The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Dallas Homes

Collins Jones

Sliding barn doors have made a big comeback in Dallas home decor. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular home design trends of the year. Maybe barn doors are making a comeback because of their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your space!

Below are some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Dallas homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is our favorite way to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom feel much more stylish, but it lets you play with space like other doors can’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it takes up space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to the bathroom, barn doors give you plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. Additionally, general use closets are the perfect place to put barn doors, since they’re typically out in the open to let you show the barn door’s looks.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to occupy the same places as normal doors. Large sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller spaces to create a little more private feeling in your Dallas home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Dallas condos or apartments, barn doors are appearing more as these spaces embrace modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In their own small way, barn doors give you the best parts of a house and a townhouse.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually refer to barn doors on windows as “barn door shutters,” even if they don’t have much in common with interior plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are 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 one of the more unique uses we’ve seen for barn doors. Barn doors can work as both a frame and cover to a plasma screen on your wall. You can not only create a frame for your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the TV when you’re not using it to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinctive mix of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Dallas home office. We even offer barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for jotting down notes or planning.

Remember, just because you work there doesn’t mean a home office has to be plain.

Barn Doors in Dallas Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Separating parts of an office or cafe, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
