The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Boston Homes

Holly Perron

Sliding barn doors have made a huge comeback in Boston interior fashion. In fact, barn doors are been one of the most popular interior decor trends of this past year. Maybe the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is because of their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your house!

Here are a few of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Boston homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the entryway between the master bedroom and bathroom is one of the best ways to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom look wholly unique, but it lets you play with space like 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 barn doors stay flush against the wall to 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 fantastic choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. Additionally, these closets are the perfect spot to put barn doors, because they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show off its unique style.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always need to go where doors go? Big sliding barn doors can help divide one of your roms into smaller sections to create a little more personal mood in your Boston home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Boston condos or apartments, barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing embrace modern home design. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In their own way, barn doors let you get the best parts 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 most plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have an enduring style, and they can block a great deal of 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 be a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted flat screen tv or entertainment center. So you’re able to not only create a frame for the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the monitor when it’s not in use to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a unique blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re perfect in a Boston home office. We even offer barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for writing notes or planning.

Remember, just because you work there doesn’t mean your home office has to be plain.

Barn Doors in Boston Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but we’re mentioning it because barn doors look downright awesome in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of a store or restaurant, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – sliding barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s emerged in commercial spaces.
