Fitting a Wall Liner:Wall to Wall Wardrobes
A wall liner is used to provide a neat professional finish to your sliding door wardrobes.
Over coming minor bumps in the wall the doors can fit up flush to a straight surface.
Fitted against the wall, they come in a range of colours to match or compliment your new doors.
Measuring 100mm width x 2620mm length x 18mm depth, you cut them to length and fit from the floor to the ceiling.
You can see the liner to the right hand side of this photo, running vertically floor to ceiling.
Notice also that a liner has been cut to length and used as a shelf support in this wardrobe.
A frequently asked question is whether to fit the liner to the top of the skirting board, or to remove a section of the skirting so it fits flush to the floor.
The easy option is to fit the wall liners on top of the skirting board.
This is a good solution if you don't want to be cutting into the skirting board, and a perfectly acceptable finish.
Fit the liners by measuring out from the back of the wardrobe door your desired width.
Use a spirit level and draw a staight vertical line from floor to ceiling where you want the inner edge of the liner to be.
Fix the liner with screws and wall plugs, and a dab of No More Nails for extra strength if you like.
Cutting into the skirting means the liners can run floor to ceiling and a more permanent solution.
Cutting skirt can be a little tricky. Measure out the piece you need to remove. If you have a Bosch Multifunctional Tool then removal is easy. If you don't now could be a good time to get one!
Using a sharp chisel is another option, or removing the skirting comletely and just remove the piece with a saw.
My prefered option is to buy my chippy mate a pint and ask him to do it for me!
The choice is completely up to you.
If you are fitting wall to wall wardrobes a liner on each side would be usual.
There is no need for a wall liner if you are using an end panel.
