Your built-in wardrobe door options – a guide

To make the process of creating your dream made-to-measure wardrobe a breeze, we’ve put together this quick guide explaining your different options. 

From making the most of every inch of space to customising the internal storage, we all know that fitted wardrobes provide us with a wide range of fantastic benefits to enhance our lifestyle. But with so many different designs available, it can be a little overwhelming deciding which is right for you. So, to make the process of creating your dream made-to-measure wardrobe a breeze, we’ve put together this quick guide explaining your different options. 

Sliding wardrobe vs hinged door wardrobe

We’ll start with the basics. Do you want your wardrobe doors to slide along a rail or to open out into the room? There are benefits to both styles so think carefully before you make that decision. 

Sliding door wardrobes 

Sliding doors are particularly well suited for those looking to create a sleek, modern style bedroom.  As the doors slide open in front of one another, sliding door wardrobes are also great for smaller bedrooms as you don’t need to allow space for the doors to swing open. 

  • Modern look
  • Space saving design 
  • Smooth operation 

Hinged door wardrobes 

If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, hinged door wardrobes are the perfect choice. They come with an almost unlimited choice of handle styles, so you can be sure the finished look will perfectly reflect your style. 

  • Traditional style 
  • Personalised finish 
  • Open all doors at once 

Choosing your wardrobes doors

Once you’ve settled on whether you would prefer sliding or hinged doors for your fitted wardrobe, you’re now free to determine what might be one of the most important decisions you make in regard to your made to measure wardrobe – the style of door. 

That’s because the doors of your wardrobe will determine its final look and style and, as it’s such an important piece of furniture, the overall feel of your bedroom. So, you need to carefully consider not only how you want your wardrobe to look, but the overall theme of your bedroom before you make the final decision. 

Some of our most popular style doors include: 

Shaker– the most identifiable feature of a shaker style door is the simple square framed doors which make it a popular choice for classic style bedrooms. 

Artisan– a fitting choice for country homes and Georgian town houses, artisan style wardrobe doors typically feature a raised panel and decorative edging. 

Modern – a modern style wardrobe door usually features long, floor to ceiling panels with hidden handles for a minimalist design that’s ultra-contemporary 

Japanese – right at home in pent house apartments or top of the range new builds, the Japanese inspired wardrobe door boasts semi-transparent doors and sleek dividing lines.
