Sliding wardrode doors come in finishes to suit all styles of property, from panelled traditional styles to contemporary glass finish, mirrored, timber veneer and glass.
It is even possible to digitally print your own image or artwork onto your sliding wardrobe doors - but do be careful; a vibrant wallpaper or wall paint colour is easy to change, whereas it is much more difficult to change your wardrobe doors once they are installed. If you choose a classic design, which you truly love, it should stand the test of time. The design can be printed onto toughened glass and coated, the finish and ink will be guaranteed for four years.
Sliding door frames can come in a variety of profiles, from sturdier box frames to slimline profiles in any colour you choose with a gloss, matt or satin finish and soft closing mechanisms. A mirrored finish can make even the tiniest bedroom seem bigger - this is an old trick but it really works, fooling the brain into thinking that the rooms seems bigger than it is and creating the feeling of extended space. Try to see if you can get a sample of the material and profile finish to check its compatibility with your colour scheme in the lighting conditions in your bedroom.
Panels can be divided into proportions to suit your room size and taste by the addition of multiple bars and panels into the wardrobe door. Use of mid rails can enable a combination of glasses and finishes to be used in a single wardrobe door.
When thinking about a new wardrobe solution, it is a good idea to bear the following points in mind:
Who is the end user?
Children will require sturdier finish profiles and soft closing mechanisms will prevent little fingers from getting trapped in the doors. Children like strong vibrant colours. When planning the wardrobe interior for a child, make sure that all of their most commonly used clothing is within their easy reach, otherwise you will find yourself having to continually tidy up after them.
What is your budget?
Do buy the best quality that you can afford. Cheap wardrobes may be a false economy if mechanisms fail and have to be replaced. Quality wardrobe doors will have a smooth closing mechanism and should last for years.
What is the style of the rest of your house?
It is important that your new wardrobe will harmonise with the style of your house and the other pieces of furniture that you have in the room. Are they traditional, classic or contemporary? Of course, if you plan to completely transform the whole room you can start with a blank sheet.
How big is the room?
