installing a double door in a 48" opening


Hi, i have an interior opening of about 47 1/8" with the frame, and 48 3/4" taking the frame out. There used to be 2 slider doors there. This would be a door going into our master bedroom. The guy that was doing work suggested a 48" double door for this opening, but i don't know. Is this a good spot for a double door or should i go with a big single? There is sheetrock on both sides.

Don't see why you would need a 48" door getting into a bedroom unless it's just for the look. You could just frame out for a 36" door in the current opening.

Hi Ron, that's what i finally realized. Our young remodeler had the bright idea of putting double doors in the existing frame. Don't think that would look too good. Thanks for your help.

You would need a minimum of 50" for a 48" door opening.
