Shaker Barn Doors for Style, Appearance & Durability
You’ll see we offer more than ten styles of barn doors. They come in a range of sizes, designs and finishes and we can appreciate that it might be difficult to select the wood and style that will meet your aesthetic and design needs.
If it’s of any help in making your selection, many of our customers have given us great feedback on the Shaker barn door. Made of durable Acacia wood these Shaker barn doors can be used as exterior or interior barn doors.
A bit about the design and the quality of the Acacia wood we use in the creation of this Shaker sliding barn door may be in order. As you may know, the Shaker movement began in the 18th century and survived in America until the 1920s in any numbers. An offshoot of the Quakers, they had a simple lifestyle and designed furniture to match. Their furniture designs were simple, minimalist with few decorative features, durable and functional or utilitarian. At Trending Home Décor we’ve built our interior Shaker sliding barn doors to reflect those values. With our Shaker barn doors, the simple five plank construction contained within a solid frame captures the essence of a Shaker design that will add an elegant simplicity to your home or office.
Constructed of Acacia wood these exterior or interior barn doors are durable and functional but attractive as well. Acacia wood is known for its water resistance and durability. If you’re concerned about sustainability this Shaker sliding barn door may be for you. Acacia is an eco-friendly choice of wood as these trees grow quickly in abundance in many regions of the world. Some of our wood is plantation grown in Vietnam and its growth and cutting is monitored by the Forest Stewardship Council.
Acacia can withstand the elements so it’s suitable for use outside on your shed or garage. Inside, they will give you many years of service as a Shaker sliding barn door on a bathroom where there is often lots of moisture. Its inherent oils are similar to those found in teak but Acacia is considerably less expensive than its famous cousin. At Trending Home Décor we think that this Shaker barn door is an ideal linking of traditional style and a durable and attractive wood.

Our Shaker Interior Barn Door
What size doorway can our Shaker barn door cover? Our interior barn door is 40 inches wide, 84 inches tall and just shy of 1.5 inches thick. This size door will be perfect for doorways that are 32 to 36 inches wide. That would include most doorways in North America. This Shaker sliding barn door can also work in a 38-inch doorway. But in this case it only leaves one inch of coverage on each side when the door is closed. On this size of doorway it works best if there isn’t any trim around the doorframe. If you’re looking for elegant simplicity in an interior barn door then this Shaker sliding barn door may be just the model for you. While we’ve sung its praises for use as a bathroom door, it can serve just as successfully in your office, at the cottage or in your living room, dining room or on a cupboard. Its classic lines will not interfere with any other design features you have in the room.
