How wide can you get barn doors?
Wide barn doors can be anywhere from four to seven feet wide! Depending on your door opening and how much clearance you have to either side of the opening, you can get a VERY wide barn door for your home! If you have a large opening but your ceilings aren't very tall, make sure to consider the proportions of your door and how the grid pattern will look enlarged and stretched out. Some styles look better as wide barn doors than others. If you're nervous about the grid pattern and what it might look like enlarged and stretched out, you can always exercise the idea of double barn doors. However, selecting a barn door style with a simple grid pattern is always a safe idea no matter how wide you desire the door to be.
How to Integrate a Wide Barn Door into Your Home Decor
Wide barn doors lay flush with the wall making them very easy to put anywhere in the home. However, wide barn doors are most commonly found in entryways. You can close off the space to the right or left or your entryway with a gorgeous metal and glass wide barn door without completely closing it off. Wide barn doors make great noise barriers and room dividers without sacrificing beauty or style. The bigger the better right?
Another great way to integrate a wide barn door into your home is in a loft area or hallway at the top of a staircase that overlooks the living room. Wide barn doors create beautiful and great focal points that will effortlessly guide your guests' eyes up the staircase and to the barn door.
