Sliding barn doors are very common in contemporary households because of their functionality, style, and ability to save space. When many people have the same interior design trends that you do, you may want to diversify your home by adding a unique spin to a modern classic. A great way to individualize your sliding barn door is to add custom treatments to better match your home’s aesthetic. Here are some creative examples of how!
An obvious way to provide your sliding barn door with customized treatments is to paint it your favourite colour(s). The sky is the limit when you choose to paint your door with one solid colour, stripes, your favourite quotes, drawings, or anything else your mind can come up with. This is a particularly good choice for children’s rooms and playrooms to show off personality and creativity.
Chalkboards and Whiteboards
Sliding barn doors are already considered very functional and serving to homeowners, however, there are treatments that can help your sliding barn door become multipurpose. A sliding barn door in a kitchen, front foyer, living room, or anywhere else that may be high traffic can be finished with chalkboard paint or whiteboard stickers to become a place where family members can leave notes, reminders, and calendars.
If you have a sliding barn door in your bathroom or in your closet, a great way to make it into a multipurpose surface is to stick mirror decals or a full-length mirror onto the door. This allows you to have extra mirrors while getting dressed or doing makeup, plus, mirrored surfaces help to make small rooms appear larger.
When it comes to photos of family and friends, there’s no such thing as too much. A great way to artfully display your favourite pictures is to create a collage on your sliding barn door with them! This is an especially valuable idea for areas like hallways, living rooms, and kitchens where you would usually display your treasured family photos.
Not interested in painting your own print by hand on your sliding barn door? No worries! A great treatment option is to wallpaper all or parts of your door. Wallpapers come in all different kinds of unique prints and artful designs that will help you express your home’s individuality with a simple peel and stick.
