Question DetailsAsked on 3/18/2012

We are purchasing a home from an elderly couple who installed ADA doors. How can we modify them to be standard without reframing the door?

The master bath door is ADA handicap accessible and I was wondering if something can be done to modify the door to take up less room but don't want to reframe the door and drywall. Was wondering if the door could be made into double doors? Just trying to get ideas.

Do you have the same question? Follow this Question

I suppose you could go with swinging double doors, but that would be pretty funny looking for a bathroom and has privacy detriments. Ditto for a custom-built bifold door.

For resale value, I would not do anything weird - I would just stay with the slightly wider door and live with the few inches of lost wall space where it sits while open. Remember, for resale purposes having an ADA accessible door could be a plus down the road.
