Thereof, what is the best way to paint closet doors?

Satin and eggshell finishes are slightly reflective, moisture-resistant and reasonably easy to clean. If your closet doors are in poor shape, or if you want them to fade into the background, consider a satin or eggshell paint. Semi-gloss and high-gloss paints are shiny, drawing the eye.

Also, what kind of paint do you use on a security door? Let it dry the recommended time. Paint your door with a gloss enamel paint in the color of your choice. (I used one can of paint and one can of primer to paint this door on both the inside and out.)

In respect to this, can bifold doors be painted?

Bifold doors offer a space-saving closure for closets, laundry rooms and pantries. Although you can paint bifold doors in position, it's much easier to apply the paint before you install them. If they are already in place, detach the doors from their tracks. Which color you paint the doors' edges is up to you.

Do you have to sand a door before painting?

If your door is in good shape, all it needs is a light sanding with sandpaper or a sanding sponge (180 or 220 grit). That will roughen the surface a little and allow the primer to adhere better. So be sure to check the label and buy sandpaper intended for paint. You may still get some clogging, but you'll get less.
