Sliding wardrobes have now been essential furniture in every home. Sliding door wardrobes are a more contemporary storage solution, but also an excellent option to go for, working well in numerous room types.

But we also want to make sure that the sliding wardrobes should exactly fit the requirements within the room. In order to do this, the measurements should be perfect.

What are the benefits of having a sliding wardrobe in your home?

Whether you’re looking to refresh your room, create some storage space or open up a smaller room to create the illusion of more space – sliding wardrobe doors could be the answer. We look at some of the benefits of investing in sliding wardrobes for your home.

A selection of light and dark surface finishes is offered to match current furnishings and decoration. If the more modern look is required, glass panels come in many different colours. Your sliding wardrobes can become the principal feature in the room and create an eye-catching centre point.

How to measure sliding wardrobes?

Measurements play a very important role in the process of fitting and installing sliding wardrobe doors. That’s why we would recommend you to double-check all of the necessary measurements carefully.

Measurement of Height

Before measuring the opening height decide what the bottom track will be fitted onto. If you have a hardwood or laminate floor the track will fit directly onto this. Use your measuring tape to size up the total height of the opening from floor to ceiling. At the recommended 650mm from the back wall to allow enough space for internal fittings.  If you have skirting, you will need to remove a portion where the doors touch the wall or install wall liners.

Measurement of  Width

A wall to wall installation requires no end panels and so you will need to measure the wall to wall width of the space available.  If you have coving and skirting you will need to remove a section of them to slide the strike plate in before installing. If your sliding wardrobe needs to fit between a wall and a doorway or window opening, you will require an end panel as part of your sliding wardrobe kit. for installations inside a pre-made frame, please give us the smallest inside measurement of the height of your frame and the biggest inside measurement of the width of your frame.

You do not require liners if you already have a frame in place so do not order liners with your sliding wardrobe kit. If you do, you will change the total measurement needed for the wardrobe doors to fit.

Tips To Keep in Mind While Measuring Sliding Wardrobes
