I have a long corridor that will have 3 separate doors in it. I want to paint them the same colour as the wall, no handles with a push to open catch so they sort of blend in with the wall. Problem I have is how to finish the p/b upto the door. I have included an image to hopefully explain what I am trying to do and one possible solution that I have come up with. You will see that I am hoping to use Soss hinges as they completely disappear when the door is closed giving me the look I am after. The main problem will be leaving enough of the door casing to be able to fix the hinges into hence the angle on the door casing and p/b. Anybody got any better ideas? TIA
I am making my own door casings out of MR MDF as I cannot source my frames due to different widths. SO I am going to use 18mm for the frame with a 12mm plant on to form rebate. I am having shadow gaps around the door casings so no architrave. Has anybody made themselves a jig as I have 15 door casings to put in? I an thinking something along the lines of a 4 x 2 rectangular frame made to smallest door measurement and properly square. I can attach my door casing to the outside (screwed through the rectangular frame into the MDF)and then place in the opening and pack accordingly. If I drill some elongated holes in the 4 x 2 frame where I would fix the casing I can then fix the casing permanently, remove the screws I attached the casing to the rectangular frame and Bob's ur titfer. Has anybody done this as it must be quicker than doing each casing the traditional way? TIA
