You might wonder how a sliding barn door would fit into an Arizona home. With large openings into room such as offices, dens and bathrooms, Arizona homes are actually perfect for these fun doors. Add in the wood, paint and hardware used, and sliding barn doors can fit into any décor.

When we make sliding barn doors, we can use reclaimed wood or we can make a custom door out of new wood. Reclaimed wood provides a more authentic, weathered look, while a custom sliding barn door can be used for a more contemporary look. Sliding barn doors can be made from a variety of wood and use various hardware. Hardware is a very important part of the door. The type of hardware used can dramatically change the way the door fits with a room’s décor.

From casual and comfortable to modern and chic, a sliding barn door is more than a conversation piece, it’s functional. Barn doors are great for a home because they slide closed versus regular doors that open and close. This gives you more floor space and can act as a piece of art in the room it’s in. Some people may not even know it’s a functional door until you close it.
