8 Great Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Tampa Homes

August 13, 2018

Sliding barn doors have made a huge comeback in Tampa interior design. In fact, barn doors are been one of the most popular home decor trends of the year. Maybe barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go nearly anywhere in your space!

We’ve gathered a few of our favorite places to use sliding barn doors in Tampa homes.

Barn Doors in Master Bathrooms

Using a sliding barn door as the doorway between the master bedroom and bathroom is one of the best ways to use them. Not only does it make your bathroom look much cozier, but it lets you play with space like other doors can’t. When you open a standard door, it occupies space in either the bedroom or the bathroom it connects to – sliding barn doors slide directly next to the wall to give you plenty of space.

Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with the bathroom, barn doors give you tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a wonderful choice for a closet in a common area like a hallway or the foyer. Plus, general use closets are the perfect place to put barn doors, because they’re usually out in the open so you can show it off.

Barn Doors as Room Dividers

Who says barn doors always have to occupy the same places as normal doors? Big sliding barn doors can help divide a room into smaller spaces if you want to create a little more personal feeling in your Tampa home.

Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Tampa apartments or townhomes, sliding barn doors are appearing more as these kinds of housing embrace modern interior fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In a small way, barn doors give you the best of both worlds of a house and a townhouse.

Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

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

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique uses we’ve seen for barn doors. Barn doors can act as both a frame and cover to a plasma screen on your wall. So you’re able to not only frame your TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the TV when it’s not in use to give your space a bit more rustic charm.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Sliding barn doors are a distinctive blend of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Tampa home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with built-in mirrors, or with dry-erase boards for scrawling down notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Tampa Commercial Spaces

All right, so this isn’t a spot in the home, but it’s on this list because barn doors are fantastic in commercial spaces. Dividing off parts of an office or eatery, or as a barrier between a waiting room and conference rooms – sliding barn doors exemplify the rustic chic trend that’s emerged in commercial spaces.
