In the past interior pocket door have been used to separate space for the sake of creating privacy. These doors are made in such a way that they slide within the metallic frame on the wall. This cavity is what is called a pocket. They slide and disappear into the wall. When painted the same color as the rest of the wall one wouldn’t know there is a door. They are a practical, easy to install and safe way to conserve space. They can be used in country or contemporary homes, houses or offices and retro or classic rooms.
These doors conserve space because they are tiny whereas the hinged door consume a lot of floor space. These makes the more favorable in especially in very small bathrooms or rooms where there is a floor space or wall space deficit.
Hinged doors cannot be installed on either side of the door opening but pocket doors can. It is designed the same way both sides and can therefore be reversed and no one would know. This is if both rooms use the same color of paint or if the door is made of glass.
They add style to a space especially if they are made of glass. They make the space appear bigger then in actually is. Interior pocket doors with windows also work well in rooms that do not need much privacy like separating the parlous and the kitchen. Unlike hinged doors that just look like doors, pocket doors show class.
Interior pocket door are also made in the same design and color as your house so they help bring out you décor better and enhance the look in your house. Hinge doors can also be colored the same as your wall but they do not enhance the décor in a room as much as pocket doors do.
Having a pocket door installed costs between $400-$1000 depending on the complexity of installation.
