Interior trend: Sliding barn doors

sliding barn doors
Not too long ago I photographed a beautiful home with a custom made barn-style sliding door. This is such a clever design feature and adds a real wow factor. Of course it’s also a great way to save on space and conceal areas if need be.

From single to double doors, industrial steel and glass to rustic raw wood… the options are endless. I’ve gathered a variety of different styles for inspiration. What are your thoughts on this look?

      Hi Melinda

      Thanks so much for the compliment! ๐Ÿ™‚
      The door in the first image was designed by Gideon of Roos Design. All the hardware and steel fittings were custom made.
