8 Creative Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Charlotte Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a big resurgence in Charlotte home design. In fact, barn doors are been one of the most popular interior decor trends of 2018. Perhaps sliding barn doors have come back in a big way due to their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your house!

Here are some of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in Charlotte homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using 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 the bathroom look much cozier, but it lets you make use of space like other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it occupies space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with bathroom doors, sliding barn doors offer tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a fantastic choice for a closet in the hall or foyer. Additionally, these closets are the perfect spot to put barn doors, because they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show the barn door’s looks.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always need to occupy the same places as normal doors? Wide sliding barn doors can help divide a room into smaller sections to create a little more intimate mood in your Charlotte home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Charlotte apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are being used more as these spaces embrace modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In their own small way, barn doors let you get the best of both worlds of a house and an apartment.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” but they don’t have much in common with interior 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 home cool and comfy.

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can act as both a frame and cover to a tv on your wall. You can not only create a frame for the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the TV when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding doors are a distinct blend of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re great in a Charlotte home office. We even offer barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards 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 boring.

Barn Doors in Charlotte Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of an office or restaurant, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – classic barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
