How Do Barn Doors Work?
Despite common opinion, barn doors aren’t complicated. Basically, there’s an individual door, in this case made of glass, a barn door track, a piece of hardware on top of the barn door holding it in place, and a wheel or wheels allowing the doors to slide back and forth.
Benefits and Considerations for Glass Barn Doors
There are numerous benefits to select sliding glass bar doors for your home. These include:
Additional natural light
A modern or rustic aesthetic
Serve as functional art
Applicable to any room
Although glass barn doors provide many benefits, they are not perfect. Downsides to glass barn doors include:
Not known for soundproofing properties
Provide less privacy than other door types
Can be loud as they slide across a track
May be difficult to install in buildings with angled or low ceilings
Customize Your Glass Barn Doors
Sliding barn doors can be all-glass or feature glass within a frame. Once you’ve settled on a glass barn door for your home and whether it will be all-glass or not, it’s time to decide on what glass you’d like to use.
There are a few different styles to choose from:
Textured glass: Textured glass has a design etched fully into the material. The textured glass category includes treatments like glue chip, rain, clear beveled and large leaf.
Decorative glass: Decorative glass has a surface design rather than a design etched fully into the glass. Frosted glass falls into this category.
Tinted or colored glass: Tinted glass can offer an additional layer of privacy to your barn door.
