Creative Sliding Doors

Our team here at FormfunctionNT thrive on the one off challenge.
Unique design brings its own rewards and we have had many opportunities to bring clients dreams to life with our creative sliding doors.

Bring your design to life

From multiple panel “Mondrian” inspired creations & one off printing projects to unique industrial designs, we pride ourselves on being able to create truly original products inline with our premium client’s desires.

Creative Finishes

We have taken the approach that any flat panel or material may be fabricated into a one off design and that pretty much anything goes.
Just some of the materials used to date include matchstick bamboo blinds, Louvre slats, wallpaper, custom powdercoated mini-orb, powder coated mesh, timber floorboards, left over decking timber, Lego inserts, even a table runner from Spotlight has been integrated into a door design.  Currently trending are full sized photographic prints onto glass or aluminium panels.

    • Newer timbers can be stained to match existing furniture or floors.

  • Upcycling your Timber Floating Floorboards into your Wardrobe Door Design

    Sliding Wardrobe Doors and your floorboards are two of the largest permanent fixtures in your bedroom.Our experience shows that Wardrobe Doors are an untapped component of a bedroom makeover, that few people pay a lot of attention to.  However, with planning your sliding doors can work together with your floors to enhance your rooms foundation aesthetics. 

    The Perfect Room aesthetic

    Once you have the foundation aesthetics’ all you need to do is select pieces that complement each other.  Matching curtains to rugs and combining textures with your bedding can all work together with your Wardrobe Doors to enhance the room’s design.
    Combining your floating timber floor boards in your Wardrobe Door design can create a” subtle impact”, or  “hero the sliding doors" in your rooms design. 

    “A Subtle Impact”

    This little touch of combining two large permanent fixtures together can go unnoticed once the room is dressed with your furniture, artwork and soft furnishings.   The end result will reflect the co-ordinated materials in a highly polished design.

    Or you can “hero the Sliding Doors” in your Wardrobe Sliding Door design.

    The photo showing the orange panels & bamboo floating timber floor boards demonstrates how you can hero your Wardrobe Doors.The brief from our rather adventurous client was to keep the use of materials on the sliding doors in line with the rest of this newly renovated room. The black triple track aluminium profiles matched the black louvre windows on an adjacent wall and using the left-over bamboo flooring as vertical panels was a no-brainer.We custom sprayed MDF panels to match the paint on the walls and inserted a central dress mirror for functionality.The raked ceiling was overcome with a bamboo bulkhead to bring our head track to level.The end result is both colourful and fun, apt descriptions of one of our favoured clients.

We’ve shipped these sliding wardrobe doors for a Melbourne terrace house and also for a linen cupboard in an architecturally designed Sydney home. Neither of these cities can be described as tropical, however the integral airflow of this design along with the aesthetics really appealed to our discerning interstate clients.This door can be customised to work with all interior design concepts.  Call Carl to discuss your renovation or new build.
