Bifold doors make a brilliant alternative to the traditional French door, glass door, solid wood door, or sliding closet door. They’re becoming increasingly popular closet doors thanks to their chic style and space-saving functionality compared to an old door. An internal bifold door is made up of multiple leaves which fold back on themselves in order to open up an entire aperture. The doors are fitted to runners, and when opened, they slide and fold at the same time for seamless operation. This means that you don’t have to make as much space for the closet door to swing open as normal hinged door hardware.
So how do you install a bi fold door on laminate flooring? One of the advantages of choosing a bifold door is the easy installation. Most homeowners opt to install this type of interior door by themselves. A bifold interior door can be installed using a simple two-hole system. It’ll require drilling holes in your laminate floor and placing the tracking for the bifold door.
Bifold doors are usually used as a closet door, wardrobe door, internal door, and exterior door. With their versatility, bifold doors are also used as a bypass door, patio door, barn door, and garage door. Installation of a bifold door is the same as on any hardwood floor and wood floor surface. With a bifold door installation kit, you’ll find that all the hardware and screws you need are included. Bi fold closet doors are fairly easy to install. Homeowners should consider the fit of a bifold door and the effect it’ll have on their laminate flooring.
High-quality bifold closet doors also often have child-safe features to prevent little fingers from getting trapped between leaves when the doors are folded open. This makes bifold doors a smart option for families with young kids or adults with restricted mobility because they open and close incredibly easily.
Unlike your typical sliding door, a bifold closet door allows you to fold your wall away to provide you with more space. A bifold closet door can be opened as much or as little as you’d prefer for door opening. They provide far more flexibility to suit your lifestyle. When opened, bifolding doors take up hardly any space, which is perfect if you have a small area.
When you decide to install a bifold door, you’ll benefit from minimal maintenance. Each leaf comprises an exterior frame and a single pane of glass which makes it really easy to just wipe them down now and again to keep them clean. Bifolding doors are designed with longevity in mind.
With a wide variety of folding doors, you have a large range of colors and materials to choose from. You can choose from wood, aluminum, composite, and glass bifold materials.
