Sliding barn doors are traditionally rustic—often made with knotty or reclaimed woods, plank panels, or cross-bucks—like this 6′ wide by 7′ tall barn door with flat track hardware and large spoked wheels.
But sliding barn doors can be contemporary or even modern in design, with clean simple lines. For example, this 3-lite barn door, made with select Walnut wood (with Clear Coat factory finish) and White Lami glass, provides passage to the master bedroom of a contemporary-style home in Breckenridge, Colorado. Its sleek stainless steel hardware features a round bar and dual rubberized rolling wheels, mortised into the top of the door. Visible stainless steel bolts secure the hardware through the stile face, and accentuate the modern look.
Another example is this unique “slotted” design (with no glass), manufactured in select rift and quartered White Oak (displayed in Sun Mountain’s showroom in the San Francisco Design Center):
Modern barn doors can also be made with “flush door” construction. This 6’ wide x 7’ tall sliding barn door is made of African Mahogany wood with horizontal grain, finished in a factory-applied Clear Coat finish.
Last, the stile and rail door with 4-lites (below) is made with Select Walnut wood and Satin glass. This double barn door provides an eye-catching entrance to the master bath of a contemporary-style home in the exclusive Morrocroft neighborhood of Charlotte, North Carolina.
In addition to manufacturing barn doors, Sun Mountain distributes modern-style barn door hardware from leading suppliers.
