Easy Wall Mounted 'Pocket' Door Installation

Johnson Hardware 200WM half open with valance

I LOVE pocket doors. As a matter of fact, I wish ALL the doors in my house were pocket doors. Not only are they huge space-savers, they're cool as hell. Of course, installing one after a home has been constructed is tricky business. Or IS it? Johnson Hardware's Series 200 Wall Mounted Sliding Door hardware makes it actually EASY. The hardware comes in a couple different 'grades'. the 2610F is for doors that weigh up to 200 lbs and measure 1" to 1-3/4" thick, wich prices start at 49 bucks. The 200WM is a heavy duty option for doors that weigh up to 300 lbs and are thicker than 1-1/8"; its prices start at $175. For more information and to order, visit Johnson Hardware.

I don't know why more homes don't have them where ever possible. If I were an architect I'd put them everywhere I could. They have special locks for them now too.

We just installed a pocket door to our remodeled bathroom, and will be replacing a bedroom door with one soon. Eventually, all the doors possible, will be replaced with pocket doors. I love them. They really open up our house.

You're right Heth, it is the very same idea. Just a bit prettier.

I think this would just be called a "barn" door.

Wow I like this. I wonder if they'll work for double doors? We ahve two doorways that are five feet wide that I'd love sliders on. Thought about using closet door hardware but use full glass doors, but this is neat too.
