Wall in the living room. drawings, diagrams. DIY wall

Recently, cabinet furniture has become a popular type of home furnishings. This is due to the versatility of the design. There is no need to look for additional furniture components in the form of cabinets, cabinets and chests of drawers, because everything is already in one assembly. There is no need to spend days shopping, looking for furniture sets that match each other in style and size. This is the best way to combine harmonious design and excellent functionality in your living space.

There is no need to look for additional furniture components in the form of cabinets, cabinets and chests of drawers, because everything is already in one assembly.

The advantages of such furniture do not end there. It can combine both a service buffet and a bar, a bookshelf, a cabinet for television equipment, a mirrored dressing table and much more. Some versions of such furniture can be freely combined with each other. They are reminiscent of a construction set, because you can arrange the accessories the way you want. There are also monoblock types, which in pairs bring a strict and conservative contribution to the interior of the room.

This is the best way to combine harmonious design and excellent functionality in your living space.

And its beauty is that, regardless of its apparent bulkiness, it can complement the room with its lightness, or, conversely, ground the interior with clumsy severity. It all depends on the whims of the owner of the furniture product.

There are also monoblock types, which in pairs bring a strict and conservative contribution to the interior of the room.

The main compositional task is to combine the interior of the room into one semantic picture, to bring together scattered containers for household utensils. The main thing in choosing and designing a room is a harmonious design and dimensions suitable for the size of the room.

It all depends on the whims of the owner of the furniture product.

Placement methods in the room

The location of the wall in space depends on the dimensions of the room and the selected cabinet model. Designers distinguish 3 options for placing this type of furniture:

  • direct (linear);
  • corner;
  • U-shaped.

The classic straight (linear) arrangement is suitable for most situations. At the same time, it is worth considering the size of the item itself. Large models are only suitable for large rooms.

The corner arrangement is often used to design a small space or when it is necessary to divide the space into zones. This placement significantly saves space without reducing the functionality of the room.

The U-shaped arrangement is typical for large spaces, using a wall cabinet in the living room, or filling an existing niche. The nature of the placement noticeably “eats up” the usable area.

TV cabinets

When the living room requires a minimal amount of furniture and modern interior design, it is good to make long hanging TV stands and cabinets. They can be located parallel to the cabinet or asymmetrically, and include open shelves for glassware or decor. Such slides are suitable for the living room, where modern interior details are a priority.

Types of walls in the living room

Modern cabinet cabinets offer a whole palette of colors and materials from which the frame and façade of the cabinet will be made. The main difference between modern cabinets is the abandonment of elaborate designs in favor of minimalist trends. Modular ones are gradually replacing cabinet ones, which make it possible to implement more design solutions and produce a wall with any design and design to order.

They are made from the following materials:

  • Wood massif;
  • laminated chipboard;
  • chipboard;
  • MDF;
  • Tempered glass.

On a note! Tempered glass is not as fragile as it seems at first glance. In order to break it, you will have to make a considerable physical effort. Even if broken, it is quite difficult for them to get hurt, since the glass crumbles into small cubic fragments with obtuse angles.

The most commonly used wood materials are:

  • Milk oak;
  • Cherry;
  • Wenge;
  • Red tree;
  • Nut.


The most expensive but durable method. These options are used in homes. Both sandstone and granite are used. Most often, they create a frame base, and then cover it with plasterboard.

The material can be used either from your own production or purchased.

A do-it-yourself slide wall is best made from wood. The variety of this material will allow your imagination to truly unfold, and the many ways to process it guarantee you a quick and high-quality result.

The middle part usually houses racks, display cases, cabinets, shelves for dishes, books, and jewelry.

The wall manufacturing process includes:

  1. Creating a sketch.
  2. Calculation and purchase of materials and components.
  3. Preparation of electrical wiring behind the façade of the future wall.
  4. Assembly of the entire structure.

We wish you fruitful work!

By following the list step by step, you can bring to life a product of any style, reproducing all the planned details.

In general, walls can hide behind a simple device many interesting and varied mechanisms that simplify life and storage of things.

