Interior designer Mallory Robins, co-founder of Kobel + Co Interiors, shares how one homeowner turned this 90s design element into a hidden storage cupboard as part of their renovation.
Rather than keeping the architecture as a ledge for coffee table books, a vase or incense holders, Mallory explained that the decision was made to close up a small portion at the bottom with drywall, and cover what remained with an oversized piece of art. Genius!
Now, do you want to create something similiar for your home? You need to consider that this project did come with its challenges.
Mallory shared that the photograph used for the wall art had to be 'specially framed to receive concealed hinges.'
This is where you might run into a few challenges with matching the right type of frame to the right type of hinge, and lastly finding a way to attach the hinge. Also DIY-ers be minful of the weight of the frame you choose, as the heavier it is, the risks are only higher too.
