Common Applications

How can you tell which door will work best for you?  There are three applications that are common in this style of door, bypass, bi-parting, and single.  The single door is the application that is the most common, sliding either right or left.  This type will work great for standard openings or smaller openings, assuming there is enough space for the door to slide all the way in one direction. 

This is great for openings that are larger as well, you will need to have a wall that is big enough to be able to accommodate the door being opening.  You can look around to see which style is best for you, bypass, single, or bi-parting.  If you still aren’t sure, then it might be helpful for you to image what each of these looks like and then measure to ensure there is enough space for the door/doors to open.

These great doors can range from completely rustic to slightly, depending on your personal preference.  The options can seem nearly limitless when it comes to these doors, as there are so many styles and sizes to choose from.

Functionality

You might also want to think about adding elements that are more functional to your door.  There are doors that may have mirrors, chalkboards, windows, et cetera, the options endless when it comes to these add-ons.  You can also consider adding elements to your door after purchase if you have an element in mind that you are not able to find while you are shopping, or you can even custom order your door to be exactly what you are looking for.

Your barn door is already functional in the aspect that it helps you to save space because it does not swing to open and close.  When you have a swinging door you have to clear the floor space around the door, making this space basically useless in your home, but with barn doors, very little space is used for the door to open other than the wall space.

2Where Will It Be Placed

You need to think long and hard about the placement of your barn door.  While these doors are great option, they may not work great in every situation.  For example, if you are looking to replace the bathroom door with a barn door you need to know that it may not butt up close enough to the wall in order to provide complete privacy, so keep little things like this in mind when making your decision.
