Varieties of wall cabinets
Manufacturers are trying to surprise buyers with the most interesting variations of models of wall cabinets, but there are only a few basic categories into which this furniture is divided. When searching, rely on these options.return to menu ↑
Classic frame option
Classics can be called the most common designs without frills, mainly made of different wood species. They standardly consist of:
- shelves under the book;
- pedestals with stand for television equipment;
- separate racks for dishes.
Such a frame, that is, bonded to each other structure is located along the wall along the same line.
It feels significant its inconvenience that by collecting such a model, you can not somehow change the position of the elements in the composition. Most of all, these walls are suitable for Soviet apartments and styles of classic and vintage.return to menu ↑
The current wall-cabinets look a little different, and much more diverse and convenient: the modular design creates different combinations of elements that are assembled into separate modules. Here a person has the ability to have shelves, both linearly and creating angles. By the way, specifically the angular types of walls are more popular because of their compactness and lightness, given that in large cities the rooms are often small in size.
Modern modules are more diverse.
Obviously, modular constructions are much more functional than classical ones. Here it is possible to select and quickly replace some more inappropriate element of the composition. Such walls are often placed in high-tech fashionable apartments and in children's rooms.return to menu ↑
Walls-slidesSlides call such modular structures that differ in different heights and create a wave pattern, otherwise they are similar to classic wall cabinets.
They really consist of the same elements as the previous variations, but just because of their compactness, the slides are in great demand. Such designs look more original than classical ones and help decorate walls above shelving and shelves.
The walls of the hills differ in different heights and create a wave pattern
Designers love to insert slides into the interiors of high-tech, modern and retro styles. Slides are also different, and it is not for nothing that they will see their possible types:1With sideboard for dishes - in this type of slides, it is standard to have a bedside table or chest of drawers at the bottom of the structure. This creates a separate area where beautiful plates and glasses as well as napkins with tablecloths can be stored. Often also such sideboards have drawers that are used to store cutlery.
Wall-hill with sideboard for dishes2Straight - this slide is the most frequent guest of apartments in Russia. It is standard on the wall and consists of the most classic set of elements. A straight slide wall will best fit into the classic style of interior design, and allow you to place in the guest room a place to store souvenirs, figures and gifts.
The straight slide wall is best suited to the classic style.3Corner - an idea for small rooms that can rationally use extra space in the corner of a room. Often this design is used to store dishes and souvenirs, at least - clothes. Technique like TV will rise here only if you decide to put a very long and long slide that not everyone can afford.

Mini wall for clothes
Already from the name it becomes obvious that this option is very suitable for small apartments and communal apartments. Compact mini-walls consist mainly of shelves with drawers for clothes, but more remarkable is their appearance. Often small structures are specially made non-standard.:
- original convex shapes;
- clear line geometry;
- play on the contrast of different colors.
Suitable for small apartments and communal
Mini-walls will be a wonderful decoration of any living room and will look especially organic in the interior of a studio apartment. By the way, in the latter case, this furniture is also useful in order to separate the two zones in a large room. Mini-walls are just perfect for loft and futurism.return to menu ↑
Corner with cabinets
In principle, this type is quite similar to the angular wall-slide, with the difference that here the modules can be completely any. Corner designs help save space by arranging various things for the owners in cabinets and additional interior elements such as vases with flowers and paintings on their shelves.
Corner construction helps save space
Such moves look really harmonious, without focusing on the wall itself, but organically fitting into the style of the room. By the way, in the case of studios, the zoning effect of the room will also take place here - the corner cabinet-wall will stand as the border between two zones, for example, the living room and the kitchen. Most often in this case, the role of the wall is just a wardrobe.Walls of such an angular type do not stand up well in rooms with low ceilings. Planning with the presence of a not very high corner wall under low ceilings does not help, because roominess will suffer. Return to menu ↑ return to menu
What could be the design?
You practically will not see the monolithic construction of the cabinet-wall now, because it is completely inconvenient in our everyday life. That is why it is necessary to consider different sets of elements in order to find what suits you the most. In the composition can be located:return to menu ↑
Variations can be different: either it is the most classic cabinet, standing in the center of the composition, or a cabinet-case, located on the side. As a standard, various clothes are kept here from jackets to socks, and inside you can find empty space with hooks or a beam for hangers, drawers and shelves. Often, these cabinets are hinged, but many buy instead of them wardrobes with sliding doors with a vertical mirror.

