Farmhouse style is still popular and probably will be for awhile. There are many ways to add the farmhouse look to your home, but today I’m focusing on barn doors that I think you’ll love.
When I think of barn doors, the above is what I envision. A flat planked door on a roller that allows you to easily slide the door open and closed.
A more modern example has windows at the top to allow more light to flow between these two rooms.
There are two pairs of sliding doors in this living space. One set is painted cream, the other is painted red. Sliding barn doors are a great option for closet doors. They don’t swing out into the room requiring extra space.
This pair of barn doors do double duty. They hide the pantry and serve as chalkboards for family messages or grocery lists.
A barn door is perfect for a kitchen pantry. Opening it wide allows you easy access to dishes and sundry items.
Keep in mind, a barn door doesn’t have to slide. When you don’t have enough wall for a rolling door, just use it like a typical hinged door.
Choose an industrial style door for a unique look in your home.

Can you find the door in this kitchen? It blends right in with the planked walls!
I love how this kitchen incorporates a chalkboard style door to hide items on shelves in the breakfast nook.
And finally, one of my favorite uses of barn doors is to hide a TV! Unfortunately I don’t have the wall space to do this in my own home, but I sure do love it!
So what about you? Are you a fan of barn doors and the farmhouse style?
