But before buying, we are often tormented by questions: what option to choose this furniture so that it is as useful and harmonious as possible in the interior?
It is these questions that we will try to answer in this article, which will be an excellent adviser when choosing this furniture for your home.
When to install a sliding wardrobe and how to care for it.
So, where to start, I order a sliding wardrobe – from measuring a room and studying its features, or from calculating the number of things that need to be put in a closet?
Still, it’s worth starting with a study of the room, an analysis of its size and planning features. It is good to think over in what place the installation of a sliding wardrobe will be the most convenient and practical. Based on the size of the room, you need to think through the dimensions of this furniture and its design. It can be a corner option or built-in.
Initially, you need to think about the dimensions of the room, and then you can also think about things that need to be folded.
Many people have a question regarding the installation of a built-in closet: should it be installed before repair or after it?
The answer is quite simple – after. Indeed, in order for all measurements to be as accurate as possible, ready-made walls, floor and ceiling are needed. Then embedding the cabinet will be as correct as possible.
There are exceptions, for example, if you need to deepen the rails for the rollers from the sliding doors into the floor, this is done in order to remove the sills. Then in this case, this operation is done before repair.
An equally important issue, which should be given due attention, is the internal structure of this furniture. It is here that you should already analyze your wardrobe in order to order the right number of hangers, shelves and drawers. It is also worth considering the height of the hangers so that you can hang long clothes: dresses, coats, raincoats, etc.
Also, do not forget that in order for the furniture to serve as long as possible, it needs to be “courted”.
Sliding wardrobe – unpretentious furniture, and, as a rule, does not require special service. In order for the mechanisms to serve longer and not to produce a nasty creak, they should be wiped off from dust (especially below), and the wheels can be lubricated with special oil.
When choosing roller systems, you should pay attention to their quality. Unfortunately, many firms may, under the guise of “saving,” offer completely poor-quality fittings. But, as you know from the saying “avaricious pays twice”, saving once, you will have to pay again soon, as they will fail.
It is worth trusting only the well-known and reputable furniture manufacturers who offer the wardrobe.
The appearance of furniture is always on a par with its practicality and usefulness, therefore, this parameter should also be given due attention.
As you know, the basis of this furniture are sliding doors, and they are the main object of decor in sliding wardrobes. There are many options for decorating, and this is a huge plus. This will allow you to easily and simply decorate the interior of the room, create a special atmosphere, and even make the interior truly exclusive.
