Space-saving cabinet hides away the ironing board!
Installation Requires Cutting Into The Wall
How Do I Install This Ironing Board?
There are detailed instructions that come with the cabinet. We also highly recommend reviewing the video on this page to learn more about using and installing the Stow Away Cabinet Ironing Board.
1. Have 16"-on-center studs in the wall.
2. Cut a rectangle out of your wall.
3. Set the cabinet inside the cutout.
4. Secure the cabinet to the studs (wood or metal is fine, but we only provide hardware for wood).
Can this be mounted to the wall instead of in it?
No. This cabinet must be installed into the wall. That's how to support the unit against the force and torque of opening and using the swivel ironing board!
Check out our Iron 'n Fold Cabinet for an option that you attach to the wall (it sits on the floor).
Height adjust even after installation.
Board opens 10" above the bottom of the cabinet, so adjust your cabinet cutout to fit the height you want!
Note: If Cutout = 25" off the floor, then board will be approx. 36-38" high.
Then, once it's installed, the board can be lifted 2" higher thanks to the innovated inside height adjust! Just grab the board on either side near the back and lift it along the glides.
Right and left-handed comfort.
The Stow Away ironing board rotates 90 degrees to the right and to the left. Tighten or loosen how easily it swivels by adjusting the nut on the underside of the board.
Note: Needs 60" of horizontal wall space for full range of motion.
Note: Replacement Stow Away covers fit most in-wall ironing boards with an ironing surface 40-42” long x 11.5”-12” wide.
Shelving and clothing hook.
Heat-resistant plates to safely store warm iron. 2 storage shelves for accessories. Hanging hook for keeping ironing clothes fresh!
Top Shelf: 12"H x 13.25"W x 4.375"D.
Bottom Shelf: 16"H x 13.25"W x 3.5"D.
Installation Guide (see instructions with unit for full detail)
Cut a hole into the wall.
Cut a hole in the wall--between 16"-on-center studs--that is that is 46.25" tall x 14.25".
Choose the height of the cutout based on where you want the board to open. Board opens 10" above the bottom of the cabinet, or about 9" above the bottom of the cutout.
Set cabinet into cutout.
Before putting the cabinet in, pre drill the holes on the frame where the door will install.
Then, carefully lift cabinet into cutout, setting the cabinet into the bottom first, then pushing the cabinet flush into the hole.
Secure cabinet to framing studs.
Secure the cabinet to the frame studs. Screw right under the shelves.
Hardware for wood studs is included. For metal studs, please visit your local hardware store for the right screws!
Install the door!
Attach hinges to the door. Lift and align the door with the holes you drilled into the cabinet frame. (Best with 2 people!) Screw the hinges to the cabinet to attach the door.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I received one and had to return it because the thin veneer on one of the side trim pieces was bubbled and cracked. (see photo) The replacement had the same problem and had to be returned as well. In addition, the door was nowhere near ready for stain and varnish. There were splinters on every edge of the inner decorative molding, and the flat areas were still quite rough. Inside; the fold-out/swivel ironing board and its support structure were both made of particle board, which does not hold up well under normal use/stress and is impossible to repair if damaged. Particle board is also considerably heavier per board foot than real wood, thus making the ironing board difficult to manage for smaller people. The second one I received was not even fully assembled. There were pieces rolling around in the cabinet. And the holes in the ironing board did not line up with the holes in the metal support bar into which they were to go. ( i.e. It could not be assembled without re-drilling at least one hole.) One more quality complaint. The two trim/filler pieces on the sides were not flush with the cabinet front, and since they were made of the thinnest possible veneer, they could not have been sanded or planed flush.
Finally, although the Amazon side of the return process was easy, hauling a 60 box around the house and to the UPS store was not!
Overall, this product should, in my opinion, be removed from Amazon's inventory .
We were excited that this item was still available but were very unhappy with the quality of this unit compared to our old one. Workmanship is very poor. Plywood has delamination in spots and some staples on the back were loose or went all the way through. It is still usable but now what we had hoped for from experience.
Now that it is installed I am going to change my rating from a 3 star to a 1 star. It is of far worse quality than it first appeared. With the board down in the usable position it is very flimsy . There is so much give during use , you don't want to bear down on the iron very hard. Door is so misaligned that it is ugly. Way off to the left of center. Not very attractive.
Unfortunately there is no other ones available that would fit the hole I hacked out in the wall to mount it. BUMMER!!!
I forgot to mention that all the metal parts showed signs of corrosion due to high humidity!!!
A. The "plastic coating" on the board itself was cracked and peeling off right out of box. Not that big of deal when you put the cover on.
B. This is my biggest complaint, WIDTH!!!! If they were to manufacture this cabinet just 1/2" narrower it would be a five star product. At the current width I will go out on a limb to say that 90% of the people installing it will run into what I did. My studs are 16" on center but since humans build the houses there will be some errors. My bay was actually 14 1/8"ish. This means I had to run a sawzall down the entire length of the opening and what a pain and mess it makes. It would be much wiser to make the board 14" wide and if your stud bay is 14 1/2" you just add shims. It would be so much easier to shim the bay than to widen it an 1/8" to a 1/4". Luckily I have the right tools but I'm guessing a lot of people won't and they end up hiring someone or sending it back and patching a huge hole in their wall. It went from an hour long project to a three hour project because of 1/8".
