Playing off of modern farmhouse trends, take your home to the next level with the natural beauty of organic, live edge barn doors. This is a great way to double both form and function – not only as a means of screening off areas of the home for privacy, but live edge barn doors also double as beautiful wall art. There are several ways to implement live edge barn doors in your home according to your needs and style.
Single Slab Live Edge Barn Doors
Live edge single slab barn doors can be a great way to partition off semi-private areas of the home such as play areas, studys, or dens. The live organic edge will give a dramatic effect to the space. The live edge piece may taper from a much longer width to a very slender bottom taper. This can look very artful in the home and help screen off areas to reduce noise or distractions without feeling completely separate. The narrower areas can also be built out with epoxy to provide full coverage for the doorway and add an extra bit of character.
Bookmatched Live Edge Barn Doors
Bookmatched live edge barn doors can help achieve a consistent width to fully conceal a room or entryway in a home. Sliding barn doors work great in tight or narrow spaces. Bookmatched sets also offer the unique mirrored appearance across the width of the door, giving your barn door extra character.
