Replacement Wardrobe Doors: A guide to modernising your bedroom on a budget

Is your bedroom looking a bit worse for wear, but you don’t have the budget for a complete makeover? Then you’re in the right place.

Like most people in the midst of the cost-of-living crisis, a bedroom flip is probably not high on the list of priorities. But, you don’t have to forget your dreams of a modern bedroom completely because we have got a budget and DIY-friendly solution for you: replacement wardrobe doors!

Read on for our guide to modernising your bedroom on a budget, with replacement wardrobe doors.

Step one: Get rid of your old and outdated built-in wardrobe doors

Built-in wardrobes take up a large amount of wall space in bedrooms, which can often make them a bit of a feature in the room. Sure, the door colour you chose for your built-in wardrobes was trendy at the time, we believe you! But, perhaps it’s not quite as fashionable or in line with your style as it used to be. You’ve updated the furniture or wallpaper in the rest of the room over time, and maybe your wardrobes now clash with your current décor. 

If this is the case, then replacing your wardrobe doors is a cheap and easy solution and could make all the difference to the overall feel of your bedroom.

So, start by taking off your old doors, and measuring them, including where the hinges and handles go.  We have a helpful guide on how to measure wardrobe doors here.

Step two: Decide on your dream wardrobe door style

Handleless, wooden, panelled, matt… there are so many possibilities! So, be sure to carefully consider the style you want to achieve before you start shopping for your new doors. To guide you, we have outlined some pointers below that will help you find the exact doors you want to go for:
