Things to Keep in Mind

  • Make sure there is enough wall space when taking measurements. At least double the door size when estimating the dimensions of the rail kit.

  • Watch out for light switches, electrical sockets, or anything else that could obstruct the door from opening or closing.

  • Some door trims and baseboards can obstruct the barn door from operating correctly. A supporting board may be required to correct these issues.

  • Barn doors do not come with locks. However, there are several aftermarket solutions that can be added.
