Measurements for Pax Hinge Doors?
I am planning to do a similar hack to this one.
This is a hack to hang hinge doors onto a 75cm PAX wardrobe (which is designed for sliding doors) by cutting one of the doors down from 50cm to 25cm.
I have hung one standard door, which means I have a 25cm gap. Rather than buying another Ikea door, my local hardware store has melamine-covered chipboard “Conti Boards” in almost the right size – 2440mm x 229mm (15cm thick). They will trim the height to the required 2290mm, which means I may be left with a small gap of around 1.5-2cm which I can live with. So all I need to do is drill holes for the hinges and I should be away! I have a hinge hole cutter and the required drill bits
BUT! I am not confident in my own measurements. My question for you all is this: Does anyone have accurate measurements for drilling the hinge and screw holes on Pax hinge doors ? (The taller 229cm ones)
Many thanks — Mike
