What it Takes to Install Sliding Door Closets

Popular choices for bedrooms are sliding door closets which come in a variety of finished options including solid and hollow core options. Finishing an unfinished door will make installation a lot less of a hassle and we can all use a little extra ease in our lives!

Getting From Start to Finish in 10 Easy Steps

  1. As you begin your DIY project we have to lay the foundation of our work by building the frame. Simply measure the door opening, and the frame to length. Organize all the pieces laying them out making sure they are square. Now nail the frame together with a hammer and you’re done with step one!
  1. Setting the frame comes next. Setting the frame inside the opening and using a level to guarantee the legs of the frame are plumb. Use shims to adjust the frame inside the opening and to offer a nailing surface.
  1. Level the frame at the top of the door and use shims to adjust and provide a nailing surface.
  1. Attaching the frame comes next, but remember to check that any adjustments you made keep the frame in a level and plumb position. Nail through the shims to attach the frame into position. You can also use screws instead.
  1. Trim the door to fit. Once you measure the doors opening you can add the track dimension in. The bottom of the door can be scored with a utility knife.
  1. Attach the top track using manufacturers provided hardware and following their instructions to attach the top track of the door frame.
  1. Install the door brackets and rollers, mounting them on the upper end of the door, checking to see that they won’t interfere with the movement of the rollers.
  1. Set the door rollers inside the track on the top and hang the door in place. Do the same for the next door.
  1. Check and adjust to make certain the doors are level and adjust accordingly with the roller and bracket hardware.
  2. Install the floor guides and door hardware following the manufacturers specifications. You want the doors to be able to slide easily through the opening.

Making Your Closets a Focal Point in the Room

How do you capture the eye using interior design? By working with focal points and knowing where having on that adds to the attractiveness of the room. Let’s start off by defining what we are referring to as focal points.

What are Focal Points?

Focal points are used in photography and artistic work like painting. The place in which the lense or “eye” of the camera capturing the image is focused. A focal point in the interior design world means the same thing in that it is an area that draws attention to a central point. This look can be accomplished by methods like:

  • A bold piece of furniture or large work of art
  • A grouping of items like a painting hung above a fireplace
  • Anything the draws the eyes more strongly to one area of the room than the other.

Walls do not have to be a focal part or even part of it. Carpets with bold and rich colors or floors, lights that hang from the ceiling (chandelier style,) and furniture pieces also create a strong visual pull.

The Myth of One Focal Point

Rooms are not just cut and dry enclosures with no potential for expressing the personality of the designer. Some mistakenly believe that a like a bedroom can have only one focal point, but this is not an accurate theory. Your closet doors can be part of the focal point of your bedroom in addition to a beautiful headboard for your bed. Try to keep your focal points to a limit of 3 including the closet door in the bedroom. Making the closet doors the dominant focal point in the room will draw the eyes quickly to anything to draw attention to the closet doors like:

  • A dark rug or piece of art near the door.
  • A bold hue or eye catching pattern
  • A window near a closet door will also add to the space by filtering light and adding atmosphere.
