Internal pocket doors

What is an internal pocket door?

Internal pocket doors slide into an opening in the adjacent wall. They disappear completely when fully opened. The encasing wall requires enough space to house the door and it’s for this reason pocket doors are usually specified and designed at the beginning of a house build. Walls can be constructed to accommodate them this way. Pocket doors are often top-hung on wheels with a supporting metal track.

Why choose a pocket door?

For interior design that’s centred on a minimalistic, clean aesthetic, pocket doors can perfectly complement it. They can be crafted in single- or double-leaf configuration according to space and accessibility. Single pocket doors are ideal for en-suites, pantries and utility areas, whereas a double pocket door is a striking way to break up open-plan space or house a walk-in wardrobe.

Why Deuren is technically superior

Our custom internal doors are made to measure. Our expert craftsmen ensure the highest quality product comes out of our UK factory so that you know they will slot in perfectly at your home. Deuren contemporary internal doors couple ease of use with outstanding design and technical superiority.

Handmade in the UK

Every Deuren door is expertly made, finished and prepped for installation in our Yorkshire-based factory. That means you’ll benefit from tailored customer care, faster turnaround, a premium-quality product and a lower carbon footprint.

A seamless, matching aesthetic

Our bespoke internal doors, frames and architraves are each made from the same batch of timber from the same tree, resulting in a beautifully consistent finish. Plus, you can choose any paint hue for each side of the door to ensure it perfectly matches the room it faces.

High-quality hardware

Our exquisite door handles are self-sprung and made from stainless steel or cast in solid brass and plated to a finish of your choice. A concealed hinge system, with its precise technology, enables the door to sit completely flush and seamlessly complement the room’s design.

Engineered solid timber

A Deuren door’s core is made up of multiple layers of hardwood. This improves the stability and performance of the door and ensures it remains resistant to warping due to changes in its surrounding environment.

Design-to-installation service

Deuren’s comprehensive service begins with initially immersing ourselves in your vision, before constructing the design and surveying measurements. We’ll then manufacture your custom doors and can arrange for mess-free installation at your property.

What are the benefits of a pocket door?

Maximise existing space

Because a pocket disappears into a compartment in the wall, it provides the opportunity to maximise the space you have. Small spaces and tighter spots can benefit from the additional space gained where a traditional hinged door would require swing space. Where a pocket door is installed instead of a hinged door, an average of 10 square feet of floor space is gained. 

Differentiate with striking design

If you’re building your own home, architectural design possibilities are endless. Specify a pocket door at the design stage of your build, as it may be costly (or not even possible) to factor this in down the line. The pocket door is fitted into your wall structure via a first and second fix as the build takes shape.

Convenience and flexibility

Adjoin and break out two separate spaces as and when required. Close a room off for a more intimate setting when needed or open the pocket door to create a vast open space – if you’re entertaining, for example.

Make a real feature of your doors by specifying in a configuration to suit you.
