4 Position the shelves
5 Assemble and attach the top cabinet
6 Assemble the base organiser unit

  • Step 1. Install the kickboards

    To attach the front kickboards, tap the locking cams into the holes of the first kickboard. Insert the locking pins into the holes in the shelf. Insert the first kickboard into the locking cams. Turn the cam to lock it into place. Repeat this process for the second kickboard, making sure not to leave a gap between boards.
  • Step 2. Attach side walls and back panel

    Screw the walls and back panel to the base. Make sure the solid white face is at the front. Then place the shelves inside at the base of the cabinet to make it easier to position them later.

  • Step 3. Secure the top shelf

    To hold the top panel in place, insert a couple of screws through the top of each wall. Then use these to attach the top shelf and hold it in place. This will keeps your hands free to screw the panel in. 
  • Step 4. Position the shelves

    Take the shelves from the bottom of your cabinet and position them at the correct height. Use the shelf pins provided in your kit for support underneath each shelf by inserting them in the wall holes. 

  • Step 5. Assemble and attach the top cabinet

    The top cabinet is exactly the same as the base. To assemble it, simply follow steps 1 to 5. Now insert the dowels provided into the holes on top of the base cabinet. Give them a gentle tap with a hammer until they are firmly slotted into place. Then place the top cabinet onto the dowel and lock the cabinet into place. Make sure you get someone to help you lift and position the cabinet.

  • Step 6. Assemble the base organiser unit

    Start with one side panel and the base. Make sure that the holes for the shelf supports are on the inside. Now screw on the second side. Screw the kickboard onto the front base. Then screw the top panel on. Flip the cabinet over onto its front and nail the back panel onto the framework. The white side should be facing down.

  • Step 7. Attach the top organiser unit

    The top organiser unit is the same as the bottom unit except that it doesn’t have a base shelf. To assemble this unit, simply follow Step 7. When you’re finished, insert your dowel into the top of the base cabinet and place the top unit onto the dowel. Then place the completed unit into position against the wall.

  • Step 8. Assemble the drawers

    Drawers for the organiser unit come pre-cut. Insert the base with the white side facing in. Then fold the front panel over the edge of the base and tap the edges into the dowels on the other side. Then attach the handle to the two holes on the front of the drawer with the bolts provided. Repeat this process for all drawers. 

  • Step 9. Attach the drawer runners

    Attach the runners into the slots on the side of the drawer. Tap them into place but be careful that you have the left and right runners on the correct sides. Now screw the drawer runners inside the cabinet. Slide the drawer into place. When attaching your other drawer runners, factor in the height of your drawers.

  • Step 10. Position cabinets in your linen closet

    Place cabinets into the linen closet space. Clamp them together. Pre drill holes between them and screw them together to secure them in place.
