If you happen to have a bi-fold door that you’d like to re-purpose, learn this fantastic trick for increasing space in a tight spot! Or, if you happen to have a tiny closet, office or water closet, learn how to expand that area with minimal effort . . .
I feel claustrophobic in what I like to call a potty closet (tiny room for your toilet) and exposed in an open bathroom plan so when I designed our floor plan I put the toilet in a corner. It took me a few years to figure out exactly what I wanted to do. Then I came across some beautiful solid wood bi-fold closet doors.
Inspiration hit me!
After a quick refinish, my DH and I used cafe door hardware to mount them. I love it, and my dear husband loves them. Easy weekend project. We like it so much, we are replicating the same idea to create a partial privacy wall for my older daughter, who shares a room with her 3 much younger sisters.

what a phenomenal idea! my creative juices are flowing! we have a spiral stair case leading to a loft we have been trying to figure out how to “cut off” from the rest of our great room.
we were considering bamboo fencing among other things but i think a version of what you have done here may be a much better option.
thank you! time to start scouring garage sales for old doors…or maybe i’ll make some from scratch.
awsome idea,thanks for sharing.
we too have a teeny bathroom in the kitchen. all the doors we priced were ridiculous. so we ordered cheap unfinished bifold door.
i found this great door mural that my husband then wallpapered onto it. we have a knob that blends in to the mural. it is a mural of the iconic british phone booths.
so when we say me need to make a call…
Sweet idea! Cute and clever!
I like the mural of the English phone booth. My husband might not object to that for a standing trifold divider I want to make for our vacation home.
