As far as design inspiration is concerned, most wouldn’t think of a farm as an ideal place to borrow ideas. However, the interior design world has embraced some elements of barn design, as evidenced by the trend of barn doors as interior focal points. Sliding barn doors offer a rustic and adaptable way to partition a room without sacrificing space or style.
JELD-WEN‘s IWP custom wood barn door line incorporates a space-saving design with a unique and rustic aesthetic. The doors function as a sliding panel, making them an ideal solution for temporarily dividing rooms or hiding storage, entertainment systems or shelving while making a stylish statement.
“We continue to see rising demand for this style of door in homes of almost every shape and size,” said Jim Parello, vice president of marketing for JELD-WEN. “This door is a gorgeous example of rustic design. It can incorporate custom, weathered coloring, natural woodgrains and tasteful, yet rugged, hardware that will blend beautifully into any living space.”
JELD-WEN doors are available in a wide variety of wood types, including alder, cherry, mahogany, oak, red grandis, walnut or a multi-species blend, so there is a match for every design scheme. Color-matching services and a choice of woodgrain options also ensure that the custom design matches the unit interior or common area style. Custom-weathered tones are available to replicate a historic look, a natural fit for properties with vintage architectural details.
Panel options offer another opportunity for design choices, with optional glass inserts or etched glass patterns. Glass designs facilitate the natural flow of light, and can improve privacy.
