The truth is that all Kestrel designs of closet doors and interior doors are interchangeable. This means that you can have your interior doors match your closet doors throughout your home. Something to keep in mind, however, is that some designs may be more practical for certain types of rooms or closets. Operable and Fixed Louvered Doors for ventilation. False Louver, Tongue & Groove and Panel Doors for sound insulation. Glass and Mirrored doors to help brighten dark rooms. There are also doors that combine designs to offer a bit of each.

The stiles of a door (not “style”) are the vertical frame parts of the door. On interior doors between rooms it is not uncommon to see wider and thicker stiles. This is because most locks and door knobs require a hole drilled right through the door. The thicker door and wider stiles allow this while keeping the door itself structurally sound. On closet doors the overall thickness and stiles can be narrower since locks and handles are not usually required.

Door Hardware

There are 4 basic types of hardware for doors. Hinged doors, pocket doors, bifold doors and sliding doors. With closet doors all 4 types of hardware are used consistently depending really only on how you plan to use the closet. While with interior doors we normally see hinges it is still common to use bifold, sliding and even pocket door hardware used. Below are two good examples.

Interior Door Replacement Company

See if there's a franchise for the Interior Door Replacement Company in your area.
Where I live, these guys are always removing mirrored closet doors and THROWING THEM AWAY. Total waste. I got a gigantic mirror from their dumpster and put it over my mantel.
If there's no IDRC in your area, just go to Home Depot and look at the mirrored closet doors. That's the cheapest way to get really big mirrors.
G'luck!
