Common kinds of wood include Walnut, Oak, and Maple, each offering its unique aesthetic.

Why Choose a Live Edge Sliding Door?

Live-edge doors are also a significant fixture in the home because they are long-lasting, durable, and will bring you a return on your investment. They only require occasional maintenance, such as period oiling of steel parts, to ensure they are sliding smoothly. Chicago Makers Studio ensures that the wood grain will not contract or expand, as all wooden slabs have been kiln-dried to prevent movement.

It is important to ensure all the parts, hardware, and clear instructions are available when installing a live-edge sliding door. Some furniture vendors will offer to install the door and deliver it. If they do not, make sure the vendor has a list of all the parts included so that there aren't any parts missing during installation.

Not only does a live-edge sliding door enhance the visual appeal of your home, but it also offers practical benefits. The sliding mechanism saves space compared to traditional swinging doors, making it ideal for smaller rooms or areas with limited clearance.

Additionally, the natural wood of the live edge door is durable and long-lasting, ensuring that your investment will stand the test of time. The organic beauty of the wood grain adds a touch of nature to your interior, creating a harmonious and inviting environment. If you want more sustainable pieces for your home, live edge sliding doors are the perfect addition.

Different home rooms will often need to be cordoned off for privacy, but installing a large door may not be the look you are looking for, or there may be clearance issues. A sliding door solves all those problems by providing a sleek option that uses natural wood grain and a sliding mechanism that is easy to install and use.
