Barn doors are an emerging trend in New Zealand interiors in everything from new builds to 100-year-old homes and they’re a stark contrast to what might otherwise be utilised. The beauty of a barn door is not just in its functionality though, it’s in the visual appeal it creates. A sliding timber barn door with a black steel track adds an element of warmth to an interior, and acts as a standalone feature – a moveable piece of art.
Because BarnDoors offer a completely bespoke service, every door is customised to suit individual applications, from size, shape, timber and finish.
Each door and track is wholly manufactured in Tauranga out of either solid timber, MDF, steel, copper or engineered timber finishes. Solid timber doors are generally finished with stain or oil and made from cedar, American white oak, Baltic pine, macrocarpa or larch, depending on the preference of the client.
“We make doors to any height or width. They’re suitable for any interior application with the only limiting factor being available wall space for the door to slide across,” Barn Doors' Terry Walsh says.
