If you’re looking for budget-friendly barn doors to save space in your home, look no further. I conducted a month of research and installed 3 different barn doors and barn door kits in our home and found the most affordable barn door kits for the farmhouse look. Barn doors are trendy and I can see why… they help save space in your home and the effort to install and add a door to your home is minimal compared to the standard interior door with a door frame. Adding a sliding barn door to our master bedroom increased the functionality and the return on investment for our home.
This shop has been compensated by Smart Standard. All opinions are mine alone.
The previous owners of our house had installed the master bedroom closet door inside the frame (so the door opened inward, rather than outward) and we could never fully close the door because our clothes would catch when trying to close it! However, the reason why the door was installed to open inward was the lack of space in the bedroom (it was impossible to install a traditional door any other way). I knew that removing the “traditional” closet door and installing a sliding barn door was the best option to make the closet look and feel better.
Updating the closet door with a sliding barn door made our closet more functional and increased the space in our home. After we installed the sliding barn door and barn door hardware to our master bedroom closet door, we could finally close the door!
How Much Does a Barn Door Cost?
The cost os a barn door depends on how handy you are. If you are experienced with wood-working tools, then you can build your own. If you have no tools and don’t want to try building a barn door, then purchasing a barn door is probably the best way to go. This barn door is well priced and available to ship from Amazon.
Where To Find Interior Sliding Barn Doors For Sale
Amazon has several options for Interior Sliding Barn Doors but I prefer to buy interior barn doors and barn door hardware from Smart Standard. We have the Solid Cypress Wood Panelled sliding barn door on our master bedroom closet and it was a great price compared to barn doors at Lowes or barn doors at Home Depot. The Smart Standard 36-inch ready-to-assemble sliding barn door was easy to put together and the wood is natural so you can stain the door or paint it white.
The Smart Standard K-shape single sliding barn door is a #1 Best Seller on Amazon and I can see why!
- You can’t beat the price! I looked at sliding barn doors for a month and Smart Standard offers the best price.
- High-Quality Cypress Wood. The door is heavy-duty hard-wood. The quality is impeccable and looks great.
- Easy to Install. We assembled and installed the barn door in less than 30 minutes.
Where To Find Barn Doors Hardware
I found the best barn door hardware on Amazon at Smart Standard. We used the Smart Standard 8-foot heavy duty double barn door hardware to create a privacy door in our living room and office and it was easy to install and affordable.
For our single barn door in our master bedroom closet, we used the Smart Standard 36-inch Solid Cypress Wood Panelled sliding barn door. This DIY barn door looks rustic, is easy to install, and is a great price. This door was extremely affordable and convenient. I was able to put it together in about 30 minutes and had it stained the same day. This door is solid and heavy hardwood. I would recommend this over buying an already assembled door for $300+ because the Smart Standard doors are better quality than what you get in the big box stores.
