Updating your home is easier than ever before. Adding or removing doors could be one way to do it. However, even in bigger rooms, it might not be able to fit a conventional door that swings open and shut. That’s why pocket doors are so useful. Here is what you should know about them and where they make the most sense in your home.
In a Bathroom
Bathrooms are excellent places to add a hidden pocket door. This design choice makes even more sense when the room is a tight squeeze. You can also use these doors to connect to a closet or as a connection between two bedrooms that share a single bathroom. Adding a mirror to this door will also make getting ready to impress clients or go on a fancy night out on the town is simpler than ever.
In an Office Nook
Take a minute to think about where your home office is – if you have one. Sometimes, it will be a spare bedroom or a separate nook found next to the kitchen. Use a pocket door here to temporarily block the noise coming from the kitchen if you need to sit and get some work done. Using a pocket door as an entryway to the kitchen is also a useful addition, especially if the kitchen splits off into the dining room on one side and the front foyer on the other.
For Children and Pets
Pocket doors are an excellent solution for children’s playrooms or giving your pet room to roam without them tripping down the stairs or being underfoot when you are trying to cook in the kitchen. The pocket door doesn’t need to be too tall for this purpose, especially since you will want to keep an eye on everything while taking the opportunity to get some housework done during naptime!
Pocket doors also represent a great way to play around with textures in surprising ways. Before you launch a remodeling project, you might want to get a feel for a certain aesthetic, mainly to ensure that it looks aesthetically appealing. Sliding the door closed keeps it out of the way when you don’t need it.
