Know Your Options for Choosing Interior Doors

Mar 30th 2015 at 3:54 AM

Doors form a large part of the visual space in any house and thus, they demand as much care as any other installation in the house. If you have been looking around for ideas, here are some that may help.

Sliding Interior Doors

In limited spaces, conventional hinged doors don’t make much sense. They can always be replaced by smart sliding doors. Moreover, large closets must always be fixed with sliding or bi-fold doors.

The sliding door in this picture makes it possible to utilize the length of the aisle space to cleverly accommodate a utility closet.

Wisely chosen sliding doors not only save lots of space but also add a sophisticated and modern look to the interiors. For instance, this frosted glass door adds to the elegance of the off-white walls and snugly hides the bathroom when closed.

Wooden Interior Doors

The natural charm of wood sets a rustic tone. The warmth and strength of wooden doors gives a comforting and inviting feel to any space. Moreover, good quality solid wooden doors can last a lifetime.

A very desirable quality of wood is that it can be carved into endless designs and patterns. The door here has been carved by the wood burning tool, which uses pyrography to make art on wood.

An interior wooden door with such beautiful patterns are no less than an artwork.

Wood comes in different shades depending upon the tree it is sourced from. This Mahogany door here presents a fitting complement  to the light walnut flooring. The gentle arch on the upper edge gives it a slightly elvish look and adds a dimension of old-world charm.

Wooden dividers are a great way to create separation between large spaces or enclose a small private area within a huge room. Needless to say, they are exclusively used for interior spaces.

Bi-fold Interior Doors

If there is a large area to cover and sliding doors don’t appeal much to you, then you can go for bi-fold doors. These doors are great space savers and since they can be opened in sections, they allow easy customization of spaces.

The bi-fold doors here act as full-length dividers as well as doors while providing security. As you can see, these doors can be opened completely or partially as required.

Bi-fold doors are available in several materials like glass, wood, and PVC just like other styles of doors. This PVC bathroom door here is specially designed to keep steam in.

So, here were some ideas to consider while planning doors for your property. For more insight into what kind of material would best suit your purposes, your contractor should be able to help you out.
