8 Ways to Reinvent your Sliding Wardrobe Doors

It’s not always a wise idea to go tampering with expensive furniture, but if you can’t afford to replace it completely, renovating is the next best thing!

You might want to give your bedroom a fresh look, though you might not have the budget available to do what you want. When this is the case, you might want to consider adding your own personal touch to your furnishings at home.

Below, we look at the top 8 ways to reinvent your sliding wardrobe, without replacing it completely!

1. Try adding mirrors

One of the best ways to reinvent your sliding doors, without replacing them completely, is to replace certain components. New frames and panels can be purchased to give your doors a brand-new look.

When considering new panels for your sliding doors, one of the first things that should be considered is mirrors.

Not only can mirrors add the illusion of space to a room, they can help you to bring your old doors back to life!

2. Add a lick of paint

Painting your old wardrobe doors is an excellent way to bring them back to life. If you have old doors with scratches on or you are simply bored of the colours, think about how painting the panels will look.

For glossy panels, it might be more difficult, but for panels with a matt finish, it’s entirely possible to give them a new, colourful look using paint.

3. Hang a curtain or two

Two possibilities are available with curtains. Firstly, you could set about removing your sliding wardrobe doors, keeping the internal storage and hanging curtains in front of the open space to change the way you open and close the empty space.

The second option involves keeping your sliding doors but hanging curtains or drapes in front of them. The door and curtain combo can add an extra sense of privacy, all the while decorating your bedroom walls in a new and unusual way.

4. Cover in wallpaper

Covering your door panels in wallpaper is a similar approach to take as painting them, offering a quirky, new-look to your wardrobe doors.

Choose a wallpaper that will tie in with the theme of your room and your home.

5. Play with textures

Certain textures or materials, mainly felt or cork, are viable options to replace or cover your wardrobe doors. Not only can they provide you with a sharp new look for your room, they offer a great deal of practicality. Both felt and cork can be used as notice board, allowing you to pin reminders or your favourite photos to your wardrobe doors.

6. Change or add handles

Changing the door components, like the handles, is a wonderful way to give them a fresh look. Consider replacing the current handles with different ones to bring them back to life.

7. Apply vinyl stickers

Applying vinyl decals or stickers is an idea to help you get creative. Vinyl stickers can be printed with your favourite words or images, then carefully stuck to your sliding doors. A clever way to add some colour to your room.

8. Remove the doors altogether

Another way to reinvent your wardrobe is to remove the doors completely, leaving only the interior storage solutions. An open shelving look can work, providing you take the time to keep your belongings tidy.

If you can’t afford to buy new sliding wardrobe doors, it might be worth looking how you can reinvent your doors on a budget. Try to reinvent your doors using one or several of the techniques above.
