PAX + BILLY double ideas…


Materials: PAX, BILLY

Description: Probably someone doesn’t know that…

You can mix PAX and BILLY and you can mix also 2 different Billy doors (glass and wood).

In fact, I placed a MOREBO (401.040.91) (glass-aluminium) door above and a OLSBO (901.813.60) (wood) below on the same Billy shelf (400.857.09), in fact they are tall 96 + 98 cm.

The only important thing is to put the glass door above and the wood below because with MOREBO you can move the hinge where you want.


What else? Well, probably someone doesn’t know that…

The DEPTH of Billy and PAX corner are not soo much different (28 -> 35cm);
and the HEIGHT is the same if you put a Billy height extension unit (701.973.95) on the Billy shelf (400.857.09) (237 (overall) -> 236cm).. also if they really are THE SAME HEIGHT as you can see in the photo; i didn’t modify anything to have the same height!


Have your own mixed composition !!!

    Hi Mazinga
    your bookcases look great! I am planning to do something similar but width seem to be a problem. Billys are either 40 or 80cm wide while Pax doors are 50 cm wide. How did you adjust that? Appreciate any quidence on this. Thanks

    I think you can use them, because some PAX doors (for example 098.760.44) are 194cm tall (for 202cm frame -202.145.66-)
    While Billy doors( 201.040.92) are exactly 193,1 cm tall, and not 194 as IKEA says.
    I measured for you the exactly tall of a Nexus door (998.116.80) that i have in another room in a 202 frame and it is exactly 194,3 cm tall, not 195 as IKEA says.
    Anyway Billy and Benno have a 7,5 cm base that allows you to use Pax doors on them, also if they are 1,2 cm higher than Billy doors.
    Good job!

    Clever Idea! I have actually been thinking about mixing the Billy and Pax myself but getting a 80cm Billy plus 20cm Media Shelf and attaching them together, then putting couple of 50cm high gloss PAX doors on. I assume PAX doors would fit a Billy cabinet? The reason is that I need a shallow cabinet that is no taller than 202cm and the Billy is the perfect size. The shallow Pax wardrobes are all 236cm.
