Regular hinged doors are work fine most of the time, but they do have one big downside: wasted space. Because you need room to open the door, you have to leave around 30″ of space on average it to be able to open fully—space that you may need if the room is small and has a cramped layout. Here are some common situations where using a pocket door could be the perfect alternative!
Free up Space for a Home Office in a Small Room
Home offices are often an afterthought, tucked into some small, cramped corner of your home in a room that might not be quite big enough. You may not be able to change the room your office is in, but you can make the room you have a bit larger and freer with a pocket door! We even offer soft close to minimize any noise from your family while you’re on a zoom call with your boss or coworkers.
