Pax Hinged Door Wardrobes

The hinged door systems are fairly simple and straightforward. The only points to note are these:

  • Check the boxes delivered are what you ordered. There will be a lot and we have included here a list of what to check
  • Just because you saw it in the store or in the catalogue doesn't mean the combination shown is possible. This is not strictly true, but a sliding door internal layour may not work with hinged doors and similarly a hinged door layout won't always work with sldiing doors. This is not always obvious - see below.
  • The hinges are usually sold with the doors but always packaged separately.
  • The corner wardrobe comes with hinges for its door and the two doors that will open either side of it. These are different to the standard hinges and move in a way when opened so as not to catch. They also have a push buttom system and therefore do not need a handle (one should not be fitted either).
  • The handles are always sold separately except for the Vikdel mirrored doors, which come with a chrome half mood handle. Holes need to be drilled in the doors for the handles as there are several different sizes.

Things that catch you out - the hinges!

The main one is that the bottom hinges occupy holes 3 and 4 when counting from the bottom. So you cannot put a drawer at the bottom on the hinged door system. The lowest level you can put a drawer is at hole 5, in practice you do this at hole 7 as Ikea have designa  wire basket to go on the lowest level of your wardrobe to circumvent this problem.

There are three hinges on each door on the 201cm high. The middle hinge pair occupy three holes as they are higher on the left than on the right. On the 236cm high ones there are 4 hinges and these occupy 2 extra pairs of holes. Wherever these go you cannot put any internal fittings. You cannot put any drawers that over lap them either. unfortunately Ikea staff and their electronic planner does not always accont for this, so check what you are putting where with repsect to the hinges in the middle. usually it doesn't matter as this is more often than not hanging space, but you should look out if you have a lot of drawers or the jewelry trays as these can often be desired at this height.

Hakima wrote about the furniture assembly service received:

My husband and I purchased a few furniture items over the Christmas period and decided we would get some professional help with assembly, since we barely had time on our own. I found flat pack amigos via google and I filled out the quote option for my request of service. Immediately I received communication along with a very fair quote from Edwin. Prior to contacting flat pack amigos, I had shopped around with other competitors for a quote and was astonished at their prices. I felt flat pack amigos fit my budget and already I was impressed with their level of customer service, so I booked with them. Edwin our assembler came the very next day, he professionalism and his quality of work was above standards. He was punctual to the time agreed upon, came fully prepared with his tools, worked on the furniture immediately and worked fast. In this line of work it can get messy with boxes, styrofoam and lots of packaging, however Edwin took consideration in placing everything in one corner with little to no mess. Overall, my husband and I were extremely happy with the service provided and would recommend this company to anyone who needs help with furniture assembly, I promise you will not regret it as its a win-win for your pocket and for your furniture.

Chris was quite simply superb. He worked tirelessly throughout the day to assemble 3 Ikea combination wardrobes, 4 chest of drawers and 3 bedside cabinets. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend.

Alexandra wrote about the furniture assembly service received:

I am very happy with the service. I contacted another furniture assembly company but they were unable to service my area. Brendan was very friendly, prompt, clean and efficient! I highly recommend to others and will do so for my friends and colleagues.

Miranda wrote about the furniture assembly service received:

I was wary at first when I booked the service to put together a sideboard. I wasn’t keen on spending extra, but have a useless all thumbs husband who reads the instructions back to front so this was a godsend. Getting a quote was seamless. Richard was a thoroughly nice bloke, professional and efficient arrived on time, did not use four letter expletives unlike my hubby and completed the job perfectly. Thanks you so much will definitely use again
