There are a few cons to consider before purchasing. Sliding doors can be an organization challenge because they only display half of the closet space at a time. Tracks can bend during use and wrestling doors out of their tracks can cause additional damage. However, replacing track can be very easy and affordable.

Sliding doors on soffits can be installed in any size opening, allowing full access to the space and providing a stylish division between rooms or to hide utility areas. The hardware and doors can be installed easily and with a moderate skill level.

Replacing old appliances

I've been renting an apartment for over 6 years now. it's in a mid 70s building.
All major appliances and fixtures, like bath tub, vanity, kitchen cabinets, kitchen fan, closet sliding doors have been there since day one. They are worn down, cracked, chipped, ugly things.
when i moved in only floor carpet and refrigerator were new.
i take a decent care about this apartment, steam clean carpets, wash windows and blinds, paint walls. but there is only so much you can do about an old stuff.
i want to ask a landlord to replace them. obviously he is not gonna be enthusiastic about it

How much is your time worth ?

I'll start off by admitting I have ~20 years hard-core DIY experience, including installing/replacing windows, doors, sliding glass doors, skylights, siding, roofing, plumbing, electrical, blah blah blah. Trim carpenting, including lots of crown molding.
Good friend with reasonable DIY skills wanted to install ~6 inch tall oak ornate crown molding, and asked for my help (and borrow some tools, of course). We spent most of a full day together, trimming out a small bathroom alcove (~3 feet square), so he could get the hang of coping, etc. I left him with the tools, and went back to my own "honey-do" list for the week off from work

    I want to replace my current closet doors with 2 sliding mirror doors. The exact measurement of my closet is 75" x 95". Because of my lack of knowledge on these things, I am afraid of getting ripped off. So before I go talking to any salesmen, I would like to get an idea of how much this would cost. Any ideas? Any suggestions? (PS: I live in NYC).

    • As others have said, call Home Depot or Lowes, you've got 2 HD's in Manhattan & others in the surrounding boroughs. Lowes is less populated & none that I know of in Manhattan yet.

      Any installations …ng for their top installation contractor, you will have a better chance of not having any problems later.

      However, if you don't mind a floor track, it would be possible to use a bottom tracked door system.
