Add Space-Saving Rustic Charm to Your Home

Homeowners can appreciate having the opportunity to save space and even open their home’s interior while adding a striking new look. If these are your goals as a homeowner, then Designer Door & Window has the perfect solution for you– interior barn doors.

Part of a Recent Design Trend

This unique, attractive product is a part of a recent design trend and stands in as an attractive alternative to pocket doors. Unlike a standard hinged door that requires between 10 and 14 square feet of floor space to swing open, a barn door consumes a little more space than its actual thickness. Since a barn door slides open instead of pivoting in either direction, you can place a table, chair, desk or other furniture pieces right beside the doorway without interfering with the its operation.

Space-Saving Solution

Interior sliding barn doors are wonderful space-saving partitions that allow you to separate rooms or add a little extra privacy without same capacity it takes to install a pocket door. All you need is enough wall space for the door to occupy while not in use. If you’re interested in adding functional flair to your home, consider placing interior barn doors.

Versatile Design Possibilities

Additionally, interior sliding barn doors will provide versatile design possibilities. Whether your children are growing out of their current rooms, or you’d like to fulfill your need for more space to move around in the living or dining room, or perhaps you plan to add furniture, these doors work perfectly in virtually every room. They will work in the bathroom, laundry room, bedroom, and your home office. They are useful for closets, hallways, kitchen pantries, and master bedrooms.

Along with functionality, barn doors can provide an aspect of rustic charm that adds a touch of comfort and warmth to a contemporary home.
