DELICIOUS SLIDERS

I’m in love with sliding doors used for interior spaces. Not the typical glass patio doors…I mean the sliders that utilize interesting hardware as part of the design and feature doors that are works of art. Like these.

You can get creative with the “door” section…even a painting on a canvas can be mounted on gliders…or a sculptural piece of metal…or a carved wooden door…or etched glass…or a rice paper shoji screen…or a fancy contemporary veneer finish door…or a stretched textile like an antique rug…you’re limited only by your imagination and budget. I like the form and the function of sliders like these and I believe they are excellent feng shui.

Click on the photos to take you to the design source links for each one. Or better still, create your own slider and DIY.

Consider childrens’ rooms or kitchens that have chalk paint applied to the sliders so you can write on them (child’s play or grocery lists or inspiring messages!)

  1. WOW!! I love the door idea so much, I too have always loved sliding doors, I might have to look into putting some sliding doors in my home, I always thought they would have to be pocket doors but now i see you can do a slider almost anywhere! Thanks for the awsome ideas!

    • Thanks for commenting Jessica (btw, I was in Winter Park recently at the Morse Museum and LOVED the Tiffany collection–very inspiring. I think I would be there every week for an hour or two if I lived in WP!). One of the ideas I have always loved is to put an actual stretched canvas of one of my paintings on a sliding mechanism to use as a door. You could even stretch mounted fabric to do this idea. Good luck 🙂
