Sometimes we just walk right through them and don’t even pay attention to them (no pun intended!). I’m talking about doors. Doors are a hot topic with interior home remodeling and I would like to show you a couple of ideas for you to consider when remodeling your home’s interior.
Bi-Folding doors have always been popular door choices for laundry rooms and small closets. But have you seen bi-folding doors that completely block the doorway when they are opened? Frustrating to say the least.
I have replaced so many of these old-fashioned, annoying bi-folding doors with a new generation of bi-folding door. The new generation actually folds completely out of the door way! You have complete access to the entire doorway opening and everything that is behind the door.
This is a great idea for laundry rooms and closets that you use frequently…even kitchen pantries would be a good application of these new bi-folding doors.
Pocket Doors have really become popular around Greater Charlotte. The Craftsman-style homes were early adopters of Pocket Doors because of the architect’s goals to “give the homeowner more usable space.”
So today, Pocket Doors come in many styles and material choices. But the key element of the Pocket Door remains the same today…it simply rolls inside of the wall and remains hidden until needed.
Always a great idea for kitchens, bathrooms, room dividers, offices, libraries, etc.
You can see in the example photo to the right that introducing glass inlays with wood accents gives this pair of sliding doors a really elegant design touch…but still maintaining the highly-functional design of the original Pocket Doors!
Some homes have larger door and walk-through openings where the homeowner would still like to have the ability to “close off” the room. These larger openings require a really interesting door concept called the Sliding Bypass Door.
The Sliding Bypass Door set-up usually consists of at least three (3) doors that are hung staggered (in front of and in back of each other) so the doors can completely slide past each other.
The Sliding Bypass Door set-up is a great door and walk-through solution for larger openings that can be found in kitchen transitions, dining room transitions, master bedroom closets, and larger great room or living room entries.
Still yet another type of home interior door is the Multi-fold Door system. Multi-fold Doors are ideal for larger closet, storage, laundry, play rooms and even media rooms where traditional doors are too small.
I’ve seen Multi-fold Door systems that had a total of 16 door panels! The goal with a Multi-fold Door system is that you can conceal the closet or room but still have easy access to enjoy opening up that room and revealing the large walk-through doorway.
Wood remains the top choice for large Multi-fold Door systems. But so many different faces and styles of these wooden doorways are available in virtually any style you could imagine or want! These types of doors make an excellent and easy way to screen rooms and divide larger open spaces in your home.
