Suffolk - The Imitation Game

The Suffolk door really is a design classic. A timeless six-panel style, equally at home in a traditional cottage kitchen or a modern minimalist penthouse.

The Suffolk Door really is a design classic. A timeless six-panel style, equally at home in a traditional cottage kitchen or a modern minimalist penthouse. We know it’s a great door because we designed it.

It’s an XL Joinery original, and one of the most popular styles on the market.  And with the Suffolk Essential, Original, and Statement models, we’ve got interior door options for any budget too.

But true originality comes with competition. Since we launched the Suffolk, budget imitations and crude copycats have popped up looking to tempt buyers away from the real deal. The kind of mass-produced doors fitted in typical new builds or cheap renovations as standard, chosen for looks over performance.

So, don’t be fooled. Choosing a Suffolk from anyone but XL Joinery is the kind of risk that could make or break a project. Here’s why…

The Oak

We use beautiful white Oak veneer, with deep XL Joinery V grooves and matched inserts. Imitators and competitors can’t match that attention to detail. We’ve seen all sorts, from grooves that show chunks of chipboard, to mis-matched wood grain that completely ruins the aesthetic.

The Core

Every XL Joinery Suffolk features a solid core, engineered for performance and longevity. We’re proud that even our Essential option could outperform a typical hollow core imitation. And we’re the only place you can buy a 100% solid engineered Oak Statement, too.

The Performance

That solid core means exceptional performance. Our doors lead the way for heat retention and sound insulation, keeping you warm and preserving the peace and quiet. A cheap imitation with a hollow core just won’t match up.

The Guarantee

We’re proud of every single Suffolk door. That’s why we offer a comprehensive guarantee 10 years for an Essential, 25 years for the Original and a gold standard 30 years for the Suffolk Statement. Our competitors offer as low as a year, or nothing at all.

The Sourcing

Our environment is a vital resource, and we use FSC certified timber for the Suffolk Original and Statement. And our entire business has just gone Carbon Neutral. You’ll have a hard time matching those green credentials with budget imitators.
