Sliding wardrobe doors add a touch of unique flair to bedroom furniture, here’s all you need to know about buying them

Sliding wardrobe doors are both practical and aesthetically pleasing. They’re space-saving and timeless, and are a great way to add a touch of personality to your bedroom. In this sliding door guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about one of the most versatile pieces of bedroom furniture available. From making sure you choose long-lasting, durable materials, to measuring up and getting the details right.

To make sure your sliding wardrobe purchase is one that will last you long into the future, read on more for our expert knowledge on buying a set of sliding wardrobe doors.

Where are your sliding doors coming from? Pick quality sourced materials

A house is only as strong as its foundations, and a durable sliding wardrobe is only as good as the materials used to build it. At Spaceslide, we manufacture all of our wardrobes and bedroom furniture on premise in our UK-based factory. Sourcing quality materials and intricately crafting and constructing our own wardrobes is something we stand proudly by. It allows us to guarantee quality and put our stamp of approval on each piece of furniture, before it becomes a long-standing part of your bedroom décor.

It’s important to keep this in mind when buying a sliding wardrobe, as it isn’t a purchase you’re likely to want to make again in the short-term future. Buy quality for years of use, you won’t regret it.

Buy with style in mind, but also for aesthetic longevity

The next part of our sliding door guide is where you’ll have the most fun – choosing how your wardrobe looks!

Once you’ve made the decision to purchase your sliding wardrobe from a trusted manufacturer using carefully-crafted materials, you can start to look at styles that will last as long as the wood they’re made from.

At Spaceslide, we work with our expert designers to create colourways and finishes that are both seasonal and evergreen, and that compliment a range of varied home decor looks and styles. The key element we aim for in each of our swatches and wood finishes, is that no matter how on-trend and seasonal they are, we ensure that they retain enough of a timeless element to see through the seasons, years and even decades.

We offer everything from modern and vibrant tones, such as Blush Pink, Duck Egg Blue and Denim, through to elegant classics, such as Satin Cashmere, Walnut and Cape Elm. Browse our latest colour trends here.

It’s all in the details

Don’t simply settle for a great looking wardrobe that’s made of solidly-constructed materials. Pick out some functional and useful interior storage, because no one wardrobe fits all. You might have an abundance of shoes, a large collection of suits, dresses or simply just a lot of clutter in varying shapes and sizes. Whichever way, it could mean the difference in choosing a hanger-orientated storage solution or an interior with plenty of drawers and compartments.

Details don’t just mean what’s inside, it can also mean going beyond simple colourways and looking at the finishing cosmetic touches that truly make your wardrobe your own. Using our design your own wardrobe tool, you can choose how many doors you’d like your sliding wardrobe to have, what type of doors you’d like and even how many panels you have on your doors. We offer unrivalled customisation because we realise that it’s these finer details that make your sliding wardrobe unique.

A truly bespoke wardrobe, fit for purpose

Every bedroom has unique quirks. Some of these quirks may make installing a fitted wardrobe slightly more difficult. We’ve thought of ways around this, and if you’ve got ceilings and walls with slightly un-even measurements or angles, you can add custom liners to solve this issue. We also provide end panels if there is no wall either side of where you’d like your wardrobe to go. Both of these options can be configured when going through the wardrobe configuration process.
