Ideally, a closet door should function seamlessly within a room. It should allow for easy access to the closet and open fully into the room without interfering with the room’s furniture, windows or other doors. If the room is small, or if the closet is located close to a bed or other furniture, a sliding door or bifold door might be best.
There are several types of closet doors, each with their own advantages and unique functions.
Hinged doors usually swing out into the room, and are typically seen in walk-in or reach-in closets. These require unobstructed space surrounding the closet entrance.
Bifold doors run on a track and fold when slid open to provide access to the full width of the closet.
Sliding doors usually only permit access to one side of the closet at a time and come in a variety of looks. Sliding doors don’t obstruct space within the room itself.
A professional contractor can help evaluate door options and ensure a sturdy, long-lasting closet door installation. A professional can assist with making any necessary door frame repairs and can help ensure door tracks for sliding or bifold doors safely accommodate a door's weight. Many professionals are even experienced in installing niche door types including sliding barn doors and pocket doors.
