Forget Open Plan – You Need Wardrobe Doors!

Wardrobe Doors make Sense

Over the past few years, the open plan concept has gone too far and many people have not even bothered to install  doors on their walk-in robes. Some home owners might still like this idea, but let’s be honest, who wants to see the insides of their robes from their bed?

Doors help to keep everything hidden away, so your bedrooms always look neat and tidy. The other benefits of installing wardrobe doors on your walk-in robes is that all of your belongings are kept safe and sound. You can actually have lockable doors on your robes, so little one can’t wander through, pets are kept out and burglars have another barrier between them and your valuables.

4 Different Types Of Robe Doors

You can install hinged, bifold or sliding doors, as well as mirrored doors.  The choice you make will depend on the size of your bedroom and whether you have enough room for regular hinged doors to open fully. Also, your interior design and personal preferences will play their own part in selecting the right doors for your robes.

Bifold doors: These are ideal if you don’t have much space between the bed and your walk-in robe, as they fold back on themselves and hardly take up any room. You can have solid or louvered bifold doors with the latter providing an interesting design style to your bedroom.

Sliding doors: If you don’t have much room for doors to open, but you do have the wall space, then sliding doors are a great solution. Barn doors are really on trend right now, so if your interior design can take this type of style, sliding barn doors make a massive impact on the look and feel of your bedroom. Add a matching door for the ensuite and you have a very modern and stylish décor for your bedroom.

Hinged doors: These are the normal type of doors that we have around the home and you can have just a single hinged door or double hinged doors on your walk-in robes. We can match the style of the other doors in your home, so it all looks co-ordinated.

Mirrored doors: Some people feel that mirrored robe doors have gone out of fashion, but they add a huge amount of light to your room and make your bedroom appear larger, which is fabulous in darker spaces. They are also very practical, because you have a full length mirror that we all use every single day when we are dressing in the morning.

So if your walk-in robes have a gaping hole instead of beautiful, functional and stylish robe doors, call Flexi Wardrobes on 08 9301 4200 or complete our online enquiry form and we will add some serious style to your bedrooms.


3 Reasons Why You Need Wardrobe Doors On Your Walk-in Robes

Walk-in robes are becoming very popular in new homes and with renovators as well, but the one item that is often forgotten are the robe doors. People seem to think that they don’t need to close off  on their walk-in robes, but there are some really good reasons why this isn’t necessarily so.

You can of course, leave your wardrobe doors until later, if you have a tight budget, but you really do need a door on your walk-ins for the following 3 reasons.

1.     Hide All The Mess In Your Walk-in Robes

With a wide open entry way to your walk-in robes, every time you walk by you are going to see any mess you have in there. You might even be lying in bed reading a book or watching TV and depending on the layout of your bedroom, you can see right into your walk-in robe.

It is fair to say that many of us are not too tidy when it comes to our walk-in robes, so installing a door is going to keep all of this out of sight and out of mind.

2.     Give You A Secure Area

Many of us have valuables that we keep in a lockable safe, but if this safe is kept in a lockable walk-in wardrobe, then your valuables are doubly secure. You might also want to keep your jewellery, camera gear and other valuable items in your walk-in robes, because you might have nowhere else to store them!

Installing a door simply makes perfect sense, particularly when you can fix secure locks to the door and put an extra security between burglars and your valuable items.

3.    Can Complete Your Design

Who wants a gaping hole in the wall of their bedroom? When you have gone to all of the trouble to design the layout and the style of both your bedroom and your ensuite, please don’t forget the robe door, as they will complete the whole design. You can match them to your robe space and to your ensuite door, as well as to your other furniture in the room, so that you have a cohesive design, rather than a mishmash of different styles.

    4.  Robe Doors

At Flexi Wardrobes, we can design the door for your walk-in robes to perfectly match your design style and decor, and we can make them strong and tough to give you added security.
