Room dividers made of sliding doors enable flexible room design by visually separating areas without physically limiting the room. Designer doors, on the other hand, emphasise simple elegance and modern shapes.
There are different types of sliding doors that can be used in different rooms depending on their function and design. Here are some common types:
1. Doors in wood look or plain
- Wood look: Offer a natural and warm aesthetic.
- Plain: Fit harmoniously into a wide variety of room concepts and enable neutral integration into different furnishing styles.

2. Design doors
- Clear lines and minimalist aesthetics for contemporary rooms.
3. Doors with integrated functions
- Sliding doors with sound insulation: Reduce the noise level between rooms.
Sliding door in the wall or in front of the wall?
When it comes to choosing the right sliding door, you have to decide between a sliding door in the wall or in front of the wall. Both options offer a modern and space-saving design, but there are some key differences that should be considered before making a purchase.
The in-wall sliding door is an elegant solution where the door slides into the wall pocket, integrating seamlessly into the wall. This not only creates an aesthetically pleasing look, but also maximises the available space. This option is particularly suitable for small rooms where a minimalist aesthetic and a harmonious sense of space are desired.
If flexibility and ease of installation are preferred, the sliding door in front of the wall could be the right choice. These doors are mounted on the wall and can therefore be installed without extensive structural measures. They also offer the option of integrating lockable mechanisms to ensure privacy and security. Perfectly suited for rooms where additional privacy is required, such as bedrooms or bathrooms.
Material and design: individuality in interior design
The choice of material plays a central role in the design of sliding doors. Wood decors radiate warmth and naturalness, while glass lends a modern and transparent touch. The use of plain decors, on the other hand, enables contemporary designs and individuality. The design options range from classic to contemporary, allowing harmonious integration or targeted accentuation depending on individual taste and furnishing style.
Installation, maintenance and areas of application
Practical considerations are decisive when deciding in favour of sliding doors. They are usually fitted using a sliding mechanism, which makes installation easier. Regular maintenance is uncomplicated and sliding doors are durable. Their diverse areas of application range from room partitioning and the design of passageways to space-saving solutions for walk-in storerooms or pantries.
