Sliding laundry room barn doors: an equally tasteful and functional piece
Laundry rooms can take many different forms depending on the setup of your home. Whether your laundry machines and accessories are the entire focus of the room or just one part of it, a sliding laundry room barn door could be the perfect barrier for your laundry area.
What style of sliding barn door is best for the laundry room?
Plenty of sliding barn door styles would work perfectly to encapsulate your laundry area; however, we particularly recommend a few general styles.
Rustic wooden sliding barn door
When you think of a barn style door within a home, this is usually the type that comes to mind, and it's perfect for laundry rooms too. It is most similar in look and style to an actual barn door, which gives it that definitive warm Americana feel that many are looking for when shopping for one. Wooden sliding barn doors come in a multitude of colors and styles, ranging from reclaimed wood to single-slab pieces. (See our Rustic Sliding Barn Doors and Reclaimed Wood Barn Doors pages for more information.)
Paneled glass sliding barn door
A paneled glass door can look great in any room in a home, but they work particularly well for well-traveled areas in the house such as a laundry room or a pantry that don’t particularly need privacy. Besides looking streamlined and classic, a laundry roomsliding barn door doesn’t need to swing in or out, which can make space management inside or outside your laundry room much less of a hassle.
Multipurpose sliding door
Laundry rooms are often in a well-traveled area of the house where members of your family are spending a good amount of time throughout the day. This could be the perfect place to install a multipurpose sliding barn door, which can be equipped with a blackboard, cork board, white board, or even a combination of all three. Many families utilize tools like these to stay connected with each other and stay on top of important events, and utilizing your laundry room sliding barn door for these tools can save a great deal of wall space.
As mentioned above, some families prefer the option to close off the laundry area if guests are expected. In that case, a rustic wooden or multipurpose sliding barn door are great options, allowing you to access the area with ease or cover it with a beautiful White Shanty piece when the time comes.
