Sliding doors are becoming the most popular choice for Perth area homes. There are numerous benefits to sliding doors: some well-known and some lesser-known.
One of the main benefits of sliding doors is that they free up space because they don’t swing. You don’t have any clearance area with a sliding door. A standard sliding door has a movable pane or door and an unmovable pane or window. The movable door slides alongside the window, creating the passageway. A pocket sliding door slides into a space in the wall instead of alongside a window.
Sliding doors are easy to open, close and maintain. As long as the track is kept clean and the door is used enough, a sliding door will open and close without problems for as long as you are probably going to own your home.
Another advantage: a sliding door increases the natural light coming into your home. Natural light has been scientifically proven to provide more energy and enhance mood. It can also contribute to better sleep by restoring your circadian rhythms.
A traditional door only lets the the view in when you open it. Sliding doors provide a great view of your surroundings. If you live among beautiful surroundings, a sliding door lets you enjoy them fully.
Sliding doors save a lot of energy. They let light in when it’s cold to help heat your home. In the summer, they open wide to save air conditioning time. In addition, when they are closed tight, they are very energy efficient, with no cracks for air to blow into.
