Picking your Internal Doors for your new build or renovation.

Many people pay a lot of attention to their external doors, and with good reason, however it’s important to consider your internal doors with just as much thought!

There are many factors to think about, which will dictate the size, type and style of the door. Things like the flow through from room to room, what type of space you’re working with such as private, public, needs more light, or whether the space is formal or informal – phew! That’s a lot to consider!

In this blog, we’ll discuss 3 popular types of internal doors to put on your list:

Swinging doors

Yep, we’re starting easy!  Swinging doors are one of the most common internal door, with a variety of options to suit your home, from modern to traditional. These are hinged into a door frame and are used predominantly in kitchens, laundries, dining rooms, home office, bedroom and bathrooms. Pricing can range depending on your budget and there’s always options to suit everyone.

Sliding doors

If you’re short on space, sliding doors can be a fantastic option.  Cavity and pocket sliding doors are a perfect option where you can hide the door within the wall cavity, allowing a clean transition from room to room.  Another popular sliding door alternative is the barn door, in particular for country-style homes.   Rather than hiding the door within the wall cavity, it’s positioned on the outside of the frame and is larger than the door space.  These are best used in spaces that have larger entrances however they can be scaled back or modified if you’re keen to use them in a smaller space such as a bedroom.

Glass doors

If you haven’t considered glass doors as an internal option, then you must! These are particularly good for darker and smaller rooms, where light can be issue.  Glass can be incorporated into different types of frames such as timber, aluminium or composite.  You can also get them hinged, folding, stacking and sliding, to maximise that light flow between rooms. On top of that, you also have the option to choose clear, frosted and decorative depending on whether you’re after light, privacy or style!

If you’re planning a new home build or a renovation, then make sure you give adequate thought to each room and how the space will be used and select your interior doors accordingly!
