Curtis Orton

Sliding barn doors are making a huge comeback in San Jose home fashion. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular home fashion trends of the year. Maybe the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is because of their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your house!

Below are a few of our favorite ways to use sliding barn doors in San Jose homes.

Sliding 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 your bathroom feel much cozier, but it lets you use space in ways that other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it occupies space in either the the bathroom or the bedroom – sliding doors slide directly next to the wall to give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with bathroom doors, barn doors let you have plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a perfect choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. Plus, general use closets are a great spot for sliding barn doors, because they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests to let you show it off.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always have to go where doors go. Large sliding barn doors can help divide a room into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more personal mood in your San Jose home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In San Jose apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are being used more as these kinds of housing embrace 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 condo.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually refer to barn doors on windows as “barn door shutters,” even if they don’t have much in common with interior plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a timeless look and 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 ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can work as a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted TV set. This lets you not only create a frame for the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the monitor when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding doors are a unique blend of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re great in a San Jose home office. We even offer barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with whiteboards for writing notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in San Jose Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but it’s worth mentioning how wonderfully barn doors work in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of a store or cafe, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – classic barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
