The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Gainesville Homes

Eric Ramsey

Sliding barn doors are making a big comeback in Gainesville interior decor. In fact, they’ve been one of the most popular home decor trends of 2018. Perhaps the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is because of their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your house!

Below are a few of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Gainesville homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the barrier 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 use space like other doors can’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it takes up space in either the the bathroom or the bedroom – barn doors stay flush against the wall to give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, sliding barn doors offer tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a great choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. Additionally, these closets are a great spot to put barn doors, since they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests to let you show off its unique style.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always need to go where doors go? Big sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller sections if you want to create a little more personal mood in your Gainesville home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Gainesville apartments or townhomes, barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing catch up to modern home design. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In their own small way, barn doors let you get the best parts of a house and a townhouse.

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 traditional plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a timeless style, and the ability to block a lot of light to make your space much more comfortable.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can be both a frame and cover to a wall-mounted TV set. You can not only frame the TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the screen when it’s not in use to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinct mix of fun design, stylish looks, and practicality, so they’re great in a Gainesville home office. Sunburst even offers sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for jotting down notes or planning.

Don’t forget, just because you work there doesn’t mean a home office has to be boring.

Barn Doors in Gainesville Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a home, but it’s worth mentioning how wonderfully barn doors work in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of a store or eatery, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
