The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Denver Homes

Gary Harding

Sliding barn doors have made a big resurgence in Denver home decor. In fact, they’ve been one of the most popular home decor trends of this past year. Maybe sliding barn doors have come back in a big way because of their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your home!

Here are a few of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Denver homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the barrier between the master bedroom and bathroom is one of the best ways to use them. Not only does it make the bathroom look much cozier, but it lets you utilize space in ways that other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – sliding barn doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to the bathroom, barn doors offer plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a perfect choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. Plus, these closets are the perfect place for sliding barn doors, because they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show off its unique style.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to go where doors go. Large sliding barn doors can help separate one of your roms into smaller sections if you want to create a little more intimate feeling in your Denver home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Denver apartments or townhomes, barn doors are being used more as these kinds of housing embrace modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In a small way, barn doors give you the best parts of a house and a condo.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” even if they don’t have much in common with most plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a timeless style, and the ability to block a great deal of outside light to make your space much more comfortable.

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can act as both a frame and cover to a plasma screen on your wall. You can not only frame your TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the TV when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding doors are a distinctive blend of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a Denver home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for writing notes or planning.

Remember, just because that’s where you work doesn’t mean your home office has to be plain.

Sliding Barn Doors in Denver Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but we’re mentioning it because barn doors look downright awesome in commercial spaces. Separating parts of an office or restaurant, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
