There are two main types of wardrobe door available - hinged or sliding. Both types come as framed or frameless doors and are available in a panelled or ‘one piece’ finish.


Hinged doors open outwards into the room. Hinged doors can be full height or broken into sections to suit the internal storage layout. Hinged doors allow you full visibility of your wardrobe’s contents.

Sliding doors move independtly of each other and can span the entire width of your wardrobe run. Sliding doors take up less space in the room because they do not open out into the room.

Framed & Frameless

Frameless doors are the height of sophistication and we offer some very premium finishes that are only available with frameless doors. Framed doors have a wider range of finishes available and are less expensive to manufacture.


Framed doors are available with any of the above panel configurations and can be hinged or sliding.

There is a visible frame around the finished surface of the door.

Frameless doors have a premium finish that goes right to the edge of the door and wraps around giving you a seamless finish.

Only our most premium finishes are available as frameless doors.

Internal Storage Layouts

Everyone stores things in their wardrobes slightly differently. We have a series of pre-designed internal storage layouts that cater for most needs and provide some exciting ideas for storage. Because we manufacture every fitted wardrobe from scratch, we can design and build any kind of internal storage layout you can think of.

So, if you love shoes - why not have a whole wardrobe dedicated entirely to the storage of your beloved footwear?


Storage Innovations

Wardobes should make the most of all the available space and make your life easier. Our storage innovations make it easier to see what you own, easier to find what you need and easier to access it.

We also offer some excellent products which can help make wardrobes more accessible for ythe toung, elderly or those with limited mobility. Your designer will be able to show you different storage ideas in our showroom and design them into your bedroom furniture.

A hundred pairs of shoes? No problem with a custom made shoe rack system.

Glass Top Draws

Accessible Hanging

Particularly good for those less mobile, this trouser rack is easily accessible when it pulls out.

Fold Out Mirror

Declutter your room by hiding essentials liks mirrors into the wardrobe units themselves.


Wardrobe Lighting

Lighting really makes a piece and can make living with it so much easier. Strip lights that come on when you open the door, and go off when you close it again, provide instant light so you can see what you’re looking for.

Spot lights can add atmosphere to a room on the outside of the wardrobe or provide functional lighting inside while uplights are a great design feature to add finesse to your wardrobe design.

And finally, handles. The finishing touch to any piece of furniture. Handles are probably the smallest visible part of your wardrobe design but arguably the most important. They set-off the piece, provide distinction and define style.

We have a wide range of handle choices but we can also design ‘handleless’ furniture with opening grips built into the panels themselves. An equally stylish choice.
