Custom Sliding Wardrobes & Traditional Hinged Wardrobes

Choosing Between Sliding Wardrobes Or Hinged Wardrobes

Remodelling your cupboards at your home or office might seem like a daunting task. The good news is that it does not have to be. There are pros and cons to taking into consideration when deciding what style is the best suitable for your home or office space.

Sliding Cupboards

Sliding cabinets are a good idea if you have insufficient space. Sliding wardrobes slide open; it does not require any space to open the cabinet door. The clean lines of sliding doors are also very trendy and add to the minimal style that creates an illusion of open space.

Sliding doors are also safer than hinged doors. Should someone forget to close the door, there is no hazard of someone walking into an open door.

The cons of sliding doors are that it will create a bit of a situation if two people want to utilise the same cupboard at the same time. It will also make it difficult to clean as one of the doors will always be closed off the other door is open.

Hinged Doors

Hinged cupboard doors are very flexible; you can install them to open from any side that gives better access if two people need to utilise the cupboard at the same time. Hinged cupboards are also easier to clean as you can open both doors at the same time and there is no rail in the way for dust to gather in.

Hinged cupboards are also more durable. They are less likely to give troubles and are best for families with children. A hinged door that gets slammed is less liable to break, and you don’t have to worry about cupboard doors coming off the rail.

Hinged cupboards are more attractive therefore there is a wide variety of styles to choose from. You will also be able to access the cabinet better as the doors open completely which means you will be able to pack more into your cupboard.

On the other hand, there is a slight downfall to hinged cabinets. Hinged cupboards can make your kitchen feel cramped and overcrowded. Should you choose on a double stacked kitchen cabinet, you might want to opt for some glass doors to create a more open feel to your kitchen.

It is always a good idea to approach a professional when it comes to remodelling your kitchen cabinets. It is an investment in your home, so you want to get it right the first time.
