What are the Advantages of Sliding Doors?
When it comes to furniture, there are two main options when it comes to the door fittings and fixings – hinged and sliding.
There are pros and cons to both but we think that sliding doors offer far more advantages than hinged doors, especially on furniture. Even better, sliding doors work great on all kinds of furniture items and not just wardrobes. Take a look at these seven advantages of sliding doors…
Anything that enhances the style and look of your home can only be a good thing as far as we are concerned and there are all kinds of style options when it comes to sliding doors.
We love the mirrored finish that many customers opt for when it comes to their sliding wardrobe doors, as well as the frosted glass options that is popular too. Or, you can opt for super-sleek all wood doors. The truth is that there are all kinds of options to choose from, so there is an option that will suit your interior design scheme.
#2 Not just the bedroom…
We have already hinted that sliding doors are not just for wardrobes. Designers are using them increasingly in other rooms in the home, from the doors on fitted furniture in the study or home office, to items in the living rooms and hallways too. The myriad of uses for sliding doors is almost limitless.
#3 Make a space bigger
Mirrored sliding doors especially, contribute to making a space feel and look bigger but the fact that they don’t swing open also contributes to this (more later). Sliding doors tend to also sit flush with the item of furniture they are attached to and so create very little bulk or clutter in the eye line – something that instantly makes the room look and feel bigger.
#4 Hassle-free access
A great quality and one of the many welcome advantages of sliding doors is the fact that you can gain access quickly and with very little hassle. This is because the doors open wide enough for you to have plenty of visual and physical space to reach stuff.
#5 Maximising space
One of the most well-known advantages of sliding doors is that fact that they, along with the fitted furniture they are attached to, maximise the space in a room. Fitted furniture means it makes the best use of space.
#6 Maximise storage
The innards of any cupboard may be fantastic but, if you cannot gain access to put things on the shelf or pull them out then all that marvellous storage really isn’t worth much, is it? With sliding doors, you instantly have the ability to open up the area, see what you have, spot things easily, move things around easily and all without battling a hinged door that doesn’t stay open.
#7 Wide reach
And finally, in our list of seven advantages of sliding doors, is the fact that you can open those doors super-wide! You can see in to every bit of your wardrobe, or cupboard, something that is simply fantastic as well as being amazingly convenient.
