What is the difference between side mount and top mount
Barn doors can be mounted in two ways, side mount or top mount. Side mount involves installing the hardware on the outer side of the door, facing towards the room. This style is ideal for those seeking a pronounced industrial-style appearance for sliding door hardware. It works particularly well with metal doors but requires more clearance between the door and ceiling to accommodate the decorative rollers. Although this style needs more space, it offers more durability and can support heavier loads, making it a suitable choice for solid wood or heavier doors.
Only the wheel is visible on the top mount, creating a minimalist appearance and drawing attention to the door as the room’s centerpiece. This option is suitable for low-ceilinged spaces, as it requires less clearance and is ideal for those who want to highlight the door.

You can follow these simple steps if you choose to install the top mount barn door hardware yourself.
Measure how much track you will need
Before installation, measuring the space where you plan to install your sliding door(s) is essential to determine the appropriate track length to order. For a single door, you will need a track that is double the width of the door, plus two to three inches. If installing double barn doors, ensure enough space on each side of the doorway to accommodate each door without obstruction. Carefully check for any obstacles, such as light switches or wainscoting, that could interfere with the door’s movement along the track.
Determine how high to hang the track
There’s some flexibility when it comes to the height of sliding doors. Generally, it’s recommended to have a minimum of half an inch available at the bottom of the door, with the mount placed at least 2.75 inches above the door frame. However, if you prefer to mount it higher and closer to the ceiling, you can do so. Just make sure to measure the space and ensure that there is enough room for the rollers and track to move without obstruction.
Hang track on the wall
Following the guidelines, use the spacers and lag bolts to hang the track. Check for wall studs and anchor the screws according to the wall type and instructions. It’s crucial to ensure that the wall can bear the weight of the track and door.
Mount the door hardware on the door
By following the instructions, install the barn door kit on top of the door. This is also the stage where you can add any extra details, such as hardware or door pulls that you have acquired. It’s recommended that a door handle be installed at approximately 36 inches above the floor.
Hang door on track and install door guides
With the help of a family member or friend, carefully lift the door onto the track and position it into place. Then, mark the placement for the bottom guide and securely screw it into position to provide stability to your newly installed sliding door. This will prevent it from wobbling, knocking against the wall, causing any scratches or scuffs, or producing any noise, and will provide it with additional stability.
