Skyangel23 Thanks for the responses. Renovator8, thank you so much for the very clear descriptions of how double doors work. I did not think about those issues at all. So, are these issues the same for all double doors, even those that don’t require locking? I think you’ve talked us out of doing it for the bedroom, but I wanted to do this for the pantry also, which would be french doors that swing outward. If they don’t need to be locked and are not for a living space, would these same issues still apply? Zone4newby, another great point about the light switches. That would really annoy me! And the laundry! Bcool, how do you like living with the double doors? Do you open both or only one usually? Are light switches and laundry a pain? Annie Deighnaugh, good point of light control. Noise I am not really worried about. I am only sleeping when everyone else is. 🙂 But I do like a dark room. Whether we did one door or two, if we did a mirrored glass I imagine light would still come through, right? I will have to think about that. Maggiepie11, I love that door! Thanks for posting it. Although the concerns about light control especially resonate with me when considering a door with glass. I do agree now that french doors are not the best option. With the 32″ door, I can try the glass door, and if I don’t like it, move it to a different location. Thank you everyone for the excellent advice. So much better than trying to decide on my own. Maybe french doors to the entrance to the master bathroom instead? With antique mirrored glass, of course! 😉

Skyangel23 Hi Red_Lover, Thank you for the picture. Your perspective helped us decide not to do the double doors on the master. I would really like a picture of the master bathroom doors, if you don’t mind. cfvh, Thanks for the info. We will look into those locking/closing mechanisms. AnnieDeighnaugh, We have a family room also that is a ways from the living room, so I don’t think noise would be too much of a problem. Plus we sleep with fans. But I think there are enough other cons to prevent us from doing this with the master doors. bpathome, Thanks for the picture and detailed descriptions. I think french doors in the living room and dining room sound lovely. I couldn’t see the “security system”, but I bet it works great. 🙂 bcool, Thanks for adding your positive experience. I think we will do them with the master bathroom, which would also remain open most of the time except when in use. We wouldn’t really need to lock those doors, and if we really needed someone to stay out, we could lock the master bedroom door.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo renovator8 The swing edge of a door must be beveled and that is covered by the door stop in a single leaf door. In a pair of doors the bel causes a gap between the doors that will allow someone to see into the room as well as letting in light and sound. To prevent this problem an vertical trim called an astragal is added to the edge of one of the doors and that requires the doors to be closed in sequence, one then the other. So in addition to the expense of the hardware and unsightly top and bottom latch plates, only one of the doors can be opened by itself and one must be closed before the other. These doors are usually used at an inner doorway rather than at the entrance to a suite. 32″ is much too narrow but the advantage is that it will be easier to replace the pair of doors with a single door later.
