Choosing the Right Interior Door

The doors inside of our homes provide privacy between family members and separate spaces. But when considering interior door options, we often overlook an important fact: interior doors can be unique and stylish. Instead of opting for a simple interior door style, open the doors to new design opportunities. Consider an interior door that shows your personality and upgrades the style of your home, and you will see a very noticeable difference in your home’s interior. We have come up with a list of things for you to consider while choosing the right interior door.

Door Style

The style of interior door that you select can completely change the look of your home. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a door with personality to reflect your preferences. This will help to add a fun aspect to the room. Remember that most doors in your home should have some similar elements to help with the flow throughout the house.

An important thing to consider when choosing a style is the size of the room. For smaller rooms, avoid large, bulky doors as they will become the focal point of the room and make them feel smaller.

There are several door styles to choose from! If you need help deciding, call us.

Pocket Doors: Slide into the wall, instead of swinging open. Pocket doors are most convenient for small rooms or rooms with an awkward layout where a swinging door would interfere with objects.

Folding Doors: Usually for smaller spaces such as closets, laundry rooms, or pantries.

Barn DoorsIf you’re looking for something with rustic charm, or want a room that has a more industrial feel, these doors are the way to go.

French Doors: French doors are perfect for separating two spaces without fully closing either of the spaces off. These doors have a frame with several transparent panels and can be customized to suit your needs.

Door Swing

For your convenience, you can choose the direction that your interior door swings. In order to be the most efficient, a door shouldn’t open into a hallway as it will block yours’ and your guests’ direct paths. Consider if you want a right-hand or left-hand door swing for each room, depending on the shape of each space.

Door Framing

You wouldn’t put a beautiful photograph in a poorly built frame would you? The same goes for the doors that you select in your home. A poorly made frame will take away from the door itself, and can even cause damage to the door.

Door Material

Depending on the style of your home, you have several options for the material of your interior doors. Solid wood, metal, glass, hollow core (plywood), or a wood-fibre blend.
