Also question is, can you use any door for a barn door?

Rolling, barn-style doors may be the in thing, but they're more than just trendy. While you can buy doors intended for a barn-door installation (Home Hardware and Home Depot have lightweight K- and Z-style doors), virtually any door can be converted to a barn door with special tracks and hangers.

Additionally, can you use a barn door for a bedroom? A barn door is solid and large enough to hold a mirror. In fact, it's perfect for that, whether you put it in the bedroom, the bathroom or the closet. While the door brings warmth and rusticity into the decor, the mirror makes the room seem spacious and open.

Regarding this, what can I use instead of a barn door?

Are barn doors a good idea?

If you have an area that calls for visual separation from another space, and you do not need to seal off sound, then barn doors are a great option. They are not ideal for bathrooms and bedrooms, however. Barn doors can be a fun visual element, but they are better suited for the more public areas of your home.
