Have you ever started a project and realized you’ve gotten yourself in way over your head? Don’t worry, it happens to the best of us! Here at Artisan we want to make sure your barn door experience goes as smoothly and seamless as possible, so we put together a list of the five most important things you need to know before purchasing one of our barn doors!
- Material Options
All of our wood barn doors are made of solid wood with anti warping technology. We’ve seen our wood barn doors look great inside and outside the home, but most commonly found in bedrooms, bathrooms, or kitchens. We also have several metal door options with many different glass style inserts for a more elegant or modern styled home. Each door can be customized by finish, size, and hardware to get that exact look and feel you are going for.
Some other material items to consider are whether or not you want a lock, handle, or header for your barn door. These items are easily included in each purchase and can put the finishing touches on your custom barn door!
Use a metal door with glass inserts or a wood door with glass inserts for a room that needs less privacy. These types of doors will help a room feel more open and inviting.

- Cleaning a Barn Door
For doors made of knotty alder wood and finished in a stain, any furniture polish will do, however, make sure to wipe with the grain of the door.
For doors finished in a paint, use a sponge or cloth to wipe down the door with warm water and dish soap, then give your door a good rinse with a dampened cloth.
For metal doors use any all-purpose cleaner starting from the top and working your way down to the bottom.
