Pocket door ideas needed
Shore grandmom on Jun 14, 2018I wish I had pocket doors! A barn door just hangs in the way. They a good option if you can't have pocket doors. You need wider walls and no electric, duct work or plumbing in the way. I think you should dress up what you have and don't remove them for a fad that may not last.Helpful Reply
Nancy Turner on Jun 14, 2018I lived in a rent house that had a couple of pocket doors. They slid them all the way in and put matched trim all the way around the inside of the door frames to hide the openings. From there you could use whatever you want to cover the doorways. It was a turn of the century home and they didn't want the pocket door damaged.Helpful Reply
Barb Adams on Jun 14, 2018All you need is a barn door track/hardware kit (Menards usually has some good prices: https://www.menards.com/main/doors-windows-millwork/interior-doors/interior-sliding-barn-doors/c-1476979999457.htm).

Now just paint and/or trim out your pocket door and hang. Tip: it is easier to install the center hanger of your barn door rail first and then level it. Be sure the rail is high enough that the door will slide and that the rail hangers go into wood and not drywall (you may need to install a 1x6 the length of your rail to achieve that. Painted your wall color, you will hardly see it. Best of LuckHelpful Reply
Lina Splichal on Jun 14, 2018If you decide to pull your pocket doors out of the wall and convert them to sliding barn style doors you can close up the pocket opening with a 2x4 or wallboard cut to size.Helpful Reply
