Top tips for buying an internal or external timber door

Friday, December 01, 2017

Revamping your interior or exterior space is a great way to add a new style and freshen up your property. In some cases, something as simple as changing a timber door can create a striking look and alongside other easy updates, could also add value to your home.

Timber door considerations
There are a few things to consider when replacing interior and exterior doors. For example:

  • Select a door that suits the period of your property
    For traditional homes, doors with panels give added depth to match the look of a room, whereas sleek minimalistic doors pair beautifully with contemporary designs.

  • Choose the perfect material
    Oak internal doors are a popular choice and can be matched with furnishings to complement interior décor. Primed or moulded timber doors offer a choice of colours and panel designs for affordable and attractive updates. Wood veneer doors are also a great way to refresh a house and are ideal for front doors and external entrances.

  • Consider paned designs or internal glazing
    Choosing a timber door with glazing inserts is an ideal way to bring natural light into a room. Frosted glass is also great for front doors if you need extra privacy.
