard is now designed to fit up to this.
Start a new cupboard design for the smaller unit. Again, select 'Position' but this time with left hand wall fitting. Leave the inset at 18mm.
The skirting and top of the larger cupboard are cut back on site to create a perfect corner detail. The corner void is boxed-in within the three section cupboard.
