Linen closetMarilyn M.The closet is the perfect size for the area that we needed. We were under the impression that the door, mirror and shelving/hardware was included, but they were not. The construction is very good and the shelf and clips to hold it in place is very well made and fit like a glove.
Closet shelvingJoseph K.I bought this unit to upgrade a clothes closet from the cheap wire rack supported by the drywall only that the contractor installed. Knowing the risk of collapse under load, I installed the IKEA unit along with other units to complete the closet. This center unit was used to add a couple of shelves and soft close drawers. I found the units I bought very easy to assemble (much easier than a comparable Allen Roth unit from a hardware store) and they totally support the clothes hung there without reliance on the sheetrock for support.
Deeper Than Expected..Monique R.It’s depth is more than expected giving me a tad bit less space to work with but that was my error in measuring. Overall.. I loves it, it’s very sturdy and fulfills what it was purchased for. Also, make a room in your budget to have someone else assemble it.. it’s a tedious task.

Very Poor QualityKaleem S.Quality of all Pax wardrobes is extremely poor and not like before.
Pax systemPolly V.I LOVE my new closet! I moved from a very large house to a very small house and my closet was 1/10 of what it used to be. I had clothes everywhere until I got the PAX system! It is amazing and helps me organize and find my clothes!
well run organizationFrank P.the current products are well designed for its purpose and is lighter in weight then its predecessors, however the quality and durability of the finish has been compromised.
Good qualityAnnia S.Nice finish, easy to ensemble.
Love my pax...Chris L.I would highly recommend you plan and design your layout at ikea with a design center expert. They can help you build it on their software so that you know what basket or drawer will fit best and where due to hinge location and down to the location of every hole you will use to assemble it just like you built it. It takes all of the guess work out of it for you. I have since wired mine with lights as well. It's exactly what I needed to organize my room.
Easy to AssembleCharles S.I did make a trip for hardware, we were short a couple of screws.
PaxNaimah T.Winner winner chicken dinner ! I love the entire system !
Great custom design able unit.LauraNice to be able to pick and choose shelves, drawers, bins, face surface, etc.
Fair value; slight changes could improve productGearyAssembly instructions should indicate which holes must be kept free for mounting hinges and assuring there is no clearance issue. Back panel should be spray marked with dots to show where nails should be located; or written directions should number of nails per side and top/bottom.
Paint does not adhere well to cabinet frame: I used olive painters masking tape to mark where holes should be kept free for hinges, and removing the tape resulted in paint being peeled off.
Why are we still using particleboard?ChrisFirst off let me say that I wish it were black but the gray is a nice new addition to the lineup. I probably could have gone with white for my room but I really wanted a darker color.
Now for the good, the bad, and the so so.
The good. It’s extremely versatile. I highly recommend building your pax layout in an Ikea store with an experienced designer. Why? Well when you do, they will add all that you want and then provide you a printout of what holes to mount your drawers, shelfs and whatever other items you want inside. Their software even accounts for where the door hinges will be. Trust me it’s worth saving the frustration.
Assembly is easy of the main unit itself. However, lets get two terrible things out of the way. The particleboard base and the height adjustable leg design do not work. It’s garbage and ikea should be ashamed of this. You get these inserts with cleats that you have to smack into particleboard with a hammer. Any attempt to move this unit ever so slightly with the legs extended is going to rip the inserts and particleboard right out. Good thing I keep JB weld around for garbage like this. Adding JB weld was the only way to get the inserts back in to the base. They ripped out huge chunks of particle board because of their installation. This is a major design flaw IMHO.
To give you an idea on my utilization of this item as I’m not using this as a wardrobe. I’m using it to house a 3D printer on a pullout shelf, a laser printer on a pullout shelf, to store a bunch of 3D print spools of filament and a bunch of things out taking up room in man-cave. Now everything is tucked away and super tidy.
PaxdanitaThis is a great system to customize many ways. Love the many shelves and drawers that we can buy organize exactly how we want.
Lower cost alternative rather thandavidLower cost alternative rather than California Closets
Once you put 1 together,NicholasOnce you put 1 together, the next one is so much easier/ faster to assemble
Great for the priceRachelThis is definitely worth the price, especially compared to the alternatives for a "custom" closet/wardrobe. However, the assembly of the back panel was poorly designed. There is so little space to nail in the tiny brads that it left big chips on the inside of the cabinet. Luckily, we have doors on ours, so they're only visible when you go into the cabinet, but it annoys me when I see them.
