Forum Title: Accordion doors for Bedrooms?
Hi everyone, First time at this forum, looks like a great place that includes many of the things I DIY all the time. Looking for some advice on bedroom doors. I own an old (1890) house that we've been renovating off and on for about 14 years now. We're looking to sell it and in fact have a realtor coming to look at it soon. One thing that I began to question was that we used Accordion doors for the 3 upstairs bedrooms. They work great for us as they save space, they were cheap (we have an EXTREMELY limited budget) and the look fine also. HOWEVER, I wondered if this will cause any issues selling the house? I know it may cause some concern over people preferences but I'm more concerned with the home inspectors and banks? Anyone have any knowledge on whether or not these types of doors are ok for bedrooms?

Suppose you replace the 2x4 with a 2x6?

I don't know if it will affect home inspector or the bank[could be valued slightly less] but like Z I would look at it as something that would need to be changed out. I'd reconsider using a hinged door for the bed rm entrance. Hollow core doors aren't very expensive.

Thanks for the replies. I know they aren't ideal and some people may be turned off but the house is being listed as needing finishing touches, ie trim, some windows are original, etc. My concern was more if someone wants to buy and the home inspector or bank says that they don't count as bedrooms because the doors. The rooms also don't have their own heat source so I may need to add some heaters as well.
