Interior Swinging Doors

Swinging doors have been used for centuries, and they are still in style today. Swinging Café Doors is proud to offer a wide variety of swinging doors for your home or business. Swinging Café Doors is a small company specializing in full-length swinging doors, half-length swinging doors, double-swinging doors and swinging saloon doors. 


Our doors are made in the USA and are offered in a wide variety of unfinished, painted and stained wood options. You can customize the swinging doors to fit your current opening.

What Are Swinging Doors?

Swinging doors can be a single or a set of double doors on double-action hardware. This double-action hardware allows the doors to swing in either direction and self-return to the center. Swinging doors do not require a frame like traditional butt hinges. Installing a full-length interior swinging door is easy and can be completed with several simple tools.  


Wood swinging doors are meant for interior use but can be used in a wide variety of settings, including commercial and residential spaces. Swinging doors are just one of the many trending interior door styles. 


Some of the most common spaces for swinging doors are kitchens, pantries, closets, bathrooms, basements, bedrooms, pet gates, restaurants, commercial kitchens and bars. Once you have determined the perfect location for your swinging interior door, the next thing is to think about the design and style of the swinging door you prefer.  


Swinging doors are no longer boring and only look like a Wild West movie set. Today's swing doors come with modern elements like glass and traditional elements like raised panels, louvered, barn-style detailing or contemporary shaker panels. Because Swinging Café Doors offers over 80 designs of swinging doors, we will have a design that will be perfect for your space.

Applications for Interior Swinging Doors

Swinging door designs are a versatile solution that adds class, charm and functionality to spaces for various applications, including:

Swinging Kitchen Doors

Whether you are looking for restaurant swinging doors or residential swinging kitchen doors, we offer both with a wide selection of options. These doors can be single-swing doors or double-swing doors. The doors help to separate the space between the kitchen and dining room, providing privacy for the kitchen or bar.  


In commercial applications, doors are required between kitchens and dining rooms. Our doors are great for the separation of space. Plus, they will help with noise and smells.  


These doors will still allow ease of access between the two spaces. A simple push of the doors will allow them to operate. There's no need to open a doorknob or pull the doors toward you.

Pantry and Butler Doors

Swinging doors are an excellent option for pantry doors. These doors can be made to be full- or half-length. The door’s height is a customizable option on our website. With swinging doors as pantry doors, you can use a finger, elbow or hip to engage the doors to open when you have your hands full. The swinging doors will also automatically return to the closed position, so the pantry will not be visible.  


Most hardware has a hold-open feature, which allows the doors to be pushed and held open when needed. After returning from the grocery store, you can restock the pantry with ease.  

Swinging Closet Doors

Closet space is important to every home. Swinging closet doors will allow for more storage space in your closet. The double swinging doors can swing outside the closet and take up less space than a traditional single butt hinge door.  


Extra closet space can be utilized to organize your home better. Swinging closet doors are a great way to add an accent to your space. In addition, these doors can be painted to match the wall or to bring a bold new color for drawing extra attention.

Bathroom Swinging Doors

If you need more privacy in your bathroom, swinging bathroom doors can be the answer. These swing doors can be used to create a water closet or added to the master suite bathroom. The doors offer an easier installation than a traditional door and will require less spacing for the doors to swing and operate.  


Master bathroom doors are among our most popular applications for swinging saloon doors.

Glass Swinging Doors

Adding glass to our swinging door designs has been the hottest trend in the past few years. These swinging glass doors will allow you to create separation while having an overall open look. Swinging Café Doors offers a wide variety of clear plexiglass, frosted plexiglass, clear safety glass, frosted safety glass and decorative glass on request.  


French glass swinging doors will add an elegant modern design to your next project. These doors are an excellent option for separation while maintaining an open feel to the adjacent space. 

Baby and Pet Gates

Baby and pet gates can be stylish swinging doors for a more permanent application. These doors can be installed toward the bottom of a door frame to make a gate. The gate will help to separate the baby or pet from an insecure or dangerous location. 


These gates can be secured with a sliding bolt latch or ball latch. The gates can be made in several designs, and almost all of our swinging door designs can be installed as a gate. There is minimal clearance with most double-action hardware. 

French Doors

The beauty of French doors has made them a top designer choice for decades. Although sliding French doors can be hard to operate, swinging French doors are a practical option for your interior door openings. Modern French doors will have a single panel of glass and allow light to traffic through both spaces. 

Restaurant Swinging Doors

Double-swinging doors are very popular in restaurants. Swinging Café Doors offers a wide variety of door styles and sizes for restaurant doors. Most of all, our door designs have been used in residential applications. Our most popular door design for restaurants is the Maritime Porthole Door. 

Single-Swing Doors vs. Double-Swinging Doors

Which is better, a single-swing door or a double-swinging door? Both doors will accomplish the same goal, but the aesthetics are different.  


Think about the overall door opening width, the swing of the door and the look you are trying to achieve. If the door opening is narrow, a single-swing door may work better in your opening than a double door.  


Single doors will take up more space as they swing open. For example, a single swing door for a 32-inch door opening will measure approximately 31 ½ inches wide, while double doors for a 32-inch door opening will measure around 15 ½ inches wide.  


These measurements are approximate — when building swinging doors, we build according to your door opening size and the hardware you select. So, the difference between the width of the swing is something to consider.  


Additionally, single-swinging door hardware options are more limited than double-swinging doors. Most people prefer double-swinging doors because they will swing back and forth, then return to the center closed position.
