Sliding Door Wardrobe

A new wardrobe can transform the way a room looks and feels and can be an excellent way to save floor space too. If your current wardrobe (or floordrobe) needs replacing, or you are redecorating a room, there are two main options to choose from; hinged wardrobes or sliding wardrobes. Both built-in wardrobes have their advantages and disadvantages, read on to discover more about each fitted wardrobe style to help you decide.

Where is the best place to buy fitted hinged and sliding wardrobes?

You can buy hinged and sliding wardrobes second-hand, pre-packed from several retailers or local custom furniture companies. The benefit of buying wardrobes from a bespoke furniture specialist such as Custom Creations is that you can ensure you are paying for exactly what you want, from custom dimensions to unique finishes.

Hinged door wardrobes

Hinged wardrobes are a timeless classic and can be designed to suit both traditional and contemporary interior design. Our fitted hinged wardrobes are available with a range of finishes from natural oak to matte neutrals for an ultra-modern look.

One of the main benefits of fitted hinged wardrobes is their increased visibility. Hinged wardrobes are easy to open up so that you can view your full wardrobe at once and put together outfits effortlessly. When deciding which wardrobe is suitable for your space, it is important to consider that hinged wardrobes require a certain amount of floor space in front of them to allow access.

Sliding door wardrobe

Fitted sliding wardrobes instantly create a modern look in any room and are available in a wide range of styles. For a 2 in 1 option, people often opt for a sliding door wardrobe with a mirror finish to replace a floor standing mirror. A mirror finish also creates the illusion of a larger space, which is ideal for smaller bedrooms.

Another reason fitted sliding wardrobes are ideal for small or box bedrooms is that they don’t require space in front of them and can be fitted in the wall to save space further. Built-in sliding wardrobes tend to also offer more interior space for belongings and can be designed with custom storage solutions to suit your needs.
