Option 4: Plan your PAX Wardrobe using our step-by-step guide

Looking to create a personalized PAX Wardrobe from scratch? 
Follow this six-step guide to build your PAX System:

Step 1:
Choose your frames

Consider how much space you have available in your room. It's important to know the maximum height and width of your new wardrobe. Here's what to keep in mind when choosing your frames:

  • You can choose the colour of the frame.
  • Select the number of frames. You can choose one or more frames and combine different sizes of frames.

Shop PAX frames for hinged doors:

  • Available width: 50 cm (19⅝") or 100 cm (39¼").
  • Available depth: 35 cm (13¾") or 58 cm (22⅞").
  • Available height: 201 cm (79¼") or 236 cm (92⅞").

Shop PAX frames for sliding doors:

  • Available width: 150 cm (587/8") or 200 cm (785/8").
  • Available depth: 35 cm (13¾") or 58 cm (22⅞").
  • Available height: 201 cm (79¼") or 236 cm (92⅞").

Step 2:
Pick your doors

You can choose to skip this step if you want to have an open-concept wardrobe as a walk-in or reach-in closet.

PAX doors with hinges:

  • Hinged doors provide easy access to every part of your wardrobe
  • Available in different colours
  • Hinged doors are available for 50 cm (19½″) and 100 cm (39¼″) wide frames only.
  • Choose the number of doors: For a 50 cm frame, you need to purchase one door. For 100 cm frame, you need two doors.
  • Handles and knobs are sold separately except where noted. 

PAX sliding doors:

  • Sliding doors don’t require as much space as hinged doors
  • Available in different colours
  • Sliding doors are sold in pairs.
  • You can add a KOMPLEMENT soft closing device that catches the running doors so that they close slowly, silently, and gently.
  • You can also choose your own combination of metal frames and panels for your sliding doors. Choose one frame and two packages of panels for each sliding door combination.

Step 3:
Pick door handles for hinged doors

If you chose a hinged door in the previous step, you will need to purchase handles or knobs.

We offer a wide selection of knobs and handles for hinged doors to help enhance the style of your wardrobe.

Step 4:
Add interior organizers

Create a more organized wardrobe by adding KOMPLEMENT interior organizers. Start by thinking about what you have. Do you have many shoes? Then a pull-out tray with shoe racks is a good solution. Maybe you have a lot of accessories such as jewelry, scarves, and belts? Then a sliding shelf is practical.

Step 5:
Add lighting

The morning rush is a lot easier when you can see where all your clothes are. Our wardrobe lighting, available in light strips and cabinet lights, allows you declutter the inside of your wardrobe and highlight your favourite things.

Step 6:
Final touch — accessorize!

Now it’s time to add the finishing touches to your PAX wardrobe. In our wide range of accessories, you can choose between storage boxes, baskets, and inserts which will help complete your new wardrobe!
