About Internal Oak Doors
Sturdy, strong and available in a range of standard designs with attractive grains running through the wood, oak doors generally are popular for their durability and because they tend to last longer than many other sorts of wooden doors.
Treated well with a preservative, and varnished regularly, their lifespan can be measured in decades rather than years, and oak is highly resistant to general wear and tear.
Because it is a dense material, oak also has strong soundproofing qualities when compared with cheaper types of wood.
Of course, you will need to consider budget, style and the finish you want ? whether you want wax, oil or to stain your oak internal doors to keep a natural-looking wooden finish.
As for choosing the door that?s right for your interior, consider the style of your home and go for something that complements that period or style. For a country cottage, for example, a ledge and brace door, with horizontal and diagonal slats of wood on the back of them, will look great. For a more modern home, something slim with vertical panels will give a sleek, contemporary appearance.
At the same time, you have the choice to choose glazed doors, which could be an attractive option if your home doesn?t get much natural daylight. Make the most of the light that is entering the property and let it travel from room to room. One choice for this kind of door could be a French-style model with four panels of clear glass.
In some circumstances, you may need your doors to meet minimum fire safety standards, but products like engineered oak fire doors are readily available.
