When one door closes, another door opens.
–Alexander Graham Bell

You’ve probably encountered the above quote, you just didn’t know it was a sliding door.

I just saw a clever ad, in a home remodeling magazine, pitching sliding doors and room partitions as a way to make your existing space more functional. Of course, in a recession, the alternative — moving to bigger quarters — isn’t feasible for many people.

The company’s pitch: ‘if you can’t afford an addition, try division.’
