Innovative Custom Sliding Barn Doors

You can create a stunning effect in a room by adding custom sliding barn doors. You can do a pair of doors, or a larger single door. The combinations and designs are unlimited, and since they can be custom made, it is like putting a mural or artwork on your wall.

Sliding Barn Doors As An Option

Sliding barn doors are ideal for openings where a swinging door would not work due to spacing problems such as near stairs, or other furniture pieces. The specialty of custom designers is to make something that is difficult to find, and turning the concept into a focal point of a room.










The use of glass within the barn door itself adds another dimension to the look and style of your door. This can give you access to different levels of light as well as offering varying views of the outside. Glass comes in many different styles and cuts and makes your door that much more versatile.

              There is even the concept of placing the door on the wall with no opening behind it, simply to give a room more depth and character. How would you like to have a 10 foot door in the room? That is not a problem for your designer to achieve in a variety of different styles and colors.
