Barn Door Closet Ideas
Sliding barn doors are greatly appreciated for their unique style and rustic feel, but they have another incredibly useful feature that shouldn’t be overlooked: space-saving potential. If a door requires a certain radius to open fully, all of the space within that radius is essentially unusable. Depending on the size of the doorway and the door itself, this can eliminate a good deal of room space that could have otherwise been used for storage, furniture placement, or general decoration. A sliding barn door allows you to take back the areas previously reserved for swinging doors and truly take advantage of all the available space your home has to offer.
In many homes, nowhere is a bit of extra space more needed than the closet. Whether a closet is shared between siblings, spouses, or even dedicated to a single user, the area around the closet can become easily overrun with dirty and clean laundry, shoes, and other household items used throughout the week such as sports equipment.
