An HTH wardrobe with sliding doors not only offers ample storage but also serves as a versatile solution fitting for any room in your home. To showcase the myriad of options available, we've curated a guide brimming with material choices and inspiration to seamlessly weave sliding doors into your interior decor.
Cabinets with sliding doors can be used in all rooms
Sliding doors offer a versatile storage solution, apt for various spaces. Whether it's closets or walk-in wardrobes in the bedroom, storage in the bathroom, organization in the children's room, cabinetry in the office, or concealment in a utility room – sliding doors fit the bill.
With sliding doors, the design possibilities are as vast as your imagination, providing an effortless means to conceal clutter and uphold a tidy and cohesive interior aesthetic.
Make use of every corner of the room
Thanks to their side-sliding mechanism, sliding doors don't intrude into the room, making them ideal for maximizing storage in confined spaces. Tailored to your specific needs, a wardrobe with sliding doors efficiently utilizes every inch available.
Whether dealing with slanted or unconventional walls, our custom-designed wardrobes and interiors are crafted to seamlessly integrate with the unique contours of your home.

The profile of the sliding door
You can choose between four different profiles for your sliding doors:
Experience an upscale frameless system with "Plain". It glides seamlessly on robust wheels equipped with ball bearings, and its top boasts rubber-coated dual wheels with ball bearings. Uniquely, the floor wheel is ingeniously embedded within the door, rendering it "invisible" from both sides—making it an ideal choice for walk-in configurations. Additionally, they come fitted with anti-derailment protection for enhanced safety and durability.
Featuring a chic 20 mm aluminium frame system, this design glides effortlessly across the floor on sturdy ball-bearing roller wheels, complemented by rubber-coated rollers at the ceiling. It's a blend of style and efficient function.
Presenting a premium 20 mm aluminium frame system, equipped with a position stop (magnet) and a soft-close feature. The sliding door operates on robust ball-bearings and rubber-coated dual wheels, guaranteeing a stable and fluid movement every time. It's a marriage of elegance and efficiency.
Showcasing a 100 mm wide Decor frame system, it operates seamlessly on robust ball-bearing wheels. Ingeniously, the floor wheels are tucked away within the door frame, ensuring a sleek appearance. Furthermore, it comes equipped with anti-derailment protection for added safety and longevity.
Sliding door sash bars
Enhance the sliding door of your HTH custom wardrobe by incorporating sash bars, enabling a design tailored to your tastes and requirements. Sash bars come in an array of finishes: silver, white, brushed silver, and matte black. Whether you're looking to coordinate or contrast, you can perfectly align or creatively mix and match the profile on your sliding door.
5 steps to the perfect design
When crafting your wardrobe with sliding doors, follow these 5 steps to ensure an impeccable outcome:
1. Profile: The profile pertains to the frame surrounding the door panel. You have the freedom to select from four distinct profiles.
2. Panel: The panel refers to the primary material constituting the sliding door. Deliberate on your preferred colors and materials to find the perfect fit.
3. Body: The cabinet body encompasses the sides and top of the sliding door wardrobe. As the designer, you can handpick from our diverse range of options.
4. Interior: This pertains to the shelves and the inner walls of the wardrobe. You hold the reins on whether the interior and body should sport a uniform look or flaunt contrasting colors.
5. Design: The sliding door wardrobe's design should prioritize functionality. Reflect on its intended use and align it with your personal tastes and requirements.
How to measure for sliding door cabinets
Embarking on a DIY journey starts with accurate measurements for your sliding door cabinet. To facilitate this process, we've curated a guide for effortless measurement taking.
Width: To cater to possible uneven walls, measure the width at both the floor (E) and the ceiling (D). The narrower of the two measurements will dictate the door's width.
Height: Assess the height from the floor to the ceiling at several intervals (ideally every meter) – the left side (A), the center (B), and the right side (C). The smallest measurement from these will determine the door's height.
Depth: A standard depth of 68 cm is recommended, ensuring sufficient room for the tracks and the smooth operation of the sliding doors.
