Choosing the best Closet Doors for your Home or Office

Swing…or slide?

Picking the right closet solution is not always obvious. Whether for your home, loft or office, both sliding and swinging closet doors offer multiple benefits.

To help you make your decision, here’s a little bit you should know about each type.

Sliding closet doors

  • Benefits: Sliding closet doors are incredibly modern, fashionable, and come in a wide range of beautifully crafted styles—with a plethora of materials and colours to choose from. Their finishes may include frosted and translucent glass, to mirrored or coloured panels. Sliding closet doors are also great for saving space, if you want to give your room or office a more spacious and open feel. Moreover, when manufactured using patented smooth-glide technology, sliding doors practically float—and never jump the track!
  • Potential drawbacks: Many sliding doors only allow for access to one side of your closet at a time. (Of course, this is not the case here at The Sliding Door Company, but you probably already figured that out!)

Swinging closet doors

  • Benefits: Swinging closet doors traditionally feature a simple hinged swinging door, or double doors. But despite being around for decades, swinging closet doors can also be just as upscale, high quality and stylish for your home or office as the modern sliding closet door. Some are fully lockable; and others allow for increased storage by enabling you to mount hooks, pockets or racks to the back of the door.
  • Potential drawbacks: If you’re already in a tight space, you may not have room for a swinging door that opens outward.
