10 Sliding interior doors – a practical and stylish alternative for all types of homes

Even though they’re not as common or popular as bi-fold doors or other types of doors, sliding doors have their set of advantages. They are quite common in wardrobes and closets but not so much in the interior. It’s mostly because, unlike in the case of wardrobes, a sliding interior door needs additional space in order to be installed. It takes double the space needed for a regular door. Still, It can be very practical and useful in certain cases.

A sliding interior door could be used for the hallway. Considering that the hallway is usually a transitional space mostly decorated with photos, artwork and storage units, it should feature enough space to accommodate a sliding door. But putting all the concerns related to space aside, sliding interior doors tend to be a bit more stylish and chic than most regular doors. They accommodate simplicity easier and it’s easier to have a minimalist sliding door than minimalist bi-fold doors.
