To maximize every inch of the 600-square foot garage apartment, designers installed this custom-built folding barn door. It can slide over to enclose the bedroom or fold up to create a open plan flow across the space.
This sliding barn door is the perfect addition for a rustic design. The distressed look gives it a very natural feel while the sliding mechanism makes it easy and functional. Yellow walls brighten the space and a marble floor adds a polished finish.
In the laundry room, what was once a utility closet is now a useful pantry. Pull-out drawers and wire baskets add to the pantry's functionality. The original swinging door was replaced with a barn-style sliding one, which takes up less room in the smaller space.
The master bedroom incorporates an ingenious barn door closet system. Drawers and cabinets provide storage in the center of the wall for folded clothes and accessories. Slide the barn doors over to reveal hanging room.
