You can find panel barn doors constructed in a wide variety of configurations; from simple two panel barn doors to elaborate panel doors constructed from six or more separate panels. The panels can feature the same material as the barn door, or they can be composed of contrasting materials, with glass being a popular choice. Panel barn doors make for creative entryways, and can be used as single doors or as a double barn doors.
Panel barn doors are constructed from vertical panels of wood, called stiles, and horizontal panels, called rails. For this reason you also may hear a panel barn door called a stile and rail door. Junctions of stiles and rails create panels, and the total number of stiles and rails used in the barn door’s construction determines how many panels the barn door will ultimately feature.
What’s the Difference Between a Panel Door and a Flush Door?Flush doors are the counterparts to panel doors. Flush doors are constructed from one continuous piece of material, be that solid wood or another barn door slab material like metal. Unlike a panel barn door, a flush barn door is completely flat on both sides.
Panel barn doors are extremely popular in residential homes. They are strong and durable, while also offering a level of visual interest that flush door can’t typically compete with. Many home owners find the panel barn door an elegant and refined as a choice for interior doors, while their strength makes these doors excellent candidates for exterior sliding doors as well. In addition, the panel construction allows for mixed materials, and if a homeowner chooses glass panels, that allows the barn door to let light pass into or through the home.
