tall closet doors

M_N_AApril 27, 2013

I have 8 ft ceiling. I don't like the regular 80" door as closet door. I want the door to be as tall as possible.

something like this

1. what is the max height i could get without going custom?
2. where to get such door for good price?

Standard interior door heights are 80", 84" and 96".

We have 7'-6" closet doors from TruStile. It is also a standard height.

That said, we have vaulted ceilings and at the lowest point, our ceiling is 9 ft tall.

A 96" door and a 96" ceiling (8') would look strange. Even with a 7'6" door, you would need to account for the door trim and any crown molding.

A 96" door will not fit in 96" ceilings period with or without trim.

@M_N_A - we went through our lumber yard for the TruStile doors. You can find a dealer through the dealer locator on the TruStile website.

I can't recall the exact price (since we worked with our contractor and made an upgrade from the original architectural spec of the Masonite molded doors). I think the doors were coming in around $500 to $600 per door (we had 23 doors) but don't quote me on that.
