Preparation What are the first steps before I start my project?
To help your barn door project go smoothly, follow these steps before you start:
Choose your door style: You're no longer limited to the classic aesthetic of barn doors. KENT carries a wide range of barn doors from Colonial Elegance. They offer a wide range of style doors, from your traditional barn door to full-tempered frosted glass doors for a more modern look.
Gather tools: You'll need basic tools such as a level, drill, stud finder, and measuring tape, as well as safety equipment.
Measure accurately: Before beginning an installation, you must first measure your doorway correctly, including the frame and the barn door you want. Certain door models come with instructions for determining how much space above the frame you need for the rail and the length of the door, typically 6-8 inches. Double the width of your doorway to ensure you can open and close it and the length of your rail. Make sure there is enough room between your door and the wall to avoid damaging wires or switches. You may adjust the bumpers on your door to find the most suitable rolling position. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for measuring requirements, particularly the gaps between the door and the walls.
