    Wow, floating doors could mean several things. In regards to these doors shown in this picture they appear to float as they do not have the traditional track system where they slide in front of one another, yet there are several panels. This configuration allows a person to open the doors fully and tuck them away nicely on each side opening, as opposed to having a large door in the way on each side of an opening while they are fully opened.

    Fantastic job, Modern Craft Construction!! Did you use 2x4's and join them together for the continuous line, or biscuit them? just wondering, it's truly beautiful and sleek.

    The actual shelves are fashioned by sandwiching a 1/2 layer of plywood between two layers of 3/4 thick MDF. We left a few spaces open in the 1/2 plywood to allow room for shelf to slide over the 1/2 metal brackets protruding from the wall. Once the shelves were applied onto the metal brackets we applied a piece of solid stock wood at the face of the shelf to hide the multiple layers of plywood.

    These doors have been a big hit. They are actually flat panel masonite doors that I trimmed out to look like shaker doors. After they were completed I ordered the beveled mirror inserts and glued them in place using mirror adhesive. The door hardware was found at a dallas based architecural resale shop. Thanks so much much for your inquiry, If you have any further questions I would be happy answer to help you out.

    Did you insert the mirror where you trimmed for the shaker look?

    Hey there, We incorporated the electrical, data, and coax into the wall prior to installing the new drywall. I designed the mill-work at the beginning of the project which allowed me to place all my wiring where I would need in the future. If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask. Have a great day !!!!

    We sell custom upholstered office chairs. It's not the same chair but you can use any fabric you would like.
  • Gina Payne

    What type of lighting is provided over the desk area? It looks like some puck lighting was used in the lower shelf? Does this area have a window that is providing natural light- or is there another light source?

    We actually custom built these doors for this specific job. I am confident you could find a local craftsman to replicate these doors in your specific size and species. I do know the Masonite door company has recently started building a door blank that can be used to replicate this look as well but I believe it only comes in a paint grade finish. Please do not hesitate to write should you have any further questions. Have a great day!!

    Yes you are correct. We created pockets to the depth of the exact thickness of the remaining edge on the mirror after they were beveled and then glued the glass in place with mirror mastic. These doors have performed beautifully for over three years at this point. We attached the hinges to the jamb with 3" screws which penetrated the jamb and are secured into the stud behind the jamb. These are solid core door and are quite heavy so we took every precaution necessary to ensure they will be swinging for years to come.

  • pejisan

    Would they need to be solid core to hold the mirrors? If not that could help lighten the load on those hinges and screws?

    I LOVE those doors too!!!!

    These bifold doors do not appear to be on any type of runner. If this is the case, are traditional door hinges strong enough to hold the weight of the two mirrored doors?

    This desk chair was actually an awesome thrift store find!! My client bought it for less than twenty dollars at a local thrift store and had it recovered here in Dallas. Unfortunately we do not know the name of the chair or the style of fabric as it was found in the clearance rack at the fabric store.
  • Toni leslie
    I have 2 chairs like the desk chair. My parents bought them with a club table in 1980. I m in the process of having them refurbished. Great fabric by the way.

    Unfortunately that is something I would have to see in order to formulate a game plan. These doors were custom built for this application and I am sure you could find a local craftsman to replicate this look for you. I know you could make this bi-fold system work with the dimensions you specified but it would have to hinge at both jamb legs. Please let me know if you have any further questions.
  • asterisk55
    thank you I will look into that

    These doors are called a twin door - Bi fold setup and actually use traditional hinges found on any common door jamb. These doors latch closed with a ball catch located at the top of each door... Please do not hesitate to write should you have any further questions,
  • keggy25
    Can you tell me the size of the bi fold doors? And the hinges where you got them and doors. I have bi fold to my laundry and I want them in my office to a closet to give me that wall back. But I haven't been able to find anything that looks like this. Or could I get them through you? Will you let me know if and or when you reply so I don't miss. I've been stalled for four months on this project. Thanks so much. I was going to have to have made but was CRAZY expensive. I DISLIKE my laundry doors with a PASSION. thanks. Beautiful work. Love the mirrors. Really gives the space a unique designed look without detracting from the room and opens up the area.

    Hello there, I built this room out from the studs so I was able to reinforce the inner walls and add angle iron strips prior to sheetrock. Once the drywall was installed I simply cut slots on the end of each shelf and slid them right over the angle iron supports. If this application will not work for your particular install , IKEA sells floating shelf kits that you can trim to length. If you have any further questions I will be happy to further explain. Thanks Wiley G.

    Hello - we actually built these doors by starting with a flat panel, solid core door and then applied the styles to give it the shaker door. The mirrors were then applied into the recess on the shaker section. At this time, The company Masonite makes this door that can be ordered from your local home depot. It is simply a shaker style panel door. Once installed you can have your glass guy measure and fabricate the mirrors. I hope this was helpful...

    Thanks

    Hello - your observation is correct. These doors are called a twin by fold application using a ball catch as the mechanism to keep them closed. These are solid core doors and are quite heavy. We had them built using larger heavy duty hindges and the doors have performed beautifully. There are three hindges per door. Have a wonderful day!!

    Hey there - I actually added this room onto my clients master bedroom. The office is approximately 3'6" deep x 7' long . The photos do not show it but yes there is a tall skinny window on the right side of the office to allow some natural light into the space. My client works from home and uses the space every day... The proportions work great!!

    Wow that is a loaded question depending on the style of the space and existing colors in the space. I would say one cant go wrong with a great turquoise blue or lime green.

Tailorly, Professional Home Organizing added this to Before You Unpack From a Move, Ask Yourself These 5 QuestionsJun 11, 2017

Working from home. What items do you need to complete your work? For example, do you need books, papers, calculators? And in what environment would you want to complete your work? Would you prefer to be close to the TV, next to the kitchen, near a window? If you work from home on a daily basis, it may be most efficient to set up a dedicated, ergonomically appropriate area, ensuring you have enough space to spread out your work and keep frequently used items on hand. If you do not have space for a home office and your dining table is the only option, you may want to allocate space in your dining room buffet, or in a portable storage container, for office supplies. That way, you can clear your dining table once work is complete.

Laura Gaskill added this to Decorate With Intention: Get Your Home Office RightSep 15, 2012

Make a closet office more than an afterthought. If your only available office space is in a spare closet, that doesn't mean it has to feel like second best. Specifics to keep in mind when converting a closet into an office:• Lighting is key. Add recessed lighting in the ceiling if possible, plus one or two desk lamps.• If you can't find a desk that fits perfectly, have one built (or try a DIY project) to make the best use of the space.• Measure potential desk chairs before buying to be sure they will tuck under the desk enough to close the door(s).• Speaking of doors, try swapping out the standard-issue closet doors for French doors, pocket doors or even crisp curtains.

"Dallas residents are trending towards smaller, more functional spaces; the days of the McMansion are coming to an end, and many clients are asking for space-cautious design," says Wiley Gilliam, president of Modern Craft Construction."In this example, my client desperately needed an office in her home," says Gilliam. "The solution was to add a small space in her master bedroom that could be closed off to look like a closet."
