The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Sacramento Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a huge comeback in Sacramento interior fashion. In fact, they’ve been one of the biggest home design trends of this past year. Perhaps sliding barn doors have come back in a big way due to their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your space!

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing 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 look wholly unique, but it lets you utilize space like other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it occupies space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – sliding barn doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, barn doors offer tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a perfect choice for a closet in the hall or foyer. Plus, general use closets are the perfect spot for sliding barn doors, because they’re usually out in the open to let you show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to go where doors go. Wide sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more personal feeling in your Sacramento home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Sacramento condos or apartments, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing catch up to 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 give you the best of both worlds of a house and a condo.

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 traditional plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are a lasting style, and the ability to block a lot of light to make your space much more comfortable.

Sliding 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 wall-mounted TV set. So you’re able to not only frame your TV (almost 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 Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a unique mix of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Sacramento home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with whiteboards for writing notes or planning.

Don’t forget, just because that’s where you work doesn’t mean a home office has to be plain.

Barn Doors in Sacramento 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. Dividing off parts of a store or restaurant, or as a barrier between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
