At least two baby gates is optimal in a home with a staircase since both the top and bottom of the stairs present a danger to a crawling infant or a toddler just learning to walk.

This gate features a versatile style that would be lovely in a rustic nursery for a baby boy or girl. Do you need an extra wide baby gate? No problem! The beauty of having a woodworking professional at your disposal is that there is a better chance to get a perfect fit even when odd opening sizes come into play.
An extra wide (up to a point, of course) baby gate can be managed but please be aware that these lovely doors are solid wood and therefore fairly heavy. Take care to make your measurements in such a way that the hinges can be drilled into studs for the best support.
Tip: Locate the center of the stud before screwing
the anchor board to the wall. Attach the hinges to the gate and use a level before screwing the hinges into the anchor board and the wall stud to be sure everything is straight.
Also, plan to have a helper on board for installation since installing a wood baby gate can be a challenge for one person.
