Ikea Pax Wardrobe Wall


My favorite part of our new master bedroom addition is definitely the Ikea Pax Wardrobe wall. At first we considered a walk-in closet for the 18X18 room, but ended up going for more floor space by doing one wall with nothing but custom storage space, something this house desperately lacks.  Ikea has a great website where you can build-your wardrobe from their free online software then print out the plans and items needed and take to the store to purchase.

After measuring the space we determined that 5 ikea pax wardrobe frames (39 1/4 X 22 7/8 X 93 1/8") would fit the space, however, we ended up using 3 of those and 4 smaller frames 19 5/5 w frames. We picked the Hemnes doors, komplement shelves and wire baskets. We borrowed a truck and picked and drove the 2 hours to our nearest ikea.

Here's the basic process we used to get that built-in closet look. Photos aren't great with iphone.

Love the way it turned out. Where did you get the doors? I looked at the Pax line on Ikea's site and I didn't see any doors like those.

I really love what you've done! We just bought a house and are also in desperate need of storage and this seems like it could be a great fit for our room as well. What have you loved most about it? It's a little overwhelming with all of Ikea's customization options and I was wondering what you loved and/or what you could live without from the setup you've chosen. Thanks for sharing!

LOVE it. By any chance do you remember what white you used that matched the Pax white? I can't find any references anywhere and I don't have mine yet to compare, but need to buy paint that matches for the ceiling..

We just put one of these in a bathroom space and I love it! The stores have a great selection of doors. Many different price ranges.
