Choosing an Interior Door - The Style Choices You Have Available
Doors help make a statement and if you are replacing your interior doors, renovating your home or building a new home, you must carefully consider the choices you have available. On the whole, there are many interior door styles available and these include:
Flush doors are the most basic kind of interior door you can install. They are not very expensive and most homeowners settle for this style. Flush doors also provide a clean and classic look to your home and are completely flat.
Panel doors are most commonly installed in residential buildings. These have a square or rectangle pattern on them which can be a single panel or more than one, with smaller panels. For extra glam, you can also insert glass and ask for rounded tops or a more decorative finish.
French doors are decorative and more dramatic and give a more formal look. For this reason, these are best used for formal sitting areas or dining rooms. French doors consist of two hinge-hung doors that swing towards the wall when opened or closed. They can also contain decorative panels and use glass inserts.
As the name suggests, these doors are opened and closed by sliding them on a track. These are less commonly used and are based on the personal choice of a homeowner if they want to have them installed. Sliding doors help save space as well as they don’t open backwards or forwards.
When it comes to installing interior doors, it's important to consider their usefulness, space needed and the room in which they will be installed. Doors such as sliding and French doors are more decorative and may contain glass, making them a good choice for your lounge, dining, or master bedroom while for doors of other rooms; you can go for the flush or panel door styles.
