Sliding doors provide functional and aesthetic benefits. Functionally, they are great space savers. The traditional swing door usually needs 9 feet or more of space to function properly. While this may not be a problem for large houses, houses with a lack of space will find it more than problematic. They need all the space they can get for furniture, appliances and movement. French doors are even bigger space savers.

One advantage of sliding doors is their support system. Sliding barn doors use a track for movement. Therefore, all the weight of the door is distributed along the track. This allows the installation of heavier doors than usual without affecting the stability and ease of movement. For places that need more security but are limited in space, a large sliding door would work well.
