Due to the current climate, we’re all spending more time at home than we ever have before, which is why home renovations are on the rise. Many of us will be working from home indefinitely, so now is the time to create a workspace that is comfortable and organized. Sliding barn doors are a great way to optimize space and add an elegant yet functional touch to your workspace. Here are a few of the ways sliding barn doors can help you transform extra space into a workspace.
Sliding barn doors are a great way to keep your workspace private without sacrificing valuable floor space. When you use traditional doors, you need to account for the wide berth they require to swing open and design the layout of your room accordingly. If you use a sliding door all you need is enough wall space for the door to fully slide open.
Great for Awkward Spaces
Many homes, especially older ones, have awkward spaces that homeowners are having to convert into workspaces. Whether it’s the end of a hallway, a nook under the stairs, or just a small oddly shaped room, a sliding barn door can seamlessly transform any space into a usable workspace. You can get a sliding door custom-built for your unique space that couldn’t accommodate a normal door, and voila, you’ve got yourself a brand-new home office.
Although sliding barn doors are primarily used for entrances, they can also be used to organize your workspace. If you place them in front of recessed shelving, you can hide clutter and remove all the distractions from your home office. They can also be used to create a multifunctional room if you don’t have the extra space to create a designated workspace. You can hide an entertainment system in seconds with sliding barn doors, and suddenly your family room is a distraction-free home office.
At Viba, we understand that every homeowner has a unique style, which is why we offer a variety of sliding barn door styles and a number of hardware options. We’ll also work with you to create a custom sliding barn door that perfectly accents the décor in your home. From modern to rustic, we’ve got a sliding barn door style for you.
Easy to Install
Sliding barn doors may look fancy and complicated, but they can actually be easier to install in your workspace than a traditional door. We always provide you with step by step instructions, but all you need to do is simply attach the track to the header board and attach the door to the track; really, that’s it!
