Biparting Double Barn Doors
There’s nothing more dramatic than throwing double doors wide open to reveal a large entryway between two rooms in your home, and with double sliding barn doors, you can perfectly capture this feeling of a major reveal, as well as creating a barrier between larger living spaces when necessary. With bi-parting double sliding barn doors that meet up in the center of the open entry, you can add a dollop of traditional styling with a totally modern aesthetic and increase the function and use value of your space immeasurably.
Bold, Elegant Design
Double sliding barn doors provide for a functional means of temporarily dividing larger living spaces, in order to create a cozier, more intimate atmosphere, while retaining the option to slide them wide to enjoy the flow of a more open floor plan. In addition to adding versatility to your floor plan, however, you’ll enjoy the big, bold styling these upscale doors add to your living spaces.
You can start by choosing from several distinctive and timeless double barn door styles, including:
- Warm wood tones
- Weathered wood styles
- French doors featuring window pane, panel, or diamond pane design
- Half-panel French doors
- Mirrored doors
- and more
Whether you prefer the warmth and beauty of rustic wood all around, you want the natural flow of light French doors provide, or you’re looking for a bit of both with half-panel designs, you’ll find exactly the right configuration for your needs and preferences when you partner with White Shanty. You’ll also enjoy options for paint, stain, and custom sizing, as well as hardware like handles and locks that perfectly suit your interior styling.
Benefits of Double Sliding Barn Doors
Working with small living spaces has its challenges, to be sure, but when you have a lot of space, you may be equally unsure about how to optimize beauty and function. With double sliding barn doors, you can take full advantage of excess wall space surrounding wide openings by adding an architectural feature that increases utility and elevates your design aesthetic.
The track for double sliding barn doors extends far beyond the horizontal dimensions of your door frame. This means you have the option to open doors completely, revealing the generous flow of an open floor plan, while doors create visual interest on otherwise blank wall space. When doors are closed, you’ll enjoy the intimacy of a smaller space, separate from the larger common areas of the home.
Proper Placement for Double Barn Doors
Double sliding barn doors are ideal for transitions between larger living spaces. If you have a double-wide entry between your living room and dining room, a family room and children’s play room, or even sleeping and seating areas in a large master bedroom (or alternately, between the master bedroom and en suite areas), double sliding barn doors could provide an elegant and efficient solution that ensures privacy when needed, without losing the ability to open up the space as you see fit.
Measuring for Double Sliding Barn Doors
The only caveat with double sliding barn doors is that you need enough horizontal wall space for your double doors to fully open on either side of the entry. Careful measurements of both the opening and available wall space surrounding it will ensure that your custom-sized doors and overhead track fit perfectly in available space.
