Trendsetting homeowners are using a new style of sliding doors, called barn doors in bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms — virtually all over the home. Perhaps it was only a matter of time before some clever designer ordered up a custom one for a bathroom.
At any rate, it’s a great concept, especially since many bathrooms are short on space. These doors, which we at Precision refer to as ‘single slides,’ are a stylish way to introduce a sliding door, especially in tight spaces where a traditional door would take up valuable floor space when opened. See how the latest shower doors have been inspired by the humble barn door:
Frameless shower doors are all the rage, but what happens if your bathroom’s too small to accommodate an open hinged door? That’s where a barn style sliding shower door makes perfect sense.
One of the coolest things about a barn-style door, like the one in this bathroom, is the nifty hardware at the heart of its design. Unlike the sliding shower doors of the past, there’s no aluminum frame to become clogged with wet “gunk”. Just clean the hardware with a gentle, non-abrasive cleaner and you’re done!
A Trend Destined to Become a Classic
Because of their utility, style, and versatility, a barn-style glass shower door is destined to become a new bathroom classic. The trends that typically become household staples are the ones that both perform well and look great. The barn door trend has already proved it meets that standard, which means it’s not going anywhere anytime soon!
