IRON-A-WAY Deluxe Ironing Swivel

This is the ironing board that we went with. Because of the location where we decided to put in (near the entryway of the master bedroom) we had to have it swivel 90 degrees in order for it to work. It wasn’t difficult to install and it looks good and fits well in our space.
The price generally hovers around $420.00 (if in stock)

IRON-A-WAY Deluxe Ironing Non Swivel

It would be nice to have a traditional “non-swivel” ironing board to alleviate some of the potential issues (support, more hardware, swivel when you don’t want it to) if you have the space to do it.
The price generally hovers around $375.00 (if in stock)

Iron-A-Way Handi-Press Surface

Frankly, this built in ironing board comes with the best customer reviews on Amazon. It has 34 (4.5 Star) reviews. People like it for three reasons:
1). Functional and easy
2). Price
3). Simplicity of design and ease of use.
Again, this is not a swivel one and you will need to check the area of your home you are putting it in to make sure there is enough space
The price generally hovers around $115.00 (if in stock)

Hide Away Ironing Board

This hide away ironing board is not made by “Iron-A-Way” and I don’t know the specifications and installation features of it. What I do know is that it has a nice clean simple design to it, but it may have hardware issues that caused some people to return it.
The price generally hovers around $215.00 (if in stock)

So, our cabinet guy budgeted for a “built in ironing board” cabinet.  I had never seen an ironing board that was built into the wall before.  I have seen a bed built into the wall on “Full House” in the uncle’s upstairs room.  I didn’t quite know what to think about a built in ironing board.  But, since it was budgeted into the home we decided to go along with it.

Here is the Iron Away that we purchased.  After considering all of the areas in the home where we should put it (I wanted laundry room, my wife wanted master bedroom).  Since, I generally don’t even iron my clothes (I just throw them in the dryer) and my wife is the one that uses it most, we agreed to put it in the master bedroom:

Installation was pretty easy (1. Secure it to the studs with screws; 2. attach the ironing board brackets and board) and it is currently hanging next to the master bedroom entrance, waiting for the cabinet maker to enclose it.  (More photos to come).

Our first installation attempt failed however, because we had it positioned too high.  It was about 45 inches off of the ground and would not have worked for anyone under 6 feet tall.  So we took it off of the wall and re-installed it at 35 inches above the ground which should be perfect.

We bought the 90 degree swivel ironing board because of the location.  You see, if ours was a non-swivel type than we would be pretty nailed to the wall while ironing.  Now, we can swivel it outwards and have plenty of room to iron.
