Why choose sliding wardrobe doors

April 17, 2023

Wondering whether sliding wardrobe doors will work in your space? This type of door offers many benefits, and with an endless range of colour options, they can finish a room beautifully. Read on to find out how sliding wardrobe doors could elevate your space and add value to your home.

Are sliding wardrobe doors right for you?

Access

Sliding doors allow you to see inside the whole height of the wardrobe from top to bottom, so you’ll always be able to see the entire contents of the space. It’s the best access you’ll get to the left and right hand sides of the wardrobe, and with three doors on a triple track, you can get up to 70% of the opening accessible at any time. The sliding doors at Boston Wardrobes are a standard 2440mm high, letting you see and reach the top shelf easily. We also have the ability to do overheight doors up to 2700mm.

Space

Sliding wardrobe doors take up less floor space than hinged or bifold doors as they do not protrude into the room. This is particularly important in smaller spaces, where real estate for other bedroom furniture, such as bedside tables, is at a premium.

Aesthetic

There are endless design options when it comes to sliding doors, making it a breeze to either match your interior decor or make a bold statement. Depending on the door type you choose, you could select from 100s of colours or woodgrains, divide each door to include sections of mirror or tinted glass, or have them painted a specific colour. There are also frameless mirror options for a sleek and seamless finish.

Organisation

If you currently have an existing wardrobe without doors, it is needless to say that the room will feel a lot more tidy and organised by adding some sliding doors. Having the ability to enclose the contents of the wardrobe when not in use will open up the room and give you more space to enjoy your surroundings. Keeping the doors closed will also reduce the amount of dust entering the wardrobe.
