Repurposed Barn Doors: Bringing the Outside In

Barn doors are cool. Their weathered patina and heavy utility appeals to the soul. Associated with the rural outdoors, they are a piece of history that breathes life into otherwise potentially bland indoor spaces.  Spanning from divine bovine to sleek and chic, they masterfully complement a multitude of spaces, from rustic to contemporary.

Aesthetics aren’t their only attribute. Sliding mechanisms on barn doors save space by eliminating the need to accommodate for a door swing – a great solution for narrow spaces.  Barn doors aren’t only repurposed as doors.  Also taking the form of artwork, room dividers and bed headboards, their applications are as plentiful as a bountiful harvest.
