Worst quality, Frame came apartDevardhiThe frame snapped and came apart while fixing. The screws snapped out of wood and the whole frame fell down. The wood inserts were weak and did not hold the horizontal and vertical frame together, The backside cardboard does not provide strength to the whole structure. Waste of money
Repeat purchase of this great systemMaryWe’ve bought PAX units before and are buying them again for our new house. Love the function and flexibility, and the fit and finish are excellent. Takes some careful planning to make sure all necessary parts are included in the purchase.
1) I wish IKEA would develop some type of template for adding handles or knobs to the doors, for precision and ease of adding these parts; and
2) Right now availability of product and accessory parts is spotty (“supply chain issues”), so I am unable to complete my PAX system until some unknown future date. Frustrating!
Superior engineering, excellent dimensional tolerancesJeffThis is engineered to the nth degree. The IKEA engineering department has optimized the weight, cost, and functionality of this wardrobe system. It delivers all the functionality and most of the beauty of closet systems costing 5 times more. I only wish IKEA offered a pull-down closet rod accessory. We had to order those from a 3rd party.
Functional and easy to assembleJen236Easy, customizable, durable. We are adding trim and painting our closet system but so far it’s incredibly easy to assemble and work with. We found a video on YouTube that helped assemble the larger boxes.

OK product with average quality materialWeiI think the overall quality of the boards could be improved. The wood chips of the particle board fell off easily. On the positive side, the assembly instructions is thorough, although you need some patience to read it through.
Broke during assemblyAlexisWorst Ikea purchase ever unfortunately. Really not worth the money when it collapsed like a domino when trying to stand it upright to put next to the wall. Super disappointing as customer service told me I was out of luck because it broke “after” assembly. Had to build it a different way than the instructions said which ended up costing me more money to salvage this wardrobe.
Pax closet towerJuliaEasy instructions to follow, looks very nice in my closet and has lots of options, happy I bought it.
OrganizerCindySo good to have such awesome storage.
Completely fell apart during assemblyNatalieFollowed instructions exactly. When it's finally put together and ready to be moved vertical, every single screw ripped out of the particleboard. Completely unsalvageable.
Good qualityVana T.This thing is huge but quality is good. Was fairly difficult to put together but only because it’s really large. If u have stand 8 ft ceilings you need to build this upright. The color is beautiful and looks ascetically pleasing.
Collapsed on meEmilieI was super excited to assemble our pax wardrobe system that I'd waited hours for delivery for. Spent over 1k on the set; followed the instructions on the widest beige cabinet, stood it up, and it collapsed like cheap particle board. A total of 12 securing screws isn't enough for something so huge, and maybe you need to rethink this design! Going to return all the pieces as my faith in this system is shaken, and I don't trust it to stand up to being used if it can't stand up to being stood up.
DO NOT BUYKristiPut together this frame and the 19' one. Went to stand this one up and the screws came out. top board came crashing down and gouged my arm and the sides caved in. I have bought so many dressers from IKEA that I was sure this would be an easy fix to my closet. So disappointed and now have to drive an hour to return.
Elegant and ClassyIlmadijeI did a whole room with the Pax units. This system lets you configure it to any look and lifestyle you need for top organization!
Widest cabinets bring big challengesPamWe purchased one 39" x 13 1/2" cabinet along with 6 others. Installation of the backboard is very difficult--it has 2 folds and falls out of the slot easily. The two of us struggled to find ways/objects to hold us the center (like a laundry basket or empty box), to avoid a sagging center when nailing in the edges. The wide drawers had the same issue.
Cheap QualityAlexThe wardrobes are made of very cheap quality and about half of the pieces came damaged. Don't set your expectations too high. Plus it'll take you HOURS to install

I’m satisfied with this product.KathyI’m satisfied with this product.
HORRIBLE!!!!KarenThis is junk. It completely broke when lifted. The screw locks just popped right out and broke through the particle board. I trolled the instructions to the letter. And now I’m out $150 because now it damaged and broken and I can’t return it. 👎🤬🤬😡
