HGTV has done a number on interior design. And it’s a number two. I think it started with Chip and Joanna Gaines making every interior door a barn door!
Yes: An actual barn door on a barn! ✅✅
Big no. No no no no. Not now. Not later. Never. Interior sliding barn doors don’t have a lower track so when a wind blows the doors bang against the wall. There’s no way to lock them. There’s no real privacy in, let’s say, a bathroom. Kids get their hands caught slamming them closed.
I repeat. No no no. Just say no to interior barn doors. I get the thought process. It’s the execution that’s nonsensical.
Baptismal fonts? Yes.
Vessel sinks? Someone please tell me how this got to be a good thing? No. No no. No. No.
These are plates people. Dishes. Not sinks.
This is my mothers 1960s Corning Ware casserole dish.
It’s all a personal choice. You do what you want in your house and if interior barn doors and vessel sinks float your boat, gopher it. Me? I like doors with handles that close. Even a pocket door is better than a sliding barn door. But I must be in the minority because every HGTV renovation program I see (correction, every HGTV renovation program I SAW when I had all my Cablevision channels!) the hosts are excitedly installing barn doors and the owners are oohing and aaahing over the concept. Oh well. Cast your vote. Yes or no for barn doors and vessel sinks.
Speaking of vessels, we went all out replacing the everyday dishes that got packed up in the move. Don’t be jealous!
