In case the storage space for clothes is part of the room, it is preferable to use a simple partition. But if the dressing room occupies a separate room, then in its opening it is worthwhile to install a reliable door system. Then the numerous racks and hangers with costumes will not by their appearance disturb the interior of the room, but by closing the doors from the inside, you can do your own changing clothes without prying eyes.


The choice of door design for the dressing room depends not only on the preferences of the family, but also on the area of ​​the room and the functionality of the system itself. So what are the options to mount?

Sliding doors

Sliding or sliding doors are similar to those used in most wardrobes. The door leaf moves left-right along the guides with the help of rollers. This design allows you to save space, so well suited for a small area.

There are sliding doors and other advantages:

  • Safety of use - it is impossible to pinch a finger in the doorway, this is especially important if there are small children in the house. They close smoothly, sash when closing can not cause injury.
  • Thanks to the standard parts supplied in the kit, mounting such systems is relatively simple, even without experience.
  • Sliding compartment doors have a huge number of sizes and options.
  • If any part fails, it is replaced with a new one without any problems.

Among the shortcomings of sliding doors for a dressing room can be noted:

  • the fragility of the complex mechanism - the guides are made of aluminum, which bends easily;
  • high cost of such systems;
  • the presence of cracks, that is, not one hundred percent insulation of the room;
  • emitted noise when opening the valves.

Retractable door systems can move not only along a straight guide, but also along a curved one. Radial doors are usually installed in spacious rooms, as their design will not save a lot of usable space. But some decide to use them in small apartments, if it is required that the curved lines of the partition into the dressing room fit into the similar design of the room.

The mechanism of radial doors consists of an arc guide with varying degrees of curvature and doors that repeat its shape. The flaps can be one or two. To make the door leafs smoothly move along a curve, special rollers are used, which move not only along, but also rotate around their vertical axis. Such a mechanism is quite complicated, so its installation and repair requires a certain professionalism, and the price of radial doors is high. But as a result, an impressive dressing room design is created.

Louvre or slatted doors can have different designs: sliding, hinged or folding. Their canvases consist of a multitude of thin rails fixed at an angle to the surface. As a result, holes are created through which air penetrates. Therefore, it is a practical option for a room where clothes are stored. Reiki can be made of wood, metal or plastic. As in the window blinds, in these doors can be provided for the adjustment of the width of the holes.

The advantages of slatted doors are as follows:

  • providing effective ventilation in the dressing room;
  • the influx of heat into it from the outside;
  • ease of carrying and installation compared to solid door leaves;
  • original and spectacular appearance.

Among the disadvantages of louvered systems, one can only note the lack of sound insulation, which is not essential for a dressing room.

Folding doors

Folding doors are used for the dressing room, when the owners want to keep the expensive laminate or parquet in the ideal form, the sash of such structures do not touch the flooring. Rail mechanism with guides and rollers mounted on the ceiling or upper horizontal overlap.In place of the folds of the folds, the usual door hinges are installed.

Folding doors with an accordion have several lamellas - folding narrow doors, their number for a doorway 1.5-2 m wide can reach 10.

The design of the book has a total of 2 folding sections, that is, canvases 4. This is usually sufficient for an opening 1.5–1.7 m wide.

Advantages of folding systems for a dressing room in an elegant appearance, ease of use, no rubbing the floor. But there are drawbacks - it is the loosening of the door fixation after some time of active use, a greater capture of the working area than that of the sliding doors.

Swing doors

Swing doors are a traditional version of interior parts, which has been used for many centuries in a row. They are good for a dressing room because they give an excellent overview of the internal space when opening. Such models, if properly installed, will last for many years, are not as susceptible to failure as mechanisms on rollers. And the installation of such doors will cost much cheaper. The disadvantage is obvious - they require more free space. Many owners, striving for the original design of the apartment, do not like their triviality.

There are many models of hinged doors for a dressing room, it is necessary to choose depending on the free space, the interior and the width of the doorway. For a narrow, you can set simple single-door, for a wider more than 1.5 m - double-wing. Preferably, they open outward, so there will be more free space in the dressing room. For swing, as for folding models, there is a book option, which is first opened and then folded into 2 halves. Such a solution will save some free space in the room, which is adjacent to the dressing room.

Any model of door systems for the wardrobe room can be made of a variety of materials. There are wooden, plastic, metal, glass doors and combined options. Each has its pros and cons: metal products are durable, but heavy, plastic is light, but they do not have a representative appearance, glass looks spectacular, but fragile. Although modern models of transparent doors are made of tempered mineral or organic glass, which is practically not subject to mechanical damage.

In addition to the door to isolate the room wardrobe you can install curtains. The simplest option is fabric webs suspended from a cornice. They are easy to install, if necessary, quickly erased, will have an elegant and light look. Their cost is lower than that of any kind of doors.

A more complicated option is roller blinds. The shaft on which the roll is wound is at the top - right under the ceiling or horizontal overlap. In the twisted state such curtains can be placed in a closed box. They go down with the help of a chain, and in order not to hang tight, a special weighting band is provided at the bottom.

How to make an entrance

The layout of the entrance to the dressing room should be combined with the surrounding space. The color scheme of the door is selected on the adjacent walls. Forms of partitions also should not look superfluous in the present interior. So, if the room is dominated by right angles and smooth lines, then enter the curved doors into it is not worth it. But many designers create projects where the radial door systems are directed with the convex side, not outward, but inside the dressing room.

Swing doors on the outside can be decorated with a door frame that matches the material and color. Sliding or folding systems can be supplemented with original lighting. For example, built-in lights on a false ceiling in front of radial doors to the dressing room look very impressive.

If the doors are hinged, the installation process is slightly easier. It is important to secure the door leaf on the hinges, usually two of them - in the upper and lower parts. To make the doors easily open and not to be skewed, you need to install the hinges strictly according to the level. The slightest bias will cause major problems during operation, and after some time, under the action of their weight, such partitions may generally have a very curved bevel and as a result do not turn around their axis.
