Texans didn’t invent barn doors, but they have certainly taken advantage of them both on the farm and in their homes. The sliding barn door is incredibly adaptable, working well in a tight space for cupboards, halls, and cabinets. Styles can vary, too, from basic Shaker-style to something more inventive like the ones made from antique French doors (pictured a few shots below). How attractive they end up being and how smoothly they operate depends on the track system you use—at the end of this post you’ll find images of sliding door hardware and the great online resource that has them all.
