The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Boise Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a huge comeback in Boise home decor. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular home fashion trends of 2018. Maybe the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is because of their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your home!

Here are a few of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Boise homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the entryway between the master bedroom and bathroom is our favorite way to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom feel wholly unique, but it lets you use space in ways that other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the the bathroom or the bedroom – sliding barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to the bathroom, sliding barn doors offer tons 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. Plus, these closets are the perfect place for sliding barn doors, because they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests to let you show the barn door’s looks.

Sliding 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 a room into smaller sections to create a little more personal feeling in your Boise home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Boise condos or apartments, sliding barn doors are being used more as these kinds of housing embrace modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space feels less confined and segmented. In a small way, barn doors can help you get the best of both worlds of a house and a condo.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually refer to barn doors on windows as “barn door shutters,” but they don’t have much in common with most plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are a lasting style, and they block a great deal of outside light to make your space much more comfortable.

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can be a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted flat screen tv or entertainment center. This lets you not only create a frame for your TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover 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 unique blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re right at home in a Boise home office. Sunburst even offers sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with whiteboards for jotting down notes or planning.

Don’t forget, just because that’s where you work doesn’t mean your home office has to be plain.

Barn Doors in Boise 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 – classic barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
