Interior Doors - Paint One Side -Stain Other Side

16 years ago

We are installing a pocket door between our kitchen and formal dining room. We would like the kitchen side of the door to be stained to match the trim and other doors in the kitchen and would like the dining room side to be painted to match that room.

What should be done with the jambs/stop? What's painted, what's stained? Where does one begin, the other stop?

Is there a mfg of a combination door - one side wood, one side MDF? I read an article (from 2004) that Trustile had such a door, but I do not see it as an option on their website.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.
