8 Creative Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Honolulu Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a big comeback in Honolulu home design. In fact, they’ve been one of the biggest home design trends of the year. Maybe barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your house!

These are a few of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Honolulu homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the entryway between the master bedroom and bathroom is a fantastic way. Not only does it make the bathroom look wholly unique, but it lets you play with space in ways that other doors don’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it occupies space in either the bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – sliding doors stay flush against the wall to give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Just like bathroom doors, sliding barn doors give you plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a fantastic choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. Plus, general use closets are the perfect place to put barn doors, since they’re usually out in the open so you can show off its unique style.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to go where doors go. Large sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller spaces to create a little more personal feeling in your Honolulu home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Honolulu apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these spaces catch up to modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In their own way, barn doors can help you get the best of both worlds 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 traditional plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a lasting look and style, and they can block a great deal of outside light to make your space much more comfortable.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can work as a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted TV set. So you’re able to not only frame the TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the monitor when you’re not using it to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinct mix of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Honolulu home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for jotting down notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Honolulu Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Separating parts of a store or cafe, or as a barrier between a lobby and conference rooms – classic barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
