Have You Considered a Barn Door for Your Office?

Barn Doors for Office Space

Barn doors are used throughout the home, to conceal a laundry area, divide a living space, and even as the entry to a bedroom. But have you considered them for an office or studio?

Sliding barn doors are both practical and super stylish. They can be a great solution in tight spaces where there isn’t room for a traditional swinging door. And, from a design standpoint, they are highly adaptable, equally at home in rustic farmhouse settings and sleek, ultra-modern interiors.

Double Barn Doors

Here is a contemporary 5-lite double barn door (design SQ-0005-D064) used to enclose a home office. The door is built of rift-sawn select White Oak, with wire-brushed distressing and factory finished in Sun Mountain’s Winter Rye stain. The Reeded Glass style (installed with the glass pattern vertically oriented) provides privacy while still allowing light to pass into the space.

The barn doors below (also design SQ-0005-D064) provide separation and privacy to a studio/workspace in a more commercial setting. Made of Hard Maple in a Clear Coat finish, these doors also feature Reeded Glass—but with the pattern oriented horizontally.

Both sets of doors operate on a track-and-spoke-wheel system by Emtek (“Modern Rectangular” style in brushed stainless steel). The doors below include an optional soft-close mechanism.
