Sliding barn doors are hugely popular right now and it’s easy to see why. This is one design trend that works in just about any style of home. Barn doors blend seamlessly into a rustic style home, add character to a traditional home, and bring warmth to modern design. Homeowners and designers value how customizable these doors are. While the phrase “barn door” brings to mind rustic, reclaimed wood, there are actually a lot of different styles of sliding barn doors available today. The wide variety of wood choices, finishes, and mounting hardware allow you to select the door that is “just right” for your space.
Barn doors are being utilized all over houses from master suites to kitchens. We love using sliding barn doors in the living areas of the home. Unlike pocket doors or other traditional sliding doors, these doors add a design element to a room when both open and closed. Use them to hide away the necessary but not so pretty areas of your home. Bulky exercise equipment or a dull laundry area can be concealed by a beautiful sliding barn door. Smaller scale doors are a unique way to hide media centers when not in use.
These doors also easily divide a large open space into smaller defined areas when entertaining. Sliding one of these doors open to reveal a beautifully designed bar is a stylish way to let guests know the party has started.
Trends in home design come and go, something anyone with an unused formal living room can attest to. It’s rare for one to come along that so easily blends style and functionality like sliding barn doors. Their popularity will only continue to grow. Let’s sit down together and explore all of the options for adding a sliding barn door to your space. It will be a decision you will be pleased with for years to come.
