Commercial and Residential Modern Pocket Doors: Benefits and Features

Pocket doors are used in commercial and residential designs – and, interestingly enough, were also quite popular in the Victorian era, especially in the late 1800s and early 1900s. They were used as entrances to dining areas, libraries and sitting rooms – but were much noisier than today’s quiet versions. The difference is because of modern materials, hardware and construction techniques found in high quality products.

People in the Victorian era and in the 21st century share a common reason for choosing pocket doors – and that’s their space saving features. These doors slide into a wall compartment, not swinging out into working or living space; so, if you use them throughout a structure or even just in strategic places, significant space is saved. And, you know that phrase, “perception is reality?” Opening up pocket doors, especially double ones, can create an illusion of spaciousness that’s even beyond what is physically available.

Here are four more benefits of modern pocket doors:

Benefit #1: Contemporary Appearance

If clean design lines appeal to you, along with the elimination of clutter, then pocket doors are ideal. This eliminates doors jutting into working or living space to destroy that sleek look. Simplicity, remember, is the “ultimate sophistication” – a philosophy of the great Renaissance master, Leonardo Da Vinci.

Benefit #2: Functional and Versatile

If you are planning a series of conference rooms in an office building, use pocket doors strategically to have the option of opening them up into larger ones. Or, if you’re designing a home, you can build in versatility in living areas, dining areas and more. Place modern pocket doors between the kitchen and a dining room; for elegant occasions, keep them closed and decorate the dining area appropriately. For relaxing times with family and friends, open them up and people can enjoy the extra space.

Benefit #3: Convenience

You really need to lug in that big basket of laundry – or all of those boxes of office supplies – but there are sets of doors blocking you. Now, where did you put that wedge to keep them open? Pocket doors eliminate the problem.

Benefit #4: Provides Handicap Accessibility

People who rely upon wheelchairs need easy access and maneuverability throughout homes and commercial buildings. To make that happen, simply open up pocket doors, with double doors even more effective.
