Sliding Barn Doors For Home Use
“You can give any door in your house a distinct character by installing a sliding barn door,” says Jan Sorenson, Rustica Hardware, Provo, Utah.
    The company makes various styles of sliding barn doors and mounting hardware designed for use both inside and outside. A variety of handles and latches are available to open and close the doors. The doors fit over the top of the door jamb and can cover a variety of door or window openings.
    Interior doors are made from knotty alder, and exterior doors from cedar. Some doors are also made from reclaimed barn wood. Door styles range from conventional to contemporary.
    “The doors can be customized to your preference. Large doors are commonly placed as a dividing wall between the living room and the dining area. They also act as a pocket door in a kitchen or pantry. Some people use them on their outdoor decks.”
    The doors come with all the hardware needed for assembly including spacers and door guides that prevent rubbing and bumping against walls. “The track comes with pre-drilled holes or can be ordered without holes, and lag bolts into the wall studs through a spacer,” says Sorenson.    
    Mounting hardware comes in a variety of finishes including flat black, dark bronze, and raw steel. Numerous other finish tones can be custom ordered at an extra charge. Sliding barn doors for homes can be found on the company’s website, www.rusticahardware.com. Prices range from $349 for a ranch barn door to $1,790 for a frosted glass barn door.
    The company also offers exterior sliding doors designed for use in barns and sheds, which you can check out at www.barndoorshardware.com or www.rusticahardware.com.
