Bifold closet doors are a space saver and allow you access your entire closet. However there are disadvantages with certain types of closet doors. Sliding types will only allow you to open one side at a time whilst closets with hinged doors face problems when any items are placed near and around the outside of the door. By far the most convenient door design is the bifold closet door.
If your room just has a small closet, then you would be better to opt for just one bifold closet door, but if it is wide enough, then you could accommodate two doors on opposite sides. Whilst two are not necessary they are definitely more pleasing to the eye and will add a bit of a modern architectural effect to your home. Together with a good paint scheme, it will make the closets blend in with the rest of the wall to make the room feel more unified.
Whether you have a reach-in closet or a large walk-in area closet, a bifold door is certainly the ideal choice. If you do decide to have this type installed on your closets then it is recommended to have a professional install it for you. Correct installation will ensure optimum performance of the door. Afterwards, the only thing that you should have to do to make sure the door keeps working is to put a little grease or oil in the track to prevent any problems with opening and closing.
Another thing to consider when choosing doors for your closet is that the type you opt for will effect the space of your room. If you want to conserve space, then ideally you should install bifold closet doors. Not only are they visually pleasing but they drastically cut down on the space that a hinged one takes up in a room.
When faced with the option of which doors to purchase, bifold closet doors are without a doubt the popular choice over sliding and hinged types because they provide the ability to access the entire closet at one time.
