Because our cupboards and other storage areas are often tucked away into unused areas of the home, it can be difficult to find a door that will fit them properly. Whilst bifolds tend to be the most popular choice, as they only require half of the opening distance as a traditional opening, many homeowners are hesitant because they are aware of the cost factor.
This has led many homeowners to consider making their own wooden bifold doors, as they figure that this will help them to save some money and that they will get panels with a perfect fit. Is it possible to make your own doors, however, and is this really going to be the best solution for your home? We aim to explore the pros and cons of making such a decision.
Yes, it is completely possible for you to make your own bifolds. Not only does this present you with a DIY project that your home will thank you for, it can help to ensure the quality of the materials used. If your cupboard is in a slightly awkward shape, it can help to ensure that you find panels that are a perfect fit and it can ensure that the timber matches other species used in the home for the most complementary match.
Whilst it is possible to make your own bifolds, this is not necessarily going to be the best decision for everyone. If you don’t have any experience with DIY projects or construction, you are probably going to be a little overwhelmed. You are also opening yourself up to all kinds of issues, such as the doors not working and your measurements being incorrect. There is also the risk that the panels will look amateur-ish and not professional in the slightest.
So, what is the solution? If you are confident in your abilities to construct some wooden bifold doors for your home, then by all means go for it. If you are a little worried about all of the things that could go wrong, however, you should look into hiring a professional. Fortunately, there are a number of high quality and affordable options open to you today.
