Bookshelves, Credenzas, Sideboards

Kallax is created as a universal storage unit for many spaces and adding or not adding some detailing you may use it as a bookshelf, credenza, dresser, sideboard and kids’ storage units and even changing tables of all kinds. Add countertops of wood and MDF, go for casters if you need them, insert drawers, doors and even change the look of the piece completely adding geometric or cane web doors. Go for a fluted look to make your piece look ultimate, or for usual jute cubbies for a cozier rustic feel. Kallax shelf is great for kids’ spaces: it can become a base for a changing table. Paint it and decorate it as you want, and use the compartments and drawers for storing all the necessary things. You can also place the shelf in a kids room or a play room and use it for toys and books storage. Use Kallax as a great entryway console with plenty of storage space and in all the other rooms, too.
