A sliding cupboard design is not just contemporary and cool to look at, it serves the purpose of being space-efficient. Most urban homes don’t have the luxury of space to accommodate swing-door or hinged wardrobes (for designs, go here). If you’re looking for space-saving storage solutions, sliding wardrobe designs should be on your list.

Also, modern sliding wardrobe designs come with an array of shutter options for you to choose from — membrane, laminate, PU and acrylic, mirrored, plain, frosted and lacquered glass. Take a look at some of our sliding almirah designs for bedroom interiors and pick your favourite!

Other Colours and Finishes for Sliding Door Wardrobe Designs

Colours can breathe life into your bedrooms and since wardrobes occupy a big part of your space, you can use them to get the colour palette that you want. The colours can be chosen in most of the materials available for sliding cupboard designs. Since the finishes of these materials can determine if the colours are highlighted or subdued in your room, you must choose them with some deliberation. Check some of them out here:

Glossy Laminates

If you want to increase the brightness in your room and you are looking for an economical way to do so, then using glossy laminates is your solution. The variety in colours available for laminates is vast compared to other materials.

Matte-Finish Laminates

Some of you may not be a big fan of shiny surfaces and matte-finish sliding cupboard designs might be more to your liking. If that is the case, we suggest you get matte-finish laminates for your room to evoke luxury.

Mirror Panels for Sliding Wardrobe Designs

Full-sized mirrors in the bedroom are not only appealing, they are also practical and handy while dressing. Mirror-panelled sliding doors are a boon to compact bedrooms in such cases. We suggest you consider mirror panels along with coloured laminates when you’re looking for sliding cupboard designs for your bedroom.

Lacquered Glass-Finish Sliding Cupboard Designs

Lacquered glass increases the visual appeal of your bedroom. Although they are not easy to break, you must be careful with the large panels. Apart from this, they are also moisture- and heat-resistant and hence quite durable.

PU-Finished Sliding Wardrobe Design

PU paints have high resistance to abrasions, cuts and tears. PU can seal the inner material against all chemicals and hence is quite durable. It is expensive to get but yields the best results in your interiors. So if you can, go for a PU-finished sliding cupboard design.
