I want to build two closets in what is currently an open plan loft. One will be clothes depth (i.e. 24”) and the other has to be quite shallow (16” or less).
I love the look shown in this photo, and would like to try to replicate it on both of my new closets.
I might have this completely wrong, but I was thinking that since I’m going to paint them, they could simply be made from good quality plywood, with that shallow recess created with a router. The outer edges could be finished with edge banding. I’m not sure what would work to “finish”/smooth the little inner edge.
Any ideas about how to achieve this look? FYI I had a quick look at Lowes and Home Depot but couldn’t find any ready-made cabinets that were tall and had a single door. Above ~5’ high they always have two doors (i.e. a tall and a short), I guess because they need that cross pieces to make the cabinet rigid.
