About Pocket Doors
Pocket doors, also known as sliding pocket doors, are commonly featured in closet openings or where the space demanded by a standard swinging door is simply not available. Interior pocket doors are a convenient alternative to hinged doors because they slide sideways and disappear into a wall cavity.
Interior pocket doors are traditionally hung from rollers on an overhead track and glide open or closed when pulled horizontally. Available as single-door and double-door configurations, pocket doors can add an average of ten square feet of floor space to a home.
The space-saving pocket doors were popular in Victorian architecture to close off sitting rooms and parlors. Design trends have since changed and so have the construction of pocket doors which now feature a more fortified design and higher-quality hardware.
The resurgence of residential pocket doors has seen their use expanded to applications in bathrooms, home offices, pantries, closets, and utility rooms.
