Architect Your Home added this to Want to Knock Down a Wall? Ask These Important Questions First24 April 2018

What if I don’t want to see my doors when they’re open?If you want to hide your doors away when you open up between your rooms, a popular trend is for ‘pocket doors’. These slide away discreetly into a counter frame within a stud wall, only to be seen when you want to alter the dynamic, function or intimacy of the room by closing them. They are top-hung, which means the floor is left free from obstruction, so there’s no perceivable change in the flooring, allowing the rooms to flow freely into one another. The key to the smooth operation of a pocket door is in the preparation and planning, especially if you’re installing it in an existing home, as you’ll need to think about what services and pipes might already be inside the wall cavity. It may be that there are easier ways of achieving this if it’s a more flexible space you’re after

Visual harmonyThere’s something undeniably soothing about the ordered, symmetrical arrangement in this London home, where a sturdy built-in bookshelf runs either side of a doorway and all the way above it. A ladder propped at one end makes it easy to reach volumes stored up high.Look at these ingenious ways in which book racks can divide spaces
