Question

sliding door with a curved top opening


is this design realistic and feasible ?

i would like to have a sliding bedroom door to allow more space (tight real estate).

i think that a curved top door opening is very cool looking.

how does one accomplish the curve with drywall (not the cut-out face part but the inside actual curved part) ?

thanks.

Pocket door by any other name; Here is your problem; How do you get that door into the opening? better yet get it out without tearing out the wall.
If you want a round top then you have to frame it with a fixed transom above the door, the pocket door will be a normal square top setup
