Top Five Sliding Door Designs and Where to Use Them

With a wonderful and exciting array of space-saving solutions, from wall partitions to room dividers, and sliding doors, The Sliding Door Company offers unique designs and quality craftsmanship to all we build. Each of our stylish door designs creates interest, value and increased usability to any home. Most are enticed by our wide variety of options but left stumped on which sliding door design to use and where. It all depends on the room, and the intent behind each space you wish to partition. Every room in the house serves its own unique purpose. From kitchens to laundry rooms, living rooms to bathrooms, no one room is the same. So why should it have the same door? Well, it shouldn’t. Here are the top five cutting edge sliding door designs on the market today, and how and where to use them.

Sliding Glass Mirror Doors

Sliding glass mirror doors are an aesthetically pleasing, updated approach to the ordinary closet door. Doubling its function as a door and a full-length mirror, you instantly save space, increase usability and update your room. Mirrors are, needless to say, amazing at reflecting light- meaning if you have a dark room, with perhaps a small window or simply it’s situated in an inherently dark side of the house, this is a fantastic solution. This lack of natural and/or available light can be easily mitigated by installing sliding glass mirrored closet doors. This design undoubtedly will save you money on energy costs and usage by optimizing natural light. Our sliding closet doors never dislodge from their track and are exceptionally easy to close and open with our 3S Smart Shut System. Our wheel-to-track locking mechanism is not only safe, but it also makes opening and closing a total breeze.

Sliding Shoji Doors

These beautiful, oriental-inspired sliding doors are an artistic flourish and design feature you won’t want to miss. Perfect for a traditional Tatami room, craft studio or yoga room. The modern approach we see with stunning traditional Japanese Tatami interior rooms now serve as study areas in temples and as living or sleeping areas in homes. The Tatami room, with its simple furnishings and open atmosphere, successfully introduces the Eastern qualities into any Western home. Not many doors compare to a beautiful shoji design. Typically constructed with paper, our contemporary take on this timeless design are doors made of tempered glass that offers increased durability, style, and a good sound barrier.

Frosted Glass Sliding Doors

Frosted Glass Sliding Doors are a must-have in any home. Out of all the available door options, this one is perhaps the most versatile, often ranging from bathrooms to home offices, and even closets. A great solution for closet doors, as they still allow for some transparency, creating intrigue to any space and offering a beautifully modern look. Home offices make great use of this design as well, with low opacity still allowing for natural light to come through while providing necessary privacy and solitude.

Sliding Glass Barn Doors

This stunning contemporary take on a seemingly rustic western door has everyone excited. Inspired by the homeliness and comfort of the country feel, these Sliding Glass Barn Doors are a wonderful addition to any living room. Mostly used to separate kitchens from living rooms, or one shared space to the next, these barn doors slide along the wall and are one of the best space optimizers offered. Our doors are available either framed or frameless, crafted with 5-10 mm thick tempered glass, and so easy-glide open and close. Moreover, they are available in seven unique glass opacities to choose from. Offering one of the most elegant space-dividing solutions yet, you won’t be dissatisfied with our custom-built barn doors.

 Interior Pocket Doors

Many people today find themselves living in an overly cramped apartment, tiny home or even average-sized home with limited floor space. Especially when downsizing from a larger size home into something a bit smaller- this can be a difficult transition for anyone. Living with limited square footage can make even the most simple features of the home seem overbearing. Creating discomfort and unnecessary stress. Our space-saving interior pocket doors are a great option for smaller spaces that may not have space for a full-swing door. They’re a total must-have for closets, small bedrooms, or connecting two spaces such as between an en-suite and a walk-in closet. With this easy to install and cost-effective solution, you’ll be happy you made the upgrade!

With all of these available artful and creative design options, you can bring your home up to date with simple cost-effective sliding doors.
