How to design your perfect PAX wardrobe

There are many ready-made PAX combinations to choose from. Or, you can design your ideal PAX wardrobe with the size, look, colour and specification that’s perfect for your room, as well as for your storage needs.

Step 1 – choose the frames

You first need to measure the space you have – from floor to ceiling and from wall to wall. Available frame heights are 201 cm and 236 cm but be sure to allow an extra height clearance of 1 cm if you want hinged doors or 4 cm for sliding doors. (You also need at least 1 cm clearance to assemble any PAX wardrobe upright rather than raising it from the floor.) Widths are 50 cm, 75 cm or 100 cm and the depth is either 35 cm or 58 cm. You can choose between three colours of PAX frame – white, black-brown and white-stained oak effect.

Step 2 – choose doors, knobs and handles

To match the frames, you can choose between a variety of hinged doors (25 cm or 50 cm wide) or pairs of soft-closing sliding doors (150 cm or 200 cm wide). Of course, you can skip the doors entirely if you want an open wardrobe. Knobs or handles complete your hinged doors and you can easily replace them when you want to refresh the look.

Step 3 – choose interior organisation

Have a good think about what you will store in your wardrobe, so that you can add exactly the interior organisers that you need. KOMPLEMENT accessories includes smart drawers, shelves, shoe racks, jewellery trays, pull-out hangers and more.

Step 4 – choose interior lighting

With lighting for your PAX wardrobe, you can add the finishing touch and make your clothes easier to see. There are lighting options that you can control with IKEA Home smart, as well as sensor lights that operate automatically when you open or close the door.
