Things to Consider When Picking the Perfect Internal Doors for Your Home

November 30, 2020

Internal doors of home properties are designed to provide privacy over rooms and spaces. Almost all bathrooms, bedrooms, hallways, closets, and others are integrated with doors to effectively separate the spaces of these rooms from others. But apart from providing privacy and security, these doors are intended to complement the appearance and design elements of the rooms they cover.

If you are thinking of either building a new home or remodelling your current home, then you may want to consider some things in choosing the perfect internal doors for your home. To help you out, here are some of the few useful considerations in choosing the best internal doors for you.

Door Material

Solid wood doors are sturdy and durable since they are made from high-quality wood species such as mahogany, pine, and oak. They, however, shrink or expand randomly depending on the surrounding temperatures and humidity. Doors made from medium density fibreboard, alternatively, do not share the same problem of solid wood doors. Though, they are known to be less durable. Metal and glass doors are products of modern architecture, and that they can be used for functionality and design purposes.

Door Dimensions

The exact dimensions of your internal doors must be considered and obtained before buying them. Without knowing the required door size, you easily risk wasting your time and money. In knowing the dimensions of your door, you must identify the height of your door, which can be obtained by closely measuring the left, centre, and right portions of your property’s existing door frame. The width, alternatively, must be measured horizontally at the bottom, middle, and top of the door frame. 

Door Framing

And speaking of framing, your door frame must be installed correctly so it can sustain the quality of the door that you will be picking. Similar to the door material, your door frame must be made from high-quality material to ensure that it can tolerate the elements and conditions of the opening or close action of the door. Another thing to remember about doors is that they can be grouped into pre-hung or slabs. Pre-hung doors are comprised of doors, frame, and hinges that are attached to the doorjamb. Slab doors, alternatively, are solely doors that can be purchased if you already own an existing door frame.

Door Styles

Your internal doors can boast different design elements that make them suitable for your home. They can even blend well with your existing accessories, furnishings, and other parts of your home. In choosing the style of your doors, you must highly consider the preferences of your family to ensure that they also get to enjoy the quality and design of your new internal doors.

Door Swing

One underestimated element when it comes to picking internal doors is their door swing action. Doors can be either right-hand or left-hand swing, which can be a defining factor since it determines the installation location of hinges and handles. You should, however, avoid swinging the doors open into a hall or corridor to avoid hitting people on the face.

Consolidating all these factors can help you choose the best internal doors for your home. To help you obtain the best internal doors for your home, you can give us a call at Shandfield Doors.
