Barn Door Ideas for Your Kitchen

Open up the heart of your home

The kitchen: It’s the room where families flock together to share stories of their days, indulge in game nights, host holiday get togethers, and (of course) eat.

It’s amazing just how many hats one room of your home can wear. Although the kitchen is a functional place to cook and prepare meals, the look and feel of your kitchen makes it an inviting space to enjoy those meals with friends and family. All the more reason for it to express your own tastes. From stylish design to practical application — like conserving space and adding easy accessibility to your pantry or laundry room — you need a space that has it all. And a kitchen barn door can help give you exactly what you need and more.

Kitchen pantry barn door

Clearly the most important part of a pantry are the contents inside, but that doesn’t mean the door leading to your goodies has to be drab. A kitchen sliding pantry door can bring additional texture and character to your kitchen while saving some extra space when you have company. Just make sure you’ve got enough room on the wall to ensure that a sliding barn door can fit. The rest is up to you and your personal preferences, be it contemporary, classic or rustic chic.

Kitchen entrance

Treat your humble hearth to grand double doors to offset its importance as the heart of your home. Using a double sliding barn door to your kitchen’s entrance can give it that dramatic and stylish feel it deserves. Kitchen barn door ideas, like this remarkable double-doored entrance, can make guests feel like they’ve been given a warm welcome. Trust us, they’ll be impressed.

Additionally, creating such an entrance can help divide the rooms in your home and create more intimate spaces. So, if you’re looking to add some privacy between the kitchen, and say, a home office or dining area, then this is the perfect project to add more “rooms” to your home with the simple addition of a grand double barn door to section them off.

Kitchen cabinet barn door

Maybe the pantry door is too obvious a choice? Maybe the kitchen entrance is too extravagant? Maybe you need something a little more unique and tad subdued. That’s where sliding barn doors for kitchen cabinets can really make an impact. These subtle sliders integrated into your kitchen cabinets can add a beautiful aesthetic to the shelving style of your home.

Now that you’re armed with ideas to install or incorporate a sliding barn door into your kitchen decor, let’s talk about our favorite types and styles of sliding barn doors to pick from:

  • Rustic chic – Country charm meets contemporary class. This timeless style works perfectly as a pantry door or kitchen entranceway.
  • Glass – If you want a door to cover the pantry or block off the kitchen, yet still want the transparency to make the room feel more open while letting light in, glass sliding doors are your answer.
  • Neutral colors – Worried about a sliding barn door fitting into your décor scheme? Sticking with colors like white, tan, and grey can help your sliding door seamlessly blend into your kitchen’s existing look and feel.
  • Farmhouse – What’s a better way to showcase your sliding barn door than to get one that has a strong nod to the farm? This weathered, whitewashed look adds country charm and a historical feel to your kitchen.
  • Chalkboard – If you have kids or need to write reminders to pick up milk at the store, a chalkboard sliding door is both pretty and practical.

Whatever the use may be and whichever type you choose to move forward with, a sliding barn door can help the heart of your home never miss a beat!

Rustica Lock Measuring Guide

Measuring Distance

This is the measurement from the top of your door to where you'd like the lock handle. This measurement allows you the flexibility to place the locking mechanism where it will not interfere with any existing handles or fixtures pre-mounted to the door. You'll need at least 2-1/8" clearance below. See Picture

Hole Placement

Introducing an easy solution to little ones slamming your barn door! Our new Closure soft-stop system slows you door down before it makes contact with the track stop. This ensures a smooth stop every time. The Closure system has been specially designed to be universal with all Rustica Hardware flat track systems, no matter the length of track this product will work with your flat track system. Product comes with (2) Closure mechanisms (one for each side of the track system) to protect your system whether it’s being opened or closed.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Placement is measured from bottom of the door to the door bore hole.

Standard is 5'-1/2" above door knob boring.

Our designer corbels are sold in pairs. Each pair of mantel corbels is made of solid alder wood and designed for use with our floating mantel shelves. Corbels are easy to install and add a substantial design feature to your mantel space. Corbels will come finished to match the color and texture of your selected mantel.

All of our solid wood doors are made from the finest grade knotty alder or poplar. The species of wood that a door is made from is based on the finish that is selected for that door. Knotty Alder is more rustic and full of knots that are prevalent in the finished look. Poplar is a cleaner wood in that it has less knots for a more seamless look.

Please use the below guide if you're interested knowing what species of wood your door will be made from and the type of look you should be expecting:

This is the width, height and thickness of the door itself. If you are replacing a slab (door without the jamb), fill in the exact measurements of the existing slab.

To measure rough opening height, measure the distance from the stud above the door opening to the floorboard at the bottom of the door opening.

To measure rough opening width, measure the distance from the stud on one side of the door opening to the stud on the opposite side of the opening.

Measure the existing slab, that you're wanting to replace, from the top of the door to the top of each hinge. You will format your entry in this format: Hinge 1- 10" from top of door. Hinge 2- 22.

We Recommend:

3-1/2" hinges for 1-3/8" doors, 4" hinges for 1-3/4" doors and 4-1/2" hinges for 2-1/4" doors.

Select which side of the door you'd like your pull/handle to be located when facing the front side of the door (the side of the opening in which you can see your track/rolling system). The back side handle will be placed on the same side of the door as your front side handle.

NOTE: The current lead time for Brushed Steel and Brushed Stainless Steel on the Box system type is 7 weeks.

Hinge Placement Instruction

To identify hinge positions, measure from the TOP of the door to the top of each hinge.
