Custom Barn Door | Create Privacy

residential barn doors

A custom barn door can have many unique uses, especially in our region’s homes. One of the great things about many Arizona homes is the grand master suite, which often includes a wide-opening leading from the bedroom to the bathroom. While this can create a wonderful sense of space and openness, it can also mean very little privacy.

Even the closest married couple may not want to spend every waking minute with their spouse, especially if one has to get up earlier than the other! You may have a 5 a.m. waking alarm but your spouse doesn’t have to get up until 7 a.m. This can create some challenges. Not to mention that taking a shower and getting ready can cause a lot of noise. Especially when there is no door to close.

In addition to being a unique decorative element, a custom barn door can have a very functional purpose. Privacy. And by hanging the custom barn door parallel to the wall, it gives you more space than traditional doors that swing in and out. This will help you keep the grand appeal that our Arizona homes have but give you the privacy you need.

Many people try adding a curtain or tri-screen panels to create the privacy they need. While these can certainly help with the privacy issue, they do very little to contain the noise. At Dwell, our talented design team can help you come up with the perfect custom barn door to help solve your privacy problem. We work with a variety of wood, including reclaimed. And our designs run from rustic and weathered to sleek and modern. You can find a variety of custom barn door ideas on sites like Pinterest.
