You have made a good choice and opted for a wall-mounted solution. You can hang this in the baby's room, 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 load-bearing wall. A plaster wall is not suitable for firmly mounting a wall changing table. The supplied plugs are also not suitable for this. For a plaster wall, you need special plaster wall plugs. These are not supplied as standard with the changing table.
How do you know which wall in the house is a supporting wall? The supporting wall is an indispensable element in your home, because as the name suggests, these walls have a load-bearing function. Below I have. I listed for you how you can find out which walls in your house are supporting walls.
In general, you can assume that a supporting wall supports another important element in your home. What should you be thinking about? Take, for example, the stairs and the supporting floors of any upper floor. Nine times out of ten, facades and exterior walls are also load-bearing walls. For example, also check whether parts have been built to the house. Thus, a former exterior wall may have become an interior wall, which still supports the construction of the house.
Supporting walls can sometimes also be recognized by specific characteristics. For example, a load-bearing wall always consists of strong materials. The wall in question must have sufficient force to perform a load-bearing function. You can think of limestone or a wall of bricks.
Take a good look, and where, these are running. Support beams generally carry a large part of the weight. The wall on which or against which a beam lies has a load-bearing function.
If you have a house with several floors and your wall is in the same place from bottom to top, then you are dealing with a supporting wall. One way to recognize a load-bearing 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.
A good way to determine that a wall is at least a supporting wall is to see how thick the wall is. For example, if you live in a stone house, the following rule of thumb exists:
"If your wall is thinner than 10 centimeters thick, it is probably not a supporting wall. If your wall is thicker than 10 centimeters, it is usually a load-bearing wall."
You can knock on a wall and listen to the sound. This allows you to hear whether the wall is a supporting wall or not. For people who do not have much experience in construction, it sometimes seems difficult to hear whether a wall is a supporting wall or not. The trick then is to listen to the difference between a wall that is obviously not a supporting wall and a wall that may be a load-bearing wall.
The difference is in the hollowness of the sound. A non-load-bearing wall often sounds hollow, because there is air between the walls. While a load-bearing wall often sounds massive.
I hope you have benefited from the tips to choose a good wall for hanging the wall changing table. I wish you a lot of fun decorating your baby's room.
