Love this space saving idea….

This bathroom is fairly small and typical for a hall bath. The available floor space is about 5′ 1/2″ X 2′ 1/2″. I want to optimize the space better by removing the traditional, in-swing interior door and replacing it with a sliding barn style door. I like the idea of the door being exposed along with all of its chunky hardware instead of using a pocket door. Good looking doors are like artwork. There are hundreds of choices in doors and hardware. Reusing a door from a second hand store is also a¬∑great idea with endless possibilities. This small remodel project will bring some zing to the drab hallway and help preserve precious square footage in the small bathroom.
