The Best Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Colorado Springs Homes

Gary Harding

Sliding barn doors have made a big comeback in Colorado Springs interior fashion. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the biggest interior fashion trends of this past year. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback because of their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your home!

These are a few of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Colorado Springs homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the barrier 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 utilize 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 – sliding barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Similar to bathroom doors, barn doors give you tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a closet in the hall or foyer. Additionally, these closets are a great place for sliding barn doors, since they’re usually in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show the barn door’s looks.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to go where doors go. Big sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller sections to create a little more intimate mood in your Colorado Springs home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Colorado Springs apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these spaces embrace modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your condo, your space will feel less confined and segmented. In their own small way, barn doors give you the best of both worlds of a house and an apartment.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” even if they aren’t very similar to interior plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a timeless style, and they can block a great deal of light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can be a frame and a cover for a tv on your wall. So you’re able to not only frame the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the screen when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinctive mix of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a Colorado Springs home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for scrawling down notes or planning.

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

Barn Doors in Colorado Springs Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of a store or eatery, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