Nightstand with drawers
This is a kind of stand for equipment. On the tabletop most often stand TV, speakers and game console, but everyone can decide what to put there, on their own. This element is standard in the middle of the structure.return to menu ↑

Mezzanines are standardly connected to the rest of the structure with screeds.

We select the style of the room
Obviously, in different apartments, and in different rooms, the overall style of the interior may differ, and the wall should be chosen in conjunction with the design of the rest of the apartment. If your house is decorated in modern style, then you can afford to make such a bright accent. You can find a completely different wall from the rest of the room, but then you have to find a model in bright colors and with an interesting finish.BoardModern - the style of the new generation, which conquered many of its originality. It allows anyone to show their imagination and satisfy desires. By the way, there is often used an additional decor in the form of a diode backlight.
If you are going to stick to the classics, then, as already mentioned, it is worth picking up standard kits from natural wood. It fits well here:
- the Red tree.

Not bad for an additional finish French glass. It is this wall that will look expensive and very elegant, and most importantly, will fit the atmosphere of the room. The nobility of the classics will be emphasized and highlighted with such an elegant decoration.
Model in classic style
In hi-tech tech style, chrome and in general chrome-plated metal as a whole are listed most of all. It is also customary to use glass as a finish, but wood is best avoided - it does not help to achieve the effect of lightness and airiness in furniture design. In addition to the materials, one should not forget about the form of the elements, which should be minimalist, useful and practical, but remain stylish. What is remarkable, similar wall cabinets are much cheaper than classic ones.
As for plastic constructions, they are not used almost anywhere except for non-residential premises, and are often placed in game halls, rest rooms and offices.Plastic walls are simple and convenient, mobile and easily replaced in case of breakage, therefore they are suitable in appearance for office business style. They do not play the role of decorating the room, but only help in the storage of various objects.
For a big roomBoardTry not to buy structures, elements of which are mounted on screws, because such fasteners are too short-lived and unreliable, as evidenced by the reviews. Confirmats will be the best and worthwhile option. Remember that it is impossible to mount even empty wall cabinets to a plasterboard wall. Return to menu return to menu

What should be the decor of your closet?
If all previous versions were obliged to obey the style of the room, then in terms of decor you can roam. First of all, you can try to select elements with a matte and glossy surface at the same time to create a rather interesting contrast. Also, do not forget about the remarkable options like painting on wood or elaborate hand-drawn pattern, which also work well on wood.
A good idea for a decor will be a mirror.BoardThe mirror surface on the cabinet door from the outside will give you the opportunity to easily see yourself in a chosen outfit and allow you to visually increase the space of the apartment, and this will especially work if the mirror is facing the window opening.
This is important for rooms with small sizes, so owners of such should install a high wide mirror, which may require just a closet.
Will visually increase the space of the apartment
Unlike a mirror, glass is used primarily in sideboards. It can be completely transparent, but have a rather pleasant simple pattern, achieved by alternating a transparent surface with a matte one, and the backlight located directly behind the glass will be a worthy addition. Illumination can be realized both with the help of individual bulbs embedded in the board, and with the help of LED strips, if the shelves are too thin.
Furniture has an important role in the interior
Do not forget about accessories, which plays a significant role in the decor. Main emphasis should be placed on the handles of drawers and cabinets - they can be very beautiful carved or unusual:
- iridescent sparkles.
Such pens, depending on the materials from which they are made, carry different messages:
- Bronze fit more for vintage and classic noble stylistics;
- Wooden more comfortable and interesting in terms of finishing;
- Metallic will always look like new and very stylish;
- Glassy look airy and elegant, but not very practical and comfortable;
- Plastic is well suited for constant interaction with them, but not very beautiful.
