Bathroom doors are often overlooked when, in fact, they actually play a very important role in the room’s interior design and the ambiance created inside. Because this is a utilitarian space, the focus in mainly on functionality and everything that’s decorative occupies a secondary position. The door combines the two categories, its size and function allowing to be both functional and aesthetically pleasing or stimulating in some way. Below you can find a short description for a series of door types we find suitable for bathrooms.
Charming barn doors
Sliding barn doors can make any space feel welcoming and cozy and this includes the bathroom. They come in a variety of designs and can adapt to a variety of decors. A particularly wonderful idea is to use barn doors to separate a bedroom from its en-suite bathroom.
Space-saving pocket doors
Pocket doors are making a comeback and their defining characteristics makes them an ideal choice for bathrooms. Because they don’t swing open but rather slide into the wall when opened, pocket doors allow you to save floor space in the bathroom, making more room for other functional features.
Simple panel doors
This is the most commonly used type of interior doors and you can recognize a panel door by the square or rectangular patterns it features. They can range from a single large panel to several small ones. Their simplicity, popularity and versatility allows them to look natural in a lot of settings.
Classy French doors
French doors hang on hinges at each side of a door and they swing toward each other meeting at the center. They can be used in a lot of different settings and they can adapt to a variety of styles. Although they’re not very popular in bathrooms, they can become a focal point for this space allowing it to stand out.
Glass panel doors
This type of doors feature a piece of glass in place of a panel and this basically gives the door a window. Such a door can have one or multiple glass panels arranged in a pattern. This one features a series of 5 rectangular windows.
A single large glass panel can also be used in which case the door would feature a wooden frame and a glass core. The glass can be frosted to offer more privacy or the door can feature a curtain that covers the glass window.
