Purchasing your sliding barn door hardware - a few things to consider

The sliding barn door has become and architectural element that brings interest in your home space and since we design the hardware to be as DIY as possible, it should be a piece of cake installing it yourself - we provide detail instruction to make it as easy as possible for you to install. Right. There are a few things to consider when purchasing a sliding barn door hardware kit:

  1. There is an existing door that you are planning to use - Let it be a left over interior door or a sentimental, interesting barn door that will accentuate the look of your space - it should be at least 2" wider than your door opening. We recommend that overlap for privacy reasons.
  2. If you don't have a door yet and would like us to fabricate one for you - we offer various style of barn doors and you can choose to have it fabricated using new wood and stain to the colour of your liking, or using reclaimed barn boards at very affordable price. (Starting at $220). Please see below for door styles, and if you don't see one that suits you, please let us know and we will work with you to build one to your exact specification. Barn door style
  3. There is door trim at the door opening - It is recommended that your door should be 1/2"-1" higher than the door opening + door trim.
  4. There are baseboard & quarter round - How thick are they?  Please let us know when ordering so that we can accommodate the thickness.

We always clarify all these details with you when you inquire but we thought that it would be informational to have it here.
