Six Reasons to Invest in a Sliding Wardrobe For Your Bedroom
Choosing the right wardrobe for your bedroom is crucial for both aesthetic and practical reasons. You must be able to store your clothes, shoes and other belongings properly, but you also need your wardrobe to look good and not take up so much space that it renders the rest of the room impossible to use.
Opting for a sliding wardrobe is a great way to meet the above criteria, as well as add a sleek, innovative and custom-made vibe to your bedroom interior design. Here are six compelling reasons why you should consider replacing your stand-alone wardrobes with custom furniture with effortlessly sliding doors.
Sliding doors offer the indisputable benefit of having doors that glide inside each other, rather than opening out into the room. This saves a lot of space, especially in smaller bedrooms. Wardrobes with sliding doors can be installed anywhere in the room, even right by the window or door with this huge design advantage. They are a safer option too, as the doors tuck away when the wardrobe is opened, rather than swinging out into the room and becoming awkwardly placed and a risk for people bumping into them, or causing a free-standing wardrobe to topple over.
Many bedrooms are awkwardly shaped, especially in older houses with sloping or low ceilings. Many standard sized wardrobes will not easily fit in an oddly-shaped room, or can only be positioned in a way that cuts off other valuable storage space, such as narrow alcoves, cubbyholes or chimney recesses. Sliding wardrobes are tailor-made and custom-built to fit precisely into the available space, however tricky or small. They can be as large or small, narrow or wide as space allows, and as the customer requires to fit their clothes and belongings inside. Sliding doors can also be fitted to existing built-in shelves or freestanding clothes rails.
Easy to Install
Sliding wardrobes are the ultimate easy customer furniture to install. There is no need to manhandle heavy furniture up one or more flights of stairs, nor negotiate large and bulky wardrobes around difficult corners. Simply take the measurements that you require, order your custom sliding wardrobes or doors and they will be installed easily and with minimum fuss. No need to take up the carpet, have castors fitted to the bottom of furniture or try to match the size and color of other items of bedroom furniture.
Choose Your Own Style
Another reason to choose sliding wardrobes is the massive range of styles, colors and finishes available. You really can have exactly what you want to suit your bedroom interior design. A popular option is to add mirrors to the doors to give you an added use for them, or frosted glass to reflect light back into the room and allow you to see what’s inside before opening the doors to select your outfit for the day. However, it doesn’t stop there. You can opt for traditional woods or veneers or make a statement with bold metals, plastics or even leathers or vinyl in crazy colors.
A free-standing wardrobe offers limited options for clothes storage – you tend to have to stick with the existing rail height, shelf space, boot storage space, etc. Sliding wardrobes allow endless versatility to position your chosen storage solutions and just the right height and to fit precise dress lengths, accessory hooks and so forth. You can add drawers for chunky jumpers or separate areas for spare bed linen. You can incorporate a laundry bin or add additional shelving or clothes rails at different heights. It is all entirely up to you.
Finally, sliding wardrobes are not as expensive as you might think. You can balance the cost with the benefits of customization and work with your interior design experts to choose where to make savings in your design costs and what areas you wish to prioritize. You will gain a top-quality product that won’t wear out, break or topple over, meaning that you can enjoy your investment without worrying about how long it will last. Adding mirrored doors does away with the need for separate mirrors that can cost a great deal to purchase and install. Finally, your sliding wardrobes will not fall out of fashion, nor break up the visual line of your bedroom. They will remain an elegant, practical and highly enviable part of your bedroom and your inimitable style to be admired by visitors and appreciated by you and your family for years.
