White & Weathered

To maximize character in your master bedroom, consider a high-style sliding barn door for entry into the en suite bathroom. Here, a bright and airy bedroom is home to a white, weathered barn door that accompanies the light color palette throughout.

Top-Notch Glam

We’re giving all the heart eyes to these on-trend, modern barn doors. As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, the pair serve not only as a sound barrier between the living room and children’s playroom, but also as a decorative focal piece.

Stylish Closet System

In most cases, sliding barn doors are a great (and pretty!) alternative to standard doors. Conceal the chaos and clutter of closets with a sliding door system, like the gorgeous pale-gray ones seen in this master bedroom.

Chevron Chic

A light pine-wood barn door complements a wooden focal wall in this chic master retreat. The chevron pattern adds major style and modern flair to the space.

Stylish Room Divider

Gone are the days of cheap, folding room dividers. A gray-toned wooden door slides along a trendy industrial track to separate the living room from the home gym in a stylish way.

Center of Attention

Never listen to a slamming bedroom door again with the installation of a sliding door system. This 5-foot wide barn door complements the blue color scheme of the bunk room it conceals.

Access With Ease

This living room is full of playful and inviting personality like cowboy hats, a guitar and a gorgeous barn door. Simply pull the black metal handle to reveal the small powder room behind.

Meet in the Middle

It’s true what they say — two is better than one. Instead of a single sliding door, this transitional bedroom features two wooden panels that serve as decor whether open or shut.

Farmhouse Charm

Make any space feel larger with the addition of a rich, statement-piece barn door. The deep hue adds warmth to the room while staying true to its rustic-style roots.

Industrial Modern

To go from this bedroom to its adjoining bathroom, just slide open the industrial-chic, steel barn door. The innovative design maximizes the bathroom space without losing square footage from a swinging door.

Dreamy Focal Piece

The vertical boards of the crisp-white barn doors add length to the wall while also drawing the eye up to the matching paneled ceiling. The industrial-black hardware pops against the white doors, while keeping the overall style of the room fresh and contemporary.

Rich Pantry Entry

As a gathering spot in the home, you want to make sure the kitchen is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also fully functional. Hide those bags of chips and boxes of cereal with an easy-to-slide door system. A modern-rustic barn door is a beautiful nod to the farmhouse style of this home’s kitchen.

Reclaimed Space Saver

Easily turn a flea market find into a beautiful, sliding-door masterpiece with the installation of a track system. A reclaimed panel door adds just the right amount of vintage charm to this space, without going overboard.

One-of-a-Kind Elegance

Not all barn-style doors have to be heavy and made of wood. Stunning, copper-paneled doors are encased by a sleek black frame to create a unique, show-stopping bathroom entry in this contemporary home.

Sky Blue Entry

Sliding doors are the perfect way to conceal functional spaces like a pantry or storage area. As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, these sky-blue doors are accented with trendy industrial hardware to give the duo a modern-yet-chic upgrade.

Modern Alternative

The classic, wooden barn door just got a major upgrade with a more modern look. These opaque glass doors still allow for privacy when needed, but also allow light to filter through the room.

Warm & Inviting Statement Piece

An oversized wooden barn door serves as a chic statement piece against the back wall in this living area. A walnut hue on the door nicely complements the warmth of the ceiling.

Decorative Privacy Doors

Ditch the privacy curtains and opt for trendy sliding barn doors instead. A pair of deep-black doors open up this work area to the home’s expansive views, but can also close off when privacy is desired.

Barn-Style Beauty

A pair of antique screen doors serve as the entry to this modern home’s spacious pantry. These barn-style sliding doors are the perfect addition to any farmhouse-inspired space.

Hand-Crafted Charisma

If you love the idea of a sliding barn door but not totally into all things rustic, a contemporary take on the popular trend is the way to go. The chevron pattern and rich, warm colors on the panel add tons of visual interest and texture to this modern hallway.
