The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Southern California Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a huge comeback in Southern California interior fashion. In fact, barn doors are been one of the most popular interior fashion trends of this past year. Maybe the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is due to their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your space!

Below are some of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Southern California homes.

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 look much cozier, but it lets you use space like other doors don’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it takes up space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – sliding barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, barn doors let you have 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, general use closets are the perfect place for sliding barn doors, since they’re typically out in the open to let you show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to go where doors go? Big sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller spaces to create a little more private feeling in your Southern California home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Southern California condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, barn doors are showing up more as these spaces embrace modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In their own small way, barn doors give you the best parts of a house and a condo.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” even if they aren’t very similar to our plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a lasting style, and they block a lot of light to make your home cool and comfy.

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique uses we’ve seen for barn doors. Barn doors can be a frame and a cover for a tv on your wall. This lets you not only create a frame for the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the screen when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinctive mix of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Southern California home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for jotting down notes or planning.

Don’t forget, just because you work there doesn’t mean a home office has to be boring.

Barn Doors in Southern California 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 an office or eatery, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
