    The Prices for Interior Pocket Doors

    Traditionally used in older homes to provide sleek separation and privacy between the parlor and living room, interior pocket doors are also popular throughout the modern home. Able to close when you need privacy or neatly tuck away when you don't, interior pocket doors' convenient and space-saving design makes them well worth the investment.

    By gliding on a track that disappears into a door-sized cavity in the wall, interior pocket doors reclaim the space normally wasted on swinging doors and boost the available floorspace in your home. Unlike traditional hinged doors, however, there are other construction costs that should be considered when installing a pocket door. To learn more about the prices of interior pocket doors for your home, continue reading.

    General Costs for Interior Pocket Doors

    Although estimates for installing interior pocket doors in your home tend to range widely, the final price will always rely on a few contributing factors. For the door to be able to slide in and out of view, a door-width opening must also be built into the adjacent wall, which will raise the cost of your interior pocket doors. For a complete remodeling project or new home construction where the walls are already removed, prices for interior pocket doors usually begin between $400 and $1,000. Planning ahead for your interior pocket doors, rather than creating a new door pocket in a preexisting wall, is usually the easiest way to install these doors.

    Additional Cost Considerations

    Usually hung from an overhead track which is recessed above the door opening, interior pocket doors require rollers. Rollers are mounted to the top of the door in order for interior pocket doors to glide smoothly in and out of sight. In situations where the wight-bearing capacity above the door is limited, floor rollers and tracks can serve as a perfect alternative to traditional top-hung pocket doors, although there is the downside of collected debris and a tripping hazard. Prices for hardware kits usually run between $150 and $350, although homeowners should note that opting for pricier, four-wheeled rollers can pay off in the long run, as they will ensure a more even rolling surface for the door.

    Beside the cost and installation of the door itself, some interior pocket doors may also include additional construction costs to consider. If you plan to replace an already existing hinged door with a pocket door for instance, the project will also require the existing wall alongside the doorway to be torn out as well, which can add anywhere from $1000 to as much as $3500 to the overall price, especially depending on what you find within the wall. If there is any plumbing, electrical, or heating ducts running through, these will also need rerouting before work can begin—potentially adding $400 to $800 to costs.

    Bottom Line: Plan Ahead for these Practical Doors

    Elegantly separating the rooms of your home while also saving space, interior pocket doors have a unique, practical design. Although these easy-to-hide doors also come with a few extra cost considerations to keep in mind, pocket doors are an innovative alternative to traditional interior doors.
