To just want a really narrow thin wardrobe??

I think I must be being unreasonable.

They don't seem to exist ANYWHERE.

I need a changing unit with cupboard or small wardrobe - something for box room nursery with built in clothes space (pref hanging)

But maximum width can be 72cms / 27 inches ish!!!

Any ideas?

Ikea single pax ones?

As for changing units, I did it on the floor.

Was going to suggest the Ikea Pax ones!

We have 4 in our room and 4 in the kids rooms, in our room we have one each flanking our bed and two together in the alcove so it looks like a regular wardrobe. This way means I can have a hanging rail and he can have all drawers though.

They also do ones that aren't quite so deep.


JackieTheFart · 13/06/2013 22:09

Pax are only 50cm wide, they do another one which might be less than 72cm but I think is 75cm.

Cot top changer?


BoyMeetsWorld · 14/06/2013 07:23

Oooh Pax looks perfect thank you! Now just to try & find a local one on eBay :p

Also whilst I'm at it does anyone know anywhere that does storage units like the Ikea Trofast (ie trays in a frame) but without the high bit at one side so it's quite low all the way along & would fit under a window ledge?

There is a Trofast that sounds like what you want. There is more than one style.


LeMousquetaireAnonyme · 14/06/2013 07:33

I have a trofast like that which can be used as a bench, too. here


OhYouBadBadKitten · 14/06/2013 07:36

We ended up having one custom made as we wanted it to be 70cm. So we found a local joiner who could make a cupboard and put a hanging rail and shelf into it. Not such an affordable option but we were getting desperate!


BoyMeetsWorld · 14/06/2013 08:07

LeMous that's perfect than you! Bad kitten - how much did a custom made one set you back?

We had a handyman cut down the 100cm PAX to fit a 72cm space perfectly. Couldn't tell you how much the work cost as he was on a day rate doing lots of other things but it took him maybe half a day.


OhYouBadBadKitten · 14/06/2013 16:11

£350 Blush as I say, we were pretty desperate.

This children's Hemnes one is only 66cm wide and has hanging space.


BoyMeetsWorld · 14/06/2013 22:01

That hemnes one is even more perfect!

Ikea pax comes in a 36cm depth, only in the white finish though I think.


cartoontrickster · 13/08/2013 22:15

oh you want one that's not as wide!
ignore me!Grin

We have the Hemnes and it's great.
