One of the newer trends in home decor is the barn door look, which combines the rustic industrial chic of substantial exposed hardware with the various materials used for doors, whether wood, metal or other materials that fit the overall home design. Bathrooms are also capitalizing on this trend with the use of the barn door style for shower stalls.
In applications in which the bypass shower door would typically be used, the addition of barn door style gives a modern makeover to a fixture that hasn’t changed much over the years. Rather than a top cap covering the roller mechanism, the barn door style leaves that part exposed to view. With hardware in varieties of metal types, the fixture finishes can be matched for a completed designer appearance.
