Increasingly over the past few years, sliding interior doors have become very popular for use throughout the house, home and office. Commonplace, in fact. Whether as doors between rooms instead of traditional swinging doors, as room dividers in an office space, or as sliding wardrobe doors in the bedroom, people are now seeing both the design benefits and practical benefits - from an interior design perspective and a space saving perspective - of using sliding doors in both their workplace and their home.
We often find people are stunned by the vast range of interior sliding door options available to them. Mirrored doors, glass doors, lacquered finish, japanese style, bi folding doors, room dividers - the list goes on. Nowadays, with sliding doors being used throughout the home more and more as wardrobe doors, bedroom doors and kitchen doors, people are demanding more quality and selection when making their interior design choices.
Rustic décor can play out as a new world ranch house comfort, popular across Canada, but the other intriguing direction is old world class with enduring appeal. Rustic kitchens that take a mix-and-match approach to old and new world styles can look great and feel sturdy and enduring in a reassuring way. If you want to take that theme throughout the home wood furnishing can cover part of the distance, but classic exterior wood doors and window frames complete the look. These traditional doors lend a sense of stepping back to a simpler time when you walk through the front door, but open to reveal a contemporary castle inside. It's a great way to strike the balance between old and new that makes the mix-and-match rustic look so popular. A range of stains and varnishes can look great with stucco or stone exteriors too.
You can also choose the hardware - door knobs, locking mechanisms, hinges - and finishes. Everything is under your control so you know you'll get just what you asked for. If you do have questions about the door's style or if any particular wood species is best for an Arts and Crafts door, don't hesitate to ask the manufacturer. They've worked with doors and styles for years and years and will be able to give you excellent insight and advice about their work and what you might like to see.
