Choosing The Best Closet Doors For Your Home
If you have an older home that was built within the past 10 years, you might notice that the doors are beginning to deteriorate. This is because builders use cheaper doors than what you would have bought yourself. Some of the best closet doors are solid wood or at least have a solid core. There are many styles of replacement doors you can find for any need in your home. There are closet doors for a pantry, wardrobe, utility room, laundry nook, walkin closet, linen closet or any closet in your home. They can be found at building supply retailers such as Home Depot or Lowes.
Many interior doors are swing style doors that take up space when they are opened. The best closet doors are bi-pass, bifold or sliding doors. The Series 4050 Steel Framed Mirrored Bi-Pass Door from doitbest.com has snap-in bottom guides and a low rise bottom track and detachable fascia. It comes in sizes from 47” x 80-1/2” to 71” x 80-1/2” and in white or Mayan gold for $87.99. There are commercial doors that make great replacement doors for closets as well. They are modern is style yet provide a contemporary look for almost any room in your home.
Some of the design options that are available are bifold, sliding, accordion and bi-pass doors. The Masonite Lauan Bifold Door is constructed of fiber stiles and rails with finger joint center stiles. They come unfinished so you can paint or stain them to match any décor. They are 1-3/8” thick and come in various widths and heights for $129.99. If you want something with a little style, consider designer closet doors. Some can be carved to the design you choose although they are slightly more costly than store bought doors.
There are other alternative doors that can be used for a closet. Some of the best closet doors aren’t doors at all but rather sliding panels of plexiglass or fabric. They are lightweight and take up very little space for those areas where space is a concern. They are designed for both commercial and residential use so you shouldn’t have any problem finding one that is right for your needs. Their prices will vary greatly depending on the size, style and design you choose. If you check online you may be able to find them at wholesale costs.
Some homeowners think that simple is best. Closet doors that are plain slab style doors make great doors and in many instances can be transformed into bi-pass or sliding doors to help save space. For instance the Solid Core 6 Panel Pine Slab door at homedepot.com uses clear wood veneers for painting or staining. It is a solid core door and measures 30” x 80” x 1-3/8” for $91.00. This type of door is a very durable door and will last for years. The next time you are in the market for closet doors, choose the best closet doors you can find so you won’t have to worry about replacing them in a year or two.
