“Some walls were just made to have a barn door.”
A recent homeowner of ours at McNeill Burbank declared these wise design words during a walkthrough, and we could not agree more. The barn door has been a timeless accent in our homes since the beginning and it still proves to be a hot trend today. We love the functionality of a sliding door as well as the aesthetics it offers. Our homeowners have placed barn doors in various locations including pantries, studies, bath suites and mudrooms. The possibilities of where to hang a barn door seem endless!
More intriguing are the design elements folks are choosing to personalize their accent door. Solid, French and reclaimed wood styles have been chosen based on privacy, natural light and theme of a space. Hardware finishes have ranged from matte black, dark bronze, shiny chrome and stainless steel. Color selections have covered the spectrum from crisp whites, pretty blues, striking reds and bold grays. Essentially, we have seen a barn door thrive in spaces that speak from mid-century modern to farmhouse chic. How will YOU design your next barn door?
