I'm installing double interior doors for the master bedroom. Unlike many double door installations where one of the doors is locked into place with a flush bolt, these doors will each have a ball catch at the top. This will allow each door to be opened individually or both at the same time. I'm not concerned with having these doors lock.
The problem is that when you try to open both doors at the same time, the corner of the edges get slightly closer and the doors can jam into each other. I have considered the following possible solutions but I'm not sure what would be a good balance of practicality and esthetics:
- Leave the doors as is and get in the habit of opening the doors one at a time
- Increase the gap between the doors
- Add a radius to the inside corners
Even though I can see myself getting used to opening one door at a time, anyone unfamiliar with this quirk could make the doors jam into each other. I think that a larger gap will compromise privacy and make it look like an improper installation. I'm concerned a corner radius might make the gap between the doors look larger than it is or just not look right either.
Are there any other options I have not considered? What would you do?
