A laundry room is one of the busiest rooms in the house. The laundry room is a utility room, separated from the more formal living rooms of the house, and such a room therefore needs a suitable laundry room door. Laundry rooms doors come in all shapes and sizes. The most basic of all laundry room doors are the interior laundry room doors with swinging hinges and a doorknob. Purchased as a stock item or custom made, these laundry room doors mimic the architectural design of the other doors in the home. Some interior laundry room doors called colonial-style doors sport four or six raised panels, and they are suitable for a traditional style home.
Bifold laundry room doors are extremely popular because of their versatility and variety of styles. These doors, usually installed in pairs for wide closets, are narrow door panels situated on tracks and connected with hinges. When the doors are pressed in the center, the hinges cause the doors to fold open. These laundry room doors are perfect for narrow laundry room closets or for wide door openings. Bifold laundry room doors come in a dizzying array of sizes and styles, including raised panel, flat panel, louvered, glass and wood.
