Should you choose a standard closet or mirrored wardrobe door? You’d think it would be the easiest decision in the world, but this may come as a surprise – there’s actually a lot to think about when it comes to picking one style over the other.

Before you make a decision, you need to weigh your options. Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of each can help you select the style of door that best meets your needs and sense of style.

Mirrored Sliding Wardrobe Door: Pros and Cons

Mirrored sliding wardrobe doors are a space-efficient solution in small places. A mirrored sliding door will allow full access to your closet without the inconvenience of a door to swing wide open into the room. Mirrors also make the room look larger, so you can pretend your LA bedroom apartment is much larger than it actually is.

If the room is dark, a mirrored sliding door will bounce light around, making the space feel brighter and more cheerful. And if that’s not reason enough, mirrored sliding doors also make it easier to check yourself out before heading out for the evening!

Standard Closet Door: Pros and Cons

Standard closet doors, particularly solid wood doors, are just classically beautiful. Variations in the surface of the wood will add to the aesthetic beauty of the room. Doors like this are flexible in appearance can be painted to match the color of the room or the molding. Standard closet doors can hold nails and hooks for hanging things, and unlike mirrors, they don’t break–which is definitely a bonus if you’re clumsy or have rambunctious children.

Choosing the Best Style for Your Home

Mirrored sliding closet doors and standard swinging doors are so different in appearance that design is an important factor to consider when choosing which door is right for you. Mirrored sliding doors are more modern in appearance, and they fit in homes that are reflect a contemporary aesthetic. Traditional swinging closet doors are…well, traditional. They look better in classically decorated homes and in older properties.

To Sum Up…

Sliding mirrored closet doors work best in small spaces, dark rooms and modern homes where the occupants like to admire their appearance after a good shopping trip. Standard swinging closet doors work best in classically decorated homes and in households where the people need more hooks and nails on which to hang things.
