We’ve rounded up some modern barn door ideas for a little inspiration. Here are 10 ways you can use them to freshen up a space.

Get creative with the materials for your barn doors. The chic one above may look like it cost a pretty penny, but it’s actually a salvaged old door. New hardware and a fresh coat of stain brought it back to life.
Barn doors come with both functional and aesthetic benefits. Functionally, they are big space savers. The traditional swinging door typically needs 9 feet or more of space to function properly. While this may not be an issue for large houses, more space-starved homes will find it more than a little problematic. They need all the space they can get for furniture, appliances and movement. Nine feet is a lot of space to leave to the door. French doors, as beautiful as they are, are even bigger space gobblers.
Rustic and modern at the same time. Smart way to partition off an office.
To give barn doors a modern look, consider painting them in a bright, bold color. Go with high-sheen paints or lacquers that add gloss and richness to the color you choose. Try orange, lime green, turquoise or bright red.
If the section that you’re considering mounting a barn door to has a special feature — such as a bright, sunny area on the other side — or you simply want to divide the area without blocking it off with something large and heavy-looking, frosted glass may be the perfect solution for your barn doors. The frost effect conceals what’s on the other side just enough while letting light in, and the overall effect is open and airy.
Another advantage of barn doors is their support system. Sliding barn doors use a track for movement. The entire weight of the door is therefore distributed along the length of the track. This allows for the installation of heavier-than-usual doors without affecting stability of ease of movement. For places that need more security but are limited in space, a heavy barn door would work just fine.
A door does not have to be purely utilitarian. Why not mount barn doors that have an artistic quality to them? They will hide or divide what you need them to, in a beautiful, wall-art sort of way.
Love the contrast of white and dark features. What a fantastic farmhouse door.
This is such a unique door with tons of detail. So smart how they created a separate area for the light to come in or to look out outside.

What a great reclaimed wood door that was actually added to a more contemporary style home. Really love the hardware along the top of the door.
Love the double doors and that it is classic & traditional. The windows at the top help make the space feel less closed in. Must be a nice office space to work in.
If you’re considering the use of barn doors in your home, think outside the box. They’re a beautiful and practical alternative to a room divider or curtain when you need to create privacy or divide open spaces. A barn door is also useful where there is plenty of wall space but a swinging door could affect the flow of the room.
There is also, of course, the aesthetics side of the barn door craze. Some barn doors have this rustic outdoorsy feel that creates a stunning contrast when indoors. This contrast is especially enhanced if the door is styled in a worn, rustic design that makes it seem like it was taken right from the barn outside and installed inside.
Sometimes you don’t have room for huge doors–so I like the smaller size of these doors. Love the burst of color.
Barn doors traditionally have been reserved for rustic or country-style decor. But the latest barn door hardware has greatly improved in design aesthetic, function and affordability. A sliding barn door is now a decidedly modern option.
Barn doors are not just for barns anymore. From the countryside barns, these wide sliding doors have entered the house to become popular interior décor pieces. From cozy bedrooms to rustic home offices and perfect room dividers, barn-style doors are all the rage for homeowners.
The beautiful driftwood gray color of this door is elegant. Pretty handle too!

If you are handy with tools, you can try your own DIY barn door installation. But beware, it is not as easy as it looks and you may not be able to pull it off alone. To make sure the door slides well along the track with no hiccups, we highly recommend hiring a professional.
A small disadvantage with barn doors is that they may not close as quietly as traditional doors. But a good contractor should be able to install it in such a way that noise is reduced to a minimum.
Take rustic wood and create barn doors with a nod to their origins. The look is most effective in minimalist, contemporary spaces where the color white and concrete materials dominate. Rustic barn doors add texture and warm up the space, as in the art studio above.

This door contains so much beautiful detail and just so pretty! Looks like a very classy cottage.
Clean, warm, contemporary and I like that it conceals or reveals a bar area. Always a big fan of the smaller doors.
In a small space where every single inch counts, barn doors come in handy. A well installed barn door offers great space economy for whatever room you use it in. Of course, you need to have enough adjacent wall space for the barn door to slide over when it is opened. But this is often preferable to similarly space-saving pocket doors that require much more work to install or remove.
So comfy and cozy. The use of these beautiful doors easily changes this space from entertainment area to conversation area.
