Where to Install a Barn Door
The History of a Barn Door
Historically, barn doors were hung outside of barns, sheds, and outbuildings. These sliding doors were used more for function than flair and became popular because it allowed the farmer to easily open doors without the fear of wind catching such giant doors.
Benefits of a Sliding Barn Door
For any room that is low on floor space, a sliding door may be just what you need to optimize square footage. Standard hinged doors can take up several square feet while sliding doors take up just inches. This feature is perfect for small spaces like laundry rooms, bathrooms, and closets.

Swapping out a plain builder grade hinged door for an eye-catching barn door is both satisfying and stylish.

Styles of Barn Doors
Sawmill Designs carefully chose several designs to fit the needs of varying styles. Our Lexington and Wynnbrook are a more traditional, farmhouse style.

What is my barn door made of?
Our barn doors are made of live sawn white oak, a wood known for its durability and beauty. You can also opt to have your door wrapped in authentically reclaimed barnboard.
What does the other side of the door look like?
Sawmill Designs currently offers three different types of doors: board & batten, mortise & tenon, and laminated. Board & batten doors have a design on the front and plain, smooth backs. Mortise & tenon doors feature the same panel design on each side. Mortise & tenon doors are often much heavier for this reason. The laminated style of door features wood veneer wrap around a very sturdy core. The edges are banded in solid wood as well so the core is not visible. Both sides of laminated doors are the same pattern. See list below for which of our barn doors are which type.
Board & Batten: Aberdeen | Wynnbrook | Lexington
Mortise & Tenon: Charleston | Sanibel | Paisley
Laminated: Annfield | Rochelle
