A celebration of a Remodelista favorite: traditional sliding barn doors artfully used in interiors. Whether they're new or reclaimed, barn doors lend their rustic, practical sensibility to a space. They save room but are not tucked away like pocket doors, making a virtue out of their rugged beams and industrious hardware.
