Barn doors are not as common and don’t have a modern home appeal. However it is rustic and gives the home a country likeness. This option is set up with a metal railing on the top. The barn door slides easily from side to side closing the necessary space and avoiding swinging.
If your budget is limited, a door manufactured in pine, hemlock or a more obscure hardwood such as sapele or idigbo could fit the bill. You can also save money by purchasing an unfinished door to stain or paint at home. At the other end of the scale, an oak door may cost more initially but will look great and last many years. Don’t forget to allow for door furniture in your budget, particularly a good lock – make sure you get one specified as anti-drill, anti-bump and anti-pick.
This is one of the biggest obstacles for using doors. Although we can use some stainless steel that combines iron, chromium, and many other elements. It can be a little expensive if we want great corrosion resistance and thus, durability. Stainless steel can get marked up with fingerprints and grease, develop discolouration, scratches and eventually rust. In coastal areas, the corrosion issues get worse decreasing the useful life of the steel door, so the maintenance with protective layers of paint is periodically needed.
