What is the best structure for Mirrored closets?

In order to be able to find the best structure for Mirrored closets, there are several options to consider. The first major decision to be made concerns the distinction between models with sliding or hinged doors, but the height of the cabinet must also be carefully considered.

Wardrobe manufacturers offer full-height mirrored models, perfect if you have to furnish small spaces and want to make the most of every available centimetre, or wardrobes of standard height. There is also a third way: made-to-measure mirror cabinets, which are ideal if you have to furnish an attic with sloping roofs, for example, or if you have special space requirements. 

Generally speaking, mirrored wardrobes with sliding doors are preferable if the space for the wardrobe is small. Such a solution is very useful, for example, for furnishing guest rooms or narrow corridors.

Mirror wardrobes with hinged doors, on the other hand, are the right choice if you want to have access to the entire contents of the wardrobe. Since the doors take up space when open, you should check that the doors are not in the way before choosing this solution.
