Your step by step guide to create the storage of your dreams

Here you'll find simple steps to help you plan your dream personalized storage solution.
Step 1: Measure
It's really important that you measure the space that your PAX will be going in first, then plan what size wardrobe will be able to fit. Here are the measurements that you will need for your IKEA personalized closet:
- The width (w) of your space, to determine how wide your wardrobe should be
- The height (h) of your space, this will determine how tall your wardrobe should be
- The depth (d) of space, this will help you decide if you need a shallow or deeper wardrobe, and if you need sliding or hinged doors
Remember, hinged doors need more room to open than sliding doors so make sure you have enough space!
Step 2: Choose the frames
Once you have your IKEA personalized storage measurements you can now pick the best combination of frames to fit the space.
- Choose which width you need: 50, 75 or 100cm
- Choose the perfect height: 201 or 236cm
Remember, if you choose the 236cm frames, you need a ceiling height of 250cm or more to fit them once assembled.
- Choose which depth frame you need: 35 or 58cm
- Choose the color frame: White, White Stained Oak, Brown Stained Ash or Black-brown
- Select the number of frames - don't forget you can combine different sizes to create a perfect solution!
For example: if your space has dimensions of 160(w) x 250(h) x 60cm(d), you would be able to fit a closet that is 150x236x58cm. This means your combination could be made of:
2 x 75cm frames, or
1 x 100cm + 1 x 50cm frames, or
3 x 50cm frames
Step 3: Choose the doors
Or don't choose any! With the PAX personalized storage system, it's entirely your decision if you want your closet to have doors or not. With sliding or hinged doors, you can opt to add an extra bit of style, or use mirror doors to utilize the space - and you can hide everything away! Or you can choose a modern and stylish look and have an open solution - perfect for walk-in closets!
Hinged doors are great when you have the space to open them because you have the perfect overview of all your things when the doors are opened wide. Don't forget to buy handles & knobs to really show off your personality.
- Choose the style
- Choose width, 50cm or 25cm
- Choose the height, 195cm or 229cm
- Choose the number of doors, for every 50cm of frame you need 1 door
For example: a 100cm frame would need two 50cm doors. A 75cm frame would need one 50cm and one 25cm door.
The practical advantage of sliding doors for your IKEA personalized closet is that they don't take up much room, saving floor space in front of your wardrobe - perfect for small space living. Sliding doors are sold in pairs and are suitable for frames that add up to 150cm or 200cm.
- Choose the style
- Choose the width: 150cm or 200cm
Please note, for 150cm doors you will need to use two 75cm frames.
- Choose the height: 201cm or 236cm, choose the same size as your frames!
Step 4: Add interior fixtures
The KOMPLEMENT series contains everything from clothes rails, shelves, and drawers, to baskets, shoe racks, and jewelry trays. Think about your everyday needs, what you need easy access to and the best way to organize your belongings. Do you have a lot of shoes? Then don't forget a pull-out tray with shoe rails. Plenty of trousers? Then you need a trouser hanger. If you like to organize your outfits the night before, then you need a valet hanger for your IKEA personalized closet.
Don't forget to pick the correct depth interiors to match your frames!
Step 5: Add finishing touches
Add a few extra touches to your PAX combination to really make the most of the space, and to add a little luxury to your personalized storage solution.
