Indoor Sliding Barn Doors – The Edit


Two words: BARN DOOR!


As an avid home renovations follower and with all the amazing renovation TV shows that are on now, you have no doubt caught on to the indoor barn door trend. They not only look fabulous but are practical in a multitude of situations!

While some say the trend is on its way out the door (pun intended!), I think they look great and are really practical – if it ain’t broke – don’t fix it, as the old adage goes!

Aside from their obvious aesthetic appeal, the fact that they can come in a variety of styles, sizes and colors means that they are worth considering when you are looking at updating or building your own home!

  • Cost can be significantly more than a regular door.
  • Depending on the hardware you use – ease of use may not be the greatest if its a door you have to open and close often.

So what do you think? Love it or hate it? I’m still in favor of the doors to stay and love it in not only in its traditional timber form but also the frosted glass sliding door like these beauties:
