Alternative door for linen closet ?

paintedpeggiesFebruary 25, 2013

In the hall/kids bathroom the linen closet door is right behind the bathroom door and is always getting slammed by it. The doorknobs also get caught because they hit against each other.

I want to remove the linen closet door but then what? Accordian door? Any ideas would be appreciated!

(Or I could take off the main door and do a barn door, but how complicated is that? expensive?)

Why not put a hinge limiter on the bathroom door so it can't slam into the linen closet door?

Could you just leave the closet door off the linen closet and just make the space open shelves that are only seen when the bathroom door is closed?

Would a bi-fold door work?

Hinge stop.

Wow, great ideas...I might do the curtain or bi-fold door.

I don't think the hinge stop would work because the door knobs jut out so far they bang together before the actual doors come close to touching.

I looked up barn doors and yikes! Had no idea they are that pricey.
