Choosing the right material for your sliding wardrobe

Published - 09 May 2016
Our sliding wardrobes come in a wide range of different finishes. What’s more, because our wardrobes are custom-made, we can create any design using the material of your choice. But which type of material should you choose for your finish? A wardrobe’s finish plays a major role in defining its aesthetic, so you should think carefully about what type of effect you wish to create with your sliding wardrobe. To help you make a decision, we’ve created a list of possible finishes and their aesthetic impact.

These types of boards are used throughout the sliding wardrobe industry due to their versatility and affordability. Dark, polished melamine boards look incredibly suave and sophisticated, whereas rougher, lighter-hued boards look warmer and more rustic. Overall, these boards closely resemble wood, so you should opt for a melamine finish if you wish to create a more traditional visual effect. Sliding wardrobes are often considered incredibly modern, but you can give yours an old-fashioned twist if you have it made from this form of material.

If you want to get in touch with the natural world, you can opt for a bamboo or rattan finish. These natural materials can give your sliding wardrobe a more organic aesthetic than most other options.
 
Whatever effect you wish to create with your wardrobe, we can help you achieve it. Choosing the right material is the first, crucial step in this process.
