    Thanks for your question.

    The pocket doors were supplied by Portman.

    What is a pocket door, how does it work and how is it constructed?“A pocket door is exactly what its name suggests – a door that slides into a pocket created in a wall,” Veronica Congdon says. “Either the wall is constructed to suit the door or a false lining can be added to an existing wall to create the pocket.” “There are various types of tracks,” Richard Skinner adds, “and the pocket itself can also be built in a number of ways to suit most construction types.”

    Slide them out of sightIf you want the option of opening up a space or dividing it into two separate rooms, double doors that slide into pockets in the wall are particularly effective. This smart pair of sliding doors can be pulled together to create a more intimate living space and then opened out when you’re entertaining a crowd.Check out 8 architectural tricks to enhance an open-plan space

    ‘We reconfigured the layout, moving the stairs from directly ahead of you as you came in, to the back right of the house, behind the dining room,’ says Wilson. ‘This means that you have a full reception room at the front of the house and it feels a lot more open’. Pocket doors were used to provide an unobtrusive divide between the two rooms when required. ‘Pocket doors disappear,’ says Wilson. ‘These days most people leave their interior doors open anyway, and heat retention isn’t an issue because we have underfloor heating throughout.’Sofa, Made.

    Probably my favourite 'Divider' in this IdeaBook: Large sliding doors. Different surfaces/edges/structures create interest and presence using shadows/light without it being too high contrast like the black frames in the other photos here. I also particularly like this Divider as its strikes the right balance between traditional and modern. Contemporary?

    This is what I think we do with the rear reception room so we don't have to get rid of the wall
