La Gibi asked on our FB group, “I would like to use that PAX wardrobe as a standalone. It will have some shelves, but I cannot find options for doors. I would prefer for it to have 2 doors; top and bottom.
What doors have you used?”
Sadly, there are only two lengths for PAX doors:
- 76 5/8″ (195 cm) to fit 79 1/8″ (201 cm) frame
- 90 3/8″ (229 cm) to fit 92 7/8 ” (236 cm) frame
Any other lengths, you’ll need to cut the PAX doors. The good news is, you can cut the doors!
Merken made 3 shorter doors plus 1 tall one for her PAX craft closet. She used an acrylic template to get the holes right. Then, drilled new cup holes for new sets of hinges for the PAX doors. See the full tutorial here.
I’d suggest iron-on edge banding the exposed cut edges of the PAX doors.
Make your own doors
Another option would be to go custom.
Hope you can get or make the doors you really want.
