We have an old cat that gets antsy if the door is closed so we live open a crack for him to sneak in and out of .

This. My door is open just a crack for my kitty. Otherwise it’d be all the way closed.

Blackout curtains, too. They're not enough so I actually have this black plastic sheet over both bedroom windows.

Closed and locked so I can hear the person that’s going to murder me before it happens.

Wouldn't this mean you can't hear them until they're right outside your door?

Right. And when they are right inside my door I’ll introduce them to Mr. Nine

Closed.  I have a kid.  I always slept with it closed when it was just my wife and I as well except for very hot nights in the summer for better air flow.  I'm not exactly worried about home intruders, but I don't have thick bedroom doors so I can easily hear someone walking downstairs when I have company regardless.

Yes I do as it makes it easier for Inuk to walk in and out of my room.

When I was in my parents basement I would so my cat could freely walk in and out of my room since he would sleep with me most nights.

Now that I am in an apartment with a co-worker without my cat I keep it closed

Yes I have cats and they will scratch at the door if it’s closed. It’s just me and my gf, and the door doesn’t let in anymore light so it doesn’t bother me

Always opened.  In my head I think it makes it safer if there was a fire, I would hear alarms or smell smoke faster in the event of an emergency.  The doors in my house are all new but they aren't going to stop an intruder or anything.

The simple act of closing your bedroom door before going to sleep each night could be the major difference between life and death in a house fire. While it's a more commonly known fact that a closed door could stave off smoke and heat from a fire, keeping your door closed while sleeping could reportedly ward off flames for an additional half hour.

I literally remember being taught fire safety in elementary school and learning that keeping a door closed is waaaaaay safer in a fire. You’re doing it wrong.

I've had the door closed for A/C reasons with my cat inside. He wakes me up to get out. I let him out and close the door again. Five seconds later he's clawing and screaming like Jason Vorhees is coming to get back in...all at like 4 AM.

Cats don’t give a shit about your sleep. Little fuckers just want doors open just because.

All of that makes plenty of sense but I guess because I have 2 young kids in the house, I feel like I need to be able to hear better if a smoke alarm starts going off.  Luckily my house is no where close to being a death trap like some high up apartment or anything.  Just a small 2 story house with windows in every room except the bathroom.

One of our 4 cats in particular likes to sleep on the bed with us... if we close the door with her outside the room, she will literally cry for the entire night. She doesn't get tired, she doesn't get bored and do something else, she just sits there and cries until the door is eventually opened--whether that's in the middle of the night, or in the morning when we get up, there's crying until that door is opened. 

 

And after we open the door, whenever that may be, she comes flying into the room and yells at us for like the next 5 minutes. Like, it's not enough we locked her out, she has to let us know that wasn't ok, and to not let it happen again.

Yuup only reason we leave it slightly open most of the time. Also once she's done yelling, she plops herself on one of our hips and we cannot move. Both of our daughters sleep with their doors closed.
