The Ultimate Space Saving Doors from JELD-WEN

Investing in sliding doors in your home has many advantages. Not only do they provide a function, but they also look elegant and can act as a design feature, adding a stylish edge to your interior. JELD-WEN looks at the benefits of installing sliding doors in the home below:

Space saving

As sliding doors operate without a hinge, there doesn’t have to be any extra space taken up when the door is open. This is hugely beneficial in homes where you’re short on space or you want to adjoin two rooms like the dining room and kitchen.

If you want to increase the flow of natural light throughout your home, glazed sliding doors will allow more light to flood through. Not only is this a great way to brighten up your home, it will also create the illusion of more space.

Finally, sliding doors help you create different ‘zones’ in your home, without shutting off rooms completely. This is a great advantage if you are currently working from home and need to have privacy but still stay connected to the rest of the family.


Depending on the sliding door range you opt for, they can add as much or as little to your home as possible. The Grange barn door range from JELD-WEN offers a variety of different styles available, so you’ll be sure to find the right sliding doors to go with the rest of your home decor . From Oak and primed white styles to doors with glazing panels to increase the light flow in between rooms, you can find the perfect sliding doors to add that extra touch of elegance to your home.

Why not create a real grand statement and add two sliding doors as a room divider, this sort of grand reveal of the room behind will add a real wow factor to your home!

Don’t forget the track options too, you can really customise the feature in your home to urban industrial or sleek contemporary living.


Surprisingly, you may never have to hear a door slam again! With a sliding door it will glide open and shut peacefully, avoiding the risk of waking up the whole house every time you leave a room!      JELD-WEN Grange doors also feature an ‘easy glide’ mechanism making opening and closing the doors easy to use and operate.

Where to use sliding doors in the home?

Sliding doors can be used in a variety of settings within the home.  They are perfect for adjoining two rooms, for example the dining room and kitchen. Perfect for Christmas day dining when you are in and out of each room.  JELD-WEN’s Grange doors have a top hung sliding mechanism therefore allow for uninterrupted flooring throughout the rooms.

Sliding doors make a great feature in the bedroom. Lots of furniture in the bedroom can make it feel small and dark, with space being a premium. However a sliding door system opens the room and is a more aesthetically pleasing system.  In addition, consider using sliding doors for wardrobes and cupboards.

Pantries and Utility rooms are often seen as ‘messy’ environments. Sliding doors make the perfect addition to covering these areas with a cool, contemporary feature without being bulky and intrusive.

Maybe you are lucky enough to have a Wine Cellars in the home.  These elegant sliding doors make the perfect ‘grand reveal’ to any visitor stopping by for a glass of wine.

JELD-WEN Grange doors come in a variety of designs with a choice of track options. Guaranteed for up to 5 years so you have peace of mind when it comes to choosing these doors.
