Whether you want to replace broken doors or wish to enhance the inside of your home, a sliding barn door offers a refreshing change. Interior sliding barn doors are always flat against the wall, like a piece of art, and provide privacy, security, and charm to the home.
If you’ve decided that you want to add some style to your home by installing a barn door, let our guide help you choose the right interior sliding barn doors that complement your décor.
Choose The Right Color
You need to look at your room’s color tones. Do you have lots of browns, gold’s, and beiges colors? And want to select metal finishes to highlight the colors you already have in the room. Choose a sliding barn door that matches the color of your room. Go to the next step once you choose the right color.
Choose The Right Size
Sliding barn doors come in different sizes, so you need to know the size of your door. Most of us need calculators and tape measures to get the right size. To be sure:
- Measure the opening you want to cover.
- Measure the opening left and right if you’re going to use two doors.
- Ensure both sides of the opening have sufficient space for both doors to slide out.
Find The Right Height
It would be best if you determine how far you want the door track to be mounted. Measure opening from the floor to your door’s top edge if you will place your track right above the doorway. Try to deduct 1-inch to ensure that your door can slide very well without scratching the floor.
Determine Track Length
Now that you know the barn door size and height, it’s time to determine the track length you want to buy. Please measure the width and multiple it by two. You need a track length that is four times the width of one sliding barn door if you have a double door. You can even extend the track length if you wish.
Choose The Right Design
The sliding door hardware kits are the design piece. They come in simple designs depending on your style and budget. Search online for barn door kits to see the different designs available and select the right design for your door.
You need to pay attention to the price. A great way to avoid paying high costs is to do an image search for barn doors and see the different prices available. This will save you some money.
