Open Spaces

Japanese sliding doors can offer you an open concept living style.  This is so much more and just a style of interior design, it is a lifestyle overhaul and in some cases, will require structural changes.  These doors really offer so much more than beauty, however, they are matched by the functions they provide and their efficiency.  A traditional house in Japanese culture has few walls that are permanent on the interior.  Therefore, these doors typically served as walls that were moveable inside the home, and allowed for space saving.

The sliding door allows you to close the door when you want the room to be private and to expand the space by leaving them open when privacy is not a concern.  Those who are looking for temporary and inexpensive options to these doors might find Japanese room dividers beneficial.

DIY Or Buy

Japanese door kits that are pre-made are available and can be installed quite easily, especially for those with a little handyman background. You can install the door, or you can contract a company or person to install the doors for you. Those who are frugal may be able to pass up on the pre-made doors and give it a shot at constructing them on their own.

If you don’t already have these tools on hand, then it could end up costing you more in the long run to build the door on your own.  On top of the potential added cost of buying tools, you should also be aware that a door you make solo will not have a warranty like one pre-manufactured will.
