I wanted to start off this post with a couple of pictures from the barn doors that we have in our home.   Our doors were custom made due to the irregular sizes of our openings and due to availability (or lack of, I should say). 

There was zero availability during Hurricane Harvey ….(when we flooded).  And since we added the craftman style trim around all of our doorways and windows – we created irregular-sized openings  So, needless to say – custom it was!!

  • This is the hardware that I used for both of my barn doors (single – 6.6 ft. and double -10 ft. doors), and I  love them.  The guys who installed the double office doors had to cut down the rails (for custom sizing), but they work great.  The handles are very nice and heavy, and look stunning.  I used brushed nickel/stainless for mine, but the black are beautiful also.


  • TIP – make sure to read carefully for sliding door hardware for single or double doors and door sizes (EX:  one 48″w SINGLE door VERSUS two DOUBLE 24″w doors = 48″W).  It gets very confusing, so just triple check yourself!!

55 Incredible Barn Door Ideas: NOT Just For Farmhouse Style

I know that barn doors have been around for awhile now, but I STILL believe they are worth all the hype. Since Joanna & Chip put them on the map in home design, they continue to show up in tons of house plans and evolve:  a character of timeless decor.  Thanks to the Gaines’, we not only have stylish door options, but functional door options to problematic/awkward/tight spaces (and they are just plain fun!!)  So if you haven’t jumped on board yet to this barn door craze – beware – this post is filled with tons of inspirational eye candy & products galore.  So here are 55 Incredible Barn Door Ideas:  NOT Just For Farmhouse Style.

So what makes barn doors so special?

Chip and Joanna Gaines may be miracle workers but they simply can't do everything. So when they opened Magnolia House B&B they recruited semi-retirees Rob and Marianne Ward as potential managers. First, though, they'd have to convince the Wards to move into the adjacent carriage house. And before that could happen, they'd have to undertake a major renovation on the carriage house itself.

  1.   They can be used in any decor style – (not just for  modern farmhouse style anymore)
  2.   They can be used in tight spaces- (they move side to side vs. in an arc motion with doors on hinges)
  3.   They add architectural design to a plain wall – (you choose the door style, ranging from simplistic to ornate)
  4.   They can be used to hide items you don’t want seen – (tv’s, bookshelf clutter, pantry items, laundry, etc.)
  5.   They can be used as window treatments
  6.   They can be used as a single door, double door, or even quadruple doors
  7.   They can be used with glass to let light in
  8.   They can be used with mirrors to reflect light or use  for full-length viewing
  9.   They can be used with chalkboards to add function and whimsy
  10.  They can even be used outdoors – yep check out #9!!

SECONDLY: I have 2 barn doors in my own house: 1)  a pair that replaced french doors to our office/piano room  (see below), and 2) one in my bedroom to my master bath (see 2nd set below).  And I absolutely LOVE them and highly recommend them!

outside entry
inside room










Both of these rooms had awkward areas for opening up the doors into the room.  As a result, this awkward area became useless and really limited furniture placement.  By adding the barn doors, we actually gained usable space, allowing for better flow/better function of both rooms. 

We installed the office doors on the outside wall (entry wall- above) to gain more space inside the room, and also to add detail to the tall foyer walls.  In the bedroom we added one large door (below), and had it slide to an area that we did not use. 

It was a no-brainer for us!  Click Master Bath Remodel:  Hardware Accessories and Home Tour:  Coastal Farmhouse Master Bedroom to see more of our home.
