Location Considerations for Interior Doors

When shopping for a new interior door, it’s important to find a type of door that will compliment your existing space. Along with considerations for the color and style to match the aesthetics of the home, you also want to look at the size of the rooms that the door will serve to connect.

Here is a quick cheat sheet of when you should consider installing each of the four basic types of interior doors:

Bypass Doors: These are double doors that are on rollers which allow each section of the door to pass by the other. This allows for bypass doors to be installed in areas where space is an issue, such as closets and small bedrooms.

Pocket Doors: Pocket doors are another option that is appropriate for tight spaces because they slide on tracks to fit inside of walls. This makes them a great and versatile choice for spaces ranging from family rooms to bathrooms. You’ll want to make sure that the walls are wide enough to provide you with space to install the pocket doors without interfering with support beams, wiring or other structural items.

Hinge Doors: Because hinge doors open up and outward, you’ll need to install them in areas where there is plenty of room. They work well in doorways leading to kitchens or dining rooms. Their noise reduction potential also makes them ideal for bedrooms.

Folding Doors: The ability of folding doors to pivot on a hinge makes them a great space-saving addition. One area where they are perfect is for closest — their design allows homeowners to access and use the entire closet space.
