Barn door to bedroom privacy/noise issues
September 1, 2014 in Design Dilemma
We are building a small vacation home and the master bedroom door leads directly into the great room. We want to use a barn door to help it feel more "special" and like it belongs in a living area. But we are concerned about noise and privacy. One option would be to have an additional pocket door that would remain open and out of sight except at night when we need better sound and light blocking. But in order to do that , we would have to trim out the opening, and I prefer the look of a drywall only opening with barn doors. Another idea would be to have a second sliding (barn) door on the inside of the room that would remain out of sight and only used at night. Any suggestions, ideas?
