Choosing an appropriate wooden door is an important step towards fully realising your home interior and exterior design ideals – thus it is important that you take the time to ensure you make the right decision.
The first thing you need to decide is whether the wood door you are looking for is intended for interior or exterior use. Exterior wooden doors are designed to be more hard-wearing in order to stand up to weather erosion, and are often glazed several times ; in contrast interior doors are often made of more lightweight woods and are typically covered only by undercoat and gloss.
Once you have decided whether you are searching for an interior or exterior door, the next step is to decide what kind of wood you would like your door to be made from. Each wood-type has a range of different properties which make it suitable for different environments. For instance doors made from oak are known for being a strong and hard, capable of withstanding the rigours of the outdoors, whereas the classic pine door has pleasing aesthetic properties, making it a perfect interior door.
After choosing the wood type, your next major consideration should be the decoration of your door. Are you hoping to purchase a traditional solid wood , panelled door or something more unusual such as a bamboo door ? Are you looking for a high quality moulded white door or a triple glazed oak door with glass inserts? The possibilities really are endless. Take a look at what's on offer and keep your eyes peeled for doors you like at the homes of family and friends, otherwise you might find yourself overwhelmed by the choice on offer!
Equally as important as choosing the correct door handle, letter box or hinges is deciding whether you are looking for a traditional door, a bi-fold or a vu-fold . The main consideration when making this decision is personal preference, although there may be practical issues regarding fitting more unusual doors.
The doors in your house, particularly the front door, will often be the first impression visitors get of your home, and thus it is worth investing time in your decision. A good set of interior wooden doors or a well-made wooden front door also have the potential to add value to your home.
