How to Choose the Perfect Sliding Wardrobe Doors for Your Bedroom

Featured partner post

Over the past few decades, sliding wardrobe doors have gained their rightful place as the preferred choice of homeowners all over the UK.

The reason why is very simple.

They are far superior in functionality, are fantastic space savers, can be fitted in the most awkwardly-shaped rooms and add a stunning contemporary touch to any bedroom.

However, if you’re reading this article, you probably already know all this and are now in search of the perfect sliding wardrobe doors to fit you and your home’s decor.

From finishes and materials to liners and the number of panels, you’ve got plenty of choices ahead of you and we’re here to help.

Sliding Wardrobe Doors: Size Matters

First you’ll need to decide where to install your sliding wardrobe doors.

This can be a wall-to-wall, wall to end panel or inside a pre-made frame installation. Once you’ve figured this out, grab your measuring tape and define the width and height of your new wardrobe.

You can then select the number of doors you’d like your system to have.

There are two things to take into account when making this choice: If you’re considering installing an interior storage system later on you’ll need to ensure that you have enough room to open drawers and other components.

Taking into account the size of your bedroom door can save you the mistake of ordering panels that are too wide to fit through it.

This whole process will of course run much more smoothly if you’re ordering made to measure sliding wardrobe doors from a trusted UK manufacturer like Slide Wardrobes Direct, to perfectly fit your space.

What Sliding Wardrobe Look Are You Going For?

The style of your sliding wardrobe doors will strongly influence your bedroom’s overall look.

Where possible, it’s always best to plan your bedroom’s interior design as a whole to ensure every detail matches.

However, if you’re replacing old wardrobe doors it might not be as easy to do this and you will instead need to consider the existing decor and plan accordingly.

Either way, the best thing you can do is pick a style that fits around your personality and won’t look tired in a few months.

Check out our top three styles below.

  1. Clean & Bright – Contemporary Style

If you’re going for a contemporary look, coloured high gloss safety glass panels are an excellent choice.

Gloss is great for coordinating with existing modern finishes but you can also mix and match with traditional finishes for a trendy timeless look like the one below.

2. Traditional With a Modern Touch – Shoji Style

Make a bold statement with a fusion of traditional styling with modern materials.

Contrasting safety glass with wood colours can create a stunning combination and help you achieve a Japanese Shoji sliding door style with a contemporary touch.

3. Light Reflective – Mirrored

If practicality is at the top of your list, mirrored sliding wardrobe doors are twice as useful as any other finish.

Not only are they convenient for getting ready in the morning but also they give your room an illusion of more space. You can choose to have plain mirror doors or introduce a wooden effect middle panel for a truly unique finish.

Once you’ve measured your space and chosen the perfect style you’ll be ready to order your made to measure sliding doors.

Yes, it can truly be that easy to choose the perfect sliding wardrobe doors.

At Slide Wardrobes Direct, you’ll find DIY kits that include matching top and bottom track-sets, soft-close options, anti-jump ball bearing wheels and anything you need to fit your brand new sliding wardrobe doors so you won’t have to worry about anything else!
