Choosing hinged doors vs. sliding doors depends on a couple of factors. If it’s purely for aesthetic reasons, hinged doors look better. But they can also open wider than sliding doors creating a bigger entryway into your home. This makes it easier when you have a large party or are moving furniture in and out of the house. Sliding doors are better for saving space. You can place furniture closer to the sliding doors without worrying about clearance issues, opening up the floor space in your home.
