The Best Spots for Sliding Barn Doors in Cincinnati Homes

Lisa Renee Nieberding

Sliding barn doors have made a huge resurgence in Cincinnati interior fashion. In fact, sliding barn doors have been one of the most popular home decor trends of the year. Perhaps barn doors are making a comeback due to their versatility – they can go almost anywhere in your space!

We’ve gathered some of our favorite spots to use sliding barn doors in Cincinnati homes.

Sliding 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 your bathroom look wholly unique, but it lets you use space like other doors don’t. When you open most bathroom doors, it occupies space in either the bathroom or the bedroom that leads to it – barn doors stay flush against the wall and give you plenty of space.

Sliding Barn Doors as Closet Doors

Like with bathroom doors, sliding barn doors offer tons of extra space when used as a closet door. That makes them a perfect choice for a hall closet or foyer closet. In addition, general use closets are the perfect spot to put barn doors, since they’re usually out in the open so you can show the barn door’s looks.

Sliding Barn Doors as Room Dividers

No one said barn doors have to occupy the same places as normal doors. Big sliding barn doors can help divide a room into smaller spaces to create a little more intimate mood in your Cincinnati home.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Modern Door Replacement

In Cincinnati apartments or townhomes, barn doors are being used more as these kinds of housing embrace modern home fashion. With a sliding barn door in your space, your space feels more spacious and less segmented. In their own way, barn doors give you the best parts of a house and a condo.

Sliding Barn Doors as a Window Treatment

We usually just call these kind of barn doors “barn door shutters,” but they don’t have much in common with interior plantation shutters. What they do share with interior window shutters are a timeless style, and the ability to block a great deal of light to keep your interior cool and inviting.

Sliding Barn Doors Framing an Entertainment Center

This is actually one of the most unique barn door installations we’ve done. Barn doors can work as both a frame and cover to a tv on your wall. This lets you not only frame the TV (just like a letterbox feature), but you can also hide the screen when you’re not using it to make your space a little more rustic.

Home Office Sliding Barn Doors

Barn doors are a distinct mix of fun design, stylish looks, and usability, so they’re great in a Cincinnati home office. We even offer sliding barn doors with inlaid mirrors, or with whiteboards for scrawling down notes or planning.

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

Sliding Barn Doors in Cincinnati Commercial Spaces

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