The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Jacksonville Homes

Trevis Bruce

Sliding barn doors are making a big comeback in Jacksonville interior design. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular interior decor trends of 2018. Maybe barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your space!

We’ve gathered some of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in Jacksonville 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 more stylish, 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 – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to 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 the hall or foyer. Additionally, general use closets are the perfect place to put barn doors, since they’re typically out in the open to let you show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always 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 Jacksonville home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Jacksonville 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 townhouse.

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 our plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a lasting style, and they block a lot of light to make your home cool and comfy.

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

Sliding barn doors are a distinct mix of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re perfect in a Jacksonville home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for scrawling 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 Jacksonville 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 an office or restaurant, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
