    Bifold, or folding, doors refer to any door that folds, either inward or outward, to open. Using a track and pivot bracket, the doors glide smoothly when opened. This means bifold interior doors take up very little space and make it easy to give a space a wide opening, even if there is little surrounding space for the door to open. A two-door bifold consists of two hinged panels, and a four-door bifold is used for larger openings 4 to 8 feet wide and includes two 2-door bifolds that part to the left and right leaving the center wide open.

    Materials for Bifold Interior Doors

    There are many materials available for bifold interior doors, including wood, MDF, and molded panels. Bifold interior doors are also available with many kinds of inserts, including decorative glass, mirrors, and louvers.

    One of the most popular woods is oak, especially red oak. This type of wood is especially popular due to its wide availability, and this also makes it one of the more affordable options. Pine is another choice commonly used for bifold interior doors. Like red oak, pine is a fairly inexpensive choice, and pine is also one of the more customizable types of wood. Birch is also a popular wood species for bifold interior doors due to its straight grain and workability.
