Guide on Installing Sliding Doors at Home and Decorating Them

Sliding doors can enhance the aesthetics of a building, and augment the airflow and the extent of natural light in an indoor environment to a significant extent as well. This article also provides a few tips on decorating such doors.


Sliding doors have become extremely popular today, especially the ones made up of uPVC. These doors are ideally made up of two (or more) sashes that slide horizontally, either left or right, on tracks. Such doors can be made taller and wider with the addition of sashes. Good quality uPVC sliding doors feature multi-chamber system that increases sound and heat insulation, and have locking systems that account for enhanced security.  
There are a number of advantages of installing uPVC sliding doors at a home. Here are some of them:
· Energy efficiency: Sliding doors are quite efficient insulators, especially their uPVC variants.  They help in making sure that a house stays cooler in the summer and warm in the winter.  Sliding doors also have a good sealing, and hence are quite energy efficient. They assist the air-conditioning unit installed to maintain the desired temperature in a room, thereby resulting in lower electricity expenses.
· Space savings: Sliding doors operate without hinges. They slide on a track instead of swinging on hinges. Hence, they do not require any extra swinging space like the traditional doors.
· Light and ventilation: Sliding doors let the optimal amount of natural light and air come inside the room, thereby keeping them comfortable and well-ventilated.
Tips for decorating sliding doors
In addition to looking extremely elegant and sophisticated, sliding doors also enable people to save space in a room. To enhance the beauty of these doors, people can choose to hang curtains on it. Here are a few decorating tips for sliding door designs that people can follow to enhance their appearance :  
· Hang a thin metal rod close to the ceiling in order to maintain a uniform and simple appearance.  Long curtains can easily cover the whole wall, and not just the sliding doors.
· Diverse windows of a room would need distinguished types of curtains. While sliding doors featured in the bedroom would require dark and heavy curtains to maintain a level of privacy inside the room, in the living room, people should opt to put brightly coloured and light curtains to ensure that adequate natural light is able to get inside the space.
· Try to match the colour of the curtains with the décor and palette theme of the room, so that they look absolutely impeccable.  
· A valance can be added to the doors to hide the curtain fittings. Homeowners can opt for a valance that has a distinct wooden appearance, so as to add a rustic look to the room.
· The curtain rod should be installed high up on the ceiling so that the curtains can easily cover the wall from the top to bottom. This would be a particularly nice option for bedrooms, where it is important for the décor to look absolutely harmonious.
· In addition to curtains, people can choose to install blinds to enhance the look of the doors.
The above-mentioned decorating tips for sliding door designs can help homeowners to ensure that their rooms look extremely attractive. By installing uPVC sliding doors at their home and beautifully decorating it, homeowners can enhance both the functionality and appearance of their rooms.

Easy Tips For The Small Bathroom
In most apartments the bathroom is quite small, but if the bathroom renovation is cleverly designed, even a small bathroom can become an eye-catcher. The right bathroom furniture offers plenty of storage space. For small bathrooms, narrow and high cupboards are particularly suitable. A bathtub should largely be avoided, a walk-in shower makes the room appear larger and there is no barrier to overcome. A floor-level shower is a real relief, especially for older residents. Also, the toilet and the washbasin must be placed correctly, often the sanitary facilities are simply in the wrong place and the bath looks cramped. The floor-level shower - the ideal partner in the small bathroom! In small bathrooms, a floor-level shower with a shower wall made of glass or transparent plastic is recommended. Shower curtains further reduce the size of the bathroom. It is ideal if a shower tray is completely dispensed with and the floor is also equipped with tiles. It is important to make sure you have the right floor covering and use anti-slip tiles accordingly. Tip: In order to create a harmonious overall picture, the same tiles should be used on the floor as on the wall. This simply makes the bathroom look bigger and more spacious. An integrated shower channel allows the water to drain off without any problems. All sanitary articles should be installed by an expert, he knows what is important. If the shower partition can be swivelled, the user also has more space when he is not showering. Space-saving Bathtubs For Small Bathrooms If you don't have a tiny bathroom, you don't necessarily have to do without a bathtub. In the meantime, there is a multitude of so-called space-saving bathtubs for small bathrooms on the market. But corner bathtubs or bathtubs that are deeper than an ordinary bathtub can also be integrated into smaller bathrooms. All these bathtubs have one thing in common: they are significantly shorter than conventional bathtubs. This aspect means that they can also be installed in a small bathroom if there is enough space. The Washbasin For a small bathroom, the normal washbasins are often much too big. Not only are they often too wide, but they also often stand much too far into the room. So-called space-saving washbasins or furniture washbasins with smaller washbasins are particularly suitable. In the case of furniture washbasins, the washbasin is combined with a vanity unit. To ensure that there is enough storage space, the washbasin should be integrated flush with the top of the washbasin. There are a large number of different furniture washbasins on the market, in different sizes and colours. Compared to a conventional washbasin, space-saving washbasins are less deep, sometimes slightly wider. However, this also varies from model to model. You can use a closed cupboard or a model with shelves. All bathroom utensils can then be stored here. This creates a lot of additional storage space and space is not lost. The Arrangement Of The Sanitary Equipment In the past, the sanitary facilities were usually mounted next to each other on the wall. But this only makes the bathroom smaller. However, the specialist prefers the pre-wall installation, he practically pulls in walls where there are none at all. The pipes then run along the wall and special claddings make it possible to install washes and the like at any point. This pre-wall can be installed half-high or at ceiling height. The Storage Space The bathroom must offer enough storage space, but most conventional cupboards are far too large. When renovating a bathroom, you must not give away a single centimetre, so many small cupboards are a hindrance. Tip: Better is a large bathroom cupboard with space for towels, a hairdryer and tins and tubes. It also brings a bit of visual tranquillity into the small bathroom. Special corner shelves can also be very advantageous for corners. They offer storage space and are beautiful to look at and do not take up much space. A mirror cabinet should be placed above the washbasin, it also offers plenty of space for cosmetics, a mirror and is illuminated. If you have a washbasin without a base cabinet, you can also place a small shelf under the washbasin as an alternative. Due to its open and slim shape, it doesn't look so clunky and still offers space for various utensils. When renovating the bathroom, don't forget the space above the door. Often there is unused storage space, which can be used either with wall cupboards or shelves. Access is then facilitated by a folding stool. The Colours The colour design is very important for a small bathroom, bright colours make the room look bigger. Hard contrasts should also be avoided, yellow and white are a successful colour combination. Large tiles should also be used. This results in fewer joints and makes the bathroom appear quieter. Mosaic tiles can set additional accents and create a real eye-catcher. Accessibility Even a small bathroom can be barrier-free, a walk-in shower is practically "obligatory", but also handholds or a seat for showering must not be missing. Not only older people or the disabled will appreciate it. A barrier-free bathroom is comfortable for all ages! What Can You Do Yourself? When renovating a bathroom, you can do a lot yourself, but the sanitary facilities should always be used by a specialist. The user himself can clear out the bathroom and perhaps make a plan of what the bathroom should look like later. Tiles can certainly be covered with glue, towel holders and holders for the toothbrush cups can also be attached and of course, the bathroom itself can be decorated. But the sanitary facilities, the electrical installation and the tiles should always be laid by a specialist. That can save a lot of trouble later. Be the first to share this contribution.
