Why supply your own Kitchen and Bedroom cabinet handles?


Cabinet furniture handles are easily overlooked when choosing your home furniture. However, they can make a massive difference to the look and feel of your design. 

Did you know that when you are buying a Kitchen, Bedroom or Bathroom from larger nationwide suppliers, they will often have up to £25 per handle worked in the cost of your Kitchen or Bedroom? Just think how much money you can save by supplying your own handles. The average kitchen will have at least 15 handles which could mean you are paying £375 or more just for standard handles as the nicer handles will be offered at a premium!

We have worked with manufacturers and designers all over the world to create an exclusive range of handles that are not only unique to Bedrooms Plus, but they are also much more affordable and made from the highest quality materials in the world.
Polished black M4TEC T9 Cabinet Handle


All of our cabinet handles are part of our M4TEC® brand of furniture hardware. All of our products are strictly tested for quality and durability. Normally each piece of furniture hardware that we add to our range will go through a minimum of 3 months testing period where they will be rigorously inspected to ensure they are designed to last a long time and maintain their perfect appearance for years to come.

Our handle range can be supplied for new kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. They can also be used to simply swap out the handles that you have and bring your furniture back to life with a new element. We always list the centre hole sizes which is the length from screw to screw so this is very easy to see if our handles will fit your existing screw holes. We have handles to suit almost every size.

Bedrooms Plus have been manufacturing furniture since 1980 so we only offer handles that meet the high standards that we desire to finish off our custom furniture. Many of our handles have a design that will not be found in any stores, they are very unique and can really stand out on your furniture. 

We have handles that are individually cut with genuine Swarovski Crystals, handles that are hand filled with glitter and sealed with a clear resin and hundreds of other designs from traditional to ultra modern.

Everybody that orders a handle from Bedrooms Plus will receive a free measuring tape which can be very handy when it comes to installation of the handles.
Free measuring tape & bolts supplied with every order

How to Fit Furniture Handles

Installing furniture handles accurately and easily

glitter-furniture-handles
Learn how to add furniture handles to your doors and drawers, or replace your old furniture handles with new ones.

We'll use a Handle Jig, an inexpensive tool that allows you to fit all of your furniture handles in the same position on every door for them to align perfectly.

The handle jig can be used with either bar-type or single-screw knob handles.

In this guide, we will attach a T-bar handle to an ordinary cupboard door, such as those commonly found in kitchens, bedrooms or bathrooms. 


Step 1 - Measure vertically

furniture-handle-jig
The Handle Jig features an extendible green ruler which hooks onto the top of the door. The black section is also extendible to allow you to determine your furniture handle position inwards from the side of the door. Guides rest against the side of the door to keep it in position.

You need to determine the distance from the top of your door to where the first hole will be required. If you are using the jig to position a single-screw handle, this will be the only hole required.






Step 2 - Measure horizontally

Furniture-handle-jig
This black section is extendible and allows you to mark the holes for your handles in from the side of the cupboard door. With your vertical height chosen, determine the distance from the side of the door where your first hole is required.










Step 3 - Mark the first hole

Furniture-handle-jig
For this step you can use an awl or a 2mm pilot drill attachment for a power drill.

In order to mark the first hole, drill through the plastic and into the cupboard door surface - just enough to leave a mark for a bigger drill later on.






Step 4 - Mark the second hole

Furniture-handle-jig
This handle jig has a scale with standard hole centres for standard furniture handles, such as 96mm, 128mm, 160mm and more (hole sizes). If your bar handle has standard hole sizes, you can mark the second hole according to the scale. 

If your handle is a different size, you can make your own second hole simply by drilling through the plastic where desired.

Keep in mind, if you are replacing handles with those of a different hole size, it's best to choose a handle which can also conceal where the old holes were. The glitter bar handle pictured at the start is an example of this. It actually features 160mm and 192mm handle positions on each handle but more importantly, the nature of its design means it can also cover up nearby drill holes above or below its new position. 


Step 5 - Drill the final holes

Your handle jig is now set for any other matching cupboard doors. 

Each door can now be drilled and marked out ready for final drilling. After this is complete, use a 5mm drill bit on a power drill to drill through the previously marked holes and create the drill hole for the handle screws.

NOTE - For a neat finish, it is best to drill from the front of the door surface to the back, doing the opposite may burst through the front surface as the drill penetrates.


Step 6 - Screw the handles onto the doors


Furniture-handle-jig
You will need a hand pozi-type screwdriver for this final step.

