Pocket doors not only add a neat design element to a room, they save space in restricted areas. These sliding doors disappear into the adjacent wall, and can built-in or hung on the wall, an option ideal for retrofit projects.

Pocket doors can add up to 10 square feet of floor space normally required by a swinging door. They work on rollers that can be suspended from overhead tracks or balanced on floor tracks. The hidden parts behind walls can make repair difficult but the wall-hung variations eliminate that problem.

The doors can be used as an extension of the room's design, incorporating colors, vinyl decals or wallpaper coverings. Magnetic or dry-erase surfaces can also be used on pocket doors, making them a great organization strategy. In children's rooms they are a great way to organize homework, schedules and job charts.

Pocket doors are virtually invisible when fully open and allow you to see all the contents of the closet at one time. The installation for many of the new models available is easy, requires only basic tools and is a great way to affordably update a room, particularly a small space.
