How many times, when opening a wardrobe with sliding doors, placed in the bedroom or living area, have we noticed an awkward sliding movement of the door? Sometimes the door gets stuck halfway through the opening and more often than not, it drags the adjacent door behind it with the consequent opening of the other section of the wardrobe.
Shall we talk about the noise that a sliding door makes at the end of its closing movement?
All these minor inconveniences make the use of sliding door wardrobes rather annoying, so much so that customers generally lean towards the choice of wardrobes with hinged doors.
One of the cons of sliding door wardrobes is the wear and tear on the sliding systems: the constant strain on the mechanisms can lead to the need to fix the hinges and the closing and opening mechanisms too often.
However, wardrobes with sliding doors also have considerable advantages, the first aspect to consider is that they are space-saving: as they do not take up space when opening and closing the doors, unlike wardrobes with hinged doors, they are the ideal piece of furniture to fit into small bedrooms or narrow corridors.
The aesthetic factor plays a key role too: they are more aesthetic than traditional wardrobes because they generally do not feature handles, plus, they are chosen for minimal and timeless interiors.
Choosing wardrobes with sliding doors is not always a bad idea, quite the opposite. If you have limited space or simply prefer a more minimalist design, sliding doors are the optimal option for you.
It may seem obvious, but choosing high quality sliding systems will ensure a long life for your closet, avoiding all those minor inconveniences that are natural consequences of poor quality products and mechanisms.
In other words, say ‘yes’ to sliding door wardrobes, but watch out for quality.
