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.

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.

    Love my ironing board cabinet. It is exactly what I was looking for. I have the natural wood which I will paint to match the wall so it blends in. It is very sturdy, well made. I love the options of opening the door from either side and the different positions of the board itself. And buying direct saved me money as well and was quickly shipped. Overall I am very happy with my purchase.

    Loved it until hinge unexpectedly broke and door fell off wall breaking the other hinge. H.E. has no parts for replacement. So, I'm stuck trying to find a hardware store hinge size or no door. Pretty expensive unit for less than two years of use before breaking. Wouldn't have cut a hole in my laundry room for the this if I'd known.
