The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Houston Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a big resurgence in Houston interior fashion. In fact, they’ve been one of the biggest home fashion trends of 2018. Maybe barn doors are making a comeback because of their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your house!

We’ve gathered a few of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Houston homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the barrier between the master bedroom and bathroom is one of the best ways to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom feel 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 bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – sliding doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to the bathroom, sliding barn doors offer plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a great choice for a closet in the hall or foyer. In addition, these closets are a great place for sliding barn doors, because they’re typically out in the open so you can show off its unique style.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always have to go where doors go. Big sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller spaces to create a little more intimate feeling in your Houston home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Houston apartments or townhomes, barn doors are appearing more as these spaces catch up to modern interior design. With a sliding barn door instead of a traditional door separating rooms, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In their own way, barn doors let you get the best of both worlds of a house and an apartment.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” even if they aren’t very similar to interior plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a timeless look and style, and they can block a great deal of light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can act as both a frame and cover to a wall-mounted TV set. So you’re able to not only create a frame for your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the TV when you’re not using it to make the room look a little cozier and less high-tech.

Home Office Barn Doors

Barn doors are a unique mix of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re perfect in a Houston 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 plain.

Sliding Barn Doors in Houston Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Dividing off 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.
