Elfa Freestanding Desk Instructions: How To Install On Elfa
The first thing you need to do is to decide if you want to use the standard or the freestanding version of your office. If you are using the standard version, then it will be necessary to remove some of the furniture in order for it to fit into place.
However, if you choose not to use the freestanding option, then there will be no problem with fitting into place.
In any case, the next step is to determine where you would like to put your desk. You may have a few options here.
One possibility is to simply place it somewhere in the center of your room. Another possibility is to place it near one of the windows so that you can see out from your desk at all times. A third option could be to place it outside in a location which provides good access for those coming and going through your home.
Another consideration is whether you wish to keep the door open or close it. There are two types of doors available for your desk; sliding and fixed.
Sliding doors allow you to adjust their position when needed without having to take them off and put them back on again. Fixed doors require that they remain closed when not in use, but they can be opened up easily enough by pushing a button located at the bottom of each side of the door.
After you have considered these options, you will need to move the desk into place. If you are using the fixed door version of the desk, then it is necessary to line up the peg holes at the bottom with the holes located in the floor.
This will keep them locked into place. Open up one door and then push the desk slightly so that the opposite door can be lined up with the peg holes on that side as well. Once this has been done, close the door and you will find that it is much more secure than if it were to have a sliding door.
Open up the doors and then place your Elfa shelving units and drawers inside of it. If you wish, you can leave the back panel off of the desk so that you have easier access to everything located inside.
If you wish to keep the back panel on, then simply place your Elfa shelving units and drawers behind and then place the smaller Elfa units in front of them so that they are not visible. Close the doors and then you will find that everything is neatly organized within your Elfa desk.
Another thing you may want to consider is placing the desk on an angle. This provides a variation which can be nice to have from time to time.
You can either place one leg longer than the other two or angle them all in the same direction. Whichever you prefer.
There are many different ways to work with Elfa and we hope you will find the best way to do it that works for you and your home. Elfa is one of the best storage systems ever invented because of all the different ways it can be used and adapted to any environment.
In addition, it is very user-friendly in that you can easily adapt it to your own personal needs.
Congratulations on choosing Elfa. We wish you much enjoyment in your new Elfa desk.
