The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Atlanta Homes

Dan Taylor

Sliding barn doors have made a huge comeback in Atlanta interior design. In fact, they’ve been one of the most popular interior fashion trends of this past year. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your house!

We’ve gathered some of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in Atlanta homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is our favorite way to use them. Not only does it make the 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 bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – barn doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, sliding barn doors give you tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a fantastic choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. In addition, general use closets are a great spot to put barn doors, because they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests to let you show the barn door’s looks.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to occupy the same places as normal doors. Large sliding barn doors can help separate one of your roms into smaller sections to create a little more personal feeling in your Atlanta home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Atlanta apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing catch up to modern home design. With a sliding barn door instead of a traditional door separating rooms, your space will feel less confined and segmented. In a small way, barn doors give you the best parts of a house and a townhouse.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually refer to barn doors on windows as “barn door shutters,” even if they aren’t very similar to most plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are a lasting look and style, and they can block a lot of outside light to make your home cool and comfy.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique uses we’ve seen for barn doors. Barn doors can be a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted flat screen tv or entertainment center. You can not only create a frame for the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the monitor when it’s not in use to make the room look a little cozier and less high-tech.

Home Office Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinct blend of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a Atlanta home office. We even offer barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for writing notes or planning.

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

Barn Doors in Atlanta Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a home, but we’re mentioning it because barn doors look downright awesome in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of an office or cafe, or as a barrier between a lobby and conference rooms – classic barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
