Sliding Barn Doors – Pinspiration
My big focus for 2015 is remodelling our kitchen. It’s looking old and tired and we need more storage space. But one thing in particular has got to go. Our listed warehouse was converted at the end of the eighties – a time, apparently, when nobody could be bothered to walk the short distance from the kitchen to the immediately adjacent living-dining room but instead preferred to hand everything though a serving hatch. Our monstrosity of a hatch has a set of double glass doors – which rattle gently when the washing machine is on. Ever since we sat on the floor eating curry on the first night in our brand new home, I have known… the hatch has got to go.
The scheme for our new kitchen will be monochrome – more on this in the coming weeks. And I think a sliding barn door will be the perfect solution for modernising the hatch. It will complement the exposed brick in the living room and is perfect for a warehouse home,
This industrial door might be a great solution because it features a large glass panel – meaning even when the door is pulled across, there will still be natural light in the kitchen. We could have it cut to size, but I like the drama of having a full height door running across the hatch window.
If you’re lucky enough not to have an eighties hatch to contend with, these sliding barn doors are also a stylish way to conceal shelving, storage or appliances.
These sliding barn doors maximise space and make a great statement in any room.
And there’s nothing to say your industrial or barn doors can’t bring a bold splash of colour to the room as well, as these colourful examples demonstrate.
Finally, if your interior scheme has a more vintage leaning, then why not visit reclamation specialists Lassco or Retrouvius for a salvaged door or window. You could then have it mounted on an industrial track – The White Shanty supply a selection of these, via Etsy.
