How to replace your old wardrobe doors

If you’ve had built-in wardrobes in your bedroom, they’ve probably served you well over the years. But, perhaps now they look dated, and could do with a revival ready for the New Year.

Wardrobes are a must in any modern home. But when they become old and tired, what do you do?

There’s no need to just put up with your worn out wardrobe doors, and there’s no need to have them removed and replaced by professionals either.

When it comes to updating your old wardrobe doors, you can simply renovate them yourself - it’s not as hard as you might think!

Here’s how to update and replace your wardrobe doors.

Can you replace the doors on a fitted wardrobe?

When fitted wardrobe doors begin to look a bit tatty, you might automatically think about having a whole new set installed.

You could rip the wardrobe out and throw it away, but the frame might still be in solid condition, and there may be no issue with internal accessories such as hanging rails and drawers.

With more people adopting an eco conscious attitude, you might be reluctant to create more unnecessary waste by ripping out and discarding a perfectly good wardrobe.

The cheapest and easiest option is to simply replace the wardrobe doors. This will refresh your bedroom with little effort and cost.

But how do you replace the doors yourself? It only takes a few easy steps.

  1. Measure the doors
  2. Find the colour you like
  3. Order the doors
  4. Replace the doors

If you’re wondering how to get started with step number one, allow us to explain in our next point.
