Okay so perhaps you have pocket doors in your home. Thats totally okay no one will judge. But as you may notice their popularity is quickly fading and if you DO have those doors you probably know exactly why. First homeowners these days are wanting to really take pride in the aesthetics of their home. Pocket doors merely serve as a means to an end: to act as a door if needed otherwise to disappear out of sight. People these days are wanting to showcase their doors and make them part of a rooms decor. Pocket doors dont allow for this at all. Sliding hardware lets the homeowner proudly display their door as part of a rooms decor.
Pocket door hardware is functional and has no bearing on physical appearance. The pocket door hardware includes rails of metal or plastic with rollers or casters that allows the door to glide into and out of an extended wall on either side to seal off a room. The pocket door hardware can be cheap or expensive. The expensive side allows your doors to remain steady and glide shut easily whereas the cheaper will have you seeing your door sag and be tougher to pull shut.
