2. Reclaim door space. This bathroom has a pocket door that takes up zero space in the room. And what I particularly love about this pocket door is that it is beautiful and has a handle that is easy to get hold of. Most pocket doors have a tiny, circular depression to hold so that it can slide all the way inside the wall. If you can make your pocket door opening a little wider, then you can spare a few inches for a skinny, vertical handle like this.
