Closet Bi-Fold Doors
 
I recently dropped some good coin on some bi-fold closet doors. My rough opening was right on, but i have more of a reveal on the sides on the center than I want. I've tried to move them as much as I can, but obviously I'm still going to have to live with some reveal. Is there any sort of trim or something I can put up to make the reveal look a little more appealing.

Thanks

Set the middle gap(between the doors) to the correct size. Install the jamb molding sized to the gap. Usually a stop molding will do the trick. The width of the molding depends on how you set the door in the jamb. But 1" -1 1/2" will usually fit the bill.

Hi there,
I would set the doors with good margin in center and about 1" clearance
straight across the top. Then cover side spaces and top with 3/4" cove
moulding.
Looks very nice!

Agreed with the 1/4 round. Seems to be standard. I think it actually looks best when followed along the top to cover the track as well - mitered at the corners, of course.
