Barn Door for Bathroom

Barn doors are a unique option for bathrooms – they work great in small spaces and add a nice touch of style for any home. Many homeowners wonder about the drawbacks of installing a barn door in the bathroom such as locks, privacy and more.

Allow Mr. Handyman to help you decide if a sliding barn door is the best option for your bathroom.

Barn Doors in Bathrooms

The first question that comes to mind is, “Can you lock a bathroom barn door?” Yes, you can lock a barn door for bathrooms, but it won’t be as secure as a traditional door. A simple hook and loop style “lock” can be used to prevent the door from being accidently opened.

Barn doors won’t give you the same degree of privacy due to the required gap it needs to operate. This is why we recommend using sliding barn doors for bathroom powder rooms. However, some homeowners don’t mind this trade-off and will use a barn for full bathrooms.

Shower Barn Door

Barn doors are great for showers, too! However, a shower barn door isn’t typically something you can quickly add to a preexisting shower. In most cases, this style door needs to be taken into consideration well before the shower is installed. Sometimes a shower barn door will require some custom cut glass and modifications to make it work. In addition, since a barn door needs space to slide open, it will require a larger bathroom than other shower door designs.

Barndoors for Vanities

Barn door bathroom vanities take the barn door trend to new heights. These stylish storage options allow homeowners to have the look of a barn door on the bathroom vanity, without the hassle of cumbersome locks or lack of privacy. Since they don’t need space to swing open or require interior hardware like drawers, they’re great for smaller bathrooms and provide plenty of storage.
