The Benefits of Pocket Doors

Pocket doors offer the cleanest solution when it comes to accessing your closets or separating rooms. Pocket doors slide back in to the wall completely out of site. This means you do not have to deal with doors sticking out in to the room like you have with bifold doors and hinged interior doors. Where sliding doors block a portion of whatever room is on the other side, pocket doors will give you full access.

Why Kestrel Pocket Doors?

Kestrel pocket doors are all custom sized. Hand built from solid, premium hardwoods like Basswood, Spanish Cedar and Mahogany we use traditional pegged, mortise and tenon joinery . We also offer the most diverse line of pocket doors with styles such as louvered doors, mirrors or glass, raised, flat and recessed panels, tongue and groove, fabric, beadboard, board and batten as well as custom interior door designs.
