3 wall ideas with EKET cabinets

01-Jan-2016
We think EKET cabinets are modular, versatile, creativity-ready storage. Check out our wall storage ideas using different depths and colours. There’s more in EKET series, so you can add doors, feet, legs or rails, too.
EKET open cabinets from IKEA are modular and work almost like building blocks to meet your needs and style. The wall cabinets come in different depths and colours  like blue and grey with add-ons like doors and legs.
You can make custom wall storage with EKET cabinets from IKEA. This solution mixes shades of blue with grey cabinets and a light orange one for pop. The cabinets are grouped in two with a large space between for a display area and side table.
1. The bold divide. Start with a low line of 35 cm deep cabinets at the bottom, so there’s room for storage boxes. Then leave a gap for a display area that doubles as a long side table. Top it off with a mountain-y shape of 25 cm deep cabinets. Mix colours for a striking look.
Modular cabinets like EKET from IKEA make it easy to build custom wall storage like this reverse L-shape against a corner. Shades of blue and grey tie the look together while keeping things interesting. A pop of light orange is playful, too.
2. The focal point. Make a big impression by covering a wall with a giant square of open cabinets. Pick one colour to ‘pop’ and draw attention in the middle. We put 35 cm deep cabinets along the bottom to create a thin display shelf with room for an eye-catching bloom.

3. The corner climber. To build in a corner, start at the bottom with a row of 35 cm deep cabinets for heavier objects. Work up, leaving some surfaces clear to show off larger pieces. Break up the boxiness with an asymmetrical top! Secure all cabinets to the wall, even the bottom row.
