Sliding Door Wardrobes-Use and Decorative Appeal

When your room is compact and you crave to have more space for your clothes because you have absolutely no space in your closet, you should consider a sliding door wardrobe. This is very simple and an adaptable option to make your room look larger. The designer wardrobe needs to be such that it should be aesthetically beautiful and should be spacious too.

Mirror Sliding Doors:

Mirror sliding doors are my favorite option. They are very calm and enhance your mood. They make the bedroom brighter and bigger. While the flip side is that you will end up constantly cleaning the small snub marks and sticky finger marks on the door. But, there can be nothing as gratifying as polishing the mirror wardrobe door and brightening up the bedroom.

There are different mirror doorways found in distinct forms. Frosted mirror is excellent and the bronze mirror offers an illusion of a nice tan. Combine wardrobe with colored glass, like cool blues, fresh green, exciting reds, implies that the wardrobe design and style choices can be experimental. You can let your imagination and creativity go wild.

Wood effects give an ethnic feel, cherry brown mixed with mirror panels look amazing, and also reflect light while they retain depth and warmth.

Right Wood:

The entire look that you wish to create depends a great deal upon the kind of wood that you install in your bedroom. Well, oak has a different feel as compared to lighter timber like maple and walnut. You can have wooden door that looks rustic or you can use completely differently designed door that looks like an external door and not designed for your bedroom.

What type of door would you choose then for your wardrobe to match your home furniture?

If you have glass sliding door then the internal wardrobe is always on display and if the glass is tinted you can still see the things inside. They are the boldest statement in contemporary bedrooms.


These mirror doors have great utility value. You can gauge yourself and at the same time they make your bedroom larger due to the optical illusion.


Creative Wardrobe Design

Let the entry of your closet be a creative piece of art. Frosted or translucent glass generates reflective qualities and gives a refined finish. The door can also be of PVC/Vinyl or made of wood.

You can also choose a door with mural, themes, shapes etc or you can paint a small design to match the curtains and bedroom furniture.

Wood delight:

If you choose wood varieties, it is wise to be away from basic wood door unless it is of a rich and striking material or if you decide to paint it.

Glass Tiles:

Glass accent tiles are used for kitchen backsplashes, as accents on floors, shower walls. They sparkle up the kitchen, add depth and luminescence, which is missing in natural stone or ceramics.

Metal Tiles:

Metal matches with the stainless steel appliances. Small metal wall tiles allow you to create different designs. The most common application of wall tile of metal is the kitchen backsplash. For a stylish, contemporary and polished look you can choose stainless steel in different finishes ranging from brushed to satin.

Hardwood Flooring:

We all just love hardwood flooring, but most of the interior decorators and contractors say that there is no place for it in a moist bathroom. So, what is the alternative, faux them on porcelain tiles.

Picture frame:

For a finished look in the kitchen or bath removing an existing window wood casing and replacing with a tile looks real. This is picture framing. A natural ceramic border or a natural stone give depth and a realistic look. You can incorporate it with the other tiles in the room.

How to Decorate in Front of Your Couch

living room idea

My home has always had a coffee table, it has been the place we all jam together, chat and talk about music, books and of course finance for the month. Living room furniture generally has a couch and teapoy and occupies most of the space. When you sit on the couch you would want to keep so many things like magazines, drinks, pen, may be a diary or book. There are so many options to be kept in front of the sofa that serves as a storage space and as a decorative piece. These are some options that will help you decorate in front of your couch and make your home interior useful and stylish.

Coffee table:

This is the first choice for most of us. They are available in all sorts of shapes, sizes, height in metal, glass, natural wood finishes. A coffee table needs to be in proportion to the size of the room and the couch in front of which you want to keep it. You cannot cramp a large, heavy table in a small room.

Pair of tiny tables:

Two tiny tables, can be placed side by side, this will give a formal look as opposed to the modern coffee table. Surely, a matched pair looks good, but mismatched set of tables can be used of the same height with matching tops. A pair of antique tables will look perfectly elegant.

You can also place a cottage style, rustic wooden bench, or an old antique dining table.
