Cramped Bathroom Layout? You need a Sliding Pocket Door Kit

  • Improve your bathroom layout.
  • Make the space in your bathroom seem bigger without moving walls.
  • Free up wall space by getting your door to slide into a pocket in the wall instead of sliding along the outside of the wall.

    Replacing your hinged door with a sliding pocket door is an affordable way to make your bathroom feel bigger.

    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.

    Rocket Pocket Door Kit.

    This inexpensive, yet strong and reliable pocket door kit will allow you to create a pocket in your wall which the door can then slide into. This will make your bathroom look and feel bigger, you will gain usable floor space and the sliding door will not take up wall space.
