Choosing the right internal doors for your home

You’ve spent long hours visualising the perfect elements for your chosen room. The paint is picked out, the furniture has been scouted, the flooring is in mind, you’ve even picked a variety of finishes to add a little extra style to the room. An element that is often forgotten that can tie a space together is the door.

With a plethora of options available to you, picking the door to complete the look can be confusing. We’ve selected a few popular choices for you to consider, for your next internal door.

Glazed internal doors

Glazed internal doors encourage light to pass freely between rooms and look great in the process. They create a transparent barrier between areas of the home and are particularly popular for dining and living rooms or kitchens.

Most manufacturers will allow you to customise the door’s colour, finishes and even choose the amount of glazing. These internal doors are often more affordable than their exterior counterparts due to the fact that they don’t need to be insulated. Although, double glazed doors could be considered for additional comfort.

Solid frame internal doors

Understandably, the bi fold doors ability to close off a room but retract fully makes it a popular choice for those seeking this layout. Privacy isn’t the only benefit of bi fold doors.
