Slide to tha left...slide to tha right

While I was looking at doors I figured we should keep the party going and check out some great sliding doors for the interior of your home. These aren't the sliding doors your use to, you know the ones that constantly get off track and you wind up just getting frustrated and leaning the door against the door frame rather than closing it properly! Some of these doors have exposed hardware mounted above them which plays to the industrial look, and those doors happen to be my favorite, but even with the hardware hidden these doors are WAY above average. Bartels Designer Doors and Albed are two options for sliding contemporary door companies but once again there are plenty of choices out there. When you're looking for a door keep in mind the space that the door is going to encompass...Will these be closet doors? or Will these doors open up to my bedroom or office? Contemporary means simple so don't get carried away with sliding doors everywhere you turn







When you're looking for a door keep in mind the space that the door is going to encompass...Will these be closet doors? or Will these doors open up to my office or to my outdoors?

Contemporary means simple so don't get carried away with sliding doors everywhere you turn remember to keep this as a special feature in your home. However if your space allows you to use more than one set of sliding doors keep your furniture and accessories to a minimum because you DO NOT want the design to become to busy. By the way there are plenty of gorgeous door options that don't slide you just have to make sure your design elements work together and not against one another.

folding sliding doors
I want to make sure I understand where exactly you want to mount the shutters. Do you want them mounted on to the sliding doors themselves or so that they overlap the entire opening of sliding doors?
