Internal Door Buying Guide

Whether its finishing touches on a new build, a full renovation, or finally getting around to updating those 1970’s glazed doors (you know the ones we mean), we have gathered all of our expert knowledge and packed it into this blog, to guide you along on your quest for new doors.

No doubt your Pinterest boards are brimming with ideas, therefore, let us help you achieve your dream look with our internal door buying guide.  Let’s get started. . . 


Modern or Traditional?

This, of course, is down to personal preference, but choosing the right look can go along way.  While there are no hard and fast rules about choosing a style, it is worth bearing in mind the overall look of your home.  As much as you may love the clean lines of an industrial internal door, a classic country style door may be better suited, therefore it’s worth bearing this in mind.  


To Glaze Or Not To Glaze?

There’s no denying that glazed doors are simply stunning.  Allowing natural light to flood your room, they are a firm favourite amongst many of our customers.  However, if there are sticky fingers and muddy paw prints to factor in, then you may find yourself a slave to the Windolene if you were to opt for a fully glazed door.  But don’t worry, all is not lost, how about a half-glazed door giving you the best of both worlds? You’re welcome.


Safety First

If fire doors are a requirement in your home, or it’s a priority on your wish list, then we are happy to assist.  All of our fire doors are fully approved, with a 10-year guarantee, giving you peace of mind whether it’s an FD30 or FD60 fire door.  These doors are the perfect mix of practicality and style as they are available in a range of finishes that will suit any decor.


Choosing The Material

Choosing the right material can make all the difference, so it’s worth taking the time to consider your options.  Oak doors offer the most versatility, white doors are more traditional, walnut doors are dark and dramatic and grey doors are ultra-modern, but ultimately the choice is yours, your home, your way.


Choosing a Finish

Once you have homed in on the chosen style, it’s all about the finish.  Paint, gloss, varnish or stain, this is where you can really make them your own.  But if all that seems too much like hard work, then our pre-finished doors are for you!  With nothing more to do than wait for the joiner to arrive, you can start enjoying your doors the minute they are hung.  We just love the pre-finished oak doors, beautiful in appearance from the minute you receive them.


Confirm The Size Before You Buy

This may seem like an obvious step in the buying cycle but you’d be surprised at how much door sizes can vary, even under the same roof!  You may find that your upstairs doors measure different to downstairs so we always recommend double-checking before ordering, as there isn’t a one size fits all, and you don’t want to be disappointed on the all-important delivery day.
