Selective Reveals: Top Picks for Sliding Barn Doors

Hello Fabulistas! Creating a home full of unique, cozy spaces means placing doors where they normally don't belong. That's why I adore sliding barn doors. They help section off — and hide — what you want, when you want it! There are numerous ways to make them work in your home but here are some of my favorite ways.

Hidden Reading Nook/Mudroom

The option for hidden storage is always a good thing. Here, sliding barn doors with horseshoe-style hardware give the option to obscure a combo reading nook and mudroom from view. Plus, those sconces make for some chic reading lights!

Open Plan Dividers

Open spaces can be fabulous, but not everyone prefers them! Installing sliding barn doors is a nice way to section off a room when you want. Cluttered kitchen? Slide the doors and hide it from company!

Hidden Pantry

Kitchens are entertaining hubs... Guests just gravitate toward them! So it's essential to cover up the utilitarian parts of the kitchen in a hurry! These sliding barn doors leave ample room for storing dry goods, and make it easy to cover up your storage before dinner parties.

Sliding Closet Door

Not every closet is a fabulous shoe closet, but even the smallest closets deserve that organizational treatment! Sometimes that means hiding its contents from sight. I love that sliding barn doors can attractively hide a closet while giving you easy access.
