The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Gainesville Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a big comeback in Gainesville interior decor. In fact, they’ve been one of the most popular home fashion trends of this past year. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback because of their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your house!

We’ve gathered 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

Similar to the bathroom, sliding barn doors let you have tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a fantastic 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.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors 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.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Gainesville condos or apartments, barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing catch up to modern home design. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In their own small way, barn doors can help you get 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 aren’t very similar to traditional plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are a timeless style, and they can block a lot of light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can be both a frame and cover to a wall-mounted flat screen tv or entertainment center. This lets you 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

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

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Gainesville Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a home, but we’re mentioning it because barn doors look downright awesome in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of a store or restaurant, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
