Designer Kim Lewis added the large 9' window to the space to make the bathroom that much brighter. To keep from covering it up with a traditional mirror, Lewis used a barn door track, providing flexibility in placement, so it never hinders the view of the incredible Southern California landscape just outside.
This contemporary hallway showcases one of the custom barn style doors featured throughout the home and provides a glimpse at the master bedroom area.Rich hardwood floors and a black metal railing add finishing touches.
The shelves and frames for the custom barn doors in this kitchen have been stained to match the cabinets and the base for the kitchen island. The natural color of the wood is infused with a hint of charcoal to coordinate these details with the cabinets and the gray and white tile floor and wall. As seen on America's Most Desperate Kitchens.
As seen on HGTV's America's Most Desperate Kitchens, a closet at the opposite end of the kitchen was converted into a pantry and is concealed by a custom barn door. The sink remains in the same place, but it the old, lackluster sink was replaced with a stainless steel apron front sink with a brushed finished. All the appliances in the space, including the sink, were upgraded to pro-level appliances, creating a chef's kitchen out of an outdated, cramped space.
A custom sliding barn door serves as the transition from the bedroom to the master ensuite. The rich navy blue relates to the overall color story of the home and brings warmth to the bedroom. Reclaimed wood creates a rustic backdrop to the bed.
Not every home is blessed with the grand volumes of a loft space, but you can use space-saving tricks to make rooms feel more expansive, as designers Jamie Hamilton and Greer Nelson of Oliver Simon Design did in this project. “We loved the idea of an antique map in this dining room because it was a small space but we still wanted it to be bright and interesting. Not losing valuable space to framed art on the walls meant that every inch was used in the smartest way possible. The custom barn door was also a space saver, and a bright hit of color adds good bang for the buck.”
This fresh craft room features a custom sliding barn door at its entrance, as well as a powder blue desk, shelf and cabinets. A blue and white floral upholstered chair offers a comfortable place to sit, while white oak floors and wainscoting add finishing touches. Natural light illuminates the space.
This twist on a traditional dining room in the HGTV Smart Home 2014 is located in Nashville, TN. The red dining room has two custom-built barn doors that add a modern twist to the traditional design and impart a casual feeling into the space. An iron chandelier featuring beaded adornment illuminates the small round table in a subtle way.
Dark hardwood flooring and a corrugated metal ceiling define this rustic-industrial home office. A custom light fixture composed of plumbing fittings adds interest overhead, while a custom, sliding track barn door provides privacy for an adjoining guest room. Chalkboard paint on the reclaimed wood doors is a fun and functional touch.
