Sliding Track Hardware

A great way to spice up any room in your home is with some interior sliding door hardware. Allow me to explain what this is and how you can set it up in your house to give extra style to any room.

People often refer to this type of door system as barn door hardware but it is not always used with barn doors. The idea behind it is to have a door that slides open and remains on the outside of the wall. This is not a pocket door that is hidden inside of the wall. When you spend a lot of money on a very nice looking, hand crafted door, you do not want it to be hidden inside of a wall. With sliding door tracks you can have your nice looking doors stay visible while they are both opened and closed. This works by mounting flat track hardware on the outside of the wall and then using rollers with which the door will be able to easily slide open and closed.

There are a few different styles and finishes that you can choose from when installing your own sliding track hardware. You can go with a more modern flat black look or you can get a white powdered coating on the metal for a more antique barn door hardware look. While they are mostly used for interior doors, you can use this same concept for outdoor doors as well. Just make sure that the hardware and doors are properly treated.
