But the sliding barn door is not just about its looks alone. In fact it brings as much in terms of functionality by cutting down on wastage of space that a normal door might cause.
The barn door is the perfect way to bring some visual and textural beauty to a bedroom that seems all too monotonous. Irrespective of the theme and style of the room you can use the sliding barn door to introduce a unique pattern by choosing a pattern of wood that has not already been employed in the design of the room.
Styles such as coastal nautical and tropical are pretty close to one another and each one of them easily borrows from the other. Blue is a great color for all three of those themes and wall murals and decals inspired by ‘island life’ can further take the bedroom down the coastal route.
Even the most minimal of modern bedrooms will benefit from the sheer warmth and contrast that the barn door offers. Acting as a cool transition between the master bedroom and the bathroom the barn-style door easily stands out thanks to its uniqueness and the neutral backdrops that most modern bedrooms use.
It’s true that some wall beds can be cost-prohibitive but check out this version built by the folks over at Your Modern Family for under just $150. It took them about four hours using materials you can find readily available at the hardware store like 2X4s plywood and door hinges.
The last few years have seen a steady increase in the desire of homeowners to move away from cookie-cutter design and glossy contemporary interiors towards a more unassuming stripped-down style.
Since we are talking about kids’ bedrooms make sure you turn up the color spectrum to create a truly spectacular hangout for your little one. A backdrop in white sandy beige or mellow yellow seems to work every single time and irrespective of the color palette make sure that there is plenty of natural light to really usher in that delightful tropical vibe.
While green and blue are traditionally the two colors that work best in tropical bedrooms vibrant shades of orange and pink also blend in beautifully with this rich decorating style.
