Barn Doors, Yay or Neigh?

Been noticing many barn doors in the home lately, do you think this is just a passing trend or is it here to stay?

Yay, I'd love some hay
Neigh, keep it away!

    Max Powers keeps his horse in the horse barn, along with its horse barn door. No place for these in the house.

    I was skeptical of the trend at first, but I love the use of the barn door in this apartment: https://www.houzz.com.au/magazine/houzz-tour-swedish-summer-house-turns-up-in-sydney-apartment-stsetivw-vs~34969853

    Barn doors can be modern! I just put some into my house, albeit a modern take... you can see them in this photo on either side of the doorway leading to our tv room. we were intending on exposed rails but the mechanism to hang doors like this cost more than a small country!!!

    Given the style of your house the barn door suits it totally!! Very fitting - love the imagery and concept - well done!!

    There is a fantastic DIY version on Vintage Revivals;

    http://www.vintagerevivals.com/2015/01/diy-bypass-barn-doors-part-1.html

    It lends itself to a completely custom solution for your own decor style...

    I'm a yay, but only for areas where noise (or smell - i.e. toilet) leak aren't a problem.

    I adore the use of barn doors in the home. They can look great in a number of different styles. I will be putting one in my son's bedroom for his large wardrobe, keep you posted

    They are great where you don't need total privacy. So nay to bathroom or bedroom.

    Love the flexibility they give to a space. We prefer the modern contemporary versions that go with our architecture but the concept is the same.

    They look very stylish as feature doors in more rustic style homes. This is one of my latest homes near Noosa Qld.

    Moteef I love what you have done with your TV room - we are considering sliding doors in this style also. Can I ask the width - dimensions of the doorway opening - I am really unsure how wide to make the space and yours looks perfect thanks !
