1. Prepare your tools and materials
When assembling large pieces of flat-pack furniture, it helps to be organised. Make sure you have all the right tools and gear to put everything together – the instructions list what’s required. Next, grab some friends! While it’s certainly possible to assemble this on your own, it’s going to be a heck of a lot easier with others to lend a hand.
2. Lay everything out
Lay all your pieces out and check you’ve got everything. The enclosed diagram will show you how to fix everything together. Bunnings Flexi Storage Clever Cubes make great room dividers, but they’re also nifty storage units. If you’re using them to stash your junk, make sure you’ve grabbed a selection of baskets (Bunnings sell them too), so you’re good to go after you’ve assembled it all.
3. Slot everything together
We’ve got a really big room to separate, so we’re using a 4m x 4m cube to maximise our storage options. This will not only look great in the room, but also result in a more open-effect as you can see through the cubes. These units are available in heaps of different configurations, so if you’re renting, there’s bound to be one to fit every space imaginable. Extra inserts fit within the cubes for even more options.
4. Make it safe
Once you’ve assembled your cube and figured out where you’d like it to go, you might want to consider affixing it to the wall or floor for added safety. The cube comes with anti-toppling brackets, which are great, as each shelf can hold up to 15kg – that’s an awful lot of stuff that could come tumbling down!
5. Style up a storm
Once it’s safely in position, it’s time to style. We’ve put a selection of decorator items and indoor plants in our cubes, and also added jute baskets to hide the rest of the clutter.
