Space-Saving Style: Brilliant Barn Doors

Tara Deans, Raleigh Studio Manager

Barn doors have soared in popularity for their stylishness and practicality. They make a huge impact and can anchor the design style of any room. The door below is a feature of the Modern Farmhouse design of our Summerside model, in Holding Village, Raleigh. The simple Shaker style of this door looks fabulous with the kitchen’s shiplap boards. Using this door on the pantry is also a clever space saver. A traditional door would swing into the kitchen, whereas the sliding barn door doesn’t impede work flow.

Barn doors can work with almost any style. This next door appears as part of a French Country design. The wrought iron and beaded paneling tie in nicely with the elegant bath and master bedroom suite. It’s also a practical way to keep the door from swinging into the stunning frameless shower or blocking the view of this grand bath in our Hanover model at Amberly Estates in Raleigh.

How fun is this one? A simple flat door panel, with striped wallpaper added for a unique touch. This door is at the top of the stairs, another area where barn doors are a great way to save space from a door that would swing into the landing. What a wonderful impression as your visitors enter your home: A door transformed into a piece of art! See this one in our Mid-century modern designed Thornton model, at The Towns of Cheswick in Raleigh.
