Decorating a barn door with paint and accessories
Barn doors have been a hot interior design feature for many years. But how do you go about styling a barn door to suit your home’s aesthetic? There are so many interior styles on offer these days. What kind of barn door ideas will complement your lifestyle and living space? We’ve already covered different interior design styles and their interplay with barn doors, but if you’re still wondering how to style a barn door, keep reading. The look and feel of a barn door will undoubtedly be influenced by its environment. This article will share some easy barn door ideas to customise how your door complements your home.
There are some classic colour schemes and styles for barn doors in living room spaces. A popular choice is a rustic wooden finish with warm undertones that speak of wood cabins and country houses. For this look, we recommend our unique arrow, horseshoe or big wheel barn door track for that chic country appearance. For a space like a living room that gets a lot of foot traffic, a barn door soft closer is vital to prevent the door from slamming shut, especially if you have children. Here you can learn how to install a soft closer on your barn door.
The wood and neutral theme also extend to bathrooms. However, if you’re painting your barn door, you can also leap outside the box with bold blues and greens to suit a nautical vibe. Another option is to use our knockdown glass barn doors in your bathroom. They offer frosted glass to allow more privacy. It’s always safer to have a lock on your bathroom door to prevent those embarrassing interruptions to your solitude. We’ve got you covered at Rolltrak with our easy-to-install barn door latch.
With a central space like a kitchen, consider painting your barn door a brighter shade on the colour palette, even reaching into yellows, oranges or reds as a statement. If your style is more understated, a good option to embrace warmth subtly is to choose a wooden barn door with red undertones. Complement your barn door with handles that have the right personality for your kitchen. If you’re looking for something simple and minimalistic, choose our barn door finger pull or recessed handle. Try our pull handle set or square raised handle for something more attention-grabbing.
How you decorate your barn door for the bedroom will depend on the atmosphere you want in the room. If you’re looking at a palette of soft neutrals, then white, light grey, pale pink and creams will be in order. But some people like stronger tones such as deep rustic wood, dark greys or even maroons. Ask yourself how different colours affect your mood and how you want to feel in your bedroom as a guide. Barn doors are great for ensuites, providing privacy, more space, and easy access. Install our floor guide to ensure your barn door is stable and doesn’t swing out.
