Before buying a wardrobe, measure the space it will go in to make sure it fits – its height, width and depth.
Yes, sliding wardrobes are a fantastic space-saving solution, particularly in compact rooms. Their doors move sideways instead of outwards, so there's no need to clear floor space before opening your wardrobe.
The average double wardrobe is 2.2 m (H) x 3 m (W) x 70 cm (D); however, larger and smaller styles are available. Some designs feature additional rails, drawers, doors and compartments.
This depends on your space, home and style. Sliding wardrobe doors are perfect for compact spaces and move from side to side. Whereas wardrobes with swing doors open into the room and offer the widest view of your belongings.
Swing door wardrobes feature hinges enabling their doors to open outwards. They offer a full view of their contents and can be built in any shape – rectangular, corner shaped etc. While wardrobes with sliding doors are constructed on runners, allowing the doors to move from side to side. This makes them popular in small or compact spaces.
