Tyler Jorgensen

Sliding barn doors have made a huge comeback in Oklahoma City home decor. In fact, barn doors are been one of the biggest home decor trends of this past year. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your home!

Below are some of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Oklahoma City homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Utilizing a sliding barn door as the entryway between the master bedroom and bathroom is our favorite way to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom feel much more stylish, but it lets you utilize space like other doors don’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – sliding doors slide directly next to the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, sliding barn doors offer plenty of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a fantastic choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. In addition, these closets are the perfect place for sliding barn doors, because they’re typically in rooms where you’ll have guests so you can show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors need to go where doors go. Big sliding barn doors can help divide a room into smaller sections if you want to create a little more intimate mood in your Oklahoma City home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Oklahoma City apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing embrace modern interior 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 let you get the best parts of a house and a condo.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” though they aren’t very similar to our plantation shutters. But they are similar to shutters in that they have a lasting look and style, and the ability to block a great deal of light to make your home cool and comfy.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is one of the more unique ways we’ve seen barn doors used. Barn doors can work as a frame and a cover for a wall-mounted TV set. You can not only create a frame for your TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the screen when you’re not using it to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinctive mix of fun design, stunning looks, and practicality, so they’re perfect in a Oklahoma City home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for writing notes or planning.

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

Barn Doors in Oklahoma City Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a home, but we’re mentioning it because barn doors look downright awesome in commercial spaces. Separating parts of a store or eatery, or as a wall between a waiting room and conference rooms – classic barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s booming in commercial spaces.
