Some Tips on Solid Wood Pocket Doors

Pocket doors, so named because they comprise doors that slide into pockets within the wall, are a good choice for rooms where there isn't a lot of space for swing-out doors.

They can be made of a few different materials, but choosing solid wood pocket doors is a great way to lend a room an eye-catching look. Some reasons why you  might choose solid wood pocket doors include:

  • the ability to close off or open up a room whenever needed
  • more wall space for decorating or furniture
  • convenience

These are just some of the benefits, but you may want solid wood pocket doors just because you like the look and that's okay. There are no right or wrong reasons to choose these doors for your home.

What Wood

If you're specifically choosing solid wood for your pocket doors, you might be wondering what kind of wood is available. The answer is, nearly any wood you might want or need. That means that solid wood pocket doors are made in every color of wood from pale beech and Douglas fir to dark mahogany and walnut. And of course, if you buy a lighter-colored door, you always have the option to stain it to any hue you like.

Choose a classic glossy finish or go more worn and rustic—it's up to you. In addition, if you want solid wood pocket doors more for the sturdiness and reliability of the wood than the look of wood grain, then the only limit for color is your imagination.

Hardware

Solid wood pocket doors, like all solid pocket doors, can be a bit more challenging to hang and install because of their heaviness. However, they're really a must if you're installing pocket doors. You might consider hollow core doors because they're lighter and thus, easier to hang, but that same lightness means that your hardware will eventually start pulling out of the door.

Moreover, because the door is heavier, that means that you'll need to upgrade from the standard hardware that usually comes with pocket doors. Those standard rollers will work temporarily, but you're better off just installing heavy-duty ball-bearing rollers from the beginning. Those will stand up to pressure a lot more and a lot longer than the standard rollers. Finally, make sure to install quality pulls on the doors as well.

Accessibility Actually

Pocket doors, including solid wood pocket doors, can be a great convenience in homes where there's a need for more accessibility. Whether you just want wider openings into a room or there's someone in your home who uses a wheelchair, pocket doors can be the solution. However, traditional pocket door pulls can actually be a challenge for some people with mobility issues.

For example, if there's someone in your home who has arthritis or something similar affecting hand mobility, they might have trouble with the traditional recessed pulls used in pocket doors. In this case, you might consider different hardware. There are recessed pulls that are ADA-compliant, for example. However, you can also install handles. This will mean that the doors won't disappear into the wall, as with traditional pulls, but the difference is really negligible.
