If you are thinking of installing a sliding door in your property, you have obviously realised that a door that slides takes up less space than a traditional hinged door. You may want a sliding door because….
STOP thinking sliding door and start thinking POCKET DOOR!
Sliding pocket doors are sometimes just called ‘sliding doors’ but instead of the door sliding along a wall when it is opened the door actually slides into a pocket in the wall.
Like sliding doors they are top hung from a track. But unlike sliding doors, the actual door of a pocket door is there when you need privacy and gone when you don't.
With a top hung sliding door the track is surface mounted on the wall, so the track, the door, the floor guide etc are all visible.
With a pocket door, the track and pocket are hidden in the wall so all you see is the door when it is in the closed position and the edge of the door when the door is open.
Pocket doors can be set so the door goes all the way back into the pocket or so you only see a part of the door and the handle when it is in the open position.
Example 1: A pocket door between stairs on one side and a freestanding kitchen cabinet on the other.
Example 2: A pocket door closes off the space between a corridor and sitting room with furniture against the wall
