How to Choose the Perfect Sliding Wardrobe Doors

01/05/12

Finding and selecting the best sliding wardrobe doors is a fairly straightforward task, but it does require a few key considerations so you end up with a door that will fit the wardrobe and comes within your budget.

Plan Ahead

Start your selection process by planning for the new door. In some cases, that might mean taking off an old door or it might mean determining the feasibility of putting in sliders and solving any complications that might arise with different types of doors.

When planning ahead, set a maximum budget to narrow down the choices. A wide range of prices are available on wardrobe doors, so it’s important to determine your maximum. During the budget planning, determine whether to have the doors professionally installed. Installation will add to the final budget, so if you have reasonable DIY skills, you should definitely consider doing the installation yourself. It is actually quite straightforward to install sliding wardrobe doors.

Measuring the space is also part of the planning process. Make sure you follow our measuring guidelines to ensure you get the correct dimensions.

Style Considerations
