Sliding and folding door hardware manufacturer, P C Henderson, has witnessed an ever increasing trend for its Rustic 80 barn door hardware over the past few years. The hardware has recently been specified for a home renovation project by first time buyers Reece Hall and Zoe Wood due to its unique features and space saving properties.
Located in the Kent countryside, Reece and Zoe purchased the property in June 2017. Built in the early 1900s, the 2 bedroom, semi-detached cottage was full of character but required a much needed renovation to help restore the property to its former glory. The 11 month renovation included a complete rewire, full house re-plaster, a full damp-proof course, new heating and plumbing system and a new kitchen and bathroom. The couple also required some sliding door hardware for the properties bedroom and bathroom doors.
“When planning to renovate the property, we agreed that we’d like to maintain some of the cottages original character and charm. Having refurbished the cottages original pine plank doors, we were keen to make a feature of them. Due to the size of the doors, they weren’t suitable to be used in a traditional swing system as they consumed quite a lot of valuable space. We decided a sliding door system would be the best solution but we needed something which would suit the traditional décor”, commented Reece.
P C Henderson’s Rustic sliding barn door hardware was identified as the best solution for the project. With its beautifully crated barn style hangers, Rustic 80 complemented the original pine plank doors perfectly.
“After seeing an image of sliding barn door hardware on social media, we knew this was the perfect product to incorporate into our renovation. We carried out some online research and came across the Rustic 80 by P C Henderson, after reading through some positive reviews we were confident it was the right product for us and we weren’t disappointed”.
By installing a sliding door system over a traditional swing door system, Reece and Zoe were able to save valuable space in both the bedroom and bathroom as well as adding a unique feature to the property.
“We’re more than happy with our Rustic kits and we would definitely consider P C Henderson’s hardware on future projects or a possible extension to the cottage”, continued Reece.
Ideal for barn conversions and period properties, Rustic 80 is a great way to add a unique feature to the home. Available in a matt black or stainless steel finish, the system caters for doors weighing up to 80kg and will soon have a Soft Stop available to further add to the refinement of the product.
