In this blog we compare frameless sliding wardrobe doors vs framed sliding wardrobe doors.
While frameless doors might appear to be a more stylish alternative, you might be surprised to learn they aren’t the most sought-after door solution.
Why? Well, you have fewer options for door infills AND you’re limited to standard tracks so if depth is an issue, they might not by the best choice.

Which Is More Popular: Framed or Frameless Doors for Wardrobes?
Framed doors on wardrobes are by far the most sought-after option. That’s because you have got more choice when it comes to tracks and infill.
Biggest Differences Between Framed and Frameless Wardrobe Doors
- Tracks: If you opt for framed doors, you can pick either standard or slimline tracks. However, when you opt for frameless doors you are limited to standard tracks, so they’re not going to be the best alternative if depth is an issue.
- Infill options: Infill options are limited with frameless doors, as you can only select a glass infill!
On the other hand, if you want framed wardrobe doors, we have a wide variety of infill options including vinyl wrapped plasterboard, mirror, melamine and Medium-density fibreboard (MDF).
- Manufacturing process: The manufacturing process is slightly different in that frameless doors are glued together as part of the glazing process which means, unlike our standard doors, the infills are not able to be replaced.
When to Choose Frameless Doors
Frameless doors are popular for:
- WIR office where the doors are to appear seamless
When to Choose Framed Doors
- For children’s rooms
- High traffic areas
- When a board finish is required for the door infill
