11 affordable sliding barn doors for a farmhouse lookOne of the things that’s cool about sliding farmhouse doors is that they can be used in many areas of the home, even if you have a petite home or an apartment.  For example, they can be used in a hallway, washer/dryer area or even for a pantry.  (Note: if you see a barn door you like, you can click on the image to find out more details (e.g. price).

These wide sliding doors have become quite stylish decor pieces that can define a room’s atmosphere.  Most people buy them for aesthetics, but there are functional benefits too as they save a lot of space vs traditional swinging doors.

No matter where you put one, they make a dramatic statement and transform the area with a rustic touch of old world charm.  And, once you install one, I have a hunch you’ll love it so much that you’ll be looking for more areas to add one to.

I was pleasantly surprised to see some of the prices for these pre-made barn doors.  Most were around $300 – $500 and some are even lower.  When you factor in all the wood, sand paper, putty, screws and other items you need to buy, not to mention your time (yes, your time is worth money), it may be well worth it.


Even Amazon offers some barn doors now (click here for Amazon barn doors and hardware).  Here are a few of my favorites.
