The five strengths of sliding doors for homes and offices

The five strengths of sliding doors for homes and offices

An increasingly common situation inside homes and offices is that linked to the lack of space, or to the not entirely efficient arrangement of furnishings. Especially in professional environments, every little detail can make the difference, and optimal use of the available environments can therefore lead to greater productivity. For this reason, sliding doors play an increasingly important role in the design of domestic and professional spaces. Here are five ways a sliding door can enhance residential and work environments.

They improve offices and make them truly smart

Imagine a modern working environment: a place where ideas run quickly and efficiency is a necessary requirement for success. In a smart context, saving space allows you to install a new workstation, speed up communications and further increase the effectiveness of your office. In this context, sliding doors allow you to save precious centimeters thanks to the elimination of the traditional movement of the door, be it inwards or outwards. The space immediately next to the door thus does not necessarily have to be left free, and above all the use of the same door no longer creates clutter or hindrance. Sliding doors, in other words, are the ideal solution for the most efficient offices.

They give a touch of color without forgetting elegance

The particular conformation makes the sliding door particularly suitable to be produced in various materials. The more traditional solutions include the presence of retractable panels in wenge, cherry, larch or walnut, with an elegant appearance and suitable for any type of environment.

For the more lively and dynamic environments, however, it is possible to opt for glass panels. The options in this field are particularly numerous: the lacquered and pantographed solutions, ideal for offices and environments intended for contact with the public, are flanked by reflective alternatives, those with engravings or colored ones. In the latter case, Porte Italiane is also able to create sliding doors in Living Coral, the color of the year 2019 for the Pantone institute.

They don't waste time: installation is simple

Installing a sliding door has become a rather simple operation. In the past, on the contrary, the creation of a cavity and the use of four or five cm doors made it difficult to implement the door in thin partition walls, commonly used both in homes and in workplaces. Now, however, the sliding door is housed entirely in a box made up of parallel sheets of steel sheet. The different size of the bins allows installation in all types of environments, and also allows the use of the most varied materials, as seen above.

They adapt to private and public environments

The flexible structure of the sliding door allows you to choose numerous configurations. The internal wall variants, for example, include a movable door that disappears inside a box installed in the wall. This is the option that undoubtedly has the least visual impact, and easily transforms the room, making it a unique environment if necessary.

On the contrary, in doors that slide outside the wall, the door slides remaining immediately in front of the wall when the door is moved. An ideal solution for work environments, such as kitchens and offices, but also for public places, such as bathrooms and services.

They can be used without any difficulty

Unlike hinged and leaf doors, the sliding door has a decidedly more immediate and simple operation. The lack of handles ensures faster opening and, once again, saving space. The sliding door also lets in natural light, and unlike traditional doors, it can be left open to create an open space in a few moments. The lack of the door, in fact, makes the door disappear into the environment, giving a feeling of fluidity with the entire room. The result is even better if you choose glass alternatives, or solutions matching the shades of the room. The choice is wide, and it adapts to any type of room.
