A feature found in many Victorian and Craftsman style homes, pocket doors add beauty and style to your space and slide completely out of sight when not in use. With two sets of pocket doors, this open family room transforms into a private parlor with the slide of a hand. Usually made of solid wood, pocket doors are great at blocking sound, allowing you to entertain or watch a late night movie without waking the kids.
Pocket doors can be a huge space saver, especially in tight spaces like this bathroom. By eliminating the hinged door, this powder room-sized bathroom can comfortably accommodate a glass shower enclosure.
If you are considering a pocket door for your bathroom, keep in mind the level of privacy you desire. While you may be comfortable with frosted glass in the master suite, your guests will appreciate a solid door for the powder room.
If your master closet is attached to the bathroom, a pocket door will prevent the humidity of your steamy showers from wafting into your closet without taking up precious floor space. When it comes to closets, bigger is always better, am I right? Closets are all about functional storage and no closet is complete without a full length mirror! In a closet where wall space is prime real estate, opt for extra shoe storage and select a pocket door with a built-in mirror.
Pocket doors are also perfect for homes with pets and small children. Keep your pups and little tykes out from under foot when you cook, or keep them in the kitchen when answering your front door with a smart pocket style Dutch door.
Pocket doors are just the beginning of the beauty that sliding doors can bring to your home. The latest trend that is here to stay goes by many names. Track doors, sliding doors, hanging doors, or barn doors are just as much about function as they are about form, adding an eye-catching element and dimension to your space.
