Double Bypass Sliding Barn Doors
Barn doors make for a stylish and space-saving addition to any home, but you’ll gain added function and features when you choose bypass sliding barn doors designed to add utility to both small and large spaces, from doorways with minimal surrounding wall space, to multiple entries on the same wall. What benefits will you enjoy when you choose bypass sliding barn doors from White Shanty?
Attractive, Versatile Design
Like other barn doors, bypass models are designed to deliver the space-saving function you crave, as well as provide timeless appeal to your interior. However, bypass sliding barn doors are special because they operate on two tracks, with one door sliding behind the other, effectively "bypassing" it.
This means that you can utilize a much smaller track on the wall above your door frame, making this style ideal for smaller living spaces where a larger barn door would prove oversized for available wall space. In addition to providing the superior function you need, you’ll also enjoy a slew of options for attractive bypass barn door designs, including:
You can also choose custom sizing to perfectly fit your space, select from a variety of hardware options, including door handles and locks, and even add soft close features. In other words, you have every opportunity to choose the sliding bypass barn doors that perfectly suit your needs, your interior design style, and your personal aesthetic.
Benefits of Bypass Sliding Barn Doors
Bypass sliding barn doors are different than normal sliding barn doors because one door slides behind the other and bypasses it. This bypass configuration is more convenient in spaces where a full sized sliding barn door won’t fit, or when you want to be able to open half of the door.
Bypass barn doors are especially useful for closets and pantries where adjacent wall space is limited, and you only need access to half of the doorway at a given time. Bypass doors are different than double barn doors, which cannot slide behind each other and still require more wall space.
Best Placement for Bypass Barn Doors
Bypass sliding barn doors are ideally suited for placement over smaller openings where you don’t have a lot of wall space. They’re perfect for storage areas like closets or pantries, and they can also conceal openings for bedrooms, bathrooms, laundry rooms or closets, and other living spaces.
Although bypass sliding barn doors are a great solution for small spaces, they are equally well suited to providing a division between larger spaces like a living room and dining room, for example, or between the main house and a sun room. This versatile option can provide an elegant transition between spaces, no matter how limited or expansive available wall surface is.
Measuring for Bypass Barn Doors
Accurate measurements are essential to ensuring you enjoy the coverage you crave, paired with a track that fits into even the smallest available wall space. You'll want to measure not only the entry your bypass barn doors will cover, but also the wall around it (vertically and horizontally) to make sure that both doors and track hardware are accounted for when creating your custom doors.
