Single Swing Door Vs Double Swinging Doors
Which is better a single swing door or double swinging doors?  Both doors will accomplish the same goal but the atheistic is different.  Think about the overall door opening width, the swing of the door(s), and the look you are trying to achieve.  If the door opening is narrow a single swing door maybe work better in your opening vs double doors.  Single doors will take up more space as they swing open.  For example, a single swing door for a 32” door opening will measure approximately 31-1/2” wide, vs double doors for a 32” door opening will measure around 15-1/2” wide.  (These measurements are approximate- when building swinging doors, we build according to your door opening size and hardware selected) So the difference between the width of the swing is something to consider.  Single swinging door hardware options are more limited than double swinging doors. Most people prefer double swinging doors, these doors will swing back and forth, then return to the center closed position.
