The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Nashville Homes

Stefano Diotaiuti

Sliding barn doors have made a huge resurgence in Nashville interior design. In fact, barn doors are been one of the biggest interior design trends of 2018. Perhaps sliding barn doors have come back in a big way because of their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your space!

We’ve gathered a few of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in Nashville homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the barrier between the master bedroom and bathroom is a fantastic way. Not only does it make your bathroom feel wholly unique, but it lets you make use of space like other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to bathroom doors, barn doors offer plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. In addition, general use closets are the perfect spot to put barn doors, since they’re usually 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? Large sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller sections if you want to create a little more personal feeling in your Nashville home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Nashville condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, barn doors are appearing more as these spaces embrace modern home design. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space feels less confined and 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 call these “barn door shutters,” though they don’t have a lot in common with traditional plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have an enduring look and style, and they 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 be both a frame and cover to a wall-mounted TV set. This lets you not only frame your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the TV when it’s not in use to make the room look a little cozier and less high-tech.

Home Office Barn Doors

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

Don’t forget, just because you work there doesn’t mean your home office has to be boring.

Barn Doors in Nashville Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Separating parts of an office or restaurant, or as a wall between a waiting room and conference rooms – classic barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
