IKEA is famous for its simple and timeless designs that easily fit in most rooms. We keep sharing ideas on how to incorporate them into your decor and hack them if necessary. IKEA Pax wardrobe is a simple and cool piece to add to your clothes and shoes, although you might say it looks too ordinary or even cheap. If you think so, it’s not a problem: you can hack it so it fits your room perfectly, looks super bold, and even makes a statement. I have prepared a few ideas that might inspire you. Let’s get started.
Mirrors are a great idea to add value to the doors of a Pax wardrobe. You can change Pax in different ways and you can give the doors a different look – modern or vintage. You can opt for framed mirror doors with eye-catching handles or mirror doors with criss-cross frames for a classic look. The frames can’t just be white – try slate blue, muted green, navy, or any other shade that goes with your home decor. A simpler idea is to put small cut out mirrors on the doors and some buttons – such a hack doesn’t take much time and looks cool.
Change colors or doors yourself
The most popular IKEA Pax hack is repainting or completely changing the doors. The first is a simple hack: paint the doors the color you like and that goes with your interior: anything from blush to emerald is welcome! Find some creative handles or knobs to match the new look: leather handles, brass handles, vintage knobs, or other parts. Changing the doors will be a little trickier, but it’s worth it! Remove the existing doors and install wooden or plywood doors, chic molded panels, or smooth and shiny glass doors. The handles and knobs are back up to you and the look you want to achieve.
Some other ideas could include changing the handles to make the Pax look more chic and putting cool panels in the doors – brightly colored blue and red accents make the doors stand out. Make your wardrobe more creative with round buttons in different heights. My favorite hack is covering the doors with printed fabric – wow, so cool! Get inspired and hack your pax!
