Door handles for pocket and barn doors

 When it comes time to select interior door styles there is no reason to choose something dull and ordinary.  A unique pocket or barn door will add interest and, in many circumstances, better utilize the available space.  And stylish door knobs and pulls for these doors will add another layer of detail to your residential and commercial interior design projects.

Pocket door hardware

A pocket door is a sliding door that is housed in a compartment between two walls into which the door disappears when closed. It is ideal for areas that have limited space for a swinging or hinged door or for those looking for an uncluttered look, as well as to gain easy access to an area. However, pocket doors do require some careful consideration when the time comes to select door knobs.  The hardware style and function is determined by the design of the door but the installation may require specialty hardware installed into the exposed frame of the door.  Some pocket doors, however, allow for more attractive hardware such as a dummy (or inactive)  door knob or pull.

Barn doors

An interior barn door adds just the right amount of rustic chicness to any design project.  These sliding doors provide privacy and light control but can also be installed as a movable divider between rooms. Along with the hardware required to hang and install a barn door, the only hardware necessary to operate the doors is a door knob, pull or lever placed on both sides of the door.  For example, this bronze door handle with grapevine detailing would beautifully compliment any interior barn door hung in a spa or wine cellar, for example.
