Shaker Stile Width for Narrow Doors

6 years ago

This is for the 2 pocket doors, on the pantry closet. I really like substantial stiles, but am limited to a 15" wide door (30" total). Due to my shelving plan for the interior, I need the two pocket doors in the center, versus a single larger door.


What would you suggest are pleasing dimensions for the stiles and rails? As a reminder, stiles are vertical (think 'stilts') and rails are horizontal.


This sketchup shows 2.5" side stiles, 2.5" top rail, 2" center rails, and 5" bottom rail.


I would appreciate your thoughts and recommendations for improvement.
