Assembly instructions of the fitted wardrobe
Please take the time to read the instructions. Please do not just proceed by looking at the pictures alone! It is noticeable to you when you set it up. Thank you 🙂
For safety and practical reasons, please note the following:
To avoid damage to the material and accidents, the cabinet should be assembled by two people.
An important piece of information about the custom-made cabinet with depths of less than 44 cm.
Usually, our closet does not need to be wall-mounted as it is quite heavy and stable.
In certain cases, instead, due to the reduction in depth and high height, it is mandatory to mount them on the wall. The person who performed the installation must attach it to the wall before installing the door to avoid the risk of falling forward.
Please open the packages in the order listed. This will help you to avoid assembly difficulties!
When opening the package of metal parts, small parts and fittings, please ensure that no part is lost, since the parts are counted exactly and are only available in the number required for assembly.
If you also ordered LED lights, please note the following before setting up:
The horizontal sensor LED bar with motion detector (see video) is mounted under the wardrobe cover at the top (inside the cabinet). Use the two supplied screws for this.
The vertical LED bar (in the dividing side panel) (see video) is installed in the inner cheek in which the milling is provided for this at the factory. In our video you can see how to assembly it with the wardrobe dividing side panel hole already prepared; however, it is much easier to install on a cupboard dividing side lying on the floor or on the table. Be sure to start at the top, 2.5 cm below the end of the dividing side panel, on which the cupboard top cover will be attached later, when you insert the vertical LED bar in the horizontal wardrobe dividing side panel. Since the same LED lengths are used for different cupboard heights, it can happen that a small part of the lower, vertical LED bar is covered by the wardrobe base.
Horizontal LED strips: For the power cable, a hole should be drilled into the wardrobe top cover on the left outside the position where the LED bar is to be screwed on, so that the power cable can be routed above and behind the wardrobe to a socket.
Please note that there must be some space available for the transformer of the LED systems! The easiest way to accommodate the narrow transformer is behind the dividing side panel if there is at least 3 cm of space between one of the wardrobe dividing side panel and wall behind the side cover panel (when you have ordered fitted wardrobe). Alternatively, it can be placed behind the wardrobe back if the wardrobe can be set up approx. 2 cm forward. The third variant for the free standing wardrobe as for fitted wardrobe is to accommodate the transformer on the top of the cabinet cover: However, this is only possible if, in addition to the necessary centimetre that is required for the construction, there is about 2 cm more space up to the ceiling. The last option is to cut a cutout for the transformer in the wardrobe back: This has the advantage that it is easily accessible.

Unpack a cabinet dividing side panel (A) (all dividing side panels are the same). First attach the leveling feet (see the photo) to the first left dividing side panel only on the side facing the inside of the wardrobe (on the right side). Assemble the leveling feet as shown in the drawing (right side). IMPORTANT: Glue ordinary furniture felts (not included) to the bottom of the leveling feet to avoid the wardrobe from scratching the floor when it is moved.
Screw the four pins (see photo below) into the indicated holes. First screw the pins all the way in and then turn them back a little until the two holes are positioned vertically (see the photo with the arrows below). Please proceed precisely to ensure that they can be connected easily later.

Unpack the base (F)and the top cover (E). Check whether the base and cover are correct for the respective module by comparing the dimensions with the drawing on the first page.
Use a screwdriver to open the milled groove, into which the back side of the wardrobe will later be inserted, up to the edge (see drawing below). For this, the milled groove on the edge must be opened. That is why this enables the back side of the wardrobe to be inserted laterally. Carry out this step both in the base and the top cover.
– – 3 – –
Insert the metal components into the holes shown below. Pay attention to the correct positioning so that the pins can be inserted later (in the base and top cover of the wardrobe).
– – 4 – –
Put in the base and the left side dividing panel together and tighten the screw shown below.
– – 5 – –
Unpackthe back side of the wardrobe (C) and select the right one with the appropriate width for the respective module (the back side of the wardrobe is approx.1.5 cm wider than the module, as it is inserted into the milled groove in the cabinet side panels, base and top cover).
– – 6 – –
Be careful with the next step! Please do it in two in any case! Put on the top cover element with the help of a ladder. Insert the back side of the wardrobe and the top cover into the milled groove and then slide the top cover to the left up to the left side of the cupboard until the pins enter the holes. Now insert and tighten the screws. Attention: If the cover cannot be pushed in, check whether both the holes and the pins are correctly positioned as described above. If necessary first remove the cover and correct the position of the holes and pins. See also our montage film.

Now unpack other side dividing panel of the wardrobe, assemble the two cupboard feet (don’t forget the furniture felts) and screw in the pins on both sides. Pay attention to the correct position of the pins and the holes.
Proceed in the same way with all cabinet side panels.
On the last side dividing panel of the wardrobe on the right side, the pre-drilled holes are at a point that would only allow installation outside the cabinet. Do the following:
It is necessary to change the pilot holes accordingly. To do this, enlarge the existing pilot hole with a 9 mm drill head – so that it can also be reached from the “other direction” – and fix the feet on the left and inwards the wardrobe.

