Advantages of corner built-in cabinets
The most convenient to use are linear sliding wardrobes. However, there is not enough space to install them in some cases. For this, you have to significantly reduce the depth of the case, which negatively affects capacity. In such cases, instead of basic models, it is advisable to try to design a corner fitted wardrobe that can be placed in a limited space. Such models differ in a number of parameters from furniture with a straight body and a linear front plane.
Advantages of a furniture set built into a corner
Such furniture is used mainly in residential premises – apartments and private cottages. Moreover, there are no restrictions on the use of built-in corner wardrobes – they are installed in hallways, living rooms, bedrooms, and children’s rooms. This modification has many advantages:
- occupy a minimum of space and have maximum capacity;
- allow rational use of available space;
- do not interfere with passage in small spaces;
- with well-designed contents, they are not inferior in functionality to linear sliding wardrobes.
A common disadvantage of all models is the presence of remote, hard-to-reach areas. This drawback is explained by the design features of the corner housing. With a professional approach to the design of the case, it is practically not felt.
Radius built-in corner cabinets: features
Radius models are the most popular models of corner wardrobes. They can have both convex and concave facades. The capacity of the housing depends on the shape of the door leaves. Typically, corner wardrobes with concave facades are installed in cramped spaces and with convex ones – in spacious ones. Models with concave facades have less capacity as the body loses volume.
Both top-hung and bottom-hung sliding mechanisms are suitable for the manufacture of radius sliding wardrobes. Aluminum profile systems are most often used since facades assembled from them are easiest to give the required shape. Horizontal profiles, lower and upper guides are bent on special machines, and materials that are capable of taking the desired shape are chosen as filling. A wide range of different modifications allows you to choose an option that will suit almost any modern interior.
The most convenient are built-in radius wardrobes. After all, with the large depth of the cabinet, it is not easy to get the necessary things from the distant sections, but you can go inside the built-in wardrobe. This is more relevant for models with convex facades. Sliding wardrobes with concave door leaves are much more convenient, so you have to choose between spaciousness and convenient operation.
The body of radius sliding wardrobes can be equipped with racks with shelves, pull-out systems, and even pantographs. However, when designing, it is necessary to take into account the accessibility of departments, as well as the appropriateness of using certain mechanisms. The methods for assembling such cabinets largely depend on their depth.
Sloped built-in cabinets to save space
Beveled (triangular wardrobes) are a simplified version of radius models. In general, both modifications are similar except for the shape of the facade plane. For triangular cabinets, it is flat. To complete these models, you can use both bottom-mounted and top-mounted systems. When installing them, you will only need to adapt the upper and lower guides. To do this, it is enough to cut them on both sides at an angle of 45 degrees. The fronts in the doorway move in exactly the same way as with classic linear sliding wardrobes.
Equipped with sliding systems
The number of sliding facades in each of the two doorways depends on the size of the opening and can vary from one unit to several pieces. To complete such cabinets, top-hung and bottom-mounted systems, which are mounted inside the opening, are best suited. Concealed mounting mechanisms can only be installed in cases where each part of the housing is equipped with at least two facades.
It is recommended to supplement the side racks of corner wardrobes, which are not directly adjacent to the wall, with cantilever ends with radial or beveled shelves. This will give the furniture a complete look and make it more convenient to use. Adding consoles is not required only if the body of the corner wardrobe is small in size, and adding an additional section will negatively affect the spaciousness of the furniture.
