Also, fibreglass doors come with a higher price than aluminium doors. This is one of the reasons why homeowners choose aluminium doors for their bathrooms.

Now that we have figured out the materials, let’s go to step 2.

Styles of bathroom interior doors

Styles is another key factor to consider for choosing bathroom doors. And the styles of the doors largely depend on the space.

So, have the right measurement of space.

And the first space for your bathroom door is the size of the opening. Most of the door should be smaller than the opening size. Both in length and width. Like, the width of the jambs should match the thickness of the wall.  This is important to know when you are planning to buy a pre-hung door.

But on the other hand, a few door styles come in bigger sizes than the opening. Because these bathroom doors work alongside the wall. The sliding barn doors for example.

You will find more relations between the space and styles below. And the tips for making your choice as well.

Hinged Doors/swing doors

Hinged doors can be the most common doors for many years. Or you find them with another name: swing doors. The typical structure of a hinged door/swing door is like this.

The door frame and the door leaf are the parts you see the most. Then the hinges connect the one end of the door to the door jamb. A door jamb is a vertical side of the door frame. And the other end of the door swings inward or outward. Some hinges allow the door to swings in both ways. Usually, you see the door knob or door lock on the end that swings.

As the other interior doors, many buy a hinged door for their bathroom door. You probably want to do so.  In this case, remember to calculate the space for your door to swing.

French Doors

Compared to hinged doors/swing doors, French doors swing on each side. The door leaves of French doors take up less space than hinged doors. While both require the same size of the opening.

In the meantime, French doors enhance the view by opening from the centre. French doors fit your taste, if you want to emphasize the beauty of your bathroom.

Pocket Doors

Pocket doors are kind of a trendy style of the bathroom doors. Actually, the pocket doors have been with us for numerous years. But they have gained their popularity recently due to their good performance in space-saving. Because pocket doors do not swing open. Instead, they hide into the wall when you slide them open. This definitely helps you save the floor space in the bathroom. Then you have more space for the other functions. The space-saving feature is amazing when you have small bathroom in particular.

Sliding Doors

As well as pocket doors, sliding doors are appealing due to their space-saving feature. They can save the space for the floor of your bathroom. But unlike pocket doors, sliding doors usually require a large opening. Therefore, sliding doors fit your need for more space, when you’ve got a big opening or plan to make one.

You might find bifold doors common in today’s interior designs. Especially for the patios and sunrooms as divides from the living rooms. The structure of bifold doors generally consists of the following parts. A track, several door leaves, and a set of hinges accordingly. The hinges connect the door leaves from on to another. And the track hangs from the top is for the door leaves to open and close.

Similarly, the sliding doors also work with a track. But bifold doors allows more space at the entrance. While sliding doors offer only a part of the opening accessible at a time. Both of sliding doors and bifold doors require a large opening though.

Meanwhile, Bifold doors take up more space on the floor than sliding and pocket doors. Because the bifold door leaves need the space to fold. Leave some space for the door leaves if you adopt bifold doors for your bathroom.
