Pocket Doors were popular in Victorian times and remains a recognizable feature of many buildings preserved from the era. Pocket doors regained prominence in the 1950’s during post-war housing development as a space saving solution in new homes. You can find this door style in many Bay Area homes and it is a charming architectural detail that many want to preserve.
Pocket Doors remain popular today, as an attractive and efficient space saving solution for bathrooms, closets, utility rooms, and offices. Pocket doors are available in a multitude of styles including glass, frosted glass, mirrored, bypass, and folding styles
If you have existing pocket sliding doors, you may want to replace them since there have been technological developments to improve functionality with the use of ceiling tracks, floor tracks, and multi-pass sliding doors.
If you are looking for a more modern look that still saves space, you may also want to consider installing a barn door.
