The Narrows Five Panel Swinging Barn Door

With its versatile, classic, and elegant look, the New Narrows Five Panel Swinging Barn Door can easily become a focal point in the decoration scheme! Make it your own by building it with your favorite species and glass option. Perfect for Mid-Century inspired decoration.

Inspired by our original Five Panel Horizontal Sliding Glass Barn Door, the new Narrows Five Panel also counts with five horizontal glass panels. However, different from its cousin, the Narrows Five Panel Swinging Barn Door has narrower glass panels and larger horizontal wood planks. The Narrows Five Panel Swinging Barn Door  is a very versatile door design and will match well with many popular decoration styles, including:

  • Mid-Century Decor;
  • Bohemian Decor;
  • Traditional Decor;
  • Shabby Chic Decor.

The Narrows Five Panel Swinging Barn Door is suitable for interiors and exteriors, residential and commercial projects. Barn Doors are a practical door solution and can be installed in any part of your home or business. Some popular residential barn door applications include:

  • Office
  • Room
  • Laundry Room
  • Kitchen

Modern Swinging doors are also a popular door solution among businesses and are very popular in museums, clinics, spas, coffee shops and restaurants, and many more!


Fun Fact: The name "Narrows" not only describes the glass panels' size but is also a tribute to the Narrows Bridges that connects the city of Tacoma in the town of Gig Harbor, where RealCraft lives! 

The Narrows Five Panel is also available as a Sliding Barn Door


Wood Species

RealCraft offers over 20 wood species, including inexpensive and premium options, such as:

  • Alder
  • Maple
  • Wenge
  • Zebra Wood

The wood species play a considerable role in the door's final look, so make sure to consider all the possibilities! 

Keep in mind that wood is a natural material with unique properties. Every wood species is different and will react differently to various weather conditions. For example, if your door will be in an exterior area, it is a good idea to explore native wood species from your location as they will do much better with the climate conditions over the years. That's not the case for interior doors, though. Since your home's internal temperature is usually controlled, pretty much any wood species will last for decades keeping its visual appeal and natural properties.


Glass Options

Another key element for your Narrows Five Panel Swinging Barn Door's overall look is the glass option, so make sure to consider privacy when building your door. Choose from the standard clear glass or the etched option for more privacy.

We highly recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and make sure that it is eligible to be covered by our warranty.


Each species of wood we offer boasts its own unique characteristics. Finishing your door with a clear finish will not only protect it, but enhance the beauty of the wood by bringing out the striking color and detail of the grain. We offer Osmo clear satin finish, which is a hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions and coats the wood; or clear urethane, which is a plastic sealing coat that is water-resistant and more durable for environments that can cause lots of wear and tear on a door.

White primer can be added to the Paint Grade Hardwood option. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint.

For frequently asked questions about choosing a door and hardware see our FAQ page. To see sample swatches and descriptions of wood species, take a look at the photo below, or our wood buying guide here. If you're having trouble deciding, or want to see the wood in person, you can order samples here.


Please note that doors will ship separately from sliding hardware when purchased together. Doors are pictured with hardware for context. Sliding hardware is sold separately, and not included with the purchase of a door. Doors will not be pre-drilled for hardware. If you order a door and a hardware kit, we are unable to ship hardware installed on doors due to the risk of shipping damage.


We designed these doors with interior applications in mind. We don't recommend exterior use, and can't guarantee against warping or damage if you install your door outside. To have this door specially crafted for exterior use, call us at 1-800-694-5977and we will be happy to help!


As stated above, we are happy to accommodate requests for customizations; however, please understand that customization will add to the lead time. If you need more than 10 doors, or if your project requires special consideration, please call 1-800-694-5977. We'd be happy to help!

Standard interior swinging doors and pocket doors are typically 36” x 80.” When choosing a sliding barn door, we recommend that the door overlaps the doorway slightly to minimize gaps. An inch of overlap on each side is a good rule for barn doors. In this case, a 36” x 80” doorway would need a 38” x 81” sliding barn door.

For special applications, please call our support team at 1-800-694-5977 to ensure you choose the correct size.

Door handing is determined from the outside of a room. If the hinges are on the left side, the door has left handing. If the door swings into the room (away from you, standing outside the room), it is a left-hand inswing door. If it swings toward you, out of the room, it is a left-hand outswing, or left-hand reverse door. The opposite is true of right hand doors – the hinges will be on the right side. If the door swings into the room (away from you), it is a right-hand inswing door. If it swings toward you, out of the room, it is a right-hand outswing, or right-hand reverse door.


In cases where there isn’t a clear “inside” or “outside” to determine handing (i.e., the door connects two rooms), open the door and stand with your back against the hinges. If the door is on your left, it’s a left-handed door. If the door is on your right, it’s right-handed. If you are still unsure, don't worry! We'll be happy to help you make sure you select the right handing. Just give us a call at 1-800-694-5977, or click the chat bubble on the right to chat with one of our customer support agents!
