There’s no denying it, barns door are in! They are all over Pinterest and the one featured in Jen’s new kitchen got a lot of comments. It may seem a bit adventurous to include one in your home, but they can easily be understated and on-trend, plus they’re ideal when you’re working with limited space! Below are some of our favourites.
Rustica Hardware: We all know gold taps are in, but what about gold barn door hardware? Perfect for achieving that touch of elegance, US brand Rustica Hardware (available in Australia) has introduced three new finishes: Modern Gold, Mountain Gold and Champagne Gold. But if gold’s not your thing they also stock every other type of barn door or barn door hardware you could imagine!
Bunnings: A cheaper option — and as seen in Jen’s kitchen — Bunnings’ matte black barn door hardware is perfect for DIY installation. Simple, sturdy and classically timeless, it looks much more expensive than it is in our opinion! Jen’s carpenter achieved this look by covering the wall and a plain oversized door with Easycraft’s popular EasyVJ wall panelling then painting it all in the same colour.
The Merry Barn: Custom made by hand in Australia, each reclaimed hardwood door is a unique piece of functional furniture. Passionate about using recycled and locally sourced materials, these pieces are not only better for the environment but will add charm and interest to your interior.
Ideal Barn Doors: Supplying a range of classic timber barn doors, they all come ready to be stained or painted so you can keep your options open. Also stocking hardware, the wide range includes everything from stainless steel and matte black to the more wacky designs of an anchor, guitar and axe!
Catering to popular demand, Doors Plus also exclusively stock the Glengary range of solid Ash barn doors.
Obviously much more practical than us, blogger Katrina Chambers recently showed how easy it is to DIY an affordable barn door in your home. We think it looks fab!
We love that the barn door trend isn’t just reserved for country or traditional interiors. Barn doors can be modern and sleek too. And practically, they’re obviously a massive space saver, perfect for applications like en suites and butler’s pantries. And above all, they make a great visual statement, whether you want them to blend into the background (like Jen’s) or stand out.
