Design Element: Interior Barn Doors

Source: thedesignerpad.com

I continue to be amazed at how frequently barn doors are appearing in interior design.  This is a trend that simply has not gone away.  Today designers are coming up with more and more creative uses for interior barn doors — and some are even making bold statements with color.  Barn doors aren’t just being used as room dividers any more.  

Barn doors are being used to hide kitchens…

Barn doors are being used to hide mudrooms…

Barn doors are being used to hide laundry rooms…

And barn doors don’t even have to look like barn doors anymore.   Reclaimed doors mounted with barn door hardware can make a great statement in any space.

One of the most appealing aspects  of interior barn doors is that they are not difficult to install.  Taking up less floor space than a traditional swinging door, and requiring less interior wall manipulation when installing than a more traditional pocket door, the barn door simply glides along a track that’s mounted to the wall above the door opening.   A barn door in an interior can also add a rustic or industrial feel to an otherwise traditional space.  Installing an interior barn door is a great example of the type of unexpected design element that can add interest to any space.   Have you ever considered adding one to your home?
