8 Stylish Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Indianapolis Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a big comeback in Indianapolis home decor. In fact, sliding barn doors have 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 almost anywhere in your space!

Here are a few of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Indianapolis homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the entryway between the master bedroom and bathroom is our favorite way to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom feel much cozier, but it lets you play with space in ways that other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bathroom or the bedroom – barn doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to bathroom doors, barn doors let you have tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. In addition, these closets are a great place for sliding barn doors, since they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show off its unique style.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to occupy the same places as normal doors? Wide sliding barn doors can help separate one of your roms into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more personal mood in your Indianapolis home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Indianapolis condos or apartments, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing embrace modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space will feel less confined and segmented. In their own small way, barn doors let you get the best of both worlds of a house and a condo.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” though they aren’t very similar to traditional plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are an enduring look and style, and they block a lot of outside light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

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 a frame and a cover for a tv on your wall. So you’re able to not only create a frame for the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the TV when it’s not in use to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a unique blend of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a Indianapolis home office. We even offer barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with whiteboards for jotting down notes or planning.

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

Barn Doors in Indianapolis 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 an office or restaurant, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s emerged in commercial spaces.
