Barn Door Styles for Home Design

Whether you love hopping on the trend train or you prefer marching to the beat of your own stylish drum, the barn door is a way to embrace flawless style and functionality in your home. Not only is the barn door a functional way to separate rooms and living spaces, but the barn door also provides an opportunity to express personal style and bring artistry into your home.

Explore these unique barn door styles and then contact us at Rustica Hardware to craft the perfect fit for your home.

 

Embrace Practicality: Mirrored Barn Doors

We’ve all fallen in love and become completely dependant on the mirrored closet door. These doors make any room look bigger and provide practicality when getting ready for the day. Replace standard, mundane, six-panel closet doors with sliding mirror doors.

Keep an Eye Out: Barn Doors with Windows

Not ready to separate your space completely? Let’s install barn doors with windows. Design your new doors with paneled windows or large windows, clear glass or frosted glass. Maintain some semblance of separation without completely cutting off your access to other rooms with windowed doors.

Maximize Space: Swinging vs Sliding Barn Doors

A huge advantage of sliding barn doors is that they maximize the space in your home. You can stop worrying about tight corners and awkward spaces by replacing swinging doors with a set of sliding doors on an exposed track. The track evenly distributes the weight of the door, enabling you to select a sturdy door that fits the style of your home.

If you love that grand feeling of swinging open a set of double doors, find a lighter set of doors that will hold up on hinges and still match your family’s unique style.

 

From Wood to Metals to Chalkboard Surfaces: Unique Barn Door Materials

When you think of a barn door, your first thought is likely of a thick, sturdy door made of distressed or repurposed wood. While wood is traditional (and versatile!), explore other creative materials for your custom barn door. Choose practicality with the chalkboard door, or embrace an edgier attitude with a metal surface door.

Rustica Lock Measuring Guide

Measuring Distance

This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

Hole Placement

Introducing an easy solution to little ones slamming your barn door! Our new Closure soft-stop system slows you door down before it makes contact with the track stop. This ensures a smooth stop every time. The Closure system has been specially designed to be universal with all Rustica Hardware flat track systems, no matter the length of track this product will work with your flat track system. Product comes with (2) Closure mechanisms (one for each side of the track system) to protect your system whether it’s being opened or closed.

“Slab” refers to the door only where “Pre Hung” includes the door, hinges, and the door jamb pre-assembled with Rustica standard hinge positions.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Standard is 5'-1/2" above door knob boring.

Our designer corbels are sold in pairs. Each pair of mantel corbels is made of solid alder wood and designed for use with our floating mantel shelves. Corbels are easy to install and add a substantial design feature to your mantel space. Corbels will come finished to match the color and texture of your selected mantel.

All of our solid wood doors are made from the finest grade knotty alder or poplar. The species of wood that a door is made from is based on the finish that is selected for that door. Knotty Alder is more rustic and full of knots that are prevalent in the finished look. Poplar is a cleaner wood in that it has less knots for a more seamless look.

Please use the below guide if you're interested knowing what species of wood your door will be made from and the type of look you should be expecting:

This is the width, height and thickness of the door itself. If you are replacing a slab (door without the jamb), fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab.

To measure rough opening height, measure the distance from the stud above the door opening to the floorboard at the bottom of the door opening.

To measure rough opening width, measure the distance from the stud on one side of the door opening to the stud on the opposite side of the opening.

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.

We Recommend:

3-1/2" hinges for 1-3/8" doors, 4" hinges for 1-3/4" doors and 4-1/2" hinges for 2-1/4" doors.

Select which side of the door you'd like your pull/handle to be located when facing the front side of the door (the side of the opening in which you can see your track/rolling system). The back side handle will be placed on the same side of the door as your front side handle.

NOTE: The current lead time for Brushed Steel and Brushed Stainless Steel on the Box system type is 7 weeks.

Hinge Placement Instruction

To identify hinge positions, measure from the TOP of the door to the top of each hinge.
