The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Salt Lake City Homes

Matt Thelander

Sliding barn doors have made a big resurgence in Salt Lake City interior decor. In fact, they’ve been one of the most popular interior design trends of this past year. Maybe sliding barn doors have come back in a big way because of their versatility – they can go just about anywhere in your home!

Below are some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Salt Lake 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 the bathroom look much more stylish, but it lets you play with space in ways that other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it takes up space in either the the bathroom or the bedroom – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, barn doors offer tons 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. Additionally, these closets are the perfect spot to put barn doors, since they’re usually out in the open to let you show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to go where doors go. Large sliding barn doors can help separate one of your roms into smaller spaces to create a little more intimate feeling in your Salt Lake City home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Salt Lake City condos, townhouses, and long-term apartments, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing catch up to modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space will feel less confined and segmented. In their own way, barn doors can help you get the best of both worlds of a house and a townhouse.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually call these “barn door shutters,” though they aren’t very similar to traditional plantation shutters. What they do have in common with interior window shutters are a timeless look and style, and they can block a lot of light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can act as a frame and a cover for a tv on your wall. You can not only frame your TV (almost like a letterbox feature), but you can also cover the TV when it’s not in use to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a unique blend of fun design, stunning looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Salt Lake City home office. We even offer barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with whiteboards for jotting down notes or planning.

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

Barn Doors in Salt Lake City Commercial Spaces

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