French Doors vs. Pocket Doors
If you’re considering a home remodel or custom home build, there are many factors to consider. At the end of the project, you want your home to feel unique and special to your family’s wants and needs, which is why our team at MK Construction & Builders, Inc. is here to help you with every step of the process. If you’re hoping to add some character and charm into your living space, starting with your doors is ideal. Both French doors and pocket doors bring a unique feel to your space, so which option is best for you?
French doors consist of doors that have glass panes extending for most of their length, so if you want a door option that allows in plenty of natural light, you won’t be disappointed by French doors. They are an ideal option to allow more sunlight into your home and can be installed between rooms to allow for separation in addition to providing more natural light. Both single and double French doors are the perfect addition to any home remodel. Don’t be afraid to use French doors for your bathroom as well, topping it with frosted glass for privacy.
Unlike French doors that swing open, pocket doors rest on sliding tracks and fold into themselves, hiding behind the wall. When you want to close the door, you pull the double doors from their convenient hiding spot in the wall. Because pocket doors are so discreet, they are ideal for small spaces that wouldn’t work with doors that took up more space.
Ultimately, the decision of French doors versus pocket doors is up to you! If you’re interested in exploring other door options, our team is only a phone call away!
