35 IKEA Pax Wardrobe Hacks That Inspire
IKEA is famous for its simple and timeless designs that fits most spaces easily, and we continue sharing ideas how to incorporate them into your decor and hack them if needed. IKEA Pax wardrobe is a simple and cool piece for your clothes and shoes though you may say that it looks too usual or even cheap. If you think so, this isn’t a problem: you may hack it so that it perfectly fit your room, looked super bold and even made a statement. I’ve prepared some ideas that may inspire you, let’s get started.
Mirrors are a great idea to spruce up the doors of a Pax wardrobe, they can change Pax in various ways and you may give the doors different looks – modern or vintage. You may go for framed mirror doors with some eye-catchy handles or with mirror doors with criss-cross frames for a classic look. The frames can be not only white – try slate blue, muted green, navy or some other shade that fits your home decor. An easier idea is to add small cutout mirrors to the doors and some knobs – such a hack won’t take much time and looks cool.

Changing Colors Or Doors Themselves
The most popular IKEA Pax hack is repainting the doors or changing them completely. The first is an easy hack: paint the doors with the color that you like and that fits your interior: anything from blush to emerald is welcome! Find some creative handles or knobs that fit the new look: leather ones, brass handles, vintage knobs or other pieces. Changing the doors will be a bit more difficult but it’s worth it! Remove the existing doors and install wooden or plywood ones, chic molded panels or sleek and shiny glass ones. The handles and knobs are again up to you and the look you want to achieve.
