Barn Doors for Interior Spaces

A kitchen with a sliding barn door for interior spaces.

Barn doors have transitioned into interior elements within a home’s design.  They are rich in character and when mounted on sliders, their ease of movement makes them welcome features to the home.  Barn doors are equally at home in the entryway, as room dividers, or on closets and pantries.  Barn doors are even seen displayed on the wall as decorative elements.

In the entryway, barn doors allow for a dramatic entrance into the main rooms of the home.  Fitting well within traditionally styled rooms, barn doors offer up plenty of charm and character with a rustic appeal.  When installed on runners, they open easily and slide out of the way.

Barn doors are an excellent addition to the kitchen.  Installed for the pantry, they blend functionality with natural style.  Whether finished with a warm stain, naturally weathered or painted to highlight the kitchen, barn doors bring home a classic touch.

Barn doors even blend well with a more contemporary or industrial styled home and offer a contrast in texture.  The wood brings warmth to a contemporary space and can make a bold statement.

Barn doors are often hung on the wall for decoration in rustic or country interiors.  Alone or with other embellishments, barn door wall hangings make a statement behind the sofa, on an accent wall or as a headboard in the bedroom.
