In my new house, there's sort of a central hallway in the Master suite. As you enter the hall, the washer and dryer are straight ahead, with the master BR to one side and the master closet the other way. I want a door to close this hallway off from the rest of the house, but it's hard to put in a regular door. If it swings inward, it will either block entrance to the BR or the closet. If it swings out, it sticks out into the dining room.
My solution to this is a pair of swinging doors. I can't find anything that is full length, but just little cafe or saloon doors. Is there any reason why I can't just mount narrow (18") doors so that they swing in either direction, and self-close? I've never seen doors like that. I wonder if its a code issue? There's no need to lock or even secure the doors, and I'd probably find a way to hold them open much of the time. I mostly want to screen the washer/dryer from the rest of the house. Anyone seen anything like this?
