Do you feel locked in an age-old quest to find the perfect wardrobe door design for your room? Now, you definitely know the most obvious factor to consider, ie., space. But when it comes to picking the right door, there is so much more to consider. We’ve compiled a guide to help you pick the right door for your home.
When it comes to setting up your wardrobe, there are two important questions to ask: how much effort does this require and how much will it cost? While conventional hinged wardrobes don’t typically incur additional costs, customised doors need special hinges or fixtures that quickly add up. Additionally, with hinged doors, you have to account for the swing space of the doors right at the design stage. Sliding doors, on the other hand, require a full-track system and skilled technicians to set up making them slightly expensive right from installation. But, since the doors don’t swing open, you can use that additional space for a bigger bed or additional seating!
We all love ourselves a stunning sliding masterpiece, don’t we? But as amazing as that sounds, the track system for the sliding doors needs some tender, loving care from time to time. Hinged doors on the other hand are super easy to maintain, you wouldn’t even need a skilled technician to get the hinges fixed or replaced!
If you are someone that loves a contemporary and chic wardrobe straight out of the pages of Architectural Digest – a sliding door wardrobe is for you! Since these doors don’t require hinges and involve multiple doors, they are a perfect canvas for a variety of materials to complement the decor of almost any room – making them a styling favourite. On the other hand, if you favour a rustic or vintage appearance, hinged doors would be perfect for your space.
Hinged doors open up at right angles making them a perfect choice for corners, angled walls or designated wardrobe spaces. Since the doors can be fully swung open, these wardrobes can be customized to every square inch – a tie hanger on the inside of a door, for instance. But when you want a wardrobe for a room with space restrictions, sliding doors are the best fit (shout out to all the studio owners out there!). Since these doors don’t need that extra swing space, you get maximum storage in minimum space – a win-win situation!
Sliding doors are the go-to option for a stunning walk-in closet. The functionality of these doors make it easy for you to organise your clothes or visually plan your outfits. But the one big win for hinged doors here is visibility! Sliding doors can be accessed only one door at a time or a section at a time, making it difficult to get a full view of the wardrobe at once. The hinged doors can be swung open completely, giving a clear view of everything inside.
Your wardrobe door design is not something to be taken lightly and should be tailor-made. And we have just the team to help you unlock the wardrobe of your dreams. Whether it’s a chic sliding wardrobe or a rustic hinged wardrobe, with the right interior designers from Vibrant, you don’t need to compromise on style.
