On which wall do I hang a wall dresser?

On which wall do I hang a wall dresser?

You have made a good choice and opted for a wall dresser solution. You can hang this in the nursery, bathroom, toilet or treatment room. Then on to the next step. Choosing a suitable wall.

Choose a wall to which you want to attach the changing table. Look for a solid wall. For example a supporting wall. A plaster wall is not suitable for mounting it. The supplied plugs are also not suitable for this. But how do you know what a supporting wall is? The supporting wall is an indispensable element in your home, because as the name suggests, these walls have a load-bearing function.

4 tips for locating a solid wall:

1: The place in your home: In general, you can assume that a supporting wall supports another important element in your home. What should you think about then? Take, for example, the stairs and the load-bearing floors of a possible upper floor. Nine times out of ten, facades and outer walls are also load-bearing walls. For example, also check whether parts of the house have been built. Thus, a former exterior wall may have become an interior wall, still supporting the construction of the house. 

2: Supporting walls can sometimes also be recognized by their specific characteristics. For example, a supporting wall always consists of strong materials. The wall in question must have sufficient strength to perform a load-bearing function. You can think of limestone or a wall of bricks. In general, a supporting wall is usually at least XNUMX centimeters thick. 

3: Are the original beams visible in your home? Take a good look, and where, these run. Support beams generally support a large portion of the weight. The wall on or against which a beam rests has a load-bearing function.

4: Another way to recognize a supporting wall is when it continues to the next floor. 

Still no clue? Then consult construction drawings of your house. If you do not have these available, you can usually request them from the municipality. Or ask a specialist.
