Decorating & Furniture/Corridor/hallway door ideas
I need help choosing the most suitable type of door [swinging...etc]. I'll describe the situation:
Our reception and living room are joined and they both lead to the corridor/hallway, and we'd like to put some sort of door at the beginning of the corridor/hallway to restrict the air conditioning to the reception and living room only and stop the cool air from "leaking" to the hallway.
We though of putting a swinging door there, but we usually have children running around our house so we are looking for a more practical sort of door that also looks classy.
Do you have any idea on what we should do?
Hi Nora, I think a pocket door may be the most suitable door for this space. It's a conventional door, which can be in either a glass or solid, it works on a sliding track. The door slides in and out of a pocket in the wall. (see attached photo), great for tight spaces. A pocket door can be a little pricy. Your other option might be to opt for conventional hinged door with glass panels.
I also offer an 'Ask the Decorator' service on my website. I would be happy to be of further assistance to you if needed.
Thank you, for your time.
