Benefits of Modern Pocket Doors
Whether you are designing and/or developing residential or commercial buildings, there are significant benefits to using pocket doors. Here are some of the most important.
Stylish Contemporary Appearance
Contemporary design uses sleek and clean lines, eliminating clutter – and doors jutting into living or working space break through those lines to ruin the effect. To quote the Renaissance master, Leonardo Da Vinci, “simplicity is the ultimate sophistication,” with upscale pocket doors an ideal embodiment of that philosophy.
Space Saving Features
Because this type of door slides into a compartment in the wall – rather than swinging out into living or working space – significant space is saved, especially if modern cavity sliders are used throughout the structure. And, besides saving actual space, when pocket doors are used between rooms, opening them up creates a more spacious effect.
Functional and Versatile
You can use double doors, for example, to turn two conference rooms into one larger one. In a home, they can separate a kitchen from a dining room or breakfast nook. When the homeowner wants privacy in the kitchen so that guests can enjoy the ambiance of an elegant dining area, he or she can simply shut the doors. When it’s an informal gathering where family and friends are relaxing together, open them up.
Let’s say you’re lugging in boxes of office supplies into the company storage area – or carrying clean clothes from the laundry room. It can be a pain to have someone else hold the door open or wedge something under the door and watch it slip and slide, and maybe shut. Pocket doors solve the problem.
When wheelchair access is needed, you can simply open up the modern pocket doors, with double doors providing plenty of opening. This allows the person easy access and manoeuvrability.
Quiet Cavity Slider Frame Installation & Construction
You might be remembering pocket doors from the past, where noisy rollers were a downside, and when doors didn’t fit well within the tracks. Modern materials and construction techniques have solved that – at least when you buy high-quality products.
