Reinvent and Refresh your Sliding Wardrobe Doors

It’s not always a wise idea to tamper with expensive furniture, especially when it comes to sliding wardrobe doors. But if you can’t afford to replace it completely, then renovating it is the next best thing. You can give your bedroom a fresh new look, though you may not have the budget available to do what you want. If this is the case then you might need to consider adding your own personal touches to furnishings in your home. Take a look at our top tips to reinvent your sliding wardrobes…

Reinvent and Refresh your Sliding Wardrobe Doors

Add Mirrors


This is one of the best ways to reinvent your sliding wardrobe doors without replacing them completely, new frames and panels can be purchased to give your sliding wardrobe a brand new look. If you’re thinking about new panels for your sliding doors, then one of the first things that you can do is to consider mirrors. Not only do mirrors add the illusion of space to a room, they can also help you to bring your old doors back to life.

Repaint Them


Painting your old wardrobe doors is a great way to bring them back to life, if you have old doors with scratched on or you’re simply bored of colours, consider repainting the panels. Glossy panels are a great option but a matt finish might be better and give them a new colour look using paint.

Hang some curtains


Two possibilities come with curtains, firstly think about removing your sliding wardrobe doors, keep the internal storage and hanging curtains in front of the open space, this will change the way you open and close the empty space. Or you could keep your sliding wardrobe and use hanging curtains or drapes in front of them. Door and curtain combinations can add extra privacy and also decorate your bedroom in a new and unusual way.

Cover in wallpaper


Covering your door panels in wall paper is similar to painting them but will provide a new and quirky look to your wardrobe doors. Try choosing a wallpaper that will tie in with the theme of your room and your home.

Play with textures


Some textures or materials, usually felt and cork, are options when it comes to replacing or covering your wardrobe doors, as well as providing a sharp new look, they also provide practicality. Both felt and cork can be used as notice boards, this will allow you to pin reminders or your favourite photos to your wardrobe doors.

New handles


If you already have handles you can change them or refresh them by adding new ones, it’s a great way to give them a fresh look so consider replacing the current handles with different ones to bring them back to life.

Apply vinyls


Vinyl stickers including decals are a great idea when it comes to getting creative, vinyl stickers can be printed with your favourite words or images, then carefully stuck to your doors. This is a great way to add colour to your room.

Remove the doors


You could remove the doors completely, this will leave only the interior storage solution, an open shelving look can work if you take the time to keep the shelves and your clothes tidy.

Where else can Sliding Doors be used?

Most people’s minds will spring to the bedroom when thinking of sliding doors, used for storing clothes and other personal belongings in a sliding wardrobe. There are, however, a range of other uses for sliding doors, in all areas of the home.

Where else can Sliding Doors be used?


Below, we look at the different uses for sliding doors, delving into the ways they can be used and where.

DIFFERENT USES FOR SLIDING DOORS


Sliding doors come in a range of styles, sizes and finishes, with different frames, panels and installation methods available to achieve different results. Whatever your reasons are for wanting sliding doors in your home, we are sure you will enjoy discovering the different uses for where sliding doors can be used.

Let’s begin!

Kitchen


Sliding doors can be used as part of your kitchen design, concealing elements of your kitchen that aren’t appealing to the eye. The pantry/larder is a great example of where a sliding door can be installed, as well as any utility type space you have attached to or as part of your kitchen. You might want to conceal your washing machine, tumble dryer and even your fridge freezer. This where a space-saving sliding door can come in incredibly handy.

Hallway


The hallway can get extremely messy if you’ve got a hat stand or somewhere to hang coats and jackets. Shoes will often live here too, if you don’t have space under the stairs or a porch area leading into your house. The combination of coats and shoes can lead to mayhem in the hallway and sliding doors are an excellent solution.

Living Room


All lounge and living room areas could benefit from having sliding doors to make storage easier. Books and DVD’s could be concealed behind the doors, as could games and other personal belongings which look like clutter at a glance.

If you have awkward space either side of a chimney breast, you can make the most of it with the installation of sliding doors. If you put your mind to it, you’ll probably be able to think of more ways that sliding doors can be used in the living room.

Bathroom


The bathroom can often provide opportunities to have sliding doors installed, providing you with a place to store towels and toiletries. Mirrored sliding doors would work well here, offering the impression that the room is a lot more lit up and spacious than it is.

