Where are barn doors used?
Barn doors are a fun way to add style to any part of your home, but they are often chosen for their compact size.
A feature of these doors is their installation in your home. Shed doors can be hung, opened and closed like French windows, but more often they are mounted on bars in the wall above the door. Homeowners move doors back and forth between bars to close or reopen a room. These rods are usually made from wrought iron, brass, or other metal. They can be used as a dominant part of the design or merged with the background.
This mounting method saves valuable space as you no longer have to leave it empty to open a door or enter. Usually barn doors are used in wardrobes in small bedrooms; in a small space such as a laundry room, pantry, or linen closet; in the hut; for windows instead of a canopy and even to hide a large screen TV. They block light better and can even help you save energy if you have older windows.
Rustic barn doors
You might think a barn door is a rustic style, but this is not always the case. Many barn doors in Utah are made of wood planks, or at least are made to look like planks of wood. This means that the rather wide panels, held together by Z-rods and etched, look rough and frayed. A similar look is achieved by painting the shed doors and then wiping off the paint after about half an hour to give them a worn antique look.
Rustic shed doors are in vogue here, as many homeowners love Western-style decor. Rustic barn doors are great for homes with lots of wood, exposed beams, or even cowhide rugs. Windows & Doors offers a wide range of real wood barn doors with a natural knotted texture.

Therefore, these doors are great for bathrooms or even bathroom windows.
