About Wooden Interior Doors

Wooden interior doors can definitely help lend a sense of elegance to almost any room, and are currently available at a range of different price points between around £40 and £200.

People choose to swap out their interior doors for a number of different reasons. One is that they offer the opportunity to let more light into a dingy space. They can also provide a more modern feel in a space that's a bit old-fashioned, when created using a brighter wood.

There are certain things that need to be considered when choosing new doors. The first thing to note is whether it's necessary to add a new central hinge: this is often necessary in cases where the new door is heavier than the previous one. It's also a good idea to check if the timber strips around the inside of the frame will need to be removed - this can occur if the new door is slightly wider. Indeed, on some occasions it may be necessary for the frame to need trimming in order to help the door fit.

It's also important to double check if the new door complies with fire regulations (this is doubly important for landlords or those designing a commercial property).

Just as is the case with main or front doors, wooden interior doors can be bought either as plain timber, as a solid piece of wood but with a carved pattern, or with panes of glass included as part of the design- the latter especially is ideal for helping to let the light in.
