I have a sitting room, next to the master bedroom.
In fact they are the same large room. Just the bedroom is cathedral
while the sitting room part is 8'.
I came across some web pages and found some nice doors that can
probably divide my two rooms. I saved the images and placed them at:
I googled search all the possible words I can think of: bifold doors,
French doors, etc, and can not find these doors. Before I go to HomeDepot or
Lowes to special order them, I was wondering if anyone on the net who can
to locate any stores or lumber yards that sell this kind of doors? And how
do you call
I want the total opening to be 8' to 10', consisting of 4 doors. Those 2
at both ends are closed except in special situations, and 2 middle doors are
most of the time.
Thanks for any tips.
8' should work for me, even though 10' might look better. Any idea where
one can find that kind of door without special order? I really want to
spending thousands for a partition door.
I googled "interior four panel French Door", and have not found any place
that carry that kind od door. If you can provide additional information to
narrow my search, I'll be really grateful.
In my experience, standard interior French doors are usually no wider
than 6' nor taller than 6'8"; though I have seen some 8' wide exterior
types that wouldn't be suitable as a room divider. Anything else is
going to be a custom made job. That's the trouble with those decorating
magazines and sites, they don't have to worry about the budget you or I

You might look into Shoji style or sliding panel doors, they might do
the trick for you.
And you would be making a costly mistake. The big box stores
may be cheaper on some things, but special orders will cost
you way more than a serious door supplier (where do you think
Lowes or HD gets theirs?). Look in your yellow pages for a
door mill and order them directly. You will be more likely to
get what you ordered, and it will be MUCH less than the borgs.
Except for certain doors that Lowes and HD order by the
thousands, I buy all my doors from a door mill and get them
for less than HD or Lowes can get them for me. Plus, the
selection is much greater.
The only caveat is that you must know how to order doors. The
door mill will ask you questions like; type and color of
hinge, 3 or 4 hinges per door, jamb type and thickness, bored
or unbored, threshold, solid or laminated jambs, paint grade
or stain grade, how many lites, 1-3/8" or 1-3/4", trimmed or
untrimmed, what trim, what keepers for the stationary doors,
etc. Be prepared for them.
This really helps! I did not know you can order a single customized
doors from special stores cheaper than a big box store, as I got only
familiar with HomeDepot and Lowes - I spent over $10K at HD and Lowes
to finish my basement as they have everything I have, and got to know
I guess I need to educate myself before order a customized door from
those door mills.
That will make the bedroom look like office. The place I used to work had
of partition door to separate a big meeting room.
Thanks for the tips though. I did not know that was called Accordian door
