8 Stylish Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Kingsport Homes

August 13, 2018

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

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 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 bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to 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 a common area like a hallway or the foyer. In addition, 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

Who says barn doors always have to go where doors go. Wide 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 let you get the best of both worlds of a house and a condo.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually refer to barn doors on windows as “barn door shutters,” but they aren’t very similar to 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. This lets you 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 Barn Doors

Barn doors are a unique blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re perfect 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.

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 eatery, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
