Which Interior Doors Are Right For You?

  • Sliding Bypass: Typically seen in closets or as dividers in very large rooms, sliding bypass doors contain two or more door panels that slide past each other on a track.
  • Multifold: For areas with a large opening to the outdoors, such as the entrance to a patio, multifold doors are usually made of glass and up to 10 of them can be installed on a single track. These doors are very easy to slide and stack together before swinging them out of the way.
  • Pocket: In a room where space is at a premium, pocket doors can be used in place of traditional swing-out styles because they actually slide into the wall when they are opened. These are commonly seen in bathrooms, especially to separate the commode from the sink area.
  • Bi-fold: Similar to multifold doors, bi-fold doors have two panels that fold in half when you open them. These are very popular for use in closets and concealing washers and dryers in laundry areas.
  • Swinging: Swinging doors do not latch like traditional doors, so they are easily pushed open in either direction. They can be full-sized or only conceal part of the doorway, similar to what you would find in an Old West saloon.
