Household Essentials Stow Away Ironing Board
Check your space:

- Space: Must have minimum space of 28.5" wide (door open) x 44.5" in front (board open) x 66" across the front (for board swivel)
- Hazards: Avoid cutting mechanical or electrical devices or wires during install
- Outlet: Install near an outlet to power iron
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.
