Niesz Vintage traditional-bedroom
 

Niesz Vintage

70's Ranch Master Bedroom Remodel. We removed the old sliding doors and closet wall and installed 3 of the Ikea Pax wardrobes and trimmed them out with crown molding.

what is the height of the ikea pax wardrobes used here?

They are 93 1/8" tall. We have 8 foot ceilings, so we had just enough room to add the crown molding.

Why does the middle wardrobe stick out further than the others? - The center wardrobe is not flush with the others....

It was done mainly to add interest to the crown molding, but it also allows adjacent cabinets to be open at the same time. If they were all the same depth, the handles would hit and prevent the doors from opening completely.

Could you tell me where you got the pulls for the closets? Love them!

Thank you! The pulls are from Ikea, as well. I believe they are Lansa. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60138759/

Hi,
I think the crown is 3.5 inch. We first attached a small piece of wood to the top of the wardrobes, and then nailed the crown to that.
Hope that helps. :)

Thanks Paulines 169, :)
We have the Ikea pullout wire baskets in the bottom of each wardrobe. We have our 'most often used' shoes in those and any extra are in the second bedroom closet.

The room is approximately 14'W x 16'L. It narrows to 12'W past the closet alcove.

I have a angled ceiling that I'll be opening up and these wardrobes have such a furniture look that the open space above will look correct vs. just having a strange interior closet space.

I've seen these at Ikea, but they seemed flimsy in the showroom. Are they more sturdy installed???

Hi Christine, ours have gotten daily use for the last 3 years and we have no complaints. I'm sure that the stability or sturdiness of ours comes from the fact that we have it installed in an alcove. So, the individual wardrobes are not only attached to each other, but also the walls on either side, the back wall, and to the ceiling by way of the crown moulding. I imagine that a freestanding unit ( or units) would have a different feel.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Houzz added this to MDF
MDF is usually less expensive than solid wood but when painted, looks much like smooth wood, without the grain pattern.