Wall functionality

In order for furniture to bring pleasure from use and simply from its appearance, you need to be very meticulous in its acquisition. Sometimes they choose walls by eye and the first thing that comes to hand, without completely correlating the products with the room and its furnishings. Not every interior will fit a wall with wardrobes for dresses.

Now manufacturers can offer:

  • Walls with compartments for toys;
  • Walls allowing you to combine the kitchen with the living room;
  • Combined type walls;
  • Stylish and original designs.

For practical people who do not like too bright interior items, an excellent choice would be a wall slide, which can visually enlarge the space, which is required for most apartments. Corner walls can be used both for the hall and for other rooms, for example, for a children's room or bedroom. Compact sizes, attractive appearance and versatility will appeal to every buyer.

As for the finishing, there is no particular limitation here, since the doors can be painted or covered:

  • Photo printing;
  • Glass;
  • Plastic;
  • Decorative film.

Designing a sketch from scratch

Has the same meaning as a drawing of a building in architecture. Calculation and arrangement of the exact dimensions of the structure will affect the amount of purchased wood, the compatibility of different parts of the wall, its durability and resistance to mechanical deformation. The drawing should be drawn up taking into account the maximum use of the material, because every centimeter of unused wood is money thrown away. Also, a correctly drawn up drawing in advance, which takes into account all the little details and nuances, will save you from the need to redo or finish it during installation. It is necessary to carefully measure the dimensions and calculate the area of ​​the required material. If you doubt your paper design abilities, it is better to entrust this task to knowledgeable people, because the drawing is the basis of the entire product.

The upper area is usually occupied by mezzanines and cornices, which serve as conductors of lighting.

Important! When measuring, it is necessary to take into account not only length, width and height. A very important parameter is thickness. If you forget about it, you will get a lot of problems with “inconsistency” of drawings.

Speakers or suspended video equipment are sometimes built into the upper tier.

Selection of corner walls

Furniture and wall decoration in the living room, decorated with the same veneer

An original and very bold solution to the combination of colors in the design of a corner wall

Furniture walls in the living room, including corner ones, can be of two types:

  • hull
  • modular

The difference between one type of furniture and another is the presence of a common part, which is a kind of wall island. Cabinet furniture is a wall that has a body, namely side, top and bottom walls. But a modular one is actually a constructor made of wardrobes, bedside tables, chests of drawers, which are located on top of each other and in a row. Thus, modular sets do not have a single common wall.

Built-in corner wall in white

Furniture made from natural wood will last you a very long time

If a wall for the living room is chosen for an ordinary apartment, even with a large footage, most often there is a closet in the corner. There are at least two reasons for this.

  1. In the corner version, the wardrobe, wardrobe or any other, will be much more spacious than usual.
  2. A corner cabinet in the wall can be the highest part, while hiding all the unevenness of the wall.

Cozy seating area, decorated in a modern style

The wall can also zone space in combined rooms

It must be remembered that in a small room you cannot install furniture the entire length of the wall. This will visually reduce the already small size of the room. The best option is for the wall to occupy no more than two-thirds of one of the walls, as well as the adjacent corner.

In large rooms with high ceilings there are practically no restrictions on corner walls

There is only one rule that must be followed unquestioningly: attention to detail. And then the wall will really become a beautiful and appropriate element in the design of the living room

It is necessary to remember the ratio of the height of the wall to the height of the walls and ceiling.

It would be useful to evaluate the ratio of decorative elements to the size of the room, so that furniture details do not get lost against the backdrop of a large space or, conversely, do not look awkward and cumbersome.

There are no rules or restrictions when choosing furniture for corner walls. The classic option is a closet, bookshelf or chest of drawers, which occupy space in the corner.

Contrasting interior of a compact living room

However, you can’t skimp on fittings. This is what will allow you to count on a fairly long service life.

Housing assembly

We assemble each furniture wall module separately. We place the side part on the edge with its front side facing the floor and attach the roof. Then we attach the second sidewall and the bottom of the section. Screw the back wall and turn the module face up. We hang the doors and install the cabinet in place. We insert shelves and drawers. Assembly is complete.

