Modern minimalism made easy with custom size made to measure sliding wardrobe doors

Modern interiors now incorporate minimalist design elements such as smooth sleek lines and glossy finishes, with no trace of a handle or hinge insight. This sophisticated style has now been growing in popularity since the 90’s and is something that we have all adapted to, whether we live in a new build or a more character styled houses of an earlier decade.

So how have we managed to embrace this design concept with such ease ?

Sliding wardrobe doors first received interest back in the 1970’s however it has taken until now for them to evolve into a sophisticated accessory for any home that wants to create additional space whether for storage or living.

The most obvious solution that our custom size  made to measure wardrobe doors provide is that of additional storage space and these doors will undoubtedly assist with this problem.

They allow floor to ceiling areas of space to be totally dedicated to storage rather than losing valuable space that borders conventional wardrobes due to their non-exact fit, to the space that’s been allocated to them. Such spaces soon become untidy due to the overspill from the wardrobe – storage boxes appear on top and the side space between wall and wardrobe becomes a handy cavity to park the odd pair of shoes. With sliding wardrobe doors however, everything is hidden and out of sight !

In fact the panels for the sliding doors are now available in such a vast array of colours and finishes the wardrobe itself doesn’t even look like a wardrobe. Instead they offer a stylish backdrop and become a significant design feature rather furniture fixture.

This revolution in design means that the sliding wardrobe doors do not have to be limited to use only within the bedroom but can also be used throughout the rest of the home – their versatility is now without question.

The most popular trend for living space in recent years has been open plan. However whilst this offers convenience and space for social gatherings within a home it does also mean that there is nowhere to hide – or more importantly nowhere to hide anything! This is when sliding wardrobe doors can serve another purpose, as they can be used to section space off for alternative use, whether this be storage or even home office, play area or laundry space. The fact that the doors can be made custom size made to measure means that they can be made to accommodate any area, big or small, enabling you to create that little inner sanctuary away from prying eyes.

In today’s society when the cost of living space is a premium we are all trying to maximizing the potential of our limited storage space. We are all guilty of hoarding items, which we no longer really need either for sentimental reasons or with the view to recycle at a later date, or to even because we simply buy too much in the first place. Whatever the reason for our abundance of personal possessions, trying to arrange them in an organized, inconspicuous way within our conventional wardrobe space is sometimes an impossible challenge.  A space saving solution for this kind of dilemma is to fit custom size made to measure sliding wardrobe doors.
