It wasn’t long ago where doors were just doors.
They served a purely utilitarian purpose of closing off rooms when privacy was needed, and that’s just about it. No style. No creativity.
However, that has since drastically changed. Today, homeowners are looking to bring some additional character to their homes by installing unique doors.
One of the most popular, anti-cookie cutter door styles is the country door.
There isn’t an exact definition of what a “country door” is, but they are often referred to as farmhouse or barn doors, and they are typically wooden. Many of them also are sliding doors, as opposed to the traditional hinged door.
One of the reasons these types of doors are so popular is because they are unique. You won’t see them in many homes. Also, they are also a fun way to change up the status quo for the look of an interior door. Country doors also bring a level of warmth and a rustic feeling to any interior. If you’re stuck in the suburbs but long for the days of living out in the country, you can get a little piece of that country living by adding a country door to your home.
