There are many good reasons to upgrade your bedroom's wardrobes. Maybe you want extra storage capacity for your latest clothing purchases? Perhaps you want a different look from your bedroom furniture to match an updated set of bedroom linen or wallpaper. There again, it might simply come down to the fact that you want nothing more than a change. Whatever the reason you have for new wardrobes, it will be a good idea to consider sliding doors for them. What are the main benefits to be had from sliding wardrobes?
To begin with, hinged doors that are fitted to the majority of bedroom wardrobes, need room in front of them to open. If your bedroom is small or you have other furniture — such as a dressing table or even a bed — in front of them, then you may not be able to open them fully. In turn, this makes accessing your wardrobe in the morning to choose something to wear a hassle. On the other hand, being able to slide your door fully across from left to right, or vice versa, means finding the garment you are looking for becomes child's play. Sliding wardrobes are consequently suited to all sorts of bedrooms where there is limited space or which are used in multi-purpose ways, such as guest rooms that double up as a home office.
A Cleaner Look
If you install sliding wardrobes in your home, then the look you will achieve becomes very unfussy. Although there is nothing wrong with a free-standing wardrobe, there is no doubt that furniture of this size will always come with a certain amount of visual impact. On the other hand, well-designed sliding doors look less imposing. This is especially the case with fitted wardrobes, of course, particularly those which run from floor to ceiling. When shut, they will virtually disappear from view, especially if you choose the same colour scheme as the other walls in your bedroom. Many sliding wardrobes don't need handles, either. Again, this makes them blend into the background with astonishing ease.
Cover Awkward Spaces
Although conventional wardrobes can only fit into certain spaces in bedrooms, fitted ones with sliding doors can occupy virtually any space. Sliding wardrobes can be fitted into the eaves of a room, for example, or cover up the nooks and crannies you will find around chimney breasts and so on. So, if you have an unconventional bedroom space that you'd like to make look a little more normal, sliding doors are the obvious choice!
