Frequently Asked Questions

Is a pocket door kit easy to install?

If you're an experienced joiner or DIY professional, you should have no issue installing pocket doors.

Your biggest concern will be whether or not the wall in question is suitable for installing pocket doors. Walls with pipes and electrical wiring are far from ideal. However, if the finished wall thickness offers enough space within the wall itself, it is simply a case of removing the appropriate amount of drywall (if necessary) and assembling the sliding door kit and jamb kit (if included) using our easy-to-follow instructions, before making repairs and bringing the wall back up to standard.

Additions you can install within the wall, like a rear door stop, also add to the longevity of the door brackets and the pocket door system as a whole. But should you need more assistance, please reach out to Runners.

Why aren't pocket doors as common anymore?

Pocket doors used to be incredibly popular in homes in the 1800s, as double doors and single doors. However, they used to run along poorly built tracks that crossed the walk path, rather than inside the wall, resulting in a trip hazard.

This led to pocket doors gradually being phased out by builders over safety concerns, often being replaced with a traditional hinged door.

But thanks to modern solutions, like the pocket door kits available from Runners, all equipment is hidden seamlessly inside the wall cavity, creating an attractive and perfectly safe disappearing door effect that also adds plenty of usable floor space that would have otherwise been taken up by outward-swinging door furniture.

Do pocket doors increase the value of a property?

Because they are considered to be a very attractive and modern addition to a home, the presence of pocket doors could lead to slightly higher home valuations, which can be appealing to clients who are seeking to make their home as much of a statement - both visually and financially - as possible.

They're easy to reverse if someone wished to replace the pocket door with a traditional door again, or to remove the door entirely, adding yet even more home appeal.

A recessed door post, as featured in pocket door kits, also helps keep unwanted light out of a room as the door crosses into the pocket completely, making homes feel even more attractive.

What rooms can pocket door kits be used in?

Pocket door kits are popularly used in living and dining rooms, as these are the rooms which people often want to show off the most to family, friends and guests. However, pocket doors can be installed to access/exit virtually any room.

They also make a great addition to bedrooms, bathrooms, studies, offices, kitchens and more, making them a truly versatile door solution.
