8 Great Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Phoenix Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a huge comeback in Phoenix home design. In fact, barn doors are been one of the most popular home fashion trends of the year. Maybe sliding barn doors have come back in a big way because of their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your home!

We’ve gathered some of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Phoenix homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the entryway between the master bedroom and bathroom is a fantastic way. Not only does it make your bathroom look wholly unique, but it lets you use space like other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – sliding doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding 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 hall closet or foyer closet. Additionally, these closets are a great place for sliding barn doors, because they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests to let you show off its unique style.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to go where doors go? Large sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more intimate mood in your Phoenix home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Phoenix condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, sliding barn doors are showing up more as these spaces catch up to modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door instead of a traditional door separating rooms, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In a small way, barn doors give you 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 traditional plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have an enduring style, and they block a great deal of outside light to make your space much more comfortable.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can work as both a frame and cover to a tv on your wall. You can not only create a frame for your TV (just 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 distinctive mix of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a Phoenix home office. Sunburst even offers barn doors with inlaid 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 Phoenix Commercial Spaces

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