They suck IMO, they usually end up failing down the road in some way. Pain in the butt to repaint them once hung unless you remove trim. If you absolutely need to use them for gods sake use a solid core door and a high quality pocket door kit. Same goes for barn doors mostly, in my opinion they look cool but are not that functional as an actual door. Having lived in 2 houses that had them and installed countless of both pocket and barn doors, i prefer a standard door, especially for bathrooms and bedroomsCurious why some of you guys mentioned that you don’t like pocket doors?
