    I have a 95 cm width space to install 2 sliding door that measures 69 cm each. Is this possible? and would the over lap gap be too much?

    Well they’ll overlap by 43cm which is more than normal but more importantly when one side is fully open you’ve only got 26cm width for putting clothes in/out.

    That sounds a bit tight IMO.

    That's what I thought as well but just wanted a second opinion. One idea could be to just use one sliding door but with the door been 69cm wide and a space of 95cm that will still only give 26 cm to put clothes in.

    Below is a sample photo (without the fire place) similar to my room. I could stretch the tracks to the wall where the fire place is in the sample photo. This will give me the 138cm width space I need for both doors. Only issue is that am planning on wall mounting a TV there on the wall and the side wardrobe panel will get in the way. One idea is maybe cut side wardrobe panel in 2 to give enough space for the TV to be wall mounted.

    Yes, two options. Make the opening bigger or get smaller doors.

    I suppose there is a third...

    Could you bring the wardrobe track forward in front of the chimney breast and wall mounted TV so that it covers all of that space? You can then have the TV behind the wardrobe doors when not in use or open the doors when watching. Just a thought. Might be worth exploring this as another option
