Pocket doors are one of the best kept secrets of the home design world because of their unparalleled convenience as well as their space-saving characteristics. For those who may not be familiar with what exactly a pocket door is, it is a door that slides on a set of overhead rollers in order to open or close. Instead of swinging out, pocket doors slide sideways and “disappear” into a wall cavity. This one simple design feature can be a real space saver, especially for smaller rooms such as pantries, closets or bathrooms. It is estimated that using a pocket door can add up to 10 square feet of floor space to a home. 

Pocket Door Designs for the Bedroom

There are several pocket door designs for the bedroom that make perfect sense as well. Many people choose to install pocket doors in the master bathroom if there is a separate area for the shower or if there’s a toilet compartment, both of which would add an extra level of privacy for the user. It is not uncommon as well to see pocket doors installed for master closet spaces, particularly for larger walk-in closets. If you have a small home office area that is connected to the master bedroom, using a pocket door as an entryway into that area makes good sense as well. 

Pocket Door Designs for the Bedroom

It should be noted that when you’re considering pocket door designs for the bedroom, be sure to factor in everything you may want to do with that particular space. For example, you won’t be able to put a light switch or a power outlet on the wall that contains the pocket door frame. No matter which pocket door design for the bedroom you choose, and no matter where you choose to install it, always shoot for quality when it comes to the door as well as the door hardware. Replacing a faulty pocket door can be a real pain, so make sure to install quality hardware from a reputable company. This will ensure that your pocket door will function smoothly and serve you well for many years.
