Utilizing sliding barn doors inside the home is an especially trendy choice these days, but that’s not the only benefit of these statement doors. If you’re considering adding a barn door to your home, here are four benefits you can put in the “pro” column:
- Barn doors are aesthetically pleasing. Perhaps it’s because they have a unique and different appeal than a traditional door, but barn doors add instant charm to a room. With both rustic and modern styles, you can completely change the feel of a room.
- Barn doors are space savers. In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, barn doors are also extremely practical. Since they don’t swing open like a traditional door on hinges, you don’t need to account for opening and closing space. This makes barn doors a particularly effective choice for small bedrooms.
- Barn doors are convenient. You’ll never be happier to have a barn door than when you have to move furniture in and out of a room. The added space they allow for maneuvering, coupled with eliminating the need to hold a door open, makes them a very functional choice.
- Barn doors are easy to open and close. Without knobs to turn and with an easy sliding track, barn doors are actually extremely ADA compliant. This make them a great option for older adults choosing to age in place or someone looking to make their home more accessible to people with disabilities.
