Transform Your Home With These 5 Unique Places to Install Custom Barn Doors

We’ve been seeing the barn door craze come to full fruition in the last few years. Used to easily and artistically separate rooms and cover closets, barn doors provide an opportunity to customize and personalize your home. Step outside mainstream trends and find unique places to install your custom barn doors, including around windows and media centers, cabinets, exteriors, kids play areas, and more.


Windows and Media Centers

Trade in your standard shutters and curtains for a set of barn doors. This simple change is the update you need to bring a hint of rustic style into your living space. Indoor window treatments range from the iconic sliding barn door to interior shutters and bifold shutters. Barn door window treatments not only add style to your home, but they also provide valuable home solutions. Barn door window treatments easily blackout light and provide insulation for lower energy bills.  Take a look at these unique barn door designs and contact us today to design custom window treatments for your interior.

As with window treatment styles, barn doors are versatile and can be used to decorate and hide away entertainment centers. Slide your TV out of sight when you have guests, or just want the family to unplug for a few hours. Simply uncover the entertainment system when you’re ready to kick back, relax, and catch up on your favorite shows.

After exploring these unique, custom barn door pieces, we’re going to take a look at unique places we can use the standard sized barn door. Barn doors are often used to separate living spaces, including living rooms, dining rooms, and kitchens. Barn doors are also often found separating large closets from bedrooms. Consider installing a barn door to hide away storage areas and pantries, bathrooms, home offices, and mudrooms.

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.

If you're just replacing a slab, fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab. If you're purchasing your slab with a jamb then a good rule of thumb is to measure your rough openings width and remove 2", that will be the width you want to input on the site. For height measure from the floor to the top of the rough opening and remove 2.25", this will be the height you need to input for the height.

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.

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

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.
