4 foot wide openings are often a dilemma for homeowners who want to maximize usage of available space. Although standard swing doors provide better soundproofing, they can be unwieldy and awkward with the way they swing into the room. In many cases, the answer is a barn door, as is the case for this homeowner in Menlo Park. The barn door that we installed claimed almost no space, while providing separation from the adjoining room.
This situation was particularly the case for a barn door we installed this past week in a older home in an affluent neighborhood. By using a barn door the homeowner was able to maximize usage of available space while adding a distinctive character to their home. As you might imagine from viewing these photos our customer was very pleased with the results.
