Interior sliding doors manufacturers, by and large, have responded over the past several years, with new styles and designs continuing to multiply. Standards of interior sliding doors these days are generally very high and, as long as you use an established sliding door company to supply and/or install your doors, you are sure to be very pleased. For installation, most good supply companies can provide a fitting service. Alternatively, if you have a good practical sense and/or some basic construction knowledge you may wish to install the sliding doors yourself. With the economy being stretched, and people's DIY capabilities improving, many people choose to do-it-themselves these days.
The type of door can also make a world of difference. The basic types are hinged, sliding, folding and revolving types. The hinged type is when the door is hinged on one side allowing it to swing open in only one direction. The improvement on this type is the swinging type. This type is made in such a way that though it is hinged on only one side it can swing in both directions opening inwards and outwards. The sliding type is when the panels are mounted on overhead and floor tracks. These panels can slide over one another in both directions - right and left. These are used in situation of space constraints but their regular use popularity has also increased phenomenally. The folding type is when the two or more panels are joined together by hinges. These hinges allow the panels to fold over each other in whichever direction you want. Revolving type is the one where the panel is attached at the centre with means of an axis and the far ends of the panel can be pushed, which causes the panel to pivot about the axis. This type is not generally used in homes as it takes up too much space but it is quite ubiquitous in commercial establishments.
For the contemporary home the more sophisticated feeling of Shoji sliding exterior wood doors might be right for you. Although these doors stretch back hundreds of years across Japan and Asia, they are relatively new in the west, and can be used to create a very popular and chic east-meets-west vibe for your back yard, patio, or garden. These exterior wood doors are perfect for pool houses, garden sheds, or verandas that you want to turn from an eye-sore into a trendy feature. Additionally it's a natural complement for koi-ponds or relaxing small gardens. As with all exterior wooden doors the range of stains and varnishes you can use lets this work without any color scheme you could want, from a warm and earthy wood tone to a very dark black formal shine. Although this look is currently very popular it's also been around in the west just long enough you don't need to worry about it going out of style any time soon.
Now when you go shopping for designs, you will realize that there is a huge variety available in the market to suit different needs and tastes. You find beautiful traditional style wood doors with carvings and patterns in different designs. Many manufacturers sell front door designs which reflect the bygone eras such as Victorian, Georgian, Tudor, French Country, Tuscany and Colonial. These are more suited to palatial or country-side homes. You can even go for the rustic look and finish or antique looking front door designs.
