Today we are so excited to share with you a home project we have been working on with Rustica Hardware! Rustica Hardware is your go-to place to find all your needs for original and cool barn doors! There are many things we loved about the company, but our favorite was being able to order custom sized doors for our office!
The space where we wanted our barn doors was such an odd sized doorway and proportions, we were so glad they were able to make the doors and hardware to the sizes we needed. The cool thing about Rustica (besides being able to customize your door size, door finish, track size and hardware finish) is that they have a great design and manufacturing team that can bring your ideas to life. They really have a cool mentality: if you can dream it, they can build it!
We worked with Kristy to figure out what doors we wanted to get. We really liked working with a designer and would highly recommend it if you are going the custom door route. We liked being able to talk through measurements, hardware and options with someone that knew about the products and had seen our space in photos! If you don’t have the option to go into the Rustica Hardware showroom, they have a customer service number where someone can talk you through the measurements, order process, etc.
If you get the chance to visit the show room, do it! It’s great to see all the options in person, plus you may be able to sneak a peek at some of the doors being made! There is a little playground and fun area for kids to look around too if you have your kiddos with ya! There is also a great selection of darling home decor, a neat knob/handle section and other fun goodies!
With the Bypass system we are able to slide both doors to one side of the wall but only take up the size of one door. With this area being tight for space this was a great option for us! There are other track systems available which is great so you can find what will work for your home.
Since we went with the custom doors, it took about 9 weeks for the doors to get made and delivered. If you get standard doors, shipping is estimated around 2-3 weeks. If you live in the US, shipping is free for orders over $50. If you are out of the US they still do ship there but shipping is not included. When we got the doors, we were so excited to open them up!
Once you get your barn doors in the mail, next is the install process. Now you have the option to install the doors yourself or hirer a contractor to hang them for you. The doors come with instructions to install them, so if you are the do-it-yourself-type, go for it! They also have options to get the doors predrilled but you have to be very particular with the measurements, or just drill them yourself on location. Jake was awesome and did the installation for our barn doors. It took him a good full weekend to get up and paint a new header, put up the header, install the hardware and flush mounts, but it was worth it! I would imagine a flat track or something similar would be a bit quicker to install and get hung up since there is not as much hardware.
Now that our barn doors are up, we can’t imagine the space with out them. They added the perfect statement to the entry way and feel like the doors were made for the house! We are so happy with how the project turned out and are hoping to add another barn door to our home in the near future 🙂
