What is a pocket door? No, it’s not something you’d find on a pair of trendy jeans. A pocket door is a sliding door in which the door panel slides into the wall cavity and is hidden from view when the door is open. The major benefit of this type of door is decreased floor space taken up by the door and a more attractive look whether the door is open or closed. If you’re new to the idea of interior pocket doors, here’s some inspiration for how they are used around the home.

Your New Favorite Closet Door
Closets are a place in the home where floor space is crucial and, more often than not, cluttered. With traditional swinging or sliding doors, the door frame often gets caught or stuck on clothes or boxes on the floor and you end up with a door than barely stays functional from day to day. A pocket door, of course, doesn’t have any of these problems because objects can’t get in the way of its concealed tracks and rollers.

Space Saving in the Kitchen
The kitchen pantry is another place where saving space and preventing clutter is key. If you’re serious about your kitchen, interior pocket doors for your pantry bring a stylish and ultra-functional solution to the problem of shoving stacks of food in behind a pantry door. Using clear or lightly frosted glass for the door panel can even let you see what’s in the pantry without opening the door.

Safer Play Places
If you’ve got kids in the house, you know how quickly a slam of the door can turn into a very painful experience for little ones’ fingers or toes. Sliding pocket doors create a much safer alternative. They can be locked open or shut and don’t feature any hinges that can slam kids’ fingers along either edge of the door.
