Close the Door! Were You Raised in a Barn…?

If you are like many people, when you were a kid, your parents often chided you, “Close the door! Were you raised in a barn?” Well, these days, you may not be living in a barn, but barn doors have become a chic and stylish home décor and architectural element. Mounted on barn door hardware, these doors lay flush against the wall and slide across the door frame on a track. These enclosures are perfect for homes with limited square footage or for open, airy living spaces. The clean lines and sleek, modern simplicity let light and air flow through your home uninterrupted.


At The Sliding Door Company, we offer barn door hardware that is attractive and guarantees safety. Each of our sliding doors offers a patented wheel-to-track locking mechanism that guarantees your door will never leave its sliding track. Each track comes with a dust prevention strip, and we are committed to doing our part to protect the environment; all of our barn door hardware is recyclable and easy to clean using mild products.


Of course, you also want your door to be attractive and to complement the design of your home. We offer frames and barn door hardware in a variety of styles and finishes. Our frames come in silver, white, charcoal, black, wenge, walnut, and maple, and all are made to last for years. The hardware also comes in a wide range of styles. Most customers choose a small, round or square handle, but we offer other styles, including levers and extended handles. Our wide variety of locks includes pull locks, latches, push locks, indent handles, and ball catches.


Our beautiful selection of doors and barn door hardware is the perfect fit for any small or open, airy home. And while you might still have to lecture the kids about closing the door, you may have to find a new phrase – perhaps, “Close the barn door! Don’t you know you live in a house?”
