Aside from the style factor, sliding doors are becoming increasingly popular as they offer a great space-saving solution because they take up less space around them, compared with hinged doors.

In addition, they are often considered to be superior for general soundproofing in offices, study areas, or studios that need to be kept quiet for concentration, or if noise needs to be kept from escaping into the home.

By operating from the side-to-side, you can also create a wider walkway, particularly useful when moving large items from one room to another during a renovation. Sliding wall partitions between rooms give you the flexibility to create two smaller, more intimate spaces, or one large one – ideal for entertaining.

Because Sliding doors are benefitted from being on a track, this allows them to glide open and closed quite easily, and don’t require much strength. They do not make as much noise as a normal door when closed.  They are also space saving – As the doors slide along a parallel track, sliding doors require almost no space to be fully opened.
