New Barn Door Designs

Custom barn doors come in a variety of styles and designs. Therefore, to determine the right door for your barn, you need to first pick the right type of barn door for your property and your needs. The most popular options include:


Decide on the Finishes

Last but not least, you need to decide on the finishes. Do you want your Dutch door to be the focal point of your white barn? Try painting the trim white and the rest of the door a bold solid color like “Barn Red.” Would you like your new custom sliding door to blend in seamlessly? Try minimalizing the trim and going with a color similar to the rest of the barn.

Whatever you choose, don’t forget the details. Trim, paint, and other barn door finishes can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of your barn.
