About Sliding Barn Doors

It is important to note that measuring your opening for a barn door is slightly different from measuring for a traditional door. Learn how to measure for a barn door on this illustrated guide.

2. Space saver

Sliding barn doors are an effective solution for projects with limited space available. Unlike traditional swinging doors that use valuable floor space and often cover and damage furniture and the wall behind it, sliding doors do not take space other than a couple of inches extra inches on your wall. This arrangement gives you more freedom and will make your room feels larger.

4. Easy to install

Different from traditional doors, sliding barn doors are very straightforward to install. The barn door installation process consists of installing hardware to the wall or support header and then attaching the slabs to the track. For standard door sizes, two people should be more than enough to complete the installation process safely.

7. Eco-friendly

Wood is one of the world's most renewable resources, and producing wood products uses far less energy, carbon, and water than other raw materials.

Managed forests are valuable for the wood they produce, the carbon dioxide they absorb, and the oxygen they provide. Wood is a safer choice for interiors than plastics or other synthetic materials that make harmful off-gassing and will take centuries to disintegrate once discarded.
