Can sliding wardrobe doors be cut to size?

Sliding wardrobe doors are a popular choice for maximizing space and adding a touch of elegance to any room. However, one common concern among homeowners is whether these doors can be customized to fit specific dimensions. The good news is that yes, our sliding wardrobe doors can indeed be cut to size, provided it’s done correctly.

It’s all about symmetry

One of the key considerations when cutting sliding wardrobe doors is maintaining symmetry. To ensure that the doors look proportional, equal amounts should be cut from both the top and bottom panels. This is crucial for achieving a balanced appearance when the doors are installed.

The process of cutting sliding wardrobe doors to size is relatively straightforward. A hacksaw is typically used to make the cuts, and while precision is important, it’s worth noting that the cut edge doesn’t need to be perfect. This is because the aluminum frame of the doors will conceal any imperfections along the edges.

It’s important to emphasize that we only recommend cutting our doors to reduce the height. Not the width. There’re limitations to how much they can be adjusted. Cutting too much off the width may compromise their structural integrity and functionality. It is important to only trim as much as necessary to achieve the desired result.
