Adding a built-in ironing board is a great way to maximize space in the laundry room. Models made by NuTone are designed to fit between two studs on 16” centers and come with a shelf to hold the iron as well as a plug and light.

When the ironing board is extended, it pivots to allow it to turn sideways in tight quarters. The door on the cabinet is available in a number of styles and finishes ranging from natural wood to a beveled mirror.

To see what’s involved in adding a fold down ironing board to your laundry room, check out our video and article on How to Install a Built-in Ironing Board.