Use a handle screw of 28mm length and 4mm diameter to fix your screws onto your furniture door. This will be sufficient diameter for most screws and 28mm is suited to most furniture cupboard doors. All handles supplied by Bedrooms Plus come with the correct fixing screws.





The Handle Jig is available through our Bedrooms Plus Online Store, in addition to an attractively-priced range of traditional and contemporary furniture handles.

How to Install Sliding Wardrobe Doors

Fitting the track and sliding wardrobe doors

Sliding-wardrobe-doors-soft-white
This guide will help you to install sliding wardrobe door tracks onto your ceiling and floor, then how to install your doors onto the track to complete the wardrobe or storage space.

Please note - this guide refers to the installation of standard size sliding wardrobe doors, which are made to fit a ceiling height of 2260mm but come in a variety of widths to suit your needs, with 3607mm being the maximum opening width (4555mm for premium doors). See the end of this guide for information regarding made to measure doors.



We will assume you have already prepared your opening space, picked your doors and are ready to install them.

If you are not at that stage yet, take a look at THIS POST which details how to measure up your chosen area and select your doors. If your chosen area needs to be modifed or built to accomodate these doors, this two page PDF guide will show you how.

Lets get started...


Step 1 - Sizing the tracks


Cutting-sliding-wardrobe-doors-track
Measure your opening at the top first. Take this measurement and mark it on your top track. Use a set square to mark a straight line across it for cutting. 

Then measure the base of your opening and mark a straight on the floor track for cutting. Use a fine tooth hacksaw to cut both tracks. 

TIP - Cut both tracks 2mm shorter than the opening heights to allow easier installation.

Step 2 - Install the tracks


Install the top track first. How this track is fitted will depend on your ceiling. If you have used spacer blocks or opening height reducers to fit your track onto, the track can be simply fixed onto these with the screws provided. As seen in this guide.

If you are installing the top track directly onto a level ceiling (opening height must be 2260mm +/- 12mm remember), there are a number of options -

Sliding-wardrobe-doors-track


Sliding-wardrobe-doors-track


Sliding-wardrobe-doors-track

Sliding-wardrobe-doors-track

Sliding-wardrobe-doors-track

Sliding-wardrobe-doors-floor-track

As picture F shows - the floor track can be secured directly onto carpet or hardwood flooring. Before fixing the bottom track to the floor, it will be necessary to install the first door, and adjust the position of the floor track accordingly until the door is completely vertical. Use a spirit level to check this. The position will normally be around 30mm back from the front of the top track. Have a look at step 4 for installing your first door.

We recommend fixing the bottom track into position using screws rather than double sided tape for more security.


Step 3 - Familiarise yourself with the door positions


Your sliding wardrobe doors are designed to be overlapped. Before installing your doors, use this picture as a reference on how to position them -


Sliding-wardrobe-doors-overlap

Step 4 - Install the doors


Sliding-wardrobe-doors-installationThe back door(s) are always installed first. You will need two pairs of hands for this depending on the door size. Angle the door backwards and insert the top of the door into the top track.

Push the bottom of the door inwards to straighten the door and lower the bottom wheels into the floor track grooves. As seen in the picture here.





Step 5 - Engage the top guide to secure in place


sliding-wardrobe-doors
Push up the black and yellow plastic (older versions are white) section of the guide to secure it into the groove in the top track. Remember that your first door will be installed into the back groove of the first.

As the picture shows, to disengage the guide from the track, pull down on the plastic part to release the door. Remove the door from the track by lifting out at an angle.



Step 6 - Adjust your doors to level


Sliding-wardrobe-doors-adjustmentAll of the sliding wardrobe doors from Bedrooms Plus can be adjusted once fitted so that they are plum with your side walls or frame that you have built.


Using a pozidrive screwdriver, adjust the bottom wheels. This will alter and angle of each door. Turn the screws on the bottom wheels clockwise to raise the door and anti-clockwise (counter-clockwise) to lower the door. 




Step 7 - Secure in place with anti-jump clips


Sliding-wardrobe-doors-track-anti-jump

The purpose of these anti-jump clips is to prevent the door from jumping out of the track. It is important that you do not skip this step.

Follow steps A, B and C to engage the anti-jump clip in place. PLEASE NOTE - When rotating the clip into the open position, it is easy for the clip to fall out of the groove which holds it. if this happens, simply snap it back into its original position shown in A.

To disengaging the anti-jump clip just reverse the steps shown here.

Enjoy your new sliding wardrobe doors...

Remember that this article refers to the installation of standard size sliding wardrobe doors which are made to fit an opening height of 2260mm.
