Love Barn Door Décor? Try These Murphy Beds and Cabinet Beds
Barn doors are a trend that appeared on the interior design scene several years ago, about the same time as shiplap and farm décor became popular. But while other trends are diminishing, barn doors are holding strong – and for good reason. They are quite practical as well as good looking. If you enjoy this style trend, then these murphy beds and cabinet beds with barn door décor details are sure to be just the right fit for your home.
Why Barn Doors?
In the last two centuries or so, pocket doors became a trend in response to a problem in some homes where there just was not adequate space to allow the full swing of a door to open. Unfortunately, pocket doors require double the width of the door to work and oftentimes this is not practical due to the location of studs.
Along came barn doors to the rescue. The sliding tracks are based on actual farm barn door design. They are proven to be a great solution for spaces where only a pocket door would fit. In addition, barn doors inside the home add architectural interest. They can be configured as a single piece that slides to one side or, if wall space does not allow for that, they can be split into two and close in the middle. Barn doors are also a great way to separate two areas in a large room, such as a study located off the living area.
