See-Through Walls: 4 Clever Modern Sliding Door Designs

Sliding doors can be sleek, simple, and space-saving divider systems if swings get in your way and decorative hinges are not quite your style. These door designs in particular are made for balancing an elegant contemporary look with a classic style of craft, transforming opaque walls into translucent moving works of modern art.

Semi-transparent, wood-framed, sliding screen doors from Raydor are much like the classic rice-paper ones of Japan, these models come with a bit of a twist: each individual door has a design, but moving them creates layered 3D patterns out of flat 2D door frames – ever-changing compositions as they slide back and forth in front of one another. A crafty DIYer could probably even make their own variants.

Sold-wood interior door solutions can make for great space and sound dividers, but sometimes it is nice to let some light, air and visibility between adjacent rooms rather than cut them off completely from one another. For people who prefer there art to be part of active design, this provides an integrated interior concept without having to buy artworks or learn how to build display niches in your walls.
