A trend in the last few years has been the addition of the sliding barn door as an alternative to a traditional swing or pocket door inside the home.
Often these doors are a focal point and designed to be admired for their beauty and uniqueness — if not for their functionality.
Here at Dreambuilder we’ve had the opportunity to install a couple of barn doors. One, in Dreambuilder 18, was a traditional barn-style door fitting with the farmhouse style of the house. In Dreambuilder 17, we installed a frameless glass panel befitting the more contemporary nature of the home.
Rustica Hardware was our source for both these doors. They have a great line-up of doors of all styles and price points and lots of customization options.
We also came across this great article on Houzz titled “5 Questions to Ask Before Installing a Barn Door” — a good read if you’re considering adding this wonderful element to your new home.
