Making your home a sociable space

Making your home a sociable space

Posted by Kevin Stanley on 26th Jan 2024

Do you want to make your home more sociable, but you don’t know how to do it? If you want to make your home more inviting and comfortable for not only yourself, but also for your guests there are many things that you can do to create welcoming spaces.

Creating unique spaces

Your home should be a space that is warm and relaxing, as well as flexible to being used in different ways. By installing ECLISSE pocket door systems you can create your own unique space that will be usable in many different ways for various occasions.

Your home is a space that for 80% of the time should be ideal for meeting the needs of everyday living, but with pocket door systems you can transform your home into a space that’s perfect for entertaining and inviting people to share the space with you.

Standard hinged doors can frustrate interior design ideas where wall space is frustratingly eaten up by the swing of the door and rendered unusable, pocket doors make that space usable and open up a whole world of new possibilities that you never knew existed.

Transforming spaces

If you incorporate pocket doors you can easily make spaces more appropriate for entertaining. Pocket door systems are the most elegant solution for creating spaces that are welcoming, comfortable, and peaceful for you, but can also be quickly and easily transformed into a place to share meals, conversations and laughs with friends and family.

Guest rooms

If you have guests staying over you will want your guest bedroom to be as inviting as possible, but also with an element of detachment from your own living space to allow you privacy. You might even want to make the space feel a little special, designed for the specific use of making guests feel welcome and comfortable. Your guest room might have its own ensuite bathroom which is perfect if you prefer to retain an element of privacy for yourself and your guests. This can be a place for your guests to retreat to should they want privacy. A pocket door between the guest bedroom and the ensuite would be ideal. A pocket door leading into the guest room will create the feeling that it is separate from the rest of the house, whilst also retaining convenient access to the rest of the house and the amenities.

Multi-functional spaces

If you don’t have the space for a separate guest bedroom, then a home office, or a child’s playroom may double up in terms of functionality for short periods of time such as the Christmas holidays. These rooms can work really well as a guest room with just the simple addition of a daybed and a futon.

Seamless connections

The advantages of pocket door systems are that they allow for spaces to be changed very easily and quickly. They can provide a seamless connection between rooms such as the kitchen and the dining room – and in this instance telescopic doors might be a great solution. Or, as mentioned, a convenient connection between a bedroom and an ensuite bathroom.

We hope that this blog has given you some ideas for how you can use pocket door systems to create a more sociable home, whilst retaining an element of privacy for both you and your guests.
