Large room application
- Partition a large room, excellent for open plan areas such as offices and warehouse conversions.
- Create dedicated spaces for work, reading, cooking, gym and so on. Each area is easily closed off enabling the user to switch off from a day’s work or study and open it up again to give a feeling of space and light.
- Create privacy when needed but keep the option to open up a room.
- The easier and cheaper option to building a wall.
Small room application
- Partition a small room to make separate areas (workspace/bedroom) but keep the overall space when wanted.
- Save space when a door could not easily open inwards or outwards.
Five alternative applications
- Up cycle an old door or piece of wood - great way to make a striking feature from something beautifully restored or perhaps an interesting piece of reclaimed wood.
- Window covering - completely block out light and draught when needed and open up when light is required. Particularly good for a large window instead of shutters or curtains.
- Barn door media console - with so many of us working from home now, it is important to have a space where we can focus and concentrate. If you are not fortunate enough to have a separate room to use as an office, you might be looking at partitioning a room with a sliding barn door or even creating an ingenious nook using bookcases and a sliding door.
- Laundry room - create a dedicated space for a washing machine, dirty clothes and cleaning products. Even if you can’t have a utility room, perhaps consider a utility nook.
- Kitchen pantry cover sliding door - hide clutter and make an extra feature of the door using chalk paint. Handy for writing a shopping list too!
