Sliding doors offer both aesthetic value and functionality, making them an emerging trend in the world of interior design. If you’re thinking of renovating your home or adding a new room, and you also want to incorporate an interior sliding door in your design but don’t know the best place to install it, this guide might help you decide.

Master Suite

The bedroom is the most common area where it is useful for you to use a sliding door or a pocket door. Installing a sliding door in a bedroom where the main entryway is located close to an en-suite bathroom door will save a huge amount of space. It will also allow both doors to be opened at the same time without obstructing the hallway.

There are other ways to make an interior sliding door look natural in the bedroom. If you want to fit a bathroom in a small area, you can also use sliding doors to conceal the master bath. You can also try using a sliding door to update your bedroom closet, whether you have a standard wardrobe or a walk-in closet.


Love to throw dinner parties? Sliding doors make a stylish partition between the kitchen and the dining area. They block the view, especially if you want to keep your guests from seeing how busy you are (and how messy your kitchen can be) when you’re preparing the dishes.

Instead of hinged cabinets, you can use sliding cabinet doors as a safer and more stunning alternative. Sliding cabinet doors will give your kitchen pantry a contemporary look and reduce injuries caused by open cabinet doors.

Secret Room

If you’re planning to turn that extra space in your home to your personal nook or a small office, using a sliding door is a great choice. Sliding doors will keep you hidden from view and keep distractions away from sight, whether you’re working on a project or just need some alone time. If your house doesn’t have a garage or shed, placing sliding doors in a hallway can help add storage space inside your home.

You can use sliding doors to create a temporary divider between your child’s bedroom and play area. Keeping a separate playroom will provide less distraction when it’s time for bedtime or study time.

Open Living Spaces

Sliding doors are ideal in open-plan interiors, like living in a studio or a loft. You can use an interior sliding door as a temporary sliding wall to divide space instead of building a permanent wall. Sliding doors will help create the openness or the privacy you need, depending on the situation.

Appliances and Consoles

Sliding doors don’t have to be full-sized. You can have sliding doors custom-built to hide your wall-mounted TV or fit your home entertainment system, including gaming consoles.

As enumerated above, sliding doors can add beauty and function to your home in a variety of ways. With planning and creativity, you can make your home look more charming and become easier to navigate using interior sliding doors.
