L-shaped wardrobes also known as a corner wardrobe can be the ideal solution for that small bedroom corner or other room. The sliding doors on our L-shaped corner wardrobes mean that the doors don't get in the way of each other as they would with conventional doors.
Our made-to-measure sliding wardrobe doors are perfect for maximising your wardrobe space, especially if you want to install them into a corner of a room. Below are some guidelines to help you.
Note: We have assumed that the angle of the L-shaped wardrobes is 90 degrees but the angle can be any angle.
We offer two types of frames on our sliding wardrobe doors (steel and aluminium) and depending upon which option you choose the installation method will differ slightly.
To create a corner wardrobe using our steel frame option you will need to create a pillar at the intersection where the two doors will meet. This can be constructed using a strike plate an end panel fixed together with corner blocks to create an L-shaped structure that is then secured to the floor and ceiling, again using corner blocks or appropriate fixings. The minor problem with this it that it will limit access to the corner of the wardrobe i.e. you may have to retrieve items by reaching into the wardrobe. Therefore we would only recommend using this method where costs are an issue and the wardrobe is not going to be in daily use, e.g. in a spare room.
Using our aluminium frame option for corner wardrobes offers a smarter solution as it provides a very slick finish and creates the most usable, accessible space. To create a corner wardrobe using the aluminium frame set you will need to mitre the bottom and top track to the angle you require so when they are fastened to the floor and ceiling they create an L-shape. The top and bottom track are supplied oversized so you will be able to cut these to the correct angle. The corner doors will then slide together and when opened they will offer the greatest amount of access to the corner of the wardrobe.
