With many different types of interior doors available, it can be difficult to know where to start when picking new ones for your home. When customers approach us for advice about which design to choose, we always recommend considering the following factors before reaching a decision:
1. Think about the style/overlook you want
It’s important to have an idea about the overall look you wish to achieve. This could be to complement existing features/décor in the room or to transform the appearance of the space completely. Decide on whether you want to create a traditional or more contemporary feel as well as what functional aspects the doors need (e.g. dividing rooms or letting more light into a living space).
2. Think about which material will work best
Another important consideration is the material for your internal doors. At the moment oak is a very popular choice due to its tones and the warmth it adds to rooms. Wooden doors which incorporate glass panels are also commonly chosen as they allow spaces to be divided, without making the rooms unnecessarily darker in the process.
3. Think about hinges and accessories
Whilst deciding upon the type of door it’s also important to think about the practicalities – in particular, the places where the hinges will go and which way the doors will open and close. Remember to take furniture into account when thinking about these aspects. Also consider what accessories such as handles are available and which type will best fit with the space the door is being installed in.
