Project Overview

Continue to step-by-step instructions
This D.I.Y. Advice is part of a series How To Install Laundry Cabinetry

Step by Step Instructions

1 Install a powerpoint
2 Find the studs
3 Measure and mark where the ironing centre will go
4 Pre-drill the holes
5 Mount the ironing centre
6 Hang the door
7 Attach the door handle
8 The side and top panels
9 Attach the side and top panels
10 Secure the side panels
  • Step 1. Install a powerpoint

    Before you start installing the ironing centre, you might need to call in a licensed electrician to install a powerpoint. Also, read the instructions before you start the job.

  • Step 2. Find the studs

    Use the stud finder to find the studs on the wall that you’re going to mount the ironing centre on. Mark their location on the wall with a pencil. You need to find six places where you can drill screws into the wall to properly secure the ironing centre. 
  • Step 3. Measure and mark where the ironing centre will go

    On the wall where the ironing centre will be mounted, measure 680mm up from the floor. Mark this spot. This is where the bottom of the ironing centre will sit. Measure and mark the centre of the wall. Measure the width of the ironing centre.
  • Step 4. Pre-drill the holes

    Transfer onto the back of the ironing centre, where the fixing points are on the wall. Use the drill to pre-drill the six holes into the back of the ironing centre.

  • Step 5. Mount the ironing centre

    You will need someone to help you lift the ironing centre into place. Check with a spirit level to make sure the centre is sitting straight. Use the drill and screws to secure the ironing centre to the wall.

  • Step 6. Hang the door

    Line the holes in the brackets on the door, with the holes on the ironing centre. Use the drill and screws to attach the door to the ironing centre.

  • Step 7. Attach the door handle

    Line up the handle with the holes on the door of the ironing centre. Insert the screws through the back of the door and into the handles. Use the drill to tighten the screws and secure the handle.

  • Step 8. The side and top panels

    If your ironing centre isn’t recessed into the wall, you will need to attach the side and top panels. There is also a channel in the panels where you can run the power cord on the iron. 

  • Step 9. Attach the side and top panels

    Place the rubber strips from the kit on the top edge of the ironing centre. Place the top panel on top of the rubber strip. Slot the side panel into place. Use the drill and screws to secure the panels.

  • Step 10. Secure the side panels

    Open the ironing centre and drop the ironing board down. On the left hand-side there are two pre-drilled holes. Drill screws into these to keep the panels secure and flush.
