The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Orlando Homes

Todd Hansen

Sliding barn doors are making a huge comeback in Orlando home design. In fact, they’ve been one of the most popular home 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 home!

Below are a few of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Orlando homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is a fantastic way. Not only does it make your bathroom look much more stylish, but it lets you utilize space in ways that other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it occupies space in either the the bathroom or the bedroom – sliding doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with bathroom doors, sliding barn doors let you have plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a great choice for a closet in the hall or foyer. Additionally, general use closets are a great place for sliding barn doors, since they’re usually out in the open to let you show the barn door’s looks.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to occupy the same places as normal doors. Wide sliding barn doors can help divide a room into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more personal mood in your Orlando home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Orlando apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are being used more as these spaces embrace modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door instead of a traditional door separating rooms, your space will feel more spacious and less segmented. In a small way, barn doors give you the best parts of a house and a townhouse.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” but they aren’t very similar to our plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a timeless style, and they block a lot of light to make your space much more comfortable.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can be both a frame and cover to a wall-mounted flat screen tv or entertainment center. So you’re able to not only create a frame for your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the TV 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 distinct blend of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re perfect in a Orlando home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for scrawling down notes or planning.

Don’t forget, just because you work there doesn’t mean your home office has to be plain.

Barn Doors in Orlando Commercial Spaces

Ok, so this isn’t a home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Separating parts of a store or cafe, or as a wall between a lobby and conference rooms – sliding barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s huge in commercial spaces.
