The barn door concept is hot right now – interior design trend spotting

Hot interior design trend

We’ve seen the barn door concept as illustrated above popping up in remodeled homes and newly built modern homes more and more and people are in love with the concept. It is not only functional as you can block off an entire room with one door then open it up easily, but the footprint is smaller than a traditional door, and unlike pocket doors, no construction is required. We are seeing barn doors inside made of reclaimed barn wood, glass, metal, and on a recent modern home tour, we saw an old 7-up sign being used as a full sized barn door which was extremely clever.

Below is a photo gallery of some gorgeous interior barn doors that show the variety of designs and installation methods. It’s a great idea for a variety of room types, helpful for people spicing up their old home to sell or for those moving into a new home, or simply for someone looking to make a huge impact without blowing their budget. Think outside of the box and keep your eyes out for creative items that are flat and oversized that could be mounted as a sliding barn style door!
