When we were building our home, I didn’t even think about the negative consequences of having an arch only from our bedroom into out master bathroom. I thought the arch looked charming and I loved the “open flow” in the room. Some might still agree with that, however… Not the most functional choice in our home. The shower is only feet from where my head lies on my pillow. And my husband gets up at a brutal time of the night to go to work. Hence my serious consideration of new doorway options. And because I am not a college student, the hippie beads aren’t going to cut it. I don’t really want a major construction project, so I think I might go the barn door route, so we don’t have to actually cut in a square doorway and add a door jam. I think these looks are pretty terrific, with little (no) sheet rock cutting. I realize because I have a slight arch, it may not look as good. But it is better than the alternative. So here are 12 amazing barn door projects that I found and loved, and wanted to share!
