sliding Barn Door for bathroom
There are many reasons why you may be searching for a sliding barn door for your bathroom. In addition to giving you some ideas about bathroom barn door styles, we will share a few things that you can do to make your bathroom feel bigger that it really is.
The Size of Your Bathroom
The size of your bathroom often determines the size of your sliding barn door. In most cases, only one door is needed. For a master bath, you may want two that meet in the middle of the entry space and slide away from one another.
Your bathroom may be small but there are some things that you can do to make it look a little bigger. First, you can raise your curtain rods. Doing so will make the window look larger.
Second, if you have multiple pictures hanging on your bathroom wall (maybe a series of beach paintings) then swap them out for one larger picture. It will help make the wall look a little larger.
Third, get rid of some of the clutter. How many brushes, combs, curling irons, sticks of deodorant, etc. do you really need? Maybe you have just the right amount but sometimes you have multiple of the same item and can trim it down to one. Clutter also means extra rolls of toilet paper stacked on the toilet, baskets full of who knows what, and even a garbage can. Clutter also includes all of those things you’ve added to make the room “cute” or decorative. Be minimalistic.
Fourth, choose your paint color wisely. Some paint colors seem to shrink the room. Others, like bright white, seem to make the room a little bit bigger.
Fifth, add a sliding barn door to your bathroom. Hinged doors cut into the space of the room. A sliding barn door glides along the wall and does not cut into the room’s space. So, how do you find a barn door that works well with your bathroom?
There are different types of sliding barn doors for your bathroom. Here, we will discuss the modern mirror barn door, the diamond sliding barn door, panel barn doors, and the aspen barn door.
Modern Mirror Barn Door
With a mirror barn door, you not only add style to your bathroom, but you also add functionality. Use the mirror for shaving, putting on makeup, doing your hair, straightening your tie, or giving yourself one last look over before you make your way out for the day.
Diamond Sliding Barn Door
Are you searching for a sliding barn door for a bathroom that is bold and beautiful? If so, search for a diamond sliding barn door. Carved into the center of the door is a diamond shape. There is a vertical line that goes through the center of the door (from top to bottom). One of the advantages of a door like this is that you are able to paint it. You can paint it yourself, or better yet, you can select the paint color and the barn door manufacturer will paint it for you.
3-Panel and 5-Panel Sliding Barn Door
A door without panels is typically flat. Add some detail to your door with panels. Panels are square or rectangle, depending on the number of panels the door has.
Aspen Barn Door
An aspen barn door is made with thin straps of metal and reclaimed wood. It is a great way to subtly combine wood and metal into a masterpiece.
The styles that we’ve mentioned are great but they are by no means the only options. If you go with a custom barn door maker, your choices seem limitless. This can be good for those who want several choices but it can be intimidating to some. If you feel like you will be overwhelmed by too many choices, go with some of the sliding barn doors for bathrooms that we’ve mentioned or work with the client support team. They are there to help you make the best decision.
Once you know what type of door you want you can look for companies who have that style. As you search, it is important to take a look at the product reviews before you make your final decision. Some barn door companies do not deliver what they say they will. Fortunately, in the age of online reviews, their customers will let you know about it.
Sliding Barn Door for Bathroom Reviews
Reviews are an excellent way to help guarantee that you are purchasing a high-quality product. If you are searching for a sliding barn door for your bathroom, make sure you spend a good amount of time looking at reviews.
The first thing you will probably see is an overall “star” rating. A lot of review sites let customers review on a scale of one to five or one to ten. Other reviews sites let you leave a thumbs up or thumbs down. Others don’t have an overall rating system but just allow the customer to leave a review. If it is available, take a look at the overall review score. Then, again if possible, take a look at how many 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1-star reviews the product received. Remember, if possible you want to look at product reviews, not necessarily company reviews.
After you’ve taken a look at the overall product review, it is time to dive into the comments. What do people have to say about the sliding barn door for bathroom that they have selected? What about the hardware? What about the paint or staining? How difficult was it to hang the door? Does it open and close like it should? How is customer service?
You will hopefully get to read through a lot of comments and get an overall impression about the product you are wanting to purchase. For the most part, you should be able to trust the reviews. Look for themes in the comments people leave about a product and see if it is worth making the purchase.