Additional materials for assembly

For high-quality assembly of modules and connecting them to each other, special connecting fittings are required:

  • Confirmat (Euroscrew) – provides a convenient, reliable, most accurate connection of parts to each other by screwing with a hexagon. Allows subsequent disassembly. The disadvantage of the confirmat is that when using it, only through holes are needed (it is not suitable for attaching a table top).
  • Minifix (eccentric coupler) - allows you to connect and disconnect any parts located perpendicular to each other without loosening the fastening. The downside of the minifix is ​​that it requires a special Forstner drill to install it and very precise drilling.
  • A dowel (chopik) is a simple fastening. Holes are drilled in two parts, 2-3 drops of glue in each. A dowel is driven into one of them half the length, the second piece is placed on top. The downside of the dowel is that it is very difficult to separate without damaging the parts.
  • Furniture corner coupler is an easy-to-install, reliable connecting element. A worthy replacement for modern fittings.
  • Intersectional screed – connects furniture modules to each other and ensures structural rigidity.

Functional and stylish corner living room

The smaller the living room space, the more difficult it is to make it comfortable for all family members to live and welcome guests.

Corner furniture is perfect for a small living room because it:

  • Practical;
  • Functional;
  • Mobile.

The hall in the house occupies a special place in the apartment, which is why you need to select furniture, decor and other interior items so that they fit perfectly into the space and become its real decoration. Corner walls look simply excellent and have a number of advantages. Corner walls are very functional because they fit a lot of things and at the same time they take up little free space. This makes it possible to neatly arrange all things on shelves. Due to the fact that the living room fits organically into the interior and is located along the corners, this allows it to merge with the wall and visually unload the free space.

There are several types of corner furniture sets, such as:

  • Modular;
  • Built-in;
  • Frame.

Corner walls, regardless of their design, are distinguished by excellent design. Even the most demanding buyer can choose a product that can fully satisfy all needs.

Round wall in the living room

Such furniture as a wall began to be produced in the 70th year of the last century and since then the products have only improved, become more attractive, functional and, most importantly, they can be purchased to order. It is possible to purchase not standard products for the living room, but designs with or without a wardrobe, as well as of any size. For example, the wall can be round, square, rectangular and corner.

Modern walls can be equipped with a variety of elements:

  1. Shelves;
  2. Built-in bar;
  3. Place for TV;
  4. Showcases and more.

The peculiarity of modern, in particular round walls, is that they do not require very much space, and they are also the most popular in the world. Who would have thought that it was possible to install a round wall? Not straight and not angular, but round. The idea is truly original and it very quickly won the hearts of art lovers.

The wall can be made entirely to order or formed from the provided options at a furniture factory. If you choose the right design, shape, decor and material, the wall will be an excellent addition to any room. Modular walls will never become outdated, never become boring, and certainly never cease to be in demand. When purchasing, you should ask yourself a few questions and decide first of all what the structure is for. If the furniture will be used as a place to store things and accessories, then you should choose a larger cabinet. If the product is required to place accessories, decor and similar products, then the wall must be equipped with a display case and a bar.

Modern walls can be very diverse, but it is important that they do not disturb the harmony in the room and its appearance. Very popular colors are wenge and milky oak or bleached

If you combine them with each other, the wall will become an elegant and graceful element in the room. Corner modular walls, whether round or ordinary, can be very useful and almost universal, as well as equipped with wardrobes for dresses and outerwear. The choice depends only on the buyer and the capabilities of the room. It is much better to entrust the selection of parts to a professional so that he can arrange them as competently and compactly as possible. Modular designs can be supplemented and modified during operation, which allows you to not get used to them and constantly live in an updated interior. You can change them around and not worry about the appearance of the furniture deteriorating, since all the parts are independent of each other. Modular designs cost more than cabinet ones, but the expense is worth it as they are the best.