Now unpack the first door in the appropriate width. The width is noted on the label on the box. In the modules with two doors, the left door has a plastic dust protection. First assemble only one door (with two people) by screwing the hinges on the wardrobe to the dividing side panel.
If the height of the wardrobe ordered differs from a standard size, pre-drilled holes for mounting the hinges on the dividing side panel of the wardrobe may be missing.
Position the door exactly. Now fix the hinges, which find their place on pre-drilled holes, by screwing in the vertical screws.
Now take care of the hinges for which there is no pre-drilled hole: Unscrew not much the vertical screws of the door hinges. Please be careful not to unscrew them completely! With firm pressure and horizontally, just screw these screws into the dividing side panel.
The door is correctly installed if there is 1.6 cm of space between the floor and the door!

If the height of the wardrobe ordered differs from a standard size, pre-drilled holes for mounting the hinges on the dividing side panel of the wardrobe may be missing. However, the doors can also be fastened without pre-drilled holes by positioning the door precisely and turning the screws straight and firmly into the dividing side panel of the wardrobe horizontally. The door is correctly installed if there is 1.6 cm of space between the floor and the door!

Assemble all accessories firstly (when one door of the wardrobe is already assembly). Make sure that the drawers and the shelves are not installed where are the hinges of the doors (unless it is a cabinet with only one door) are attached. To determine the position of the hinges, one of the doors was already installed.

If you have ordered a drawer element, the instructions follow here. If not, please continue on with point 12!
The drawer module for installation inside the wardrobe is almost completely assembled. Only a few steps are required (see photos below).
If you want to assembly the feet,which is not absolutely necessary, turn the module over and carefully turn it upside down (this step was not shown in the photos) to assembly them.
Then put your feet on and turn the module over again. Then position the element inside the wardrobe: either place the drawer module on the cupboard floor or mount it at a higher point: To place it further up, place it on a shelf.
The drawer boxes have a slightly lower depth than the shelves and can be set up flush at the front. After the drawer element has been positioned in the cabinet, first place the closing strips on the left and right on the wooden pins provided and tap them into place (attention: in the photos, the strips were installed outside the wardrobe, which you should do better rather than inside the wardrobe). The drawer module is not attached separately, but is stable due to its weight and usually standing behind the door hinges. The enclosed wooden dowels are only used if you install two drawer modules one above the other. A shelf serves as the cover shelf and support for the drawer box: it is either attached like the other shelves. This leaves a small gap between the cover shelf and the top drawer. The shelf can also just be put on if you prefer.

The shelves are mounted with the screws shown in the photo. The shelf clicks into place and is thus firmly stabilized.
– – 13 – –
Fasten each clothes rail holder to the side panel with two screws on the side. Important: Mount the clothes rail either under a shelf or under the top cover of the wardrobe and as centrally as possible in the wardrobe depth.
– – 14 – –
Use the Hex (Allen) key (included) and a spirit level to position the wardrobe horizontally. The leveling feet create a leveling of up to 5 mm.
– – 15 – –
Now you can assemble all doors.
– – 16 – –
If necessary, assembly the handles (the handles are already milled in the “integrated” door variant). Attention: Mount the handle precisely and straight! Drill slowly outwards on the pre-holes with a 3 mm wood drill and little pressure. A second person should check that the drilling is being carried out perfectly in horizontally to the door.
Then drill from the outside in using a 5 mm drill bit and enlarge the hole. Then mount the handle with the supplied screws. Do not tighten the screws immediately one after the other, but screw them in step by step, i.e. alternately, at the same time.

Adjusting the doors.
Loosen screws A slightly to raise or lower the respective door. Then tighten the screws again.
Turn screws B in or out to move the door left or right.
Loosen screw C slightly to increase or decrease the distance between the door and the wardrobe module. Then tighten the screw again.
– – 18 – –
Install door slow motion (two for each wardrobe door): The door slow motion is simply clipped to any door hinge, it must be a sufficient blow if it is necessary to use a rubber hammer AFTER it has been used or positioned correctly.
– – 19 – –
Installing the side closing panels:
The side closing panels are mounted flush with the doors so they form a straight line. The side closing panel covers 1,1 cm of the side edge of the wardrobe. Therefore there is 3 mm of space between the panel and the door.
If the panels do not fit into the gap between the wall of the cabinet and the wall due to unevenness in the walls or incorrect dimensions, they must be adjusted accordingly.
If you do not have the necessary adjustments made by an expert, we would like to point out that you have to be careful and act at your own risk.
For fastening: Mount the side closing panels on the cabinet dividing side panel at three points with wood glue (not included) and on the wall with acrylic joint (not included).
If you have chosen a panel not to be made on measure, but to be cut on site in two exactly fitting strips, we would like to point out that this work is carried out by an expert and cut and assembled at your own risk got to.
Please note that this step involves a high risk of injury if it is carried out by inexperienced persons or if the safety regulations are disregarded. IDAW assumes no responsibility for this.

Install the screw covers: place them on the larger holes so that they are covered.
