What Size Barn Door Do I Need?
When measuring an opening for a barn door there are 5 key measurements to take into account. The width of your opening, the height of your opening from the floor to the top of the opening, the space between the top of the opening to the ceiling, and the width of the right and left walls of your opening.
For the width of your barn door we recommend at least a 4" overlay. For example, if you have a 30" opening you would order at least a 34" barn door.
For the height of your barn door we recommend at least a 1" overlay. For example if you have an 83" opening you would order at least an 84" barn door.