Making soft walls with your own hands

To make soft panels yourself, you need to prepare the following tools and materials: upholstery material (fabric, leatherette), plywood, buttons, backing, glue, hacksaw, ruler, drill, pencil, stapler, scissors, hook, wire or nylon cord. Choose a flat surface and get to work:

  1. First, cut a piece of plywood to the desired size and shape. It is better to choose plywood 3-5 mm thick.
  2. Make markings for attaching buttons.
  3. Use a drill to make a hole for the buttons. If the element is large, make additional holes for fixing on the wall.
  4. Cut the backing with a knife (foam rubber, padding polyester) to the same size as the base.
  5. Now stick the backing onto the plywood.
  6. Prepare a pattern from upholstery material with an allowance of 5-7 cm to fold onto the back side of the base.
  7. Thread the cord or wire through the button. Using a hook on the back of the base, pull out the cord. Securely secure the button so that it does not sag.
  8. The cord is secured with a stapler.
  9. Now wrap the upholstery material itself behind the base and secure with staples.

Modular walls

I would like to talk about the layout of the wall separately

If you do not want to buy a ready-made set, or like to constantly rearrange in search of the ideal style of the room, you should pay attention to the modular design. Its beauty lies in the interchangeability of individual cabinet elements

The standard layout usually includes:

  1. stand for TV and equipment;
  2. showcase;
  3. wall cabinet;
  4. dresser.

Each of the elements can be either singular or plural.

Basic modules

An equipment cabinet is a stand on which a TV, DVD player or satellite receiver, speaker system and more are displayed. The bedside table can be either stationary or mobile, on wheels. There are both open and closed options.

A showcase is a medium or large sized cabinet equipped with glass fronts. Often it stores expensive dishes, sets, figurines or commemorative medals and cups

If you want to purchase a display case with glass shelves, then pay primary attention to the thickness of the glass and durable fittings

Closed display case for dishes

The glass itself is quite heavy, and when additionally loaded with porcelain and other elements, it can simply crack. The second option is that the shelf holders will not hold up. This is a frequent case when more expensive means better.

Showcase with open shelves

A wall cabinet is a small module, which is also called a mezzanine. It is attached to the wall on brackets or connected to other wall elements with ties. It is customary to store bedding, bedspreads or clothes in it.

Wall cabinet attached to the wall

A chest of drawers is a small module for storing things. It differs from its full-fledged counterpart in its small capacity and modest dimensions. Great for storing underwear, socks, towels and scarves.

Chest of drawers for the living room

Additional modules

Wardrobe – storage for clothes. Since modern living rooms are created in the spirit of minimalism, this wall element is not necessary. Often, outerwear is stored in closets located in the hallway or bedroom. But if you have a one-room apartment or limited square footage, you can additionally order such a module for yourself.

Wall with wardrobe

Bookshelves are a small and shallow cabinet with a large number of niches and shelves. An excellent container for a home library. Additionally, you can order glass doors so that the books remain in their original form longer. In addition, it is excellent protection against dust and dirt.

Mobile module with bookshelves

Corner shelves are small end niches for storing souvenirs. They usually contain framed photographs, magazines, newspapers and memorial figurines.

Corner shelves for souvenirs

Stylistic directions

Corner walls can be designed in completely different stylistic solutions. Some are more in demand, others less. Certain examples can be considered in more detail:

  • Country style is characterized by spaciousness and comfort. In turn, the wall facade can contain photographic printing, floral prints, and carvings. One thing or all together, zoning the space.
  • The high-tech wall features smooth sections that open with a light touch. As a rule, laminated chipboard, MDF (less often plastic) are used for it. The facade has a glossy shine.
  • Artificial materials are also used in Art Nouveau. External characteristics include strict lines, no pretentiousness or excesses.
  • Fusion - walls combine different materials, the style is open to any solutions.

Not all areas that are currently on the market have been considered. A wide range of models will allow you to choose exactly the wall that you like.

