Though some home fads come and go, rustic chic décor has maintained a rare staying power in interior design.
One cottage cozy staple that is currently topping the “must have” list is the interior barn door. This versatile sliding piece has made its way from the country farm into homes of all styles, and manages to make a statement while still being gloriously space saving.
Looking for inspiration to try this latest design trend? These five beautiful barn doors will make you wish you lived on a farm…or will at least inspire you to introduce some country chic into your own home.
1. Bucolic Bedroom
Wrought iron detailing on this natural wood door gives a sophisticated take on farmhouse elegance. Whether opened or closed, it is the ultimate statement piece, and lends a country cottage vibe to a master or guest bedroom.
2. Powder Room Perfection
Rustic doesn’t mean old-fashioned! A reclaimed wood sliding door contrasts nicely against a remodeled bathroom’s modern tiling and lighting. Plus, it saves precious powder room space that’s typically wasted by a standard hinged door.
3. Easy Space Saver
You don’t need to have your own reclaimed wood dealer to get in on the barn door trend. The Masonite® Knotty Alder Rustic Barn Door Kit ($499) — a Home Depot exclusive — includes all the hardware you need to assemble this classic wood barn door over an existing door opening. With the affordable price and easy assembly, this gorgeous set has made an aspirational trend achievable.
4. Diversifying the Open Concept
It can be tricky to set the office apart from the rest of your home without giving it the “keep out” vibe of a stuffy study. This sliding door with clean lines gives the office temporary seclusion for the purpose of working on deadline or taking conference calls, but opens to return to airy and welcoming when the workday is over.
5. Multi-Use Home Office
