One of the pieces our clients and visitors to our storefront on Canton Street ask us about all the time is the custom made barn doors we incorporate into so many of our designs. And we understand why! They’re one of the most beautiful statement pieces you can put in your home. And what better way to incorporate a little farmhouse feel than by bringing in handcrafted barn doors?

As versatile as they are beautiful, barn doors are an incredible addition to any room in your home. Don’t believe me? Check out six ways you can incorporate barn doors around your home!

Bedroom. Add a little texture to your bedroom by incorporating barn doors into the space. Use them to separate your master bath from your bedroom or as a covering for your closet. Leave the natural wood for a more simplistic and rustic feel or cover yours in a coat of paint to compliment the colors in your room.

Office. Use barn doors as a unique way to close off your workspace or office from the rest of your home. Not only do they give you some privacy to work, they also give you a built in piece of décor for your hallway. Don’t have the budget for full size barn doors? Have smaller ones built as a covering for your bookshelves.

Kitchen. Finish off your farmhouse style kitchen by adding a barn door to the space. Use it as an entryway for your pantry to hide away some of your kitchen extras. Consider painting the door in a soft hue to add a simple pop of color to a more neutral toned kitchen.

Living Room. A living room is a great place to get creative with your use of barn doors. While a more open floor plan may not lend itself to traditional barn doors, you can still incorporate smaller, more unique sets into your living room. Add them as statement piece to cover some of your shelving or to encase your television when not in use.

Playroom. Every mom knows that one of the most difficult spaces to deal with in your home is your child’s playroom. Barn doors are a great way to cover up areas of mess with a little style! Use bolder, fun colors to compliment your kids’ space and consider a lighter weight to make them easier to open and close for your little ones.

Dining Room. Use double barn doors to flank the entryway of the more formal dining area in your home. Close them off for more private dining or leave them open to create a statement around the entryway. Keep the natural wood to bring a little farmhouse elegance to the room.
