The Handy Hidden Pocket Door

Of all the possibilities available when building or remodeling a home, interior pocket doors are probably the most under utilized space-saving delights in the decorating and building world. Besides enabling you to open up a room to the rest of the house, interior pocket doors buy you approximately six to ten square feet of floor space as opposed to a traditional door that requires swing space.

When a room needs to be occasionally closed off, but is too small to accommodate a traditional swinging door or will not be closed often enough to justify a swinging door, a pocket door provides the best of both worlds. Not only do pocket doors buy much needed space, but when they are opened, they are hidden away neatly in the pocket, cutting down on damage to walls and baseboards. You no longer need worry about the doorknob of a swinging door busting through drywall or little ones getting fingers pinched in the hinge space of a traditional door. With interior pocket doors, doorknobs and hinge spaces are things of the past.


Sometimes, thinking out of the box does not come easy, so it’s easy to overlook the benefits of interior pocket doors when remodeling an existing space or building a new one. However, interior pocket doors are definitely worth remembering since they tuck handily away within their own pockets, save space, and open up rooms in dramatic ways to the rest of the house.
