Glass Bifold Closet Doors

Both Contemporary and Modern

Framed Glass Bifold Closet

Closets are one of the most important components if the furniture sets available in almost all our homes. The designs of the closet doors can be of different types. One of the most popular designs that you must have seen in various houses is the bifold closet doors. These are mainly incorporated in order to save a lot of space around the closet. These are not only modern but also consist of a much desired contemporary appeal. You can select from a good number of varieties like that of the mirrored, glass or it can also be louvered. The styling may either contain frames or it can also be frameless depending on which patterns look better with the entire decoration of the room.

These types of closet doors are mostly constructed out of mahogany and pine. You can match it up with the other doors of your room. If you want then you can also install locks in them to prevent them from getting opened up too easily. You will not have to be too much precise as par the measurements are concerned; this is because that they can be adjusted according to the needs. The bifold closet doors are easily available in almost any retail stores that keep these types of accessories. But it is more likely that you will only get the standard ones over here so in that case if you wish to incorporate any non-standard sized door then you have to more choosy and selective about the place from which you want to purchase the bifold closet doors.

The glass bifold closet doors are basically selected by many mostly because of the contemporary look that they render to their surroundings. One very positive point about the mirrored bifold closet doors us that they render a brighter view to the room in which they have been incorporated and creates an illusion of bigger space. The use of the louvered closet doors are mostly seen in the laundries.

Bifold Closet Door

For the first 15 years that I had a computer I used two pieces of old hollow wooden bifold closet doors across the tops of two two-drawer file cabinets. They made a great desk. The closet doors were free and the file cabinets were also give-aways from a business that closed. The height was just right. The only thing I paid for was four large chimney flue units from the building supply. On their sides on top of the desk at each end they provided nice cubby holes for storage and supported one half of another bifold closet door as a shelf. it was a great set-up

Closet door options

We just replaced our carpet with handscraped laminate and when the installers took off the track, it was old and crumbled. Now we don't have our mirrored closet doors back on and I have a couple options:
1. Get bifold shutters - better access to closet and updated look (and fixes my Feng Shui "issue" that my Friend commented on becuase my bed is facing a mirror. These are expensive and may make the small room feel smaller becuase the mirrors add a perception of a larger space. Replacing both my closets with these will cost over $400.
2. Buy replacement bottom tracks at Lowes special order for about $5 per foot for a total of $50 and ignore the annoying Feng Shui comment

    I have cabinets in my kitchen that are painted.......i want to go oak face frame and doors...............can i pull off the existing face frame, and replace with an oak question is......whats the best way to build the frame......dowels?

    • The face frames may be a beotch to replace; they were built on the cabinet boxes, or glued to them. Just depends on the construction. The best way is to use pocket screws. There is an angled hole (pocket) drilled into th …e fancy machine).

      Otherwise, you just apply the boards individually to the cabinet box and pin the edge that hangs down with a finish nail (not the best method, but it's done on built in shelves everyday).
