A sliding barn door is a creative solution for rooms with a tight layout since it opens and closes without disrupting the layout of a space. Unlike pocket doors, you won’t have to tear out the wall to install this type of door. Here are some easy steps to adding some rustic charm to any room.


1.  Measure the doorway

Your first step should be to measure the width of the doorway (including the casings) and purchase a hardware kit with a track twice that width. Add the track to the top of the doorway.
