The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in St. George Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a huge resurgence in St. George home decor. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the biggest home fashion trends of this past year. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback because of their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your space!

Here are some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in St. George homes.

Sliding 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 the bathroom feel much more stylish, but it lets you use space like other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it occupies space in either the the bathroom or the bedroom – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to bathroom doors, barn doors let you have tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a perfect choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. In addition, general use closets are the perfect spot to put barn doors, because they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show off its unique style.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to go where doors go. Large sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more private feeling in your St. George home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In St. George apartments or townhomes, barn doors are being used more as these kinds of housing catch up to modern interior design. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In their own way, barn doors let you get the best parts of a house and a condo.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

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

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can be both a frame and cover to a tv on your wall. You can not only frame your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the TV when it’s not in use to make the room look a little cozier and less high-tech.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinctive blend of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re great in a St. George home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for scrawling down notes or planning.

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

Barn Doors in St. George Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Separating parts of a store or restaurant, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s emerged in commercial spaces.
