Like so many home decor enthusiasts as of late, have you fallen completely in love with the idea of installing some kind of barn door inspired feature in your home? We have as well, if we’re being honest with you, which is how we found ourselves scouring the Internet for awesome trips and tricks for making barn door features of all kinds using our very own DIY skills!
Just in case you’re feeling as enamoured with the idea of making your very own barn door style detailing at home just as much as we do, if not more, here are 15 of the very best ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance.
1. DIY sliding barn door plans
When you picture your ideal space, does it feature the classic kind of home installed barn doors that are made of wood and that split in the middle and slide off on their tracks to either side? Well, luckily for all of us, that’s precisely what this tutorial from Jenna Sue Design Co. outlines the process of making! They even provide you with useful illustrated blueprints to help along the way.
2. DIY sliding double barn doors in the hallway
Just in case your ideal version of the above project is a little bigger, with much wider doors, and involves naturally stained wood instead of wood that has been painted, here’s another tutorial that’s slightly more catered to what you had in mind! We’d definitely suggest taking a better look at this tutorial from Infarrantly Creative if them scheme you’re going for is a little more rustic and a little less simple farmhouse.
3. Black barn doors for a formal home office space
Are you intent on building yourself a sliding barn door, but you’d also like to make it look a little more sleek and professional, almost like the kind of sliding door you’d find in a trendy loft space in a big city? In that case, we think you simply must take a look at the way Magic Brush made this slightly altered version that is split in the middle so the doors slide together and collapse into a smaller piece all to one side, rather than splitting in the middle and sliding apart!
4. Single laundry room sliding barn door
Maybe the space you’ve got in mind for this particular farm styled makeover is actually a little smaller and only really has space for a single door over its opening, rather than doubles? In that case, we have a feeling you might get along much better indeed with this sliding single door tutorial from Our House Now A Home that still works like a barn door, but without you having to fit two in one place.
