Cabinets coupe: how to choose?
Is there any thing in the house more versatile,than the closet? Firstly, it can act as an ordinary wardrobe. Secondly, it is possible to hide whatever they want. Third, the closet can serve as a room divider or niche. In short, a very comfortable and, of course, a useful piece of furniture, and even on top of that - the interior decoration. With painted or severe facades, stained glass or mirrored doors, narrow or wide, "deaf" or open cabinets coupe: how to choose exactly what is functional, comfortable and beautiful at the same time? Let's take a closer look at the most common models and try to identify the main settings, in which you need to make a choice in favor of one or another model coupe cabinet.
What to look for: We consider, feel, move, open-close? First of all we look at the door: how many of them, and as they open. There are models of cabinets with sliding doors, but there are also those in which the doors swing open, or whether they are the side console with semi-circular, rectangular or non-standard shelves. Doors can be a "wood" (or rather of the CPD), glass or mirror. Mirrored doors visually increase the space of the room and make it lighter, glass doors can be transparent, opaque or colored, "deaf" the doors are self-colored or with a picture (today very fashionable). The most optimal width doors - ninety centimeters, wider doors are not very comfortable to use (they are quite heavy).
The color of the cabinet that you choose, also hasconsiderable importance. For example, dark colors are known to absorb a lot of light and make the interior darker. Light wardrobe, on the contrary, will add light in the room and "freshen" the interior. Also pay attention to how the cabinet of ionic or colors will be combined (or contrast) with the color and texture of the door and the floor in the room.
The height of the cabinet. The standard solution in this case - a case "to the ceiling." However, not all high wardrobes are equipped with a mezzanine, and in this case, the upper shelves will be inconvenient to use. So if you're not going to do from the cabinet interior walls, it is possible to pay attention to the model is not very high.
The inner space of the cabinet. As far as its arrangement you like? Is there enough here shelves, boxes and other items? For example, in addition to the shelves for clothes in it can be shelves and supports for footwear (metal structures), bryuchnitsy, trempelya (hangers), laundry basket, pantograph (elevator raises and lowers the bar for hangers). Note the cabinet depth. If you need a roomy closet, its depth should not be less than fifty centimeters.
Of course, all these features are important, especiallyif they fully comply with their function. But the purpose of this can vary depending on where exactly you want to put wardrobe: the hallway, bedroom, children's room, office or living room.
