  Typical costs:
  • A single, solid hinged closet door can cost $20 -$100 for a no-frills interior door slab (no frame, hardware or holes cut for the hardware) or $40 -$150 for one pre-hung in a frame so it installs as a single unit. These are typically wood composite or similar materials with hollow construction. It can cost $200-$500 for a pre-hung solid wood door, and $500-$1,000 or more for high-end wood like walnut or mahogany. Installation can add $50-$300 or more, bringing total costs to $70-$450 for a basic door, and $250-$1,300 or more for a mid- to high-end interior door.
  • It can cost $50-$200 for plain or mirrored sliding closet doors in steel (less expensive) or aluminum, depending on size and style. Hardware is typically included and installation is relatively straightforward, but with installation the total cost can be $100-$300. Sliding closet doors in wood, with options like raised panels or multiple panes of frosted or patterned glass can cost $500-$2,000 or more, depending on size, style and materials. Installation can add $100-$1,000 or more, depending on location, bringing total costs to $600-$3,000 or more.
  • Bi-fold closet doors (two hinged panels that fold together, often hung in pairs, with two folding panels on each side of the opening) start at about $25-$150 for hollow core doors made of composite or plywood and veneer. It can cost $100-$500 or more for a set of solid wood bi-fold doors, depending on size and the type of wood; or $500-$1,000 or more for bi-fold doors with distinctive accents and high-quality wood like mahogany, cherry or walnut. Installation can bring total costs to $75-$250 for simple hollow core bi-fold doors, or $600-$1,500 or more for larger, high-end doors.
  • Bi-fold doors combined in sections (by multiples of two) are sometimes referred to as multi-fold doors, with up to six hinged panels folding to each side of a long closet opening. These generally require heavy-duty hardware and are custom orders that typically include installation. Costs for this type of multi-fold doors will vary, and can easily be double or triple the cost of high-end bi-fold doors.
  • Sometimes also called multifold doors, accordion closet doors (with multiple small folding sections that slide sideways) cost $25-$200 for basic accordion doors (typically about 30"-36" wide and made of vinyl laminate or Plexiglas) at home improvement centers like Home Depot[1] or Lowe's[2] . Installation is relatively easy and can be done by a handyman or contractor for $50-$150 or more. Sturdier accordion closet doors in a higher grade of laminate can cost $200-$1,000, or $500-$2,500 or more with hardwood veneer. The Woodfold Series 220 Accordion Door[3] with a mahogany laminate finish for a 66"x80" opening costs about $440-$480 at FirstChoiceProducts.com[4] . Installation is relatively easy, and could be done by a handyman or contractor for $100-$300 or more depending on local rates and door size and weight.
  • A pocket door that slides into the wall when not in use can cost about $400-$1,000 (labor and materials) in new construction or if the wall is already open during remodeling; or $1,000-$3,500 or more if the wall must be torn open in an existing house. A barn-style door that slides on a track along the edge of the wall can cost $200-$1,000 with do-it-yourself installation, or $300-$1,300 or more for labor and materials if installed by a handyman or contractor.

Discounts:
  • Do-it-yourself installation is possible with some closet doors. ThisOldHouse.com provides instructions for installing bi-fold doors[5] , estimating that this project takes 4-6 hours and costs $200-$750, and is relatively easy unless the doors are heavy or the existing opening isn't square. AskTheBuilder.com lists sizing, specification and installation tips for mirrored sliding doors[6] and HGTV has instructions for installing sliding closet doors[7] .
Shopping for a closet door:
  • Closet doors should match the room door but also be functional for the space; sliding doors won't bump nearby furniture, but bi-fold doors can make it easier to access everything inside the closet. DoorAndWindow.com lists tips for selecting new closet doors.
  • Closet doors are available at local lumber yards; home improvement centers like Home Depot[8] or Lowe's[9] ; or search for a local door and window dealer through the American Window and Door Institute[10] .
  • If hiring an installer, verify that the company is properly insured, bonded and licensed[11] ; ask for and check references, and look for any complaints filed with the Better Business Bureau[12] .
