Now that spring has almost entirely taken over our minds, gardens, pastels, fresh curtains and lighter bedding are all factors in our spring redecorating projects. If you’re planning a renovation or major redecorating endeavor for the spring or summer, now is the time to get started! A trend that has been gaining in momentum for the past couple of years is the addition of a barn door, especially indoors. While many of you may have actual barns with original barn doors, or have already incorporated a barn door into your country home, seeing different ways they are used and different variations on the barn door may spark some interest to change its appearance or function this year. And, if the way you use or display a barn door in your home is different than what you are about to see, share a picture with us; we always welcome more inspiration. Here are some of our favorites.
Rustic Meets Modern
The beautiful stain and the primitive hardware of this large door is in harmony with the bright yellow wall and recessed lighting by way of the hardwood floor and trim, giving it new life.
This barn door is hard to miss – even with a large plant between it and the camera. We like this pop of color because it brightens up the room and makes the door itself a piece of art.
If it looks like a door…
It probably is one, but we like how this barn door is used simply to brighten the space and add interest to a bare wall. It may not open to another room, but we like how creatively it is being used: the glass panels give the almost grungy look of the room a cleaner aesthetic.
We like the glass panes at the top of this single barn door…
…but we like them even better at the top of the double doors. Whether they close or not, the doubled version really gives the space a homey feel, and ties the fun country look together while maintaining the formal look of the wood floors. And for those who need symmetrical accents, these are the ones for you.
