Cabinet fittings for repairs and upcycling

If you’re fixing a cupboard or upcycling a cabinet you’ve adopted or had lying around for a while, our range of cabinet fittings can help you make something a little outdated look as good as new. We could even help you customise your cabinet to create the perfect storage unit for your needs – whatever they are.

How do you want your cabinet to look? Will you be painting it to match other furniture or sanding it and adding a lime wax to create a classic beachy look? There are so many paints and paint finish options out there, that this is the easy bit. However, it’s how you plan the interior of your cupboard that’s really exciting.

Level up your furniture

Ensure the feet are level and suitable for your flooring. We have a wide range of push-in furniture glides, screw-in furniture glides – even height-adjustable glides – prefect if you need to line the top of your cabinet up with another unit. We have tap-in furniture glides or, if you need to be able to move your cabinet easily, we also have lockable castors.

Then with a beautiful carcass and level feet, it’s time to consider how you’ll use the inside of the cabinet.

Fix damaged shelves with new shelf supports

Add any new shelves or repair any broken ones with our 6mm and 7mm shelf supports. We also provide heavy-duty shelf supports too.

Extend your space with telescopic shelf brackets

Add functionality with an internal folding shelf – perfect for pantry cabinets and laundry cabinets where you may need additional space from time to time. By using these telescopic shelf brackets with their impressive 60kg load rating, you can use a cabinet to hide away additional worksurface space for when you need it.

If you want the option to have a shelf bracket that folds down rather than opens up, we can cater for that too.

With open cabinets or media cabinets may stay open a fair proportion of the time, you may choose to install a glass shelf. If so, consider using corner protectors to prevent any scratches to users or your belongings from the sharp corners of the glass shelves.

Reimagine storage with hooks for cables

You may wish to add hooks to store cables or wires. We have a wide range of fold-down hooks and standard hooks available at a wide range of price points for you to choose from.

Soft close hinges can add a premium feel to any cabinet and they don’t have to cost the earth. We have a wide range of cupboard and cabinet soft close mechanisms. Depending on the weight of your door, you can choose from double or single soft-closing piston sets. We have regular hinges too if you are just looking for cheap and cheerful hinges you can rely on.

If you wish to add a drawer to your cabinet we have soft-closing runners for that too. If you need to build a drawer for your cabinet you can use modesty blocks to reinforce the drawer structure. Of course, modesty blocks are perfect in the event you need to strengthen the cabinet carcass too.

Add the finishing touches with cabinet doors and handles

Now, it’s time to add the doors. If you’re adding glass doors, you’ll need special hinges like our Bonsai Hinges for glass doors.

And, whatever doors you choose, you’ll probably need some kind of door pulls or handles. You can choose a single-fix door knob or a dual-fix door handle, or if you’re feeling confident about your carpentry skills, you could choose an inset handle.

BPF Online have been creating fixtures and fittings for more than 20 years. Most of our product pages have a handy technical details section, but if you’d like more information on any of our products, we also have an online chat that is open office hours, which you can use to contact our advisors and get the help and support you need to be able to buy your components with confidence.
