The Great Wardrobe Debate: Sliding vs. Hinged Doors

When it comes to designing your dream bedroom, the humble wardrobe is often overlooked. Nevertheless, this unsung hero deserves some serious consideration!

Sliding Door Wardrobes:

The Sleek and Modern Choice

Consider this, a streamlined silhouette against the wall, maximizing every inch of your precious bedroom space. That's the magic of sliding door wardrobes. Our Sliding Door Collection embodies this philosophy perfectly. Inspired by the fourth dimension, the Tesseract Wardrobes make an edgy statement with their geometric patterns. For those who adore a harmonious interplay of lines and textures, Latitude Wardrobes offer a symphony of varying materials and colors.

Here's why sliding doors are the best choice for compact spaces:

  • Space Savers: They eliminate the need for clearance required by swinging hinged doors, making them ideal for smaller bedrooms.
  • Minimalistic Marvels: Their sleek design creates a clean, contemporary aesthetic, perfect for modern living.
  • Effortless Access: A gentle slide unveils your wardrobe's treasures, perfect for those mornings when every second counts.

While sliding doors are space-savers, accessing the entire wardrobe at once can require reaching around the open panel.

Open-Hinged Wardrobes:

The Classic and Timeless Option

For those who cherish the timeless appeal of hinged doors, our Open-Hinged Wardrobes offer a world of possibilities. They provide a more traditional aesthetic, reminiscent of a bygone era.

Our Open-Hinged Wardrobes transcend mere functionality. The O-Series comes in a range of collections, from the Decolux's opulent charm to the Urban Edge's modern sophistication, from the timeless Classical to the trendy Gen-Z, our wardrobes offer a sense of openness and easy accessibility. Each wardrobe tells a story, reflecting your unique personality and taste.

These hinged beauties offer:

Unimpeded Access: With doors that swing open wide, you have a clear view and easy reach of your entire wardrobe, making outfit planning a breeze.

Aesthetic Appeal: Each collection boasts distinct design sensibilities, from the timeless charm of Classical to the edgy sophistication of Urban Edge. Choose a style that complements your bedroom's overall aesthetic.

Customization Potential: Hinged wardrobes allow for greater flexibility in terms of personalization. Add mirrors, internal shelves, or drawers to tailor storage to your specific needs.
The only drawback to hinged doors is that they require clearance to swing open, which can limit furniture placement in smaller rooms.

The Perfect Choice? It All Depends

Choosing the right wardrobe for your bedroom can be a daunting task, but with this guide, you'll be able to make the right choice.

Room size: If you have a small bedroom, sliding wardrobes will maximize your space. Hinged wardrobes might be suitable if you have ample room for the doors to swing open.

Accessibility: Consider how much space you have around the wardrobe. If there's limited clearance, sliding doors offer better accessibility.

Storage needs: Hinged wardrobes might be better if you need easy access to various compartments. Sliding wardrobes work well if you prefer a streamlined look and prioritize full wardrobe visibility.

Aesthetics: Consider your bedroom's overall design. Sliding wardrobes complement modern spaces, while hinged wardrobes can add a touch of classic elegance.

Durability: Consider the quality of the wardrobe and its durability. A well-made wardrobe will last longer and require less maintenance.

Maintenance: Some wardrobes require more maintenance than others. Consider how much time and effort you will devote to keeping your wardrobe looking its best.
