If you have been struggling to find the solution to an awkward entrance way between your dining room and kitchen, then a modern sliding barn door could be the solution that you have been searching for.
Just because you have never installed your own sliding barn door doesn’t mean that without a little bit of research you can’t! If you are a DIY kind of person, then don’t be scared off by the size and scope of a DIY sliding barn door kit. They can be very easy to install when you do your homework and work off a set of plans. The important thing to remember is to take your time and if you feel like something could be too hard or awkward to maneuver by yourself to just ask a friend for a hand.
We all love our dining rooms and kitchens; each provides us with practical areas, but when you have people over or just want to open up the entire area, unfortunately swinging doors or French doors aren’t so practical. With any type of swinging door, it often limits not only the type of furniture we can choose but also where it is situated inside the two rooms.
If you choose a sliding barn door, you create the same effect of opening the room up but also allow larger furniture like dining room tables to be placed where you like, without having people constantly bumped by swinging doors. If the traditional rustic barn style isn’t what you imagine for your home, there are also a large variety of modern versions of sliding barn doors available to choose from such as glass. Sliding barn doors are a great way to create a visually striking talking point inside your home while also being practical and easy to use.
