I’ve mentioned before that I quite like these doors but the idea is slowly bubbling into an obsession. Something I absolutely want in my home. The hanging barn door – it’s a gorgeous and yet functional piece that makes a big impact in any room and I think it would be the perfect way to create a divide between the current kitchen and formal living room opening.
The big question is how to do it so it fits in with the modern interior & exterior? Here’s some ideas I found….

Hanging vintage doors on a clean crisp modern background completely resonates with me. What a great way to add in character and history to a room.

Or you can go completely the other way. The idea of taking a traditional method of displaying barn doors and making a super modern version of it with chrome finished hardware is also very cool. I also adore the recessed chalkboard as a hidden child’s play space.

So where do you get the doors from? Most people take a flea market find and repurpose it, or create their own. You can get the hardware to hang the doors separately. This company lets you customize the finish on the hardware so it blends in with the rest of your home.
Yet another excuse to keep shopping at the local flea markets!
