A Handcrafted Sliding Barn Door With Farmhouse Charm
Nothing evokes rustic charm quite like a barn door in a traditional brace style. It's one of our best-selling barn door styles because it's a timeless classic. Four solid wood vertical planks are anchored to two horizontal rails at the top and bottom, with a diagonal brace for a Z-effect. You can opt for a pre-assembled door, or for a DIY option, where we send you the planks to assemble for a weekend project. You know, if you're the type who loves to build things yourself. We make this door in your choice of twenty wood species, which means that it will work with your unique style and prefrences. If your decor leans more towards the rustic and casual, then Knotty Alder or American Ash will fit in flawlessly. Likewise, if you love luxe textures and deep contrasts, then exotic species like Wenge or Bubinga will create that glamorous touch.
A sliding barn door is one of the most high-impact ways to instantly upgrade your space. Add visual interest and architectural heft to any room that needs it. Plus, sliding barn doors are a space-saving solution where swinging doors can be cumbersome. We love the Z brace barn door for use in pantries and linen closets, or in tight hallways. Barn doors are also optimal for home offices or children's playrooms.
What decor style works best with a Z brace barn door? Rustic styles, including all the farmhouse variations, are a natural fit (French farmhouse, industrial farmhouse, modern farmhouse, etc). But this door's simple design makes it more versatile than you might think. We love it for:
Skilled artisans make all our doors by hand onsite in Gig Harbor, a small seaport town on the Puget Sound in Washington State.
RealCraft offers twenty different wood species from budget-friendly to exotic and rare. One of the reasons we love real wood so much is that it carries the character of its natural habitat, which means wood species respond differently to humidity and temperature conditions. If you aren't sure which wood species to pick, call us at 1-253-853-3815.
For frequently asked questions about choosing a door and hardware see our FAQ page. If you're not sure what species is right for your space, 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 are not 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 damage in transit.
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 1-253-853-3815 and we’ll be happy to help!
If you wish to customize the door even further, we can make your dream door a reality! 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 1-253-853-3815.
When determining the size of your barn door, we recommend that the door overlaps the doorway to minimize gaps and provide some sound-muffling for privacy. An inch of overlap on each side is a good rule of thumb for barn doors. For example, a 36” x 80” doorway would need a 38” x 81” sliding barn door. If you would like more sound sealing, then a 2-inch overlap on either side is best. To make sure it looks as intentional as possible, your barn door should also completely cover any molding on the door opening when closed. So if you have molding, you’ll need to factor that into your measurements as well.
We recommend adding a clear finish to your door to protect it and ensure that it is eligible for coverage under our warranty. A clear finish not only protects your door, it also enhances the door’s beauty while preserving its natural, unique texture. Clear finish brings out the color and detail of the wood grain. Please note: all DIY barn door kits ship unfinished, and must have finish applied to them shortly after delivery.
We offer the following finish options:
White Primer: Added to Paint Grade Hardwood. For this option, we use only high-quality hardwoods like European Beech or Red Grandis. These species provide a smooth surface for paint.
Clear Satin Eurofinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that conditions, seals, and finishes the wood.
Oil Stain EuroFinish by Osmo: A premium hand-rubbed hardwax oil that stains, seals, and finishes the wood.
