SLIDE DOOR WARDROBE is a variant of walk-in wardrobe as it also gives a broad and uninterrupted view of the clothing. It’s very optimal to use sliding doors for Smaller rooms where there is less space to accomodate both the bed and a Wardrobe adjacently in the room. Swing door wardrobes consumes the extra room space for the opening of the doors and the front portion of the wardrobe should be kept clear of things distrupting the opening. Whereas it saves that space and can be well utilised & accessed.
WALK-IN WARDROBE / OPEN WARDROBE is always considered as a Luxury element of a home as It Requires more space and a seperate enclosed corner to be planned. Even a small closet can be neatly planned as a walk-in wardrobe which accomodates all our clothing and a dresser. Walk-In wardrobes should be neatly planned and oraganised with a goodlighting to the wardrobe collections. It gives you a complete view of your clothing displayed. One can always convert an additional room to thier dream.
