Household Essentials® Stow Away® In-Wall Ironing Board fits into closets, bathroom, bedrooms, and laundry rooms for ironing made easy.  This unfinished cabinet can be stained or painted to match existing cabinets.  This ironing board cabinet installs into the wall, receding 3.5 inches into the wall between 16-inch on center wood studs (for metal studs, visit your local hardware store for suitable mounting hardware).  The cabinet comes about 4 inches out from the wall, with a sleek frame and a door that can be mounted to open to the right or left.  Inside the cabinet is a fold out ironing board that is 11.75 inches wide x 41 inches long.  Once open, the ironing board swivels from side to side 180 degrees!  It has a tapered nose and traditional rounded end for a familiar, comfortably ironing experience.  2 interior storage shelves keep the iron and ironing accessories handy.  Heat resistant panels on the top shelf provide safer iron storage, too. The closed cabinet measures 47.75 inches high, 15.75 inches wide, and 7.75 inches deep uninstalled.  It installs 3.5 inches into the wall and protrudes approximately 4 inches from the wall.  The ironing board opens 11 inches from the bottom of the cabinet.  Installed according to manufacturer's instructions, the ironing board will be 36 inches off the floor, with a built-in height adjustment that can raise it 2 more inches (for a 38-inch high ironing board).  If a different height is required (or preferred), adjustments must be made to the installation cutout height BEFORE the cabinet is installed.

UPGRADE with the optional light kit for an outlet with an automatic timer that turns the iron off.

The experts say,

"Measure twice; cut once. AND WATCH THE INSTALLATION VIDEO."


Prior to installation, determine:

1) Where the cabinet should go (i.e., what room, proximity of an outlet, sufficient clearance: 45 inches in front of the board and 66 across on center for full range of motion, location of 16-inch on center wall STUDS on which to ANCHOR, direction door should open)
2) How high the ironing board to be.  Adjust the cutout height accordingly.  For example, we recommend 25 inches off the floor for a standard 36-38 inch high ironing surface. 
For a HIGHER ironing board height, INCREASE the distance from the floor to the bottom of the cutout.  Example: 28 inches
For a LOWER ironing board height, DECREASE the distance from the floor to the bottom of the cutout.  Example: 22 inches

Rough Cut

Measure twice; cut once.
1. Measure.  Pencil sketch in your cut: 14.25 wide x 46.25 high, 25 inches above the floor (adjust +/- as desired for ironing board height).  Measure again.
2. Check that sketch will end with the ironing board at the right height and the cabinet BETWEEN studs.
3. Rough cut opening into wall.

Install Accessories

4. Install door hinges on the door (DO NOT ATTACH THE DOOR TO THE CABINET YET).  Hinges will be on the RIGHT to open the door to the right; Hinges should be on the LEFT to open the door to the LEFT.  Do not over tighten screws.
5. Install the accessory hook in the upper corner of the door, opposite from the hinges.  The hook should be 2 inches from the top of the door and 1.5 inches from the side of the door to not interfere with the ironing board or cabinet frame.

Installing the Cabinet into the Cutout

6. Lift the cabinet into the cutout, fitting it in bottom edge to top edge.
7. Anchor the cabinet to the wall studs by placing screws through the side of the cabinet, under the shelves.
8. Attach the cabinet door to the cabinet frame.

    This stowaway in-wall ironing board is a dream come true for us. It took a day for my husband and I to install and still need to do some touch up painting since we had to move the outlet up a bit. Thankfully, my husband is creative. Between my daughter and I pressing our clothes for work practically every day, the old bulky ironing board was constantly out and we didn't have a spot for the iron especially while still hot. We don't have laundry room so we installed this next to my closet in the master. The convenience is unsurpassed and I still have room for my spray bottles. We added a small hook on the top iron shelf for the cord once we wind it up. Love it!

    I bought a Way More Expensive board and what a piece of junk!!!!! Sent it back and kept researching for another ironing board.Purchased this board !!! and its the very best, easiest, ironing board I have ever used. The simple design of raising and lowering the board up and down is amazing. Less working parts to break. If you want a reliable, easy to use , great price and great looks, this is the board to buy. I have owned it for 8 months and couldn't be happier....well if I didn't have to iron I might be happier LOL

    Thanks, Jaime! And thank you for getting in touch with us again. We appreciate the follow-up.
Can I get the installation instructions online?
Check out the installation video under the Instructions tab for step by step instructions!
Can this mounted on metal studs?
Yes, but you'll need special drill bits (for metal, like titanium or cobalt) and hardware, available at your local hardware store. The unit comes with materials for installing into wood, so you will need different hardware. Again, check out your local hardware store for the right material for your studs. Just be sure to anchor the StowAway unit as directed, on 2 sides with screws, to properly support weight and torque!
What are the inside dimensions?
The inside dimensions of the StowAway In-Wall Ironing Board are 44 3/4" from top to bottom and 12 3/4" from side to side. If you need more dimensions, feel free to contact Customer Service at 1-800-922-5524.
Can I paint the cabinet?
Yes, you can! The unfinished oak can be painted or stained to match or compliment the colors in your existing cabinets or shelving.
How big of a space do I need for this cabinet to fit?
Absolute minimums are as follows: HEIGHT 48" (cabinet top to bottom is 47.75", but the ironing board opens 11" above the bottom of the cabinet, so taller is better in this case!), WIDTH 29"-66" (cabinet edge to edge of open door is 28.5"; full range of motion for the board requires the cabinet to be centered on 66" of open space), DEPTH 45" into the room (the ironing board extends 44.5" into the room when opened) AND 3.5" into the wall. The STOW AWAY does require 16" on center studs.
Can the Stowaway In-Wall Ironing Board be mounted securely with only one stud?
Because of weight and torque, in-wall ironing boards need 2 studs to be installed safely. Any other installation voids the product warranty and may make the unit unsafe to use short and/or long term.
