Just like replacing external doors, you can greatly improve the internal appearance of the home by simply changing the existing internal doors. Before you do this, it’s important to consider the functionality of the door and how it will work in order to make your space visually appealing.
Before replacing existing internal doors, ensure that you consider the options available for your type of home. With an older house, it may have had numerous door upgrades carried out prior to it becoming your home. In such a case, you will need to select a standard option that will not only be functional in different parts of your home, but also have the aesthetic appeal to improve the look of the entire house.
In addition to a door looking great, it needs to serve the purpose for which it was intended. For instance, solid wood will be less prone to damage and will also lock sound in, something which might not be possible with hollow core doors. Bi-fold internal doors are an ideal choice for a room with limited space. Other options to consider include accordion, pocket, faux wood and fire resistant.
Some internal door options are only appropriate in special areas of the home. For example, glass panelled internal doors may not be ideal for a home with young children, however, the advantage is that they allow light which can give an airy, spacious feel to a room.
When replacing a new internal door, it is important to ensure that it is properly installed and secured, particularly with solid wood doors, as some types are prone to misalignment. You also need to decide on a choice of pre-hung or blank doors, although blank option might be more practical for internal doors.
