Suggestions for updating louver bifold doors
But I can’t install that until I trim out the door, so really I need to install door trim before doing anything else. I’ve been dragging my feet on trimming out that door.
Ever since I installed the new door in the bathroom, I’ve been dissatisfied with it.
In other words, I’m hoping it’ll turn out not only providing useful storage, but also being pretty. But as much as it’s been bothering me, I just couldn’t think of another solution.
If it’s installed like it is now, it covers the linen storage area.
When the door is open, it covers the linen storage area behind it, just as it did before, and that configuration never bothered me with the old bathroom. It just really bothers me, and it makes the room feel smaller.
But with the door moved over enough to accommodate a vanity, the door no longer opens up a full 90 degrees. Plus, the previous linen closet was strictly utilitarian.
Immediately after I finished the floor, I wanted so badly to jump right in and start adding the wainscoting to the walls.There was nothing pretty about it, so it didn’t bother me at all that it was covered up when the door was open.But I plan on making the new linen storage area actually part of the design of the room.But I really do think it’ll look great when it’s finished!After seeing those pictures, and seeing how good those doors look, I decided to do some searching to see if others had taken bifold doors and turned them into French style doors. Danielle at 2 Little Superheroes turned her bi-fold pantry door into French style doors.
It would be relatively quick, easy, and would give me some immediate gratification.
