A sliding pocket door versus a hinged door
The swing of a hinged door can be a real problem when trying to design a bathroom layout or cloakroom layout where space is limited. Often the door swings into the bathroom restricting where you can place your sanitary ware or it swings out into the hall or corridor.
You could install a simple sliding door that slides along the wall as a solution. The disadvantage of doing this is that the door then takes up wall space and the track and sliding mechanism and floor guides etc is on view.
There is a simple alternative solution to this problem... replace your hinged door with a pocket door.
What is a pocket door?
A pocket door is a door that is top hung from a track and that slides into a pocket in the wall (so there is no track in the floor). The pocket fits inside the stud wall, so it needs to be robust as it is replacing the stud work in your wall. When the door is opened it slides into the pocket in the wall and so does not take up floor space or wall space.
