Sliding mirrored closet doors will enlarge and brighten your room. You can also widen and brighten your entry hall by using them for your entry hall closets.
Mirrors create the illusion of bigger space so your room or your entry hall appears bigger or wider when you install these type of doors.
Sliding or bypass closet doors are also now offered in do-it-yourself kits so you do not have to hire someone to install them for you if you have been doing some projects in your home.
Sliding doors are even easier to install than bi-fold doors. When installing sliding doors, you just need to install a bottom and top track. When installing the bi-fold version, you need to have precise matching of the door opening, the drywall jambs and the bi-fold doors.
Sliding closet doors are also now affordable. They range from as low as $70 to $500. You can even consider the 8-foot tall mirrored version that span your floor to ceiling space. Buying them as part of your home improvement project will not break your budget.
Here are some mirrored doors that you can choose from.
