Built-in wardrobes offer convenience to many households. A built-in wardrobe saves up a lot of space and gives your home a less crowded feel, no matter how small your home is. Another great feature of wardrobes is that they can be fully customized to whatever design you want and need for your house. One of the things you can customize is the door of your wardrobe.
Your wardrobe door is bought separately from the built-in wardrobe set. If you’re building your wardrobe yourself, it’s best to shop around for the best door that would fit your wardrobe. Sliding doors are more preferred than the usual swing doors with built-in wardrobes. This is because it maximizes the space that you have in your room. They are also tougher and less prone to damage and accidents. There are several types of sliding doors that you can install on your built-in wardrobe:
Vinyl-covered sliding wardrobe door
Vinyl is a excellent material for fences, but they also make terrific wardrobe doors. These doors are gyp rock panels that are covered with vinyl for a smooth, glossy look. They are paired with aluminium frames and tracks. They slide in easily because they’re quite light.
Mirrored sliding wardrobe door
If you want a door with a dual purpose – to seal your wardrobe and to serve as a full-length mirror – you’ll want to have a mirrored sliding door. These mirrored glass panels are convenient and safe to slide. Mirrors also give the illusion of a wider space in the room, so it’s perfect for rooms that are quite small. These come with aluminium frames, or you can go frameless.
Paintable sliding wardrobe door
If you feel limited with the colours available for the plain panels and vinyl panels, you can always go for full customization. There are also plain, raw gyp rock panels that you can paint and match with your existing walls. With these raw panels, you can express your creative side. They’re available with standard aluminium frames and tracks as well.
Opti-panel glass sliding wardrobe door
Opti-panel glass gives the effect of frosted glass, but without being able to see the contents of your wardrobe. It’s a fantastic addition to your room as it gives a modern contemporary look. Opti-panel doors can come in colours of light green or white (these are the most common), or in any colour you wish. They usually go best with silver frames and tracks.
Multi-panel sliding wardrobe door
Lastly, for a more modern and stylish look, multi-panel sliding doors are the best. You can customize the opti-panel glass into different colour combinations. If you love to mix and match colours, or you want to go crazy with your wardrobe door, this is your door. They look best with silver frames and tracks.
In terms of price, the cheapest is the raw gyp rock, followed by the vinyl. The most expensive ones are the coloured opti-panels, even reaching prices as high as $1200. Just remember to shop around for the best prices, and only buy from shops that give the highest quality of materials.
