At Sliding Wardrobes World, we’re all about creating the best possible storage solutions, by providing an outstanding service from start to finish; we pride ourselves on our excellent design and detailed fitting services, and on always meeting deadlines. That’s certainly what we did in the case of one of our latest projects, when a customer in Sutton Coldfield, near Birmingham, asked us to install some fitted wardrobes with sliding wardrobe doors at their home. They were delighted with the end result – and so were we! 

With this job, the client had very specific needs in terms of finish and interior storage. Equally, the project had to be in keeping with the elegant, modern surroundings of the property, which included smart wooden floors and contemporary ceiling spotlights. 
To meet their needs, we created a beautiful, custom sliding door system. The carcass had a high gloss finish, and we made the sliding doors from high quality aluminium; we used soft close doors to ensure they were easy and quiet to close. 
Behind the glass on the wardrobe doors, there was a striking graphic of black stones complete with some bright red leaves. On each side of this, two further doors, made from our versatile Proform PD10 panels, were finished in a high-gloss white vinyl and with a dandelion pattern design, offering pleasing symmetry on each side of the graphic.

Inside the wardrobe, the whitewashed pine finish interior incorporated soft close drawers, room to store shoes and plenty of space for hanging clothes, making the end product highly functional as well as smart-looking. 

The leaves and flowers graphic made use of one of the most recent additions to our insert range, Art Glass Film, and it’s an option that’s growing in popularity with our customers. With this method, a graphic is printed out on PVC before being bonded with glass permanently. What we love about this solution is that it offers a whole new way to design any interior. It also means that an extensive selection of graphics can be put to use in any of our hinged, bi-folding or sliding door systems. 
We’re continuing to expand the library of graphics we have available, and our current wide range allows customers to take their pick from depictions of architecture, landscapes, textures, flowers, and abstract graphics. In the case of our Sutton Coldfield customer, we feel the subtle design of the white dandelions offers the perfect contrast to the bolder red leaves of the graphic. This Art Glass Film adds some energy and boldness to the room's interior design.

What’s more, safety is also enhanced since the graphic acts as a safety film for glass, and will secure any cracks by keeping the glass within the frame.
