A barn door is a thing that is sure to give a rustic feel to your space, and nowadays it’s usually a sliding one, which means that you’ll save much space and get a creative combo of a rustic barn door and a modern way of using it.
Sliding barn doors can be used everywhere: for the furniture, for built-in and utility space, in between the parts of the suite, for example, a bedroom and a bathroom and so on. You can give them a different look: from bold shades to natural wood and whitewashed ones. Besides, you may incorporate various glass and mirror inserts into the doors to achieve different effects. Let’s take a look at them.
Sliding Painted And Stained Barn Doors
Stained barn doors are a very popular option for all kinds of spaces, from rustic to contemporary ones, and even if your space isn’t that rustic, such a door will add warmth and will stand out. Painting barn doors will slightly change their look, highlight the shapes and design and maybe will add a colorful touch to the space, whatever shade you’ll choose. You may even paint it black and add gold hardware for a more glam feel. If you have a shabby chic or coastal interior, try to whitewash the barn doors to make them fit the space.

Sliding Barn Doors With Mirrors/ Glass
To make the barn doors look not too bulky and rustic, you may add some glass inserts – the glass can be stained, clear or rainy, it depends on the look you want. The clearer the glass is, the more light it will let inside. Another idea is to make a mirror insert on the whole size of the barn door, a mirror will visually double the space and is a very functional idea in the spaces like closets or bathrooms.
