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 just about anywhere in your home!
Here are a few of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in Denver homes.
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 play with space in ways that other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – sliding barn doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.
Barn Doors as Closet Doors
Similar to the bathroom, barn doors let you have 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 it off.
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.
Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement
In Denver condos or apartments, barn doors are being used more as these kinds of housing embrace modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In a small way, barn doors give you the best parts of a house and a townhouse.
Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment
We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” even if they aren’t very similar to most plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a lasting style, and the ability to block a great deal of outside light to keep your interior cool and inviting.
Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center
This is actually one of the most unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can act as both a frame and cover to a plasma screen on your wall. This lets you not only frame your TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the screen when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.
Home Office Barn Doors
Sliding doors are a distinct blend of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re great in a Denver home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for writing notes or planning.
Keep in mind, just because that’s where you work doesn’t mean your home office has to be plain.
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 booming in commercial spaces.
