8 Great Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in San Antonio Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a big resurgence in San Antonio home design. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular interior fashion trends of 2018. Perhaps sliding barn doors have come back in a big way due to their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your space!

Here are some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in San Antonio homes.

Sliding Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is a fantastic way. Not only does it make your bathroom look much cozier, but it lets you play with 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 barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, sliding barn doors offer tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a great choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. Additionally, general use closets are the perfect place to put barn doors, because they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show off its unique style.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to occupy the same places as normal doors? Large sliding barn doors can help separate one of your roms into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more personal mood in your San Antonio home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In San Antonio condos or apartments, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these spaces catch up to modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, 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 an apartment.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” though they aren’t very similar to our plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a timeless style, and they block a lot of light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

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 plasma screen on your wall. This lets you not only frame the TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the TV 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 mix of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re perfect in a San Antonio home office. Sunburst even offers sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for writing notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in San Antonio Commercial Spaces

Ok, 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 an office or restaurant, or as a barrier between a lobby and conference rooms – classic barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
