2. Introduce a sliding door A sliding door with glass insets will bring lightness into the kitchen. Unlike hinged doors which provide only limited view, the sliding doors comprise three or four door panels which open up the entire width of the kitchen and park on one side of the kitchen. The sliding doors give the flexibility to slide back the panels and create a closed kitchen when needed. Make sure that the doors slide and park on the side that will hide the cooking area and the sink from view, just as in this example.
4. They can let in the lightIn addition to maintaining flow, with a sliding door you can create division between two spaces without having to completely block out the other space and therefore its light.Seek sliding doors with glass or, if you want the light but not the full visual connection, opt for a frosted or seeded glass door for privacy.
