They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but when one is talking of wardrobes and the different shutter varieties available in the market, you can be forgiven for wanting to know exactly how the book… err, the wardrobe is covered. Your wardrobe may be great on the inside and may house all your needs perfectly, but if it has a shabby looking shutter it will make your room look dull for sure. Before you decide on what to buy, read through this list of the range of wardrobe shutter options available at HomeLane and find the right shutter style for your perfect wardrobe.

At HomeLane, we do two broad types of wardrobes – the Hinged and the Sliding wardrobe. The door designs/options for these vary accordingly.

These are the broad categories. Now, let us look at each of them in detail:

Shutters for Hinged Wardrobes

With their French-style doors and long history, hinged wardrobes are a perennial favourite. Depending on need, these wardrobes can be a double door, three-door or four-door. You need a slightly spacious room to accommodate a hinged wardrobe so that the shutters can open fully without obstructing traffic, but their ease of use and accessibility more than make up for it. At HomeLane, we offer the following shutter options for hinged wardrobes:

4 Side Edge Band Shutter

The 4 Side Edge Band or 4 SEB shutter is made of an MDF or Ply-board and comes in acrylic, laminate, and UV finish. The edges are banded to make the board waterproof, and the shutter panels are flat i.e. they have no design. You can choose finishes depending on your need and go for either a solid colour or a wooden look.

Membrane Finish Shutter

Membrane finish shutters can be flat, or with routed or grooved designs. While the grooves give the wardrobe a traditional look with cathedral arches and deep indentations, routing is a semi-traditional design with straight lines. There is no need for edge banding on these shutters as the membrane material is itself pulled over the edge of the boards for sealing the raw wood edge.

Grooved and routed designs make your wardrobe look even better.

Glass Shutters

If you like the chrome-and-glass design, you can also opt for glass shutters with aluminium frames. You can choose between frosted or lacquered glass options for this.

Shutters for Sliding Wardrobes

Sliding wardrobes are all the rage right now. They are tailor-made for small homes and since the door panels slide over each other when open, you do not need any extra space near the wardrobe to accommodate open doors either. Ergo, no worries about knocking over things in a hurry! The shutter options available are:

4 Side Edge Banding or Membrane Finish Flat Shutters

Regular sliding wardrobes come with only flat shutters that can either be made of 4 SEB or membrane finish wood. The sliding wardrobe is a modern design and has wide shutter panels which cannot be routed or grooved easily. But you can always play around with colours, patterns and finishes to create a customised look.

Mirrored Shutters with Aluminium Frame

Now, these can be slightly hard to pull off, but if you like the way your room reflects on the mirrored panels and the futuristic edge it lends your décor, then you can always opt for mirrored shutters. It will save you the need for a dresser for sure.

Armadio Floor-to-Ceiling Shutter Wardrobes

At HomeLane, we have a distinctive range of sliding wardrobes called the Armadio. This wardrobe has floor-to-ceiling shutters that can extend up to a height of 9.5 feet. Normal wardrobes have shutters about 7 feet or so, with separate shutters for the loft area. But with the Armadio you get a seamless and trendy design with fully customisable interiors and flexible fittings based on the ‘System 32’ design module followed by the top brands in the world. The shutter options available for the Armadio are:
