Different Types Of Bathroom Doors
There are several different types of bathroom doors that homeowners can choose according their needs. And here are some of them. For older homes or those with rustic details, solid wooden doors might be the perfect complement to the bathroom. A solid wooden door is more dramatic, calling attention to itself as a feature, and should only be used when it will complement wooden features of the bathroom. A wooden door usually feels heavier and may not work well with dark or small bathrooms. Instead of giving the room a sense of gravity and stateliness, it might instead actually make the room feel claustrophobic. Wooden doors tend to have interesting details, however, and are amenable to hanging hooks for towels or art to brighten the room. Also consider the finish to determine how that will affect cleaning and show wear. Often bathrooms are designed to be compact and a door swinging inward can make an already small space more awkward and frustrating. For spatially challenged bathrooms, one alternative is the sliding door. This style slides the door into the wall as you enter and exit.
It has the benefit of using the space most efficiently and alleviating the squeeze between the door and sink or toilet. Because the door must physically fit inside the wall between the bathroom and the outer hall, however, it tends to be built from thinner materials. The door may be made from composite materials so that it is light enough to slide easily. This in turn may not be as aesthetically pleasing and not possess as much presence as other doors; hanging towels, obviously, is not an option. These are, however, usually easier to clean.