Modern L Shaped Living Room Design

The modern stylish L-shaped living room is very comfortable and rational. It ensures smoothness and continuity of furniture lines and at the same time allows you to organize a work area by the window. This allows you to conveniently divide the living room into a dining room and a relaxation area, without radical decisions.

This living room can be designed in a variety of styles, in particular:

  • High tech;
  • Modern;
  • Provence.

The L-shaped living room, made in a modern style, looks especially beautiful, because this shape of the room allows you to place the required amount of furniture without limitation. In addition, you have the opportunity to turn all your ideas into reality and make your living room flawless.

Types of walls by material

Most modern walls have a shiny plastic lining.
Wood walls are often made in a vintage style.

Different materials are used in production. Among them:

  1. MDF. The base is wood dust. It is pressed using a vacuum. The product is strong, durable and harmless;
  2. Chipboard. One of the well-known materials for economy class products. It is based on wood shavings, bonded with a special resin. The product is durable, but you should choose trusted manufacturers;
  3. Fiberboard. These are sheets that are formed using a hot press. The material is necessary to make the product tougher and stronger;
  4. Wood. The base is natural wood, and the models are considered elite. They are expensive, there are different walls, supplemented with glass and metal elements.

Shiny surfaces give the room a futuristic look.

The walls in the living room in the middle have a TV stand.

Are there corner walls for the living room?

As mentioned earlier, the walls for the hall can be very different, but first you should pay attention to their capacity. You shouldn’t put children in corners when there is an opportunity to place beautiful walls there that can bring great benefits

Now you can very easily and simply furnish any corner in the room without harming the interior. What was previously in a prominent place, for example, dishes, dinnerware, books and similar items, can be placed on the shelves and will be in order. If you decorate the room with a floor lamp located near the wall or with hanging lamps, then both the room and the furniture will take on a new and unusual look.

Wall models can be very different:

  1. Frame;
  2. Built-in;
  3. Modular.

Each of these varieties is an excellent and stylish piece of furniture that can become an indispensable product in your home.

Corner walls for the living room

Many people think that walls are not suitable for a hall. However, if you choose the furniture well, the closet can serve as a keeper of important things.

If there is enough space in the living room, you can place a wall that is long with corner cabinets on the sides. Usually this is placed opposite the entrance, so as not to spoil the room. The price also depends on the design of the corner living room.

The newest corner living rooms have the opportunity to place corner cabinets in all corners of the room. The details of such cabinets are unique. This allows you to rearrange the doors so that operation is more convenient.

By painting the item in a flattering and warm color, the room will become more attractive and beautiful. New furniture companies have the opportunity to purchase corner walls at their discretion. Before purchasing, the buyer should look at photos of corner living rooms on the Internet to imagine their future style.

There are almost no restrictions on:

  • style;
  • shade;
  • figure;
  • size;
  • number of elements.

The more famous styles are modern and ultra-modern, because they are well suited for a classic and hi-tech room. The colors may be different: from clear to light.

Darkish colors look strict, while light colors are more romantic. Regardless of the color, the main thing will be the wood material that everyone will like.

Choice for the living room

The wall in the living room can be straight or angular.

Since the living room is the room where family and house guests gather, it must meet several requirements. The closet located in the living room may have a compartment for outerwear and a hanger for simple things. The compartment for outerwear is usually a built-in wardrobe with a crossbar for hangers. It can also be made in the form of hooks on a wooden base.

If the hallway has a closet with a hanger, then in the living room they refuse to have a compartment for outerwear and give preference to open wardrobes. In such models, the upper and lower tier are made with a closed facade. Here owners can store household utensils. And the central tier is made open, placing photographs, sets, souvenirs, and books on it.

On a note! The living room is a room with increased load. Therefore, the material used must be durable; it is better to choose solid wood. This classic option will last for many years.

You can also add a table for tea drinking - they often complete the walls in the living room, and the tables themselves are made modular. They can be easily folded if necessary.


