Sliding Wardrobes – Types of Doors & How to Measure

Sliding wardrobes in Milton Keynes are incredibly adaptable. Use them in an alcove that already exists from wall to wall, or install them between a wall and a wardrobe end panel to create your own closet area. Divide off ill-shaped rooms or sections using shelves for a smooth, cohesive appearance. They can also be used to create useful storage not just in bedrooms but in any other space.

Types of Sliding Wardrobe Doors

Double-Sided Doors

These doors are perfect for making unique room separators or classy walk-in wardrobes. Constructed from a solitary panel, people might choose to contrast or have an identical impact on both sides. Mirror, wood look, and glass finishes are available, and all doors wider than 650 mm come with soft-close.

Minimalist Doors

They have a sleek aluminum frame, two or four-panel designs, and a contemporary edge. Glass, wood look, and mirror finishes are available for selection. Additionally attractive are the brilliant white/blue shadow glass and the distinctive linen-like wood appearance.

Shaker Doors

There are several ways to personalize these doors to fit your style. They are available in two, three, and four-panel designs. The panels and frames can be finished in a variety of finishes, including wood effects, mirrors, and glass.


Other Accessories for Sliding Wardrobes

A variety of accessories are available to assist with the installation of your sliding wardrobe doors. Among them are:

End Fillets

These are the handy strips that you may trim to fit small spaces, such as the space between your skirting board and door.

End Panels

When your doors aren’t put wall to wall, these offer a protective covering for the side of your closet.

Fascia Strips

To provide a smooth appearance, these self-adhesive strips attach to the front edge of the top track.

Fixing Blocks

These closet end panels firmly fasten to the ceiling, wall, and floor.

Opening Height Reducers & Spacer Blocks

Any spaces left between the top of the closet door and the ceiling are filled in with these accessories.


For sliding wardrobe doors to glide open and shut smoothly, tracks must run along the top and bottom of the wardrobe space. After measuring your closet space, choose the one that fits your chosen doors the closest in size, and then cut to fit. Additionally, they come in silver or white effects to match the design of your doors.

How to Take Measurements for Sliding Wardrobes?

You must measure your space precisely before placing your order for sliding wardrobe doors. To verify the floor and ceiling levels, use a spirit level. Uneven flooring can cause the doors to slip accidentally. Prior to taking the measurements, it is crucial to level the floor and ceiling if they are not level. You can place the bottom track and liner upon the carpet if it has been fitted; make sure to compress the carpet as much as possible. The top track system can accommodate a height variation of up to 15mm. Measure in the center and both ends, such as at A, B, and C, at least three times. When providing us with height measurements, use the smallest measurement possible.

Use a spirit level to check for bowing or curving walls. Before installing the striking plate, you will need to remove a portion of any coving and skirting if you have any. Take two measurements at the top and bottom. To avoid any obstructions during wardrobe installation, please make sure to measure (A) above any skirting board and (B) below any coving. When providing width measurements, use the narrowest measurement available.

If obstacles like doors prevent your opening from extending wall to wall, utilize an end panel. Once it has been trimmed to size, it is easily affixed to the wall with timber battening or fixing blocks. In the wall-to-end panel scenario, measure the distance from the inside wall to the outside position of the intended end panel. Measure the length between the outside edges of the two end panels.

Concluding Remarks

Don’t account for strike plate and liner thickness while measuring. The proper aperture width will be computed automatically if these items are present. Since you won’t be receiving strike plates, liners, or end panels with your order, we won’t lower the measurements if you are installing your liners to level the aperture inside your installed parts.

You can use these measurements to get your sliding wardrobe prepared from any trusted service provider, such as Fitted Bedroom &  Wardrobes.
