Hi gang, I just replaced a bi-fold closet door in my office with a pre-hung louvered closet door. I'm super-happy with the look and feel. If it looks horrible, you can blame A. Spruce because he was the one that gave me all the pointers a couple of months ago. Hahah...
In any case, I shimmed, levelled, and everything else that I believe I was supposed to do. All I needed to do to get the correct fitment was install a 2x4x81 on the left side up against the steel framing to give the door a bit more support. I filled the voids in and around the door frame to give it a bit more confident feel (or less cheap feel) when you shut the door.
So my question is, how abnormal would it be if I did NOT install trim around this door? Originally, the door was a bi-fold, and the frame around the opening was simply just 90 degree angles of drywall with edging. There was no frame around it; however, all the doors and window openings do have trim around it.
Now that I have a door in there, I am not sure if I should install trim, or if it would look just as good (or better) by edging off the drywall? Just looking for ideas.
Keep in mind that this is a South Florida house with reeks of 80s Modern design... which I do secretly like and kind of want to keep it that way. But, I have no design sense, so if this would look ridiculous, please tell me.
Only issue I see is that the door is framed close to the wall, so I would not be able to install full trim on the left side.
