Wardrobe Door Trends for 2018

Storage is essential for any bedroom - keeping clothes and shoes tucked away will keep your room looking clean and tidy. Built in robes have quickly become a must have for any home, especially if space doesn’t allow for a walk-in robe. But more than storage, wardrobe doors can be designed to reflect the style of the room and its inhabitant. Whether it’s sleek and modern, or rustic and shabby-chic, here are the top wardrobe door trends for this year.

Handleless Doors

Using routed rebated handles gives your doors a flush look – they’ll blend in with the other walls in your room and create a seamless look. Timber finishes lend themselves well to a mid-century modern home, which has seen a huge resurgence recently, while white doors are perfect for the minimalist Scandinavian bedroom. It also means there are no handles sticking out for little heads to bump into in the middle of the night, or for your favourite cardigan to snag on – Stylish and safe!

Mullions

Using doors with mullion detail or a shaker style is a great way to add character to your room. The different panel work in these doors create an impression of grandeur, and wouldn’t look out of place in a French provincial cottage or an English mansion. Tongue and Groove paneling is another way you can add a period look to your wardrobe doors. You can customise your own panel width and groove depth to suit any era of your choice! Traditionally, this style works best with thinner doors that swing open, but they could also work well as bi-fold or sliding doors.

Deep Colours

Gone are the days where everything has to be painted white in order to look modern. One of the biggest wardrobe door trends of the season is deep, bold colours. Dark Blue - like the sea on a stormy day – is having a serious moment. If you’re not brave enough to paint your whole room in this vibrant shade, but still want to add a splash of colour to your home, then this is a great colour choice for your wardrobe doors. Pair it with blush pink accents, and your room will quickly feel more luxurious. Black is the new white in joinery for the latest modern trend.

Mirrors

Mirrored doors will always be in style, period. It just makes sense – your wardrobe has your clothes in it, so why shouldn’t you see exactly how your outfit has come together? The trick is to choose the right mirror for your wardrobe. This could be a floor to ceiling mirror, or embedded into the paneling of your doors. Either way, this is a great way to make your room appear lighter, while staying on trend.

Keeping your room up-to-date is easy if you follow these wardrobe door trends. Whether you add faux paneling or a coat of paint, or update your doors completely, these styles are sure to be popular for years to come.
