For a while now, I've been considering of installing a barn door at the top of the stairs for my parent's. Their house was poorly designed and the stairs lead straight into the central part of the house ... the kitchen. Most of the noise occurs in the kitchen with the clinging & clanging of people cooking and voices of family members entertaining their guests.
What a better way to alleviate some of that noise then to add a sliding door at the top of the stairs?! I thought of using a barn door so the door itself wouldn't be too much of a nuisance while opened. My parent's home is a mixture of the modern and craftsman style. I thought a modern version of the barn door would be aesthetically fitting. Let's hope my parent's agree with the idea ;)
Check out these modern barn doors I'm considering. What are your thoughts?
I wanted to add this barn image because I love that the doors aren't the typical
barn looking door but made of corrugated metal!