Office


One of the places that can benefit most from sliding doors is an office where clutter can build up fast. A sliding door cupboard can provide you with different compartments to store your valuable documents. You can keep your domestic bills etc. in here too, separating things easily into different sections for ease of use.

Play Room


Children’s play rooms can be a real nightmare when it comes to clutter and toys lying about everywhere. Concealing boxes of toys and games behind sliding doors is a great way to keep things clean and tidy. This could also make it easier for your children to learn tidiness, putting one toy away before they get another one out.


Attic / Loft Conversion


If you have an attic or loft conversion that gets used as a hoarding site, you might be wondering how you can tidy it up to use as actual living space. With the introduction of a made to measure sliding wardrobe, you can have a place to put everything without leaving it out in the middle of the room or on the spare bed.

Garage


The garage can turn into another hoarding site if you aren’t careful. Before you know it, you have clutter everywhere and you can’t find what you are looking for.

Why not consider having sliding doors installed down one or both sides of your garage to make storing and finding things much easier. If you have a large garage, you will still have space to put your car inside as well!

What Kind of Wardrobe is Good for Suits?

The Perfect Wardrobe for a Man that Wears Suits


In the 21st century, more and more people are making an effort with their appearance in a bid to look fashionable, trendy and in generally good-looking. While the women of the world are often considered the one’s to make a lot of effort with their appearance, it seems a higher percentage of men are spending more time and money to look the part – but not in a way that you would expect.

What Kind of Wardrobe is Good for Suits?


It seems that the latest trend in the world of men’s fashion is suits. While suits have always been fashionable, you wouldn’t have expected to see a great deal of men wearing suits in previous years.

Nowadays, men seem to care more about their appearance, taking the time to purchase a range of suits to enhance their wardrobe ready for a variety of occasions. Going on a date? Wear a suit. A day at the races? Wear a suit. 9-5 job in an office where there is no specific dress code? Wear a suit anyway to look the part.

Tailored suits are the new trend


Suits are now considered to be super trendy, with more and more men learning the fine art of wearing a suit and dressing to impress. For a lot of men, wearing a suit is the done thing. Some men will have worn suits most of their adult life and will understand the importance of a good suit and how to look after it. If you are part of the latest generation of men coming through that are just starting to wear suits, however, there are some things you should know about owning suits and how to look after them.

Suit Wardrobe


As someone that is new to wearing suits, you’ve probably never had any real need for a wardrobe. Most of the clothes you have worn growing up have probably lived in a chest of drawers. While drawers are good for jeans and your day-to-day T-shirts, your suits certainly can’t live in drawers!

Every man that wear suits should have a wardrobe to hang them neatly. Not only will your wardrobe give your suits a place to live, it can keep them looking new, for longer.

What kind of wardrobe is good for suits?


A run of the mill wardrobe will usually do the trick if you are beginning to wear suits, but there are better options out there.

Sliding wardrobes are perfect for any man that owns an array of suits, with different shirts, jackets, trousers and shoes. A sliding wardrobe will provide you with interior storage to make looking after you suits easy.

The internal storage in your wardrobe is crucial when it comes to organising your suits and looking after them properly – and this is where a sliding wardrobe can come in handy. Different storage options can be considered depending on how you want to organise your suits.

The right storage will have different places for each item to live, with shelves for shoes and rails for your jackets. You can hang your shirts as well or fold them neatly in a different section altogether, if you want to segment things more efficiently. Ties and belts can have their own place to live too, if you opt for a sliding wardrobe with drawers. Your cufflinks and other suit accessories can be stored here as well!

Why are Sliding Wardrobes Best for Suits?


Rather than trying to cram your suits into a closet or hanging them on the back of chairs, your suits will have a proper place to live with adequate space to hang neatly. Creased or wrinkled suits will only require more maintenance, meaning they won’t last as long and will look older, faster.

If you are spending decent money to have a range of deluxe suits, you should take extra care to store them properly in a wardrobe that cares for what’s inside. With spacious interiors and a variety of storage solutions, designed to make organising your clothes easier, a sliding wardrobe is the perfect answer for anyone looking for a way to organise their suits more efficiently.
