TV Interior Barn Doors

sliding interior barn doors cover a flat screen tvBarn-style sliding doors offer a decorative and functional solution to conceal televisions.

Several clever ways to camouflage the dreaded dark hole in the room (also known as the flat screen TV) are featured in Architectural TV Cabinets and Sliding Door Closet Wall.  Modern custom cabinets, pop-up lifts and opaque glass French style doors are the mod way to go, but what is the rustic decorating obsessed girl to do? Here are two simple ideas using wall-mounted hardware systems – barn door style.  A short version fits above the fireplace and easily slides out of the way.

More barn door ideas that can be redesigned to conceal the TV can be found in Interior Barn Doors and Decorative Interior Barn Doors.

    I love the look of barn doors too. Maybe one of these days we’ll put some in our house as they look so neat!

    Have a Happy New Year.

    Love that first photo! But I love your solution, too. I actually e-mailed a link to your tv hiding panels to my SIL who also has her tv over her fireplace. I looked into the barn door hardware for a future master bath overhaul – it’s a lot of $$$ for just the hardware. Fun to look at other uses for it, though. Thanks for sharing.
