The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Destin Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a big resurgence in Destin interior decor. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular home design trends of this past year. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback because of their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your space!

Below are a few of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in Destin 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 look much more stylish, but it lets you use space in ways that other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – barn doors slide directly next to the wall to give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with bathroom doors, sliding barn doors give you tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. In addition, general use closets are a great place to put barn doors, since they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests to let you show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always have to go where doors go? Big sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more personal mood in your Destin home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Destin condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, sliding barn doors are being used more as these spaces embrace modern home design. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In a small way, barn doors let you get the best parts 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,” though they aren’t very similar to most plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have an enduring style, and the ability to block a great deal of 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. This lets you not only create a frame for the TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the monitor when you’re not using it to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinct blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Destin home office. We even offer barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for writing notes or planning.

Keep in mind, just because you work there doesn’t mean your home office has to be plain.

Sliding Barn Doors in Destin Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of an office or restaurant, or as a wall between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s emerged in commercial spaces.
