8 Innovative Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in New Brunswick Homes

Mike Horn

Sliding barn doors are making a big comeback in New Brunswick interior fashion. In fact, barn doors are been one of the biggest interior design trends of 2018. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback because of their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your house!

Here are some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in New Brunswick homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is our favorite way to use them. Not only does it make the bathroom feel wholly unique, but it lets you play with space like other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – sliding doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, barn doors offer tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a closet in the hall or foyer. In addition, these closets are a great spot for sliding barn doors, since they’re typically out in the open so you can show it off.

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 separate one of your roms into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more private mood in your New Brunswick home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In New Brunswick apartments or townhomes, barn doors are appearing more as these spaces catch up to modern home design. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space feels less confined and segmented. In their own small way, barn doors can help you get the best parts of a house and a townhouse.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” though they don’t have much in common with traditional plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a timeless style, and the ability to block a great deal of outside light to make your home cool and comfy.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can be both a frame and cover to a tv on your wall. You can not only frame the TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the screen when it’s not in use to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding doors are a distinct mix of fun design, stylish looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a New Brunswick home office. Sunburst even offers barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for jotting down notes or planning.

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

Barn Doors in New Brunswick Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a home, but it’s worth mentioning how wonderfully barn doors work in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of an office or eatery, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – sliding barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
