Barn doors inside homes are a rising trend. Using appropriate hardware, barn doors are fairly easy to mount to the wall, and they give the room a new look. They are perfect for creating a flow throughout the house, as the rooms they connect can be closed off at will. Plus, barn doors need less space then a traditional interior door, as they go sideways against the wall, instead of out into the room. But where should you put them inside your house? Keep reading to find out. 


Closets are a great spot for barn doors. Closet doors are often already bifold or a swing door, but barn doors are a nice addition. They look clean, classic, and can give a bit of edge to the bedroom. To conceal your closet, you just slide the door, and your room instantly looks neater. You can even automate the doors, so when you approach, they open, and when you walk away, they close.

Plus, you can get a door that matches your room. Looking for a rustic room? Get a natural looking wooden barn door, to give it that rustic feel. Or you can paint the door the same colors as the wall or doorframe, to make it blend with the wall. You can even get a completely different color as a complimentary piece.


In a time when a lot of people have work from home jobs, you want to have a bit of privacy in your home office.

Therefore, add sliding barn doors onto your list of home office ideas, as it gives an option to leave the door opened or closed.

If you have a large entryway, you can get double barn doors, opening one or both as needed. Additionally, you can automate your sliding doors. This way, when you approach the door, it opens for you, which is helpful when bringing in groceries or platters of food.


In a bedroom, you want it to fit a certain aesthetic, and all your dream bedroom ideas. Bedroom décor is often comfy, cozy, and somewhere you can relax and or sleep. Barn doors are perfect, they can fit the theme of the rest of the room, and be hidden when they are open. Plus, locks can be installed on the door for ease of use and privacy.
