Bathroom doors?

All right, I need suggestions. What did you do for a bathroom door? I donít want to just use a curtain but I know standard size doors wonít fit.

What did you use? Pictures would be helpful too.

Thanks!

I bought a vinyl accordion-style door. Fits 24"-36". Still looking at it in the package, haven't installed it yet. Cheapest, fastest solution I could think of, and I'll install it in a pinch.

When I get to that point, I'll first look at saloon doors (Amazon).

We used heavy duty drawer slides. The door is normally open so the slides are hidden.
Here its pictured open halfway.

That is a good idea! I really want to avoid the barn door trend but like the practicality of them vs pocket doors. *Saving this photo into my bus idea album

We don't currently have a bathroom door, the wall dimensions aren't right for it. Not an emergency or anything, but if I was going to do one, it would be the way you did it. Especially after today

I re-purposed closet bi-fold doors (easy find at Goodwill), removed hinges in the middle, added hinges on the outside to open like narrow double doors, added magnets to keep shut while in use or parking, added door knobs as well with an elastic band to keep close during driving.

drawer slides are a slick solution.... Could get a cleaner result if you mount the slides on the floor and the ceiling. basically a pocket door with out framing a pocket!

Box track hardware could work well too. might need a bottom mount fin on the floor to keep the door plumb. add some trim to hide the track and visible side gaps.
