wardrobe, wardrobe doors, sliding door wardrobes

It’s time for a renovation as our room fixtures are getting to be quite drab. I do not really want to make any big changes and would like to go minimalist in my redesign. That’s why I’m thinking about sliding door wardrobes to replace my existing accordion louvered closet doors. This kind of doors are more space saving since there is no need to have a space allowance for when the doors are swung open. In considering this space saving wardrobe option, here is a quick checklist to follow:

  1. Choose Materials. Just like any other type of wardrobe doors, sliding doors can be made of different materials. It is important to choose materials not only based on their aesthetics but also based on durability. You want wardrobe doors that will not accidentally fall on you or jump off their tracks.
  2. Choose a Design. Of course, the wardrobe doors that you choose should match your room décor. The color scheme and the wood grain should complement the look and ambiance of the room. Some homeowners choose to have mirrored sliding wardrobe doors to create an illusion of more space. There are also sectioned designs where you can have different patterns and colors in each door panel.
  3. Choose a Supplier. There are a lot of companies that offer sliding doors. There are those that can supply you with the doors and leave you to do the installation yourself. There are also those that offer you the entire range of services from design consultation to actual installation. There is even a website that allows you to simulate the sliding door configuration that you want to have. Once you complete your design, the site can patch you up with a designer for consultation. You want to work with a supplier that offers you the kind of services and level of attention that you need.

I’m pretty settled on the idea of having new sliding doors installed. But, I’ve yet to get started on the design. Perhaps, it would be wise for me to take advantage of the convenience of the online design consultations offered by Simply Sliding Wardrobes. While I’m at it, I guess I’ll have to think about how I could maximize space on my entire wardrobe as well.
