Jacob Hayes

Sliding barn doors are making a big resurgence in Kingsport home fashion. In fact, barn doors are been one of the most popular interior decor trends of the year. Maybe sliding barn doors have come back in a big way due to their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your house!

These are some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Kingsport homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is one of the best ways to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom feel much cozier, 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 stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with bathroom doors, barn doors give you plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a perfect choice for a closet in the hall or foyer. Additionally, these closets are a great spot for sliding barn doors, since they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show it off.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to go where doors go. Big sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller spaces to create a little more private feeling in your Kingsport home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Kingsport condos or apartments, barn doors are being used more as these spaces embrace modern interior design. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In their own small way, barn doors can help you get the best of both worlds of a house and a townhouse.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” even if they don’t have a lot in common with most plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have an enduring look and style, and they block a lot of light to make your home cool and comfy.

Sliding 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 plasma screen on your wall. You can not only frame the TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the TV when you’re not using it to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a unique blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Kingsport home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for writing notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Kingsport Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but it’s worth mentioning how wonderfully barn doors work in commercial spaces. Separating parts of a store or restaurant, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
