Pocket Doors, the space saving choice is yours.
The pocket door in itself is nothing new, the way the pocket door kits have been engineered certainly is, in the last 20 or so years the pocket door system has eveolved in to something that is very versatile.
The option to choose from the relatively simple system that slides in to a timber stud partition as shown above or telescopic pocket doors that allow two doors to slide in the same direction but in to one pocket cassette and then there is the unilateral pocket doors that allow two doors from opposing directions to slide in to a central single pocket cassette.
The small image below sets out in clear and simple terms why using pocket doors can be a massive saving when compared to traditional hinged doors, the larger the property - the more space that can be saved.
