Rustic chic interiors are on the rise. Perhaps we have Joanna Gaines to thank for that – shiplap anyone? Some of the most functional and beautiful elements often featured in rustic spaces are barn doors. Since their introduction from the exterior to the interior, barn doors have continued to evolve to span all design aesthetics – from neutral, reclaimed woods, to industrial steel and metal, and even to brightly colored modern materials. They don’t have to be rustic anymore – there is truly an option for every type of decor and taste.
Beyond the design aspect, the versatility of barn doors makes them even more appealing. Once installed, barn doors function like any sliding or pocket door – they just pack a lot more visual punch. It is a great solution for small spaces or to cover up any unsightly views (such as a laundry room or pantry) or rooms that require some privacy like a bathroom.
There are a variety of barn door options available for sale on Etsy and you can search for sellers close to you to keep shipping costs low. Check them out here.
