Sliding closet doors typically have two doors that slide past each other in the door opening, with neither fixed to the wall. In addition to closets, they are also often used to screen a laundry area Like sliding glass doors, sliding closet doors are often called bypass doors.

Typical costs:

  • Plain or mirrored sliding closet doors in steel (less expensive) or aluminum can cost $50-$200, depending on size and style. For example, at Home Depot the Econoline 59"x80" Painted Steel Aztec Gold Mirror Bypass Doors[1] cost $97.
  • Hardware is typically included with these doors and installation is relatively straightforward; hiring a handyman or contractor to install the doors can cost $50-$150 or more, bringing total costs for basic sliding closet doors to $100-$300.
  • Sliding closet doors in wood, with stylish options like raised panels or multiple panes of frosted or patterned glass can cost $500-$2,000 or more, depending on size, style and materials, including hardwoods like walnut or mahogany. For example, Interior Doors Direct charges $430-$450 for Raised 6-Panel Bypass doors in Poplar[2] for a 48"x80" opening, including hardware; the same doors in walnut cost $1,125-$1,300, including heavy-duty hardware.
  • Professional installation can add $100-$1,000 or more, depending on the complexity of the project, bringing total costs for mid- to high-end sliding closet doors to $600-$3,000 or more.

What should be included:
  • For mid-range, high-end or custom sliding closet doors, a company representative will typically visit the home to measure the closet opening before quoting a price.
  • If the existing opening is square, installation is often fairly straightforward. AskTheBuilder.com lists sizing, specification and installation tips for mirrored sliding doors[3] and HGTV has instructions for installating sliding closet doors[4] .
Shopping for sliding closet doors:
  • Sliding doors save space and won't bump nearby furniture, but they may provide somewhat limited access to the corners of the closet. Door&Window.com lists tips[5] for selecting new closet doors.
  • Sliding/bypass doors are available at local lumber yards and home improvement centers like Home Depot[6] or Lowe's[7] ; or search for a local door and window dealer through the American Window and Door Institute[8] .
  • If hiring an installer, verify that the company is properly insured, bonded and licensed[9] ; ask for and check references, and look for any complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau[10] .
