Barn doors for a unique design
To speak frankly, there is something very rustic and classic about barn doors. Don’t you find yourself staring at the barn doors installed at the barn entrances when you take a drive down to the farm? Well, if you really find barn doors very interesting, why not integrate them with your home elements.
Introducing barn doors to your home will definitely add oodles of functionality as well as a character to your home. No matter what type of theme you wish to create in your home, barn doors will definitely support the theme as there are highly versatile and available in a wide variety. You will be glad to know that barn doors are earthy and rusty, as well as sleek and modern. In addition, the most significant feature of barn doors is that they can be used outside as well as inside.
The easiest way to introduce a barn door into your home interiors is to replace your main front wooden door with a barn door. If you have a large entrance which can accommodate two doors, you can install two sliding barn doors moving in opposite directions. Sliding barn doors are quite heavy, and secure too. On The other hand, if there is space for a single door only, you can select Dutch type of barn doors, which function like traditional doors.
Barn doors are great selections for the bedrooms also. Besides the creation of a cool look, rusty and lofty feel will also be imparted to the room. If you choose to go with the traditional earthy tones for the barn doors, exposed bricks and ceiling beams would complete the look. Alternatively, you may paint the barn door in any color you prefer depending upon the theme prevalent in the room. Barn doors painted in pristine white color are excellent for the master bedroom, whereas bright red colored barn doors may be selected for the children’s bedroom.
Another interesting idea to employ barn doors and at the same time, add a lot of punch and drama to the house is to use the barn doors for the closets. Sliding barn doors in the traditional wooden finish would make the closets the focal point of the room and enhance the décor of the room.
