Using sliding glass for your closetdoor can often give your bedroom or the other rooms in your home a unique and sophisticated look. Sliding glass adds illumination to the room, making it appear more spacious. It also eliminates space in the room that would normally be needed when you open and close the closet door, while adding a modern look that keeps your home from looking dated.

There are several advantages of using sliding glass for a closetdoor. First, you do not have to replace it as often, as it is virtually maintenance-free. Also, gone is the headache of a closetdoor coming off its hinges or not closing properly. The thick, tempered glass used for these doors is both safe and lightweight. Sliding glass doors are also inexpensive, costing much less than traditional wooden doors, and they can be opened or closed with a gentle push.

If you want to purchase glass for your closetdoor, you will need to measure the closet space horizontally and vertically. Measure the opening for the closet from one inside edge to the other. To be on the safe side, use the smallest possible measurement for ordering the door; that way, if there is a small gap, you can cover it with decorative trim.

When choosing a sliding glass closet door, you have a wide array of colors and styles at your disposal. The colors available for the door frame include white, silver, black, charcoal, wenge, maple and walnut, while the glass choices include milky, black, frosted, laminate and smoked. No matter what color or style you select for the glass or frame, sliding glass always exudes sophistication and elegance.

All frames are made from aluminum, which is much lighter and more environmentally friendly than wood frames. You can choose from six different frame finishes: brushed silver for a clean look, or one of the three rich, wood-grain colors including wenge (a dark wood color), light maple or walnut. For a modern look, black and white finishes are also available. A sliding glass closetdoor will work with carpet, concrete, tile, and wood, and if the carpet is a thick shag, a silicone coating can be placed under the rails to add sturdiness.

Beautify your home and free up space at the same time by using sliding glass for your closetdoor. Visit a showroom near you for a hands-on demo and a visual sampling of different glass styles.
