As the popularity of barn doors continues to grow, many interior designers and home design DIYers have discovered the functional elegance of barn doors in the bedroom. Once reserved for farmhouse-inspired home décor, barn doors of all styles, sizes, colors, and patterns now add flair, space-saving impact, and functionality to bedrooms from the entry to the closet to the ensuite bath.
Adding visual impact
Modern barn doors can add impact to any bedroom. Available in a variety of materials, barn door designs add to any aesthetic to make an impressive entrance for bedrooms of every size.
Barn doors can be hung as a single door for your bedroom’s entrance. If you have a larger opening or want to present an even more dramatic look, you can hang bipart barn doors as a grand, double door entry.
Give your bedroom barn door that extra “wow” factor by choosing a style and design that contrasts with the surrounding wall color. For example, a black patterned barn door, paired with black hardware, is sure to make a statement when installed against beige walls in a room with light hardwood floors and a black accent wall.
Choosing your style
Barn doors have come a long way from their original refurbished wood. Renin offers barn doors in many different materials, patterns, colors, shapes, and sizes: more than enough to fulfill every designer’s vision.
Choosing an unexpected pattern can add visual interest to your bedroom barn door. A barn door with a sophisticated herringbone pattern in a satin nickel finish reflects the other mixed woods tones used throughout the room.
From rustic to contemporary, industrial to traditional, Renin offers you a selection of professionally curated barn door kits that will transform bedrooms of every size, shape, and style. Or take a hands-on approach to create your own style by choosing an unfinished barn door and painting it to perfectly complement your room.
Welcoming spacious, restorative spaces
In addition to adding impact and style, barn doors are a great option where space is tight. Unlike traditional doors that swing open and closed, barn doors slide gently on a track to save you space. The gliding motion also eliminates the sounds of doors closing.
For soft close technology without the visible track, consider Renin’s patented InvisiGlide hardware kit. Your barn door will seem to float effortlessly across the wall with these micro-adjusting discs.
If you were wondering if sliding barn door kits have the ability to lock, the answer is yes! With barn door lock hardware, you can lock a barn door in place just like you would any other door.
Remembering barn doors for bathrooms, too
In addition to your bedroom entrance and closets, barn doors can be used to separate the sleeping space from an ensuite bathroom and to give a bathroom its own unique style. Adding a barn door with a privacy lock for bathroom spaces is becoming increasingly popular in today’s homes.
As with barn doors in other areas of the house, barn doors for bathrooms can be painted any color. They can be painted in a complementary color to contrast the rustic hues of hardwood floors while giving the bathroom entrance a pop of color. Because barn doors for bathrooms are visible whether open or closed, a painted barn door also can provide a contrasting accent to white walls.
Tying it all together
Barn doors can be used to tie a space together. Choose the same or similar style for a unifying effect, or, to use barn doors to tie a room together with color, simply select an unfinished barn door and paint it to perfectly complement your room. Whether inspired by a favorite artwork, a bold light fixture, vintage furniture, or a woven rug, your barn door ties together the colors, textures, and patterns of your space for a harmonious feel and flow.
Subtle updates to classic patterns and modern tints to neutral tones help personalize your barn door. A traditional Z-pattern design painted in a Shiitake color by Sherwin Williams pays homage to the barn door’s original use in a fresh, playful way.
Once the design, style, and color are set, it’s time to add the finishing touch: the hardware and accessories. Choose soft close hardware for a gentler, slower door close, privacy latches, or add handles or pulls.
Barn door hardware styles are available to satisfy every designer’s desire, from classic to modern to ornate. Finishes come in a range of choices, including black matte, burnished bronze, satin nickel, and copper.
