​Go Green with Real Carriage Door & Sliding Hardware

Posted by author Real Sliding Hardware publish date

We at Real Carriage Door agree with the old motto “waste not want not”. In fact, it’s impossible for us to be based in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and not care about all the nature that surrounds us. Being a tree hugger is in our blood, which is why we provide you with many sustainable options for your sliding doors and carriage doors.


Good news! It is possible to get a gorgeous wooden door without cutting down any extra trees. All of our Real Carriage Doors can be built out of reclaimed wood. What makes these doors so special is that they each come with their own story and no two doors are ever the same. The door’s character comes from its previous use. The small nail and bolt holes will have you wondering what unknown structure your door once held together. Old growth reclaimed wood has a patina, checks, and rust stains from old nails which reflect its time-worn endurance. These features might seem deficits to some, but we believe they show the stamina of this strong, beautiful wood. When you build your doors out of reclaimed wood, you are using wood that has stood the test of time.


What better way to get a barn door, then to get one that was actually built from a barn? Our Reclaimed Barn Wood Doors are crafted from authentic, salvaged barn wood. These doors add warmth and historic character to your home with the rich hues and textures of timeless barn wood. Built with Real Carriage quality, each door arrives ready to install, assembled with antiqued flat head screws.


Reclaimed Redwood Barn Doors are constructed from our limited stock of salvaged redwood. Authentic nail holes and distressing bring charm to these stunning, sought-after doors. Pair Real Sliding Hardware and Real Barn Doors for a complete look. Sliding hardware and barn doors are excellent for pantries, laundry rooms, master bathrooms, walk-in closets, offices, high-traffic areas, window shutters, and any interior space where every square foot matters!

So there you have it, you can save a tree without having to ever chain yourself to one. We encourage you to go green in other areas of your home as well. For example, a spider plant may sound spooky, but it’s great at cleaning the air in your house.
