8 Creative Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Honolulu Homes08/13/2018Darren Wong 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. Perhaps the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is due to their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your space! These are a few of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in Honolulu homes. Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms Utilizing 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 the bathroom look wholly unique, but it lets you utilize 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. Sliding 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 it off. 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 private feeling in your Honolulu home. Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement In Honolulu apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are being used 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 let you get the best of both worlds of a house and a townhouse. Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment We usually call these “barn door shutters,” even if 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. Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center This is one of the more unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can act 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 the room look a little cozier and less high-tech. Home Office Sliding Barn Doors Barn doors are a distinctive mix of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re perfect in a Honolulu home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for scrawling down notes or planning. Keep in mind, 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 – sliding barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
