5 Contemporary Barn Doors For Everyday Living
Modern barn doors are notably sleeker than traditional barn doors, with a sharper look and feel. They are often “custom-built with high-end materials”, as Sandra Ward puts it. Check out this round up of 5 Contemporary Sliding Barn Doors for Everyday Living.
1. SLIDING BARN/SCREEN DOOR

This sliding barn/screen door makes for an excellent alternative to an average screen door. There is no denying that this door's red wood commands your attention in this kitchen space. As you can see, the execution of this barn door design was done mindfully as the barn door hardware extends from the space between the wall and refrigerator - making it easy to slide the door without compromise.
2. POLAR OPPOSITES ATTRACT

From the outside looking in, the living room of this home appears to be in a world of its own. A sliding barn door with four see-through cutouts separates the living room and another room, which could be a study.
3. MASTER BATHROOM OF GRANDEUR

A white barn door is an excellent way to complement marble walls and countertops of a bathroom - or any room. The colors of this bathroom work off a color palette of gray and white. The solid white barn door closes off the room with pristine elegance, and makes for a pleasant entryway.
4. SCARLET AND GRAY LIVING SPACE

The design of this barn door is very intriguing. This door features carved straight lines rather than a solid wood panel.
5. WIDE-BODIED BARN DOOR

This dining room looks like it belongs in an art gallery. We’ve covered wood slab furniture before and have noted that wood slab furniture and sliding barn doors typically go well with each other. The textures of this wood slab dining table and sliding barn door are intentionally paired to create points of distinction. In contrast to the other pieces of this dining room, the wide-bodied barn door has an espresso wood finish that separates itself from the setting completely.
In our last post, we demonstrated how an infinite amount of creativity can be experimented with by using barn door styles for an extension for self-expression. That still holds true with the examples shown in this post.
