Once relegated to bedrooms, the versatility and creative use of sliding closet doors have found their way into many uses. Some include beautification of the exterior of homes, interior room dividers, decorative storage areas and even garages. The variety of finishes, colors and configurations of closet sliding doors makes them even more useful when you consider the finishes and materials that are available for nearly every application imaginable.
Most of the time when you seek out a door, you will see many of the same things. Not necessarily that all doors are the same, but rather you will see many of the same styles. While doors even within styles are technically different, they still retain the overall feel of the style. If you want a truly unique door, you may have to think outside of styles and even outside of the box.
The bottom line is knowing the type of home, room, patio or porch you have will enable you to narrow the choices and choose the perfect door system. You‘ll also need to consider the climate where the doors will be installed. This will dictate material selection, how the door is hung and the style suitable for that particular application.
