The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Cleveland Homes

Nate Gromen

Sliding barn doors have made a huge comeback in Cleveland home design. In fact, they’ve been one of the biggest home design trends of the year. Maybe barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your house!

We’ve gathered a few of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Cleveland homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is our favorite way to use them. Not only does it make the bathroom look wholly unique, but it lets you use space like other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – sliding doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Just like the bathroom, sliding barn doors offer plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. Plus, general use closets are the perfect spot for sliding barn doors, because they’re usually out in the open so you can show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to occupy the same places as normal doors. Large sliding barn doors can help separate a room into smaller sections to create a little more private feeling in your Cleveland home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Cleveland condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing embrace modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door instead of a traditional door separating rooms, your space will feel less confined and segmented. In a small way, barn doors can help you get the best parts of a house and an apartment.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” even if they aren’t very similar to our plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a timeless look and style, and the ability to block a lot of light to make your space much more comfortable.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can be a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted TV set. This lets you not only frame your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the monitor when it’s not in use to make the room look a little cozier and less high-tech.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinctive mix of fun design, stylish looks, and practicality, so they’re right at home in a Cleveland home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for scrawling down notes or planning.

Remember, just because that’s where you work doesn’t mean a home office has to be boring.

Barn Doors in Cleveland 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 a store or restaurant, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – interior barn doors embrace the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
