Creative Door Ideas??
I just moved into a loft and do not have a door to my room, so I was looking for ideas on how to install some sort of door. However, the issue is that the doorway area does not have flat walls so that I can add a prehung door, its got corners (see link to pictures). Any ideas on how I can setup some kind of door? Thanks in advance!

Rental? How's the landlord going to feel about you building something?

+1... How is that even considered a bedroom without a door? If the walls lineup, you could still install a door if the landlord lets you, you would just have to get creative with the trim mouldings. If it is a rental and you can't make alterations, you are probably stuck with some kind of divider or curtain that would be temporary... Or maybe you could mount a door on wheels, lol

Yes it's a rental, however the landlord is allowing me to make any modifications I want, including adding a door.

modify a sliding closet door to work for ya
sorta like a pocket door...
or maybe a bifold door?

if it were me, i would have to square it up then install a door
im not a pro but i dont see how you could install a door diagonally
