Barn Door Craze!!!
What’s with the barn door craze?? Barn doors in place of French doors, or sliding doors, or room dividers are a continuing hot trend in 2019. Outdated dividers are often replaced with barn doors as are the French doors that were so popular in the '80s and '90s. Even the quaint pocket doors of days gone by have fallen prey to the barn door craze
Homes that mentioned having barn doors in their listing description have sold on average 13% above expected values. Prospective customers are attracted to the upscale look and functionality of closing off a large space with a trendy look. Many like the look of the rustic and modern combined to create a new contemporary look.
The doors come in many colors, sizes, styles, and materials. They can separate a master bedroom from its en suite or close off a home office
They can also be used in place of closet doors or pantry doors.
In the “open concept floor plan era” barn doors can provide separation without permanent walls. Although they need extra wall space for which to slide they do not need the traditional 9 feet needed for a swinging door. Even entertainment systems and televisions can be concealed with these doors.
Laundry rooms are another great place to tuck out of sight using barn doors.
Some drawbacks to barn doors are their complete lack of privacy and sound isolation. They can also be noisy to open or close and do require the extra wall space to slide open. They will not work in a completely open floor plan. When installing barn doors, a track system with rubber rollers instead of metal is recommended. This will help to cut down on the noise level when opening and closing the barn doors.
If you are looking for a way to create a sectioned space, or hide an area, or create some privacy, barn doors are all the craze!
