Our advice Buying Guide

Unlike bookcase sliding doors, regular doors, which swing on hinges, can be a pain when it's time for them to be installed. The same is true for doors that slide back and lift open. Since sliding doors are easier to install, they're a favorite among homeowners. Add to that a fitted bookcase, and you get the best door on the planet!

Bookcase sliding doors can be installed in mere minutes. Their shelving is widely spaced and generously deep. Since it can be hard to choose the right bookcase sliding doors, read on as we've prepared a buying guide for you.

Placement

The first thing you need to consider is the placement of your bookcase sliding doors. Before we proceed, you need to make sure that you can allocate a lot of time on this project, especially when deciding on the placement. Otherwise, you won’t be satisfied with the output.

To start, look at your house right now. Examine it closely. If you'll be using the room with a bookcase sliding door as a panic room, the room must not have any windows.

The reason for this is because the "inexistence," which you may be after, can be spotted from outside your home. Your hideout, of course, will be compromised with windows. It's better if you choose to make the room where you stockpile food as well as other goods as the place that you consider a safe spot.

Since there will be no windows in the room, make sure it has light sources with the switch placed inside. Don't follow our advice and the room will once again be compromised. There are cases wherein a light installation won't be possible. Your next best choice is a plug-in lamp.

As soon as you've decided on the room that you want to conceal, you can then move on to the next consideration you need to take into account, which is:

Size

The size of a bookcase sliding door will affect your total cost. Before you check your available options, measure the door opening first. By knowing the dimensions, you'll be able to have a rough estimate of how much your home improvement project will cost.

We suggest you leave the measuring of the door opening to a contractor as the expert has experience on this aspect. Contractors know exactly where to take the measurements to ensure you purchase the right bookcase sliding doors.

Material

Traditionally, bookcase sliding doors are made of solid wood boards. Sawn lumber, unfortunately, is expensive. What's recommended if you don't want to spend tens of thousands of dollars on your new door is plywood with hardwood veneer. It's not just less costly, but it's also stronger compared to solid softwoods including pine. If you will be painting the bookcase, we would suggest birch, oak plywood, and maple as they're your best choices. They can be expensive so if you want alternatives, consider high-quality particle boards.

It's not difficult to be captivated and tempted by the possibility of having a secret room in one's home. Now that you know how to choose bookcase sliding doors, you're ready to make your dream come true of having your own safe, private place that's concealed by a bookcase!
