The Japanese may actually be the first people to use what we refer to today as sliding closet doors. These doors essentially follow the commonly accepted definition of a door that moves sideways or in an up and down motion. They still serve the same purpose as they did then, to manage space, provide ease of use and highlight or disguise internal or external features of a structure.
Further your gate should be designed in a way that it must not be easily accessible by intruders, especially dangerous ones like burglars and thieves. You need to achieve a fine balance of artistic appeal and robust security, as both these factors are of great significance in the long run. Besides, doors are not something that you can remodel or change very frequently, as the whole process is very time consuming and expensive. So it is very necessary that you take your decision and make choices carefully, without any haste or hurry.
Another way is to stain the cabinet. Staining the cabinet will add color to the cabinet which normally has a natural color. It will also make the wood glow more and even prevent early damages for the wood pieces. Another style which is almost similar to staining is painting. There are a lot of colors of paint available in the hardware. You can even mix your own color to achieve the right hue or darkness that you prefer. The paint color can make the cabinets look smooth or glossy, depending on type of paint used. The only disadvantage of painting the cabinets is that on later time, cracks will appear in areas like the joints. Cracks are due to the frequent shrinking and expanding of the solid wood during the change of weather conditions.
