There are so many things to like about interior barn doors.
The rustic look, the metal hardware and the simple nature of how they work. If you don’t have room for a hinged door and don’t want to tear into your wall to insert a pocket door, a barn door is your answer.
Not to mention it looks great in any decor. Here are some pics and info from my most recent barn door project.
Barn Door Project- The Problem
My customer had an old rickety metal bifold closet right as you walk into her front door. Her house is modern with white walls so we thought a bright-colored barn door would add visual interest to the foyer.
We started searching for old doors and came across this five panel door from 1910 that was in an old church on Craigslist.
The client’s other doors were white with one panel frosted glass so my thought was to change out the panel inserts to frosted glass.
This proved to be a very extensive project by itself, but the final result was worth it. After getting the door ready, the hardware was assembled and painted with a flat black to really stand out against the white walls.
The end result dramatically changed the space that used to house the old bifold door. I enjoyed this project and look forward to my next barn door project coming up.
