There is something very attractive about barn doors. They are stately and picturesque, evoking the warmth feel. Barn doors for indoor purposes can create a very unique rustic look that can enhance the ambience of any room. Barn doors are doors designed for use on a barn or carriage house. In addition to being used on barns, barn doors can also be utilized in residential architecture, and for some types of commercial structures as well. There are a number of variants on the traditional barn door available from companies which manufacture barn doors, and people can also build their own, if they have specific idea of what they have in mind and no commercial manufacturer is meeting their needs. Barn doors can be installed by a contractor or by someone who is skilled at tasks like hanging doors.
The classic example of a barn door is a large sliding door. Sliding barn doors are designed to allow large equipment through, with many barns having a set of two which can be configured in a variety of ways. Sliding barn doors also may have a smaller inset door, so that someone who wants to enter the barn without opening the large rolling door can open the smaller door to get in.
