We’re in love with our Ikea Pax wardrobes!!! They give the impression of being wonderful and simply as importantly, they perform rather well. I used to be going to attempt to write all about them in a single publish however I’ve determined to separate it into two. We should nonetheless attempt to add trim to the sides so I’ll write about that quickly. Including a Pax wardrobe to your room will take time. The planning of it takes time, as does the meeting, however for my part properly value it. We purchased our wardrobes for simply over €800 and it has a lot of additional options as you’ll quickly see! Comply with these steps to get the wardrobes of your desires!
The primary image right here is the earlier than shot. The wardrobes have been truly on the opposite facet of the room, however we felt that they’d look so significantly better on the other wall. Right here they’d be nestled in between the chimney breast and the wall. We very fastidiously eliminated the previous wardrobes as we needed to promote them on. FYI – we did find yourself promoting them for €250 on donedeal.ie so being cautious was completely value it! (Click on right here to learn a publish about the most effective methods of eliminating your undesirable stuff!) As you may see we have been left with just a few holes, however we patched them up simply sufficient.
Do you know there are planning instruments on the Ikea web site to design so many areas of your home??!! The kitchen, rest room, a lot of totally different storage methods and even your sofa! Click on right here for a listing of all of them. The Ikea Pax on-line planner is unbelievable!

You possibly can create your room in 3D, even including wall paint and flooring if you’d like! As you add bits and items to your wardrobe it is possible for you to to see the whole price always. There are many inner choices to select from. As you may see above we went with cabinets on high, however we put them at totally different heights as I knew I needed to place luggage on high whereas Trevor needed a shelf that was a lot increased.
We added movement sensor lights which we put underneath these cabinets and we love them!!!!! They’ve a heat, tender glow that isn’t too sturdy, so it wouldn’t wake anybody within the morning for those who needed to prepare whereas your different half remains to be conked!
For the wires, we drilled a gap by way of the shelf and once more by way of the highest of the wardrobe. The lights in each wardrobes have been then linked. We have been in a position to plug all of it right into a socket that was on the wall, alongside the facet of the wardrobe. Once we add trim we gained’t have entry to this plug, however the lights have excellent opinions and the bulb are LED so they’ll hopefully final a really very long time! If you’re shopping for lights ensure you have the facility provide twine, the connection twine and these cables cowl strips. Beneath is an image of how a lot tidier all the things seems while you drill the holes and add the duvet strips.
I observed, within the Ikea showroom, some darkish scratches on the white railings. I believe these have been brought on by transferring hangers. So we selected gray hanging railings. Hopefully then, if we do have scratches, they wouldn’t be noticeable.
We fold numerous our garments so we purchased pull out drawers with soft-close hinges. I’m feeling very fancy proper about now!! 🙂 They maintain a lot and since they’re pull out, all the things is very easy to get out. Whenever you place issues within the wardrobe on the planner, it’ll inform you in case your merchandise is in the way in which of the rest, e.g. It wouldn’t let me put the drawers on the very backside because the hinges have been in the way in which. I believe this was a superb function and it actually made me assured that I used to be planning appropriately.
Double test your procuring record on the finish. If you need, you may go into an Ikea retailer and certainly one of employees members can test your order to ensure all the things is right. We did this and we discovered it very useful. For €89, our wardrobes have been delivered the following day, . The supply man even helped us to deliver it upstairs.

As a facet observe, certainly one of out doorways had a small mark after we opened the packaging. We emailed Ikea instantly and so they changed the door in a short time and with no fuss!
Meeting was fairly simple however prolonged and at instances worrying. The 2 of us put it collectively and it took a whole day. As we purchased the taller wardrobe frames, we needed to assemble them standing up. That is a lot more durable and I really feel you’ll undoubtedly want a second individual to do it, except you’re a complete professional! It took some time to get the wardrobes hanging degree to one another. I believe it’s because our wood floorboards should be somewhat uneven. I’ve a tiny piece of folded cardboard underneath one of many legs to make all of it degree! We added these handles and so they look a lot dearer than what they have been! It was out first time assembling something as huge as that and I might undoubtedly do it once more. Effectively value it, we love the end result!
