Sliding Doors as an Alternative Option

Homeowners in the process of renovating their bathrooms have discovered the value of a sliding bathroom door over the traditional hinge door. A sliding door is far easier to navigate, especially for people who have physical disabilities or who are getting older, than doors that open outwardly into the hallway or bedroom, taking up extra space. In terms of style, a sliding bathroom door is a unique and attractive choice. A pocket door that slides into an adjacent wall, for instance, provides easy accessibility, security and privacy.

Unlike pocket doors from bygone generations, the Sliding Door Company has proprietary technology which provides assurance that the sliding bathroom door will not come off the track. Decades ago, pocket doors fell out of popularity and manufacturers went bankrupt. Part of the reason they fell out of favor was their impracticality: Doors would fall of the tracks while inside the adjacent wall, and were hard to restore. Having a door halfway open and impossible to move is not efficient or functional. Fortunately, modern pocket doors do not suffer from this dilemma.


Renovators may want to look into barn style sliding doors for the bathroom, as well. At the Sliding Door Company, there are numerous materials and styles from which to choose, ranging from wood or metal framed wood or metal doors to a variety of other options. Doors can be resized and custom-made in order to meet both the functional and aesthetic needs of any household.
