Choosing the right wardrobe for your home can be a difficult and exhausting decision, they’re often an investment so it’s important you get the right one for you. Wardrobes can last well over 10 years, which makes choosing a style that will suit your home for years to come a very daunting decision. However, at raumplus we’re here to help. Continue reading to find out our take on hinged vs sliding door wardrobes.


Hinged wardrobes are seen as the traditional, classic wardrobe.One benefit of using a hinged door from a sliding door is that everything can be visible at once, you can open all the doors and see the complete interior. This makes choosing an outfit a whole lot easier, when all options are visible.

Hinged wardrobes don’t just have to be the traditional wooden stand-alone style. Hinged wardrobes can be made of glass or with patterned doors and often now they’re also fitted into your room so you can maximise space. Having a fitted hinged wardrobe looks sleek, subtle and they just blend into your room; what’s not to love?

Sliding wardrobes have become increasingly more popular over the past decade and with more and more styles to choose from, it can be overwhelming when browsing the market. Sliding wardrobes make a room look effortlessly elegant and polished. With their sleek design, they’re so subtle in your room, allowing you to maximise space and also use the space in your home more efficiently. Because they don’t open out into the room, they can take up much less space.

Not only do sliding wardrobes look good, but they also add value to your house. If you’re considering moving or renting out your home in the next few years, it may be an advantage to buy a high-quality wardrobe to add value to your house and make it look more appealing to a potential buyer.
