Why choose a pocket door for your bathroom?
A pocket door is an extremely popular choice in bathrooms in place of a traditional hinged door, the main reason for this being that many bathrooms & toilets have limited space available. A sliding pocket door means that the space that would previously have been taken up by a hinged door sliding into the room, now becomes usable floor space in front of a toilet or shower.
How can you maintain privacy with a bathroom pocket door?
The main reason people don’t consider a pocket door from the offset is because they’re concerned that pocket doors can’t maintain the same level of privacy, however this couldn’t be further from the case. We have a range of pocket door hardware, including handles that come with privacy locks built-in from both ECLISSE & Cavity Sliders, allowing the doors to function in the same way as a traditional hinged door.
Are there other benefits of a Pocket Door in a bathroom?
If you choose to install a pocket door in your bathroom, whether that’s a small space with just a sink & a toilet or an en-suite coming off your master bedroom, there are a number of extra benefits of making this choice:
- Carry through more light: Often en-suite or small bathrooms can lack natural lighting due to their positioning in a build, by choosing a glass pocket door it makes it possible to carry the light through from the bedroom, hallway or a-joining rooms into the bathroom itself. A frosted glass panel is great choice to provide privacy but also a firm favourite with interior design experts.
- Improved functionality: By choosing a bathroom pocket door you’re also able to add additional hardware that improves the functionality of your door, including things such as soft close functionality, self closing functionality & noise cancelling functionality.
- ADA compliance: If you’re looking for an option that allows easy access between rooms, either due to limited mobility or hygiene reasons, an ada compliant pocket door may be a great option to have installed inside a home or care facility.