Suitable for façade views. The most economical and pliable material. Drywall slides do not stand out from the overall mass of the wall, being its continuation. Suitable for minimalist design. Combines with large glass planes. The wall can take on almost any design, so electronic devices of different sizes can be built into it. In this type of construction, the most important thing is the correct design of the frame. The entire array rests on it, so the frame must be strong and reliable in structure. It is necessary to draw accurate drawings of the location of the slats and frame profiles. The disadvantages of this option are the fragility of the material. The installation must be approached very carefully.

It is important to understand that the lower tier is a place accessible to children and pets.

Corner walls for the living room: functions

First, you need to decide on the tasks that the wall will perform. Let's look at the most common of them:

  • wall cabinet;
  • display wall;
  • wall-rack.

Corner wall cabinet

It is better that such modular and cabinet designs consist of a large number of wardrobes, chests of drawers and bedside tables of various sizes. Moreover, most likely, the owner will not want all her goods to be visible. Therefore, the best option for a wall for storing things is cabinets with doors. In this option, it is more advisable to place a wardrobe in the corner of the living room. If the room is dark, then this corner can be illuminated with lighter decorative inserts on the doors.

Corner display wall

In this version of the walls, furniture manufacturers often use glazing as the fourth wall or even limit themselves to only three. The undeniable advantage of corner display walls is that they do not weigh down the space and do not look bulky. Another advantage of this type is the variety of styles. There are much more of them here than at the corner wall-cabinet. This allows you to experiment not only with style, but also with form.

Corner display walls are often cabinet walls rather than simply modular. They can have a large enough portion for a TV or audio equipment. Often manufacturers try to combine open wall spaces with cabinets or bedside tables.

Corner shelving wall

Walls - bookcases, like any other walls, can be made in the most bizarre style. Options for shelves with or without doors, with glass or not, up to the ceiling or half the height of the wall are acceptable. Their main advantage is that, if desired, the racks can serve both as a cabinet and as a display case.

In modern walls, designers often provide lighting. You can also choose corner walls with built-in cable management. These are convenient for placing equipment wires. If the wall is made according to an individual design, it is worth considering in advance its proximity to sockets. This will make it easier to place the equipment.

Comfortable work area in living room design

Modular and cabinet furniture for the living room in a corner version is a modern solution to the issue of compact arrangement of the room. At the same time, such walls are the most functional, and they can be made in a variety of styles.


Throughout history, the most popular material in manufacturing has been wood and its analogues in the form of fiberboard, chipboard and plywood of various thicknesses. This is a very versatile method that allows you to make slide walls of any complexity. Wood goes well with other materials, such as glossy and frosted glass, chrome surfaces, metal, gold-plated and silver-plated frames. This material looks great in both modern designs and classic and vintage styles. Wood and fiberboard can be given almost any texture and color. You can do this even without professional machines - with your own hands. The tree also looks great if it is sheathed with plasterboard inserts. In this option, the rear panels are not installed, or they are fixed in the form of a decorative element. You can make a slide wall with your own hands in an unusual style. You can harmoniously dispose of the abundance of cabinet shelves by building a whole labyrinth out of them. The design looks very cozy. Wood is the most pliable option for making a wall with your own hands.

The lower base most often consists of cabinets.

Design features of corner walls

Almost all ready-made living room furniture options have space to accommodate a TV. A TV wall is truly a convenient solution. Also, with the help of corner elements in the living room, you can combine cabinet modules with different functionality. Let's look at the main standard options that can be used in design.

When do you need an additional closet?

Oversized corner cabinets are quite roomy and spacious. They can be used both for their intended purpose (storing things) and as a space for storing bulky items (skis, sleds, strollers, etc.). A wall with a corner wardrobe for the living room can have different dimensions and number of doors: a single-leaf or double-leaf wardrobe with diagonal doors, with corner doors located at right angles, with sliding doors.

Where to put the TV and equipment?

Choosing furniture for a TV in the living room and placing it in the corner makes sense when there is a corner sofa on the opposite side of the room. The large capacity of the corner element with a niche allows you not only to place a large screen, but also all the numerous video and audio equipment if necessary.

