8 Innovative Uses for Sliding Barn Doors in Miami Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a huge resurgence in Miami interior decor. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the biggest interior fashion trends of the year. Perhaps the reason barn doors have made such a big splash is due to their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your house!

Here are some of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Miami 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 the bathroom feel much more stylish, but it lets you make use of 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 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 plenty 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 a great spot for sliding barn doors, because they’re typically out in the open so you can show the barn door’s looks.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

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

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Miami apartments or townhomes, barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing catch up to modern home design. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In their own way, barn doors give you the best of both worlds of a house and a townhouse.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” even if they don’t have a lot in common with interior plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are a timeless look and style, and they can block a lot of light to make your home cool and comfy.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can act as a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted TV set. So you’re able to not only frame the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the monitor when you’re not using it to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding doors are a distinct blend of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a Miami home office. We even offer barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for scrawling down notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Miami Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of an office or restaurant, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – interior barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
