Sliding doors are becoming increasingly popular with consumers and although they are commonly perceived as purely bedroom furniture, they are actually incredibly versatile and can be easily utilised throughout the home for a variety of applications.

Efficient storage is a crucial factor in ensuring you get the most out of the available space in your home and sliding doors can be a big help in achieving this – they also look pretty good too!

Ranges such as the Volante sliding door system – which is manufactured right here in the UK by ECF - can offer the ultimate in both style and practicality and with flexible size and design options available, you can create doors which are unique to your own personal style and fit perfectly within the existing décor of your home.

In the bedroom, a sliding wardrobe allows you to optimise your space, as there is no requirement for the additional room needed to open a wardrobe door, which is a common complaint for many homeowners.

By taking advantage of internal storage systems such as our Volantestor which is available in two configurations, you can transform the internal wardrobe space into a practical and efficient space for keeping your clothes and shoes. You can also add a pull out mirror, or even select a mirrored finish for the doors themselves – the possibilities for customisation are huge!

Sliding doors can also be used in the living room, especially to house an entertainment system or any books and DVDs, which can be hidden away very simply when required.

A home office is another environment where the sliding door can be of benefit. It is often difficult when working from home to separate your professional and personal space – Volante takes away this problem, as you can hide your office files and computer away at the end of the day by closing the doors.


Perfect for a home office, Volante can be ordered with bespoke panel configurations for a unique look. Shown here is the Bespoke Vertical panel configuration with Cashmere, Driftwood and Stone Grey finishes

Your sliding doors can be a design feature in their own right, creating a stunning focal point for the room which can enhance the existing design. Available in a number of panel configurations and with the additional option of bespoke horizontal and vertical configurations, Volante can be tailored to your exact requirements.  You can also choose from a myriad of finish options which can be mixed and matched as you please to create a contemporary aesthetic.
