The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Dallas Homes

August 13, 2018

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 the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is 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.

Sliding 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 cozier, but it lets you utilize space like other doors can’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it takes up space in either the bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – sliding 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 the hall or foyer. In addition, 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 personal 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 space, 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 condo.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “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 timeless style, and they can block a great deal of outside light to make your space much more comfortable.

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 the room look a little cozier and less high-tech.

Home Office Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinct 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 scrawling 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.
