Bypass closet doors are attached to rails mounted on the ceiling and floor or could be hanging on rails mounted only on the upper part.
They do not require extra space to open because they slide over one another and multiple wings can slide on a single track.
Often they are made of steel and have a full mirror on one side and allow you to open and close the them without applying any force.
These models are an inexpensive option. Of course, there is a huge range of high quality hardware so everyone could choose as per his budget.
The greatest disadvantage is that only one side can open at a time which means you cannot access your full closet.