Question about placing a library with books

A bookcase with books looks harmonious in the corner walls, but due to its unassuming appearance, it is most often covered with glass. Corner shelving for a home library will visually hide bulky multi-volume books, while allowing you to leave access to books open. For those who don't like open spaces with shelves, there is the option of choosing a corner cabinet with clear or frosted glass doors. Of course, such a corner structure should have straight, not beveled, corners.

Placing a wardrobe in the corner

If the sides of the corner cabinet are more than 1.2 meters and there are two doors, it makes sense to place a wardrobe version of the cabinet with lighting. The wardrobe has no floor and is located directly on the floor covering, so you can walk into it, making access to any corner more convenient. A large wardrobe with an option of up to 1.6 meters on each side will take up very little space in the room, but its internal space will be simply incredible in capacity.

Placement in the corner wall of an office area with a work desk

This accommodation option is suitable for those who need additional space to work on a computer or books, but living conditions do not allow for a separate office. A desktop surface built into the corner with shelves on top and cabinets on the sides can recreate all the functionality of office furniture. Outwardly, this practically does not affect the nobility of the interior of the living room and, on the contrary, makes it more businesslike and modern.

Possibility of dividing the room space into zones

Using a corner slide in the living room, you can divide the space of the room into zones. In the modern version, this is most often achieved with the help of a rack located transversely in the center of one of the walls, from which a number of main modules extend to the side. You can also divide the living room space using a corner wall, which will have a wardrobe with a lightweight version of doors made of frosted glass. Such designs of corner walls are most in demand in studio apartments.

How to secure?

Let's look at the details of self-assembly of the rear part. There are several ways to do this, each of which is suitable in a specific case.

Overlap fastening

The most practical and inexpensive option for this method would be fibreboard (in common parlance “hardboard”). The thickness of the fiberboard should be 3-5 mm. This material is especially suitable for sliding wardrobes. You can also use plywood, OSB and other materials with a flexible structure. You should not use nails for fiberboard or chipboard - fastening with their help is unreliable, and the panel may fall off over time at the slightest impact.

Step-by-step installation instructions:

  1. Assemble the cabinet and open the back according to its size, but 2 mm less on each side. For example, for a structure measuring 1800x700, the fiberboard should be 1798x698 (the base is not taken into account).
  2. Secure the corners of the sheet to the body. Use screws measuring 3x16, 3.5x16 or 4x16 for this.
  3. Screw in the screws along the edges of the sheet. Their exact number depends on the size of the cabinet. For greater strength, the distance between the screws should not be more than 10-15 cm. At this stage, to save money, you can nail a small number of nails measuring 1.2×25 or 1.2×20.

Groove mount

Most often this method is used for kitchen wall units. In this case, the recessed wall does not prevent the cabinet from fitting tightly to the wall and is easily adjustable. This method is also suitable for furniture that is in plain sight. The back part inserted into the groove becomes invisible and the cabinet looks beautiful.

Installation in grooves with additional fixation with corners

Step-by-step instruction:

  1. Pre-make grooves 10 mm deep. in the walls, bottom and roof of the module.
  2. Now secure the back into the grooves. Assembly starts from the bottom and ends with the roof.
  3. If the width of the grooves is too small, you can slightly grind the edges of the back wall.

In the form of an internal insert

This method allows you to secure the back part from the inside without moving the cabinet. Most often used for large and heavy furniture. But a fiberboard sheet is not suitable for this. “Orgalite” demonstrates good strength during tensile deformation, but in this case the entire structure will compress the back wall, so it is better to choose laminated chipboard with a thickness of 6-10 mm, which will withstand such a load.

Step-by-step installation instructions:

  1. Cut the blanks a couple of millimeters smaller than the dimensions of the niches. The remaining clearance will be used for the seal. Do not forget to process the edges of the finished sheets so as not to scratch the inner sides of the walls and shelves;
  2. Before installing the panel, secure 4-8 metal corners in each niche so that the back side of the corner is flush with the end. This way you will place the wall evenly, and it will not fall out on the back side - the corners will hold it inside.
