There is so much you can do with the Pax wardrobes and we are going to show you 15 amazing versions of it. Each Ikea Pax hack is unique and stylish and I think you will find loads of inspiration for your own project.

All of these ideas are great ways to add stylish storage to your bedroom, kitchen or living room.


Stunning Faux Wall Built In Pax Wardrobes

A great way to add storage in your bedroom is to create a false wall with built-in wardrobe space. This creates the illusion of not actually taking up space in the room. The ceiling appears higher and you adjust to the room being a new size.

This has been done beautifully by Helsingo in this bedroom, with the added bonus of being cheap to do by using Ikea Pax wardrobes.

The doors are custom made by Helsingo and match the decor perfectly.

Beautiful Scalloped Door Fronts

Another company that provide custom doors for Ikea furniture is Superfront.

We love these scalloped patterned doors for the Ikea Pax wardrobe.

They bring an element of fun elegance to the room!

Expensive-Looking Pax Wardrobe Hack

This stunning, expensive-looking dressing room closet is from Huizedop on Instagram.

They have added some detailed trims to the doors to make it look custom made.

The gorgeous leather pull handles are the perfect match for the look and the whole room is beautifully styled.

Simple and Elegant Kitchen Pantry Hack

This is such a brilliant solution to having the much sought after pantry in your kitchen. At Jenna Sue Design they have used Ikea Pax carcasses built-in against an unused wall in the kitchen to provide a shallow but really useful pantry.

We love the minimal look of the pantry, with tiny knobs so that the whole thing does not impact the space too much.

Stand Alone Walk In Wardrobe Hack

If you have the space for it, this stunning walk-in wardrobe solution from Een Goed Verhaal is a great idea.

They have lined up Pax units opposite each other to create an enclosed closet without having to build walls.

The macrame door cover is a fantastic way to finish it off with a bit of texture.

Awkward Shaped Built In Wardrobe

Loft spaces can be tricky when designing storage space, but this brilliant hack from Design Sixty Nine makes great use of a Pax system to fit into an awkward space.

You do need to make adjustments, but you are not starting from scratch with the Pa wardrobe.

The genius part is the use of colour to tie it all into the room.

Stylish Minimalist Pax Wardrobe Hack

We love the minimalist style of the doors on this Ikea Pax wardrobe hack from Style Juicer.

The doors have a very simple raised edging that gives them a bit more character, but not too much!

They have the feel of Japanese screens and really work well in this space.

Stunning Coloured Pax Wardrobe Doors

These gorgeous Ikea Pax replacement doors from Reform are an incredible way to upgrade your Pax wardrobes.

There is a range of styles, but we love the mixture they have gone for here.

Gold and dusky pink are a match made in heaven!

Misty Forest Mural on Your Wardrobe

If you want something a bit more interesting to adorn your wardrobes, this misty forest mural from Around the Houses, featured on Domino, is perfect!

You can find so many different murals to do this with on Etsy or Amazon, just search for large wall murals and make sure they are large enough to cover all of your Pax doors.

Then you just stick them on!

Stylish and Practical Coat Storage Hack

This is such a simple idea and treatment from Driven By Decor. They have created coat and shoe storage, ideal for an entranceway, with Ikea Pax wardrobes and a bit of DIY finishing.

We love the little touches of brass and white handles. Even if it’s quite a practical piece of furniture, there’s no need to hold back on the style!

Floor to Ceiling Mudroom Hack

Turn any wardrobe into a floor to ceiling closet and you will look at it in a completely different light.

This mudroom/entranceway closet hack from Bright Green Door does just that.

By sacrificing a bit of room space they have actually made their entranceway look bigger because all the clutter can be hidden away!

Walk In Wardrobe that Looks Bespoke

This is one of the best Ikea hacks we have ever seen. Erin Kestenbaum has taken the Ikea Pax to a whole new level by making it look completely bespoke.

By widening the gap between Pax units and using trims and crown moulding all over the place they have created a sumptuous walk-in wardrobe to be proud of.

We love the green colour they have used to finish it. It goes so well with the brass handles.

Ikea Pax with Pops of Colour

For a little bit of extra colour in your bedroom, this fantastic Pax hack from Livet Hemma is ideal.

They have used various colours in the panels of the wardrobe doors to create a vivid grid of pattern colour.

You can obviously play around with colours of your own choice to get the right look.

Gentleman’s Dressing Room Pax Hack

This is a gentleman’s dressing room to be proud of, and yet they have used Ikea Pax wardrobes to achieve it.

Featured on Style at Home, this closet has been cleverly built-in and painted.

The best part is the positioning of the brass knobs in the middle of the door like a grand Georgian house front door!

Multi-Function Walk In Closet Hack

We adore this bright and airy walk-in wardrobe from Crazy Wonderful.

They have built-in the Ikea Pax wardrobes and added baseboards and cornice to elevate the look.

The use of several different functional parts within the wardrobes is brilliant and provides a solution to every storage need.


The Ikea Pax is a brilliant starting point for everybody’s perfect wardrobe, pantry or closet. There is no need to spend thousands on bespoke carpentry or specialist bedroom storage designers.

We hope you have seen enough here to be able to go forth and create your own perfect wardrobes and closets at home.
