The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Minneapolis Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a big resurgence in Minneapolis home decor. In fact, barn doors are been one of the most popular home fashion trends of the year. Maybe barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your house!

Below are some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Minneapolis homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the barrier 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 utilize space like other doors don’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it occupies space in either the bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – barn doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Just like 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 hall closet or foyer closet. In addition, general use closets are the perfect place to put barn doors, since they’re usually out in the open so you can show it off.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always need to occupy the same places as normal doors? Wide sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller sections to create a little more personal mood in your Minneapolis home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Minneapolis condos or apartments, sliding barn doors are showing up more as these spaces embrace modern interior design. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space will feel less confined and segmented. In their own way, barn doors give you the best of both worlds 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 most plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a lasting style, and they block a great deal of light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique uses we’ve seen for barn doors. Barn doors can act as a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted flat screen tv or entertainment center. This lets you not only create a frame for your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the screen when it’s not in use to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinctive blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Minneapolis home office. Sunburst even offers barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for writing notes or planning.

Keep in mind, just because you work there doesn’t mean a home office has to be boring.

Barn Doors in Minneapolis Commercial Spaces

All right, 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 wall between a waiting room and conference rooms – sliding barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
