The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Fort Myers Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors are making a big resurgence in Fort Myers interior design. In fact, they’ve been one of the most popular interior design trends of this past year. Perhaps sliding barn doors have come back in a big way because of their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your house!

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is a fantastic way. Not only does it make your bathroom look wholly unique, but it lets you utilize space like other doors can’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it occupies 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

Like with the bathroom, sliding 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 the hall or foyer. In addition, these closets are the perfect place for sliding barn doors, since they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show off its unique style.

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 a room into smaller sections if you want to create a little more intimate feeling in your Fort Myers home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Fort Myers condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, barn doors are being used more as these kinds of housing embrace modern interior design. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In their own small way, barn doors can help you get the best parts of a house and an apartment.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” though they aren’t very similar to our plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a timeless look and style, and they can block a lot of light to make your home cool and comfy.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can work as a frame and a cover for a plasma screen on your wall. So you’re able to not only frame the TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the TV when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinct mix of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re right at home in a Fort Myers home office. We even offer barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for scrawling down notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Fort Myers Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but we’re mentioning it because barn doors look downright awesome in commercial spaces. Separating parts of a store or restaurant, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s emerged in commercial spaces.
