Is a cabinet ironing board right for me?
Check your space:
- Are your studs (wood or metal) 16-inch on center? (The cabinet that fits between the studs is 14.25 inches wide, hence the need for 16 inches).
- Do you have at least 28.5" (door open and board straight out) and up to 60" (for full swivel) of side-to-side wall space?
- Is that space clear of mechanical and/or electrical devices that could be damaged when cutting into the wall?
- Is there an outlet nearby to plug in the iron? Are you opting for the built-in light kit with outlet (sold separately)? If the light kit, we recommend a professional electrician connect it.
What is an in-wall cabinet ironing board?
And why choose the Stow Away cabinet?
A cabinet ironing board saves space and time by keeping the ironing board handy. The board sits inside of a cabinet that recesses into the wall. This hides the ironing board behind a an attractive cabinet door.
1. Height Adjustment: Board can be raised 2 inches even after the cabinet is in the wall.
2. Swiveling Ironing Board: Iron with your left or right hand comfortably.
3. Storage Shelves (2, in fact!) and Hook: Store ironing gear and hang-up freshly ironed clothes!
4. Warm Iron Storage: Heat resistant panels in the top left corner of the cabinet.
5. Optional (sold separately) Light Kit With Outlet: Build-in an outlet, or install in the wall right next to the outlet instead.
Is hardware included for wood studs and metal studs?
Yes and no. Hardware is included for wood studs. For metal studs, please visit your local hardware store to get the right hardware (and possibly drill bit).
Height adjusts even after it's in the wall!
Grab the board on either side near the back and lift it along the glides to raise the board 2 inches! Win! Further customize the height by adjusting the height of the cutout in your drywall.
If Cutout = 25" off the floor, then Ironing Board = approx. 36-38" high.
Swiveling board for right and left-handed users!
The Stow Away ironing board rotates 90 degrees to the right and to the left. That's a full 180 degrees across the front of the board, a.k.a. a left-handed board and a right-handed board in one!
Have 60" of horizontal wall space for full range of motion.
Stow Away covers fit most in-wall ironing boards with an ironing surface 40-42” long x 11.5”-12” wide.
Storage shelves and clothing hanging hook!
2 shelves keep all the ironing gear handy, from the iron to starch and water bottle! The top shelf has the heat-resistant panels, too, so a cooling iron can be put away.
Top Shelf: 12"H x 13.25"W x 4.375"D.
Bottom Shelf: 16"H x 13.25"W x 3.5"D.
Bonus, there's a hanging hook on the door so you can hang up your shirts as you finish ironing them.
Simply, ironing is better with a handy board that isn't an eyesore. A finished cabinet fits into your home and lifestyle.
Cabinets work for the laundry room, kitchen, bedroom, or closet!
Prefinished or take-home and stain!
Options. Choose the prefinished white or take home an unfinished oak that you can stain or paint at home to match your existing cabinets.
That's fitting your decor.
Optional kit with light and outlet!
For when an outlet isn't handy, built one in! This light kit with outlet is an optional accessory that is sold separately. It includes a 35 watt light with adjustable spotlight arm, auto shut-off timer (choose 15 or 30 minutes), and a 3-prong electric outlet.
Please have light kit installed by a licensed electrician.
Measure twice and cut once.
The cutout for the Stow Away Cabinet Ironing Board should be 14.25" wide, 46.25" high, and 25" off the ground (for an ironing surface at approx. 36-38" high).
To change the final height of the ironing board, modify the height from the floor of the drywall cutout.

Top Customer Reviews
That said, the craftsmanship and some of the materials choices seem more like 7th grade shop class than a professionally manufactured item. Too many shortcuts, where a few cents spent on better materials and attentive assembly could have made a better product for little or no additional cost:
- The interior box is plywood with a paper thin face veneer. This means it tended to lift up one of the shelves and it is much too thin to take a clear finish or stain without a blotchy appearance. A better ply should be used.
- The oak door is reasonably nice, but ours came with a large defect on the inside panel, a small defect on the outside panel, and wood not well matched in the frame (it took extra effort in staining to get all the frame pieces the same tone). Rather than sending out lousy doors and replacing them when customers complain, the manufacturer should get them right the first time. In our case, we'll live with the defects, since there seems to be no guarantee a new door will be any better.
- The screws are very cheap -- three of the heads snapped off during installation. Better screws and hinges might add a few cents to the cost.
- The metal heat shield is crudely attached, with staples through the aluminum and into the wood. The unit would be easier to stain or paint inside if this were attached with screws or, later, with brads -- I'd rather spend a minute attaching it than taking care to stain or paint around it.
- While the door and surround are actual oak, there is an oak-like trim around the sides. This is actually MDF (dense particle board) with another paper thin veneer, in oak. The main problem with these side pieces was the amateurish construction -- one piece was 1/8" too long and the whole thing was fastened with gaps and discrepancies where it fit the face frame. The interior box was stapled to this from the inside. Given the thin veneer over MDF, attempting to sand things even is likely to end in disaster. There's really no good excuse for the sloppy assembly.
- In addition, the trim from the face panel back to the wall is incomplete at the top and bottom -- presumably because most people won't see this unless they are tall (top trim) or bend down (bottom trim). However, it will trap dust at the pocket that's left at the top and it does show as missing from the sides if your wall isn't perfectly flat. How much more would a few square inches of oak faced MDF cost?
One point I'd add for those with 6" studs is that the side trim pieces can be trimmed back about 1" to set the unit deeper in the wall (if you have 2x6 rather than 2x4 studs). At least 1" of side panel looks necessary to hold the face frame. You can also fill in your own missing top and bottom trim pieces. This is what we did, and having the whole unit an inch deeper in the wall looks better to us.
Overall, the ironing board looks and works well enough when all is said and done. However, the manufacturer should be ashamed at the many shortcuts in quality and execution -- all of which could easily be avoided.
In addition I didn't have the luxury of dealing with wood studs so securing the unit to something required some creativity--went to hardware store got some 2x2s and gorilla glued them to the inside surface of the drywall both below and on the sides. This installation method has held strong for 1.5 years. The only other thing I would suggest & did before mounting was sand the inside of the unit wood-- I am fast and ruff (aka clumsy) on stuff this avoided any future slivers. I then painted the inside white (Behr Eggshell white paint) bc I am rather picky about how stuff looks. Last thing is that the board cover doesn't have as much "padding" as the average so I just bought another fluffy cover on Amazon--and sewed mitten clips to elastic to secure down the bulk on the back (bottom) side of the board.
