Consider these when purchasing your sliding door wardrobe
When someone is considering the purchase of sliding doors for wardrobes to update their existing wardrobe or they are buying a new wardrobe there are many options out there to choose from. And although each option has its pros and cons this article will discuss our faviourite 5 and their benefits.
5 best door finishes and their benefits
1 – Mirror Wardrobe Doors
Mirror sliding doors for wardrobes open up a room expanding it and making it feel more spacious. They also rebound light around the room which can bring a little bit of joy to a dull room!! Its affordable and functional a place to get changed in front of and check yourself out when your feeling Foxy! It’s only $200 (inc GST) per door.
2 – White glass wardrobe doors
Our favourite white glass for wardrobes is the OPTI super clear white glass by Viridian Glass (www.viridianglass.com/) they love glass and we love their glass! This glass soaks in the beautiful light streaming through a window and disperses it gently around a room. Rather than being super reflective like the mirror wardrobe door this glass finish is perfect for a beachie home which is north facing and gets a lot of light. Its smooth and elegant and doesn’t cost a whole lot at $270 (inc GST) per door.
3 – Laminated/Melamine Board wardrobe doors
We love Polytec’s range of laminated/melamine board from Polytec for Wardrobe doors. They have great colours which suit a range of styles they are affordable and they look Sexy as! The flat panel look is sleek and sophisticated and the woodgrain finishes make your wardrobes a statement (https://www.polytec.com.au/products/wardrobe/wardrobe-melamine-board/)
The different terminology can be confusing e.g. laminate and melamine. Melamine is a type of laminate. There are a few variations of laminate however, the one used most commonly in cabinetry is low-pressure laminate which is what is commonly referred to as melamine.
4 – Thermolaminate Door Wardrobes
Thermolaminate Doors are really Foxy on Wardrobes. They can be flat panel or shaker style so they can have as much character or as little character as you want them to have! They can have a mirror or white glass inset into the middle or they can have a real sexy hamptons style. Thermolaminate got a bad wrap in the past for peeling back (mainly because it was used in kitchens and gets wet and peels) however technology has improved significantly over the last 10 years and the Thermolaminate doors especially for wardrobes are a real hit! They look sexy and don’t break the bank!! About $800 (inc GST) per door installed.
5 – Polyurethane Painted Doors for Wardrobes
These are the ultimate Foxy wardrobe doors. The polyurethane painting process is undercoat then two coats of 2pac polyurethane. With these wardrobe doors you can choose any colour in the Dulux range and beyond. You can choose from a massive range of routering profiles (shaker styles) that suit your home and decor. These are the most expensive of the five best sliding door styles but they look BLOODY SEXY!!! They are about $1,100 (inc GST) per door and are worth every penny!
I’ve found that these five styles of wardrobe sliding doors are the best for beachie locations like on the Northern Beaches of Sydney! So there are my favourite 5 door finishes I could have mentioned many, many more.
