“ Brand: Ikea / Type: Cabinet „
When I moved in the house I'm currently renting, I was very lucky to end up with the ensuite bathroom. Unfortunately that ensuite bathroom was not big enough to swing a cat in and so I searched for a storage solution. I decided to get a high cabinet and they are quite good in small spaces. I wasn't planning on spending much and it exceeded my expectations when I found the Fullen High Cabinet by Ikea.
About the product
The product is an expensive looking cabinet which is white in colour. It stands on four plastic silver legs so it is raised off the ground. It is quite narrow being only 30cm in width and with only a depth of 30cm too, you're not going to fit too much in there. It does have a height of 182cm however which is where the benefit lies. It has a cupboard door and when you open it, you can see three shelves inside. The top half is an open section which have lovely tempered glass shelves which look expensive. You are given three glass shelves and you can choose where to put them and space them to your liking.
Making the product
The product is really quite easy to make. I did it alone without anyone helping and it took me about 30 minutes. I was getting distracted by the X Factor as I made it so it may take even less time than this. Plus I am rubbish with DIY. I used the tools provided as well as my own screwdriver. I found the instructions easy to follow and the whole process was simple. I did manage to put the hinged door on the wrong side but it still works and I managed to throw out the door handle but I can still open it. These are my own silly mistakes! It came with a part to attach it to the wall for stability but as I'm renting, I didn't want to touch the walls. It is still completely sturdy without doing so.
I love this cabinet. I keep my towels in the bottom half and you can fit 2 hand towels on each shelf or one bath towel which is pretty good. I keep things like my shampoo and conditioners etc on the glass shelf and you can fit a lot of toiletries on the shelves. They are sturdy there and the glass can support a lot of weight. It is easy to wipe the cabinet clean with a damp cloth.
This is the best bit about the whole product... The price. It costs £25 which I still can't believe. It looks expensive, classy and it is of a very high quality. There are other things available in the Fullen range which are equally cheap and well worth having a look at. The product can be bought from Ikea or from its online websites.
All in all, this is a lovely high cabinet which looks much more expensive than it is. It was easy to put together and it can hold lots of toiletries and some towels yet only take up a very little space. I am over the moon with this purchase and if I could give it 6 stars, I would.
