The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Clearwater Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a huge resurgence in Clearwater interior fashion. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular home fashion trends of this past year. Maybe the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is due to their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your house!

Below are some of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Clearwater homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is a fantastic way. Not only does it make the bathroom feel wholly unique, but it lets you use space in ways that other doors can’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it occupies space in either the the bathroom or the bedroom – sliding barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Just like the bathroom, sliding barn doors give you plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a perfect choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. In addition, general use closets are the perfect spot for sliding barn doors, since they’re usually out in the open so you can show the barn door’s looks.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to go where doors go? Large sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller spaces to create a little more private feeling in your Clearwater home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Clearwater condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, barn doors are showing up more as these kinds of housing embrace modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In a small way, barn doors can help you get the best of both worlds of a house and a townhouse.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” even if they don’t have much in common with interior plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are a timeless style, and the ability to block a lot of light to make your space much more comfortable.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can be both a frame and cover to a tv on your wall. You can not only create a frame for your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the screen when you’re not using it to make the room look a little cozier and less high-tech.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinctive blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re right at home in a Clearwater home office. Sunburst even offers barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for scrawling down notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Clearwater Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but we’re mentioning it because barn doors look downright awesome in commercial spaces. Separating parts of a store or eatery, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – sliding barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
