Top Three Shopping Tipsaccordion closet doors

Accordion closet doors get their name because of the panels that fold.   These doors have panels that are long and are connected by a strip that is flexible.  The strip is able to constrict and stretch which allows the door to fold.   Accordion doors are a great space-saving option but they are a wonderful addition to any home.  Here are three tips that you should keep in mind as you start shopping for your new closet door.

Uses of Accordion Doors

Accordion doors are a great choice for a closet door.  They do not consume much space and there is no laborious installation required.  These doors are able to screen off the clutter and storage of boom, clothes or pantry closets.  If you want to show off the contents of the closet then you can opt for a clear plastic accordion door which will showcase your storage closet and allow light to shine through.  There are so many options and styles to choose from, you are sure to find a door that will work for your particular taste and home.

Conveniences of Accordion Doors

Accordion closet doors can be made from different materials such as vinyl, wood, plastic, and even glass.  They come in many different colors and have lots of features to choose from.  The installation is simple and there is no specific hardware required.  These doors are also very easy to operate.  There is usually a magnetic contact that is used for the closing mechanism.  Therefore, you don’t have to worry about the door slamming shut.   Since the closing of the door is noiseless, the room is able to maintain soothing ambiance.

Saving Space

Accordion closet doors fold into themselves and the width of the panels is fairly small.  Therefore, they have very little projection beyond the opening for the closet.   By not needing the same amount of clear floor space that a swinging door does, you are able to use the extra space around the closet to place furniture or whatever else you want to place there.   So if you are looking to save space, you can feel confident that an accordion closet door will likely not cause any problems with obstruction when they are fully open.

Accordion Closet Doors vs Sliding Doors – What Are The Differences?

If you are in the process of purchasing new doors you might be having a difficult time deciding between sliding and accordion closet doors. Both types of closet doors are visually appealing and they both offer  many benefits, but they are also different in many ways.

To make the best decision on the type of door that is right for you, it can help to know what the differences are between the two styles of doors.

This guide is designed to walk you through some of the important things that are different between the two types of doors so that you can decide on a door which is perfect for your space and get started with the shopping process. Your new closet doors can be purchased and installed in little to no time so that you will be able to hide all your things behind that perfect door. Reviewing your many options is easy, so here we go.

Opened Doors

One of the first things that you should investigate is what the difference is when the doors are open. The accordion doors will protrude some from the wall when they are open and allow you to see nearly every inch of your belongings in the closet space. These doors will not take up nearly as much space as a hinged closet door would, but this is still floor space that you need to leave cleared so that there is no interference when you are opening the closet.

Sliding doors have a single fixed panel which prevents the space from being completely accessed without climbing behind the panel. The biggest benefit to sliding closet doors is the fact that they are compact and do not take up additional floor space. You will not be able to see your full closet contents at one time with sliding doors, so you will want to keep this in mind if you want the closet to be opened for full viewing.

Moving Parts

Accordion doors have many more moving parts than a sliding door does, nearly twice as many. This means that you run nearly double the chance of a part such as a hinge or door pull, giving you problems over time with the accordion doors. However, the price of these doors is such that repairing a damaged part, or even replacing the full door, would not result in the need for a major amount of cash.

No matter which style of closet door you choose, you will want to make sure that you are performing all regular maintenance that is required such as periodic oiling of hinges or track mechanisms and tightening screws which may have worked loose. This will help to ensure that your doors last you for many years to come. After all, you want to get your money’s worth out of the new doors that you invest in and should be considered as such rather than as just a purchase.

Personal Preference

Unless you have a concern with space in your home, your decision is likely going to be a result of personal preference. Everyone has a slightly different idea of the styles they like when it comes to anything that you may purchase in your daily life, and with closet doors there are many options to consider prior to buying them. You want to make sure that it looks appealing to you while serving its intended purpose, however not breaking the bank. Does your taste run toward hard wood with basically lighter colors or other material that might be reflective or have a darker richness to it?

You will have many more options when it comes to sliding doors and the materials that they are made from. You can get full glass sliding doors, wooden sliding doors, combination sliding doors, and the list goes on. With accordion doors, your material options and ability to personalize are slightly less, but you are sure to achieve the kind of look you find appealing that will also provide you will the full view of the contents of your closet you desire.

Accordion Folding Doors

Accordion folding doors are very stylish and versatile and are often used in both commercial and residential décor as a means to save space and serve as dividers. They are named accordion doors because they operate the same way an accordion does; pleated folds expand and contract, lengthening or shortening as they are pushed or pulled. They remain in line with the doorframe, which makes them a great space-saving alternative to hinged doors, which need floor space to be able to swing out. Accordion-style doors can come in a variety of materials and finishes, allowing them to be tailored to fit almost any design style. Accordion folding doors offer the convenience associated with pocket doors, without the requirement of hollowing out the wall for the door to slide into, saving on expensive construction costs. Accordion folding doors often consist of long panels connected with a flexible strip that allows the door to fold in on itself. These doors can be a great addition to your home, particularly in rooms where there is a tight fit, and having a hinged door might remove some of the usable space. Accordion doors can also be used to divide larger spaces into smaller, more functional ones, so their uses aren’t limited to doorways.
