Although here at Knock Off Decor we are all about saving our hard earned cash by making our own knock off versions of home decor, we do also believe in investing a little every now and then on quality fittings and hardware. These are the types of details that can make or break a DIY project. This is most definitely the case when it comes to the hardware for internal doors, especially for sliding doors with exposed tracks. So the mission this week was to find the perfect exposed sliding door hardware for a reasonable price. Almost straight away we found these stylish, rustic and slightly industrial toned Sliding Door Hardware Kits!
The beauty of these Sliding Hardware Kits is that they are a kit, which means everything you need to install your sliding door is included! You get the wall attachments & spacers, to mount the rail to wall; door stops to keep rollers on rail; the track with pre-drilled holes for wall attachments; rollers for use with door; floor guide to keep door in its position; anti-jump pins to keep rollers on rail; installation manual; along with other screw parts necessary for assembly.
The conclusion we have come to is buying your sliding door hardware as a kit is the only way to go. This means even a novice could install it and guarantees you have all the parts necessary for easy and safe assembly.
We have come up with a list of our favourite kit styles.
Firstly, this Basic J Style, which looks amazing positioned against a white wall and door.
There is this U Style, which is a refreshing change to otherwise usual straight look.
Then there is the Rhombic Style, which is quite visually stunning and works as a focal point in its own right.
Lucky last is the Straight Style, which is the more minimalist style of the group and our personal favourite.
