Types of Home Doors

Having a beautiful interior door is a great way to brighten up your home. There is a wide variety of door designs and ideas online.

SGHomeNeeds provides a list of contractors for the different kinds of doors. There are 6 basic types of doors that you should choose from:

  • Swing doors
  • sliding doors
  • bi-fold doors
  • dutch doors
  • pivot doors
  • french doors

Swing doors, as its name implies, are mounted on hinges on one end of the door. They are the most traditional and common type of door.

French doors are hinged doors that are installed on both sides of the opening. Doors swing either outwards or inwards towards each other and meet in the middle. Since French doors are larger, they give the illusion of a bigger room.

Bi-fold doors are hinged doors that can be folded and stacked neatly together. They require less clearance space and are suitable for tighter areas like closets and laundry rooms.

Dutch doors are hinged doors that are divided horizontally in half. Hence it is possible to open the top half while having the bottom half closed. This type of door is useful when keeping an eye on your children/pets without having to let them out of your sight.

Pivot doors are doors that open/close around hinges on the top and bottom of the door, instead of the traditional style of having them on one end. This type of door does not have any handles and is predominantly seen in modern minimalist interior design.

Sliding doors move by sliding on tracks along the floor that are usually parallel to the wall. Sliding doors are perfect for small, confined spaces as it can “disappear” into the wall when opened.
