The DIY kit comes with everything you need — steel rails, hangers, wheels, door stoppers, and floor guides — to hang a vintage or brand new door. Each set features beautifully finished steel that won’t scratch or show wear over time, plus rubber caps and nylon wheels to ensure sliding your door is quiet and smooth. And since they’re designed for doors ranging from 1 ¼” to 1 ¾” thick, you can choose the perfect piece for your home.
Industrial by Design, the makers of the kit, also sell a $40 mini version, which makes a rustic addition to any piece of furniture or set of cabinets. Set it up to slide over a small window, and you’ll have a focal point that’s much more interesting than your average set of drapes.
Since the product launched back in 2017, the barn door hardware kit has earned an impressive 4.5-star rating with reviewers praising its sturdiness, quality, affordable price point, and easy installation. According to shoppers, you don’t have to be a DIY expert or pro to set it up, making it a simple project you can tackle in a weekend.
“This is my second hardware kit from Industrial By Design. It is great hardware and the customer service is top notch,” one reviewer wrote. “I wish all companies were as customer driven as these folks are! Everyone that sees my two barn doors loves the look of the hardware.”
