Wood selection for Japanese sliding doors
To show the Japanese style, when it comes to the choice of wood, natural wood color is often preferred.
If you want a modern Japanese minimalist style, you can choose light wood colors to create a bright feeling, such as sycamore, white birch, beech, hard maple, and oak, while for a traditional Japanese style, you can choose dark woods, such as black walnut, Black cherry wood.
Why choose Japanese sliding doors
The biggest difference between Japanese sliding doors and ordinary doors is the material. Ordinary doors are generally made of wood or mixed with glass, while Japanese sliding doors are made of wooden door frames with a grid design and “Dacron” fabric.
Since Japanese sliding doors generally have left and right openings, they can save space. For small rooms, saving space is very important. In addition, Japanese sliding doors have high light transmittance and can be used during the day. Natural lighting is added to the interior, and it becomes unique when the lights are turned on at night. In addition, the fibers on the fabric have many breathable holes, which also have the function of filtering air, absorbing moisture and keeping warm.
Furthermore, as long as Japanese-style sliding doors are installed, the atmosphere of the home will immediately transform into a Japanese-style room. This style is very popular among young customers, so many families have chosen Japanese-style sliding doors in recent years.
Disadvantages of Japanese sliding doors
Although Japanese sliding doors can add to the atmosphere of the home environment and have the advantages of light transmission and ventilation, its sound insulation effect is relatively limited. If you want to meet the needs of quiet working or reading, or as a room where the elders live temporarily, This point must be paid more attention to.
In addition, Japanese-style sliding doors need to install tracks on the ground, which may increase the inconvenience for the elderly, which also needs to be noted.
In addition, if there are privacy considerations, you can also install a built-in Japanese sliding door lock to make the privacy of the compartment more complete.
Japanese sliding doors need to install rails, and rails tend to accumulate dust and dirt, making cleaning more troublesome. If it is not cleaned regularly, it will not only affect the smoothness of the sliding door, but also shorten the service life of the sliding door.
In addition, the wooden strips or grille shapes on the Japanese sliding door will also increase the difficulty of cleaning, which requires patience and time to clean slowly.
In addition to daily cleaning, Japanese sliding doors, like general wooden furniture, must be regularly wiped and maintained with wood care oil to extend their life. Rail and pulley hardware also need to be regularly maintained with lubricating oil to prevent them from getting stuck due to the influence of temperature and humidity over time.
improvements and changes
With the needs of modern life, Japanese sliding doors have also been improved and changed. For example, the color, number, thickness, distribution and grid number of sliding doors can be selected at will.
In addition, if you use a Japanese-style sliding door in a living room partition and there are no windows in the room, you can also change the upper part of the sliding door into a movable ventilation window. When the sliding door is closed, you can open the upper transom window to allow air circulation.
